  • Letter: Denno for Cumberland state representative

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45. Dale has worked in the public and private sector, and contributed countless hours to public service. In his various roles, he has had the opportunity to successfully work with b...

  • Letter: Innes replies to Payne

    OK, Tony Payne, here are the details that you didn't mention in your debut column last week. I make no apologies for my vote on municipal rights: LD 1028 would allow a municipality to adopt an ordinance that states that a corporation may not be recognized as a person. I believe th...

    Opponents of Question 1 on the November ballot have billed themselves as "Protect Maine Equality." They infer that if same-sex marriage fails, equality will go out the door with it.

  • Letter: Disturbed by Falmouth councilors

    Thank you for sharing Tony Payne's first column and your "justification" for it. Your disclosure that two Falmouth town councilors objected is disturbing, and odd. The attempt by councilors to muzzle you smacks of censorship, or worse. You are a free enterprise company, trying hard, lik...

  • Letter: Follow the money, vote yes on 3

    Last year I had the privilege of working with concerned Falmouth residents to stop the state-mandated school merger of Falmouth and SAD 51. I came to appreciate the strength of a grassroots effort. We were successful, and Falmouth voters convincingly rejected the proposed merger. However, the ...

  • Letter: Bergquist for Brunswick council

    I encourage voters in Brunswick's District 4 to elect Jason Bergquist to the Town Council. In light of the closing of Brunswick Naval Air Station, many people in our community are especially concerned about our town's economic development. As the owner of a small business on Maine Street, I b...
