    Beware the single-minded, single-agenda candidate for elected town office. In challenging times, the citizenry is better served by a team of super-heroes than a collection of lone stars. Cape Elizabeth needs people like David Hillman on the School Board. He is a thoughtful, deliberate decisi...
