  • Letter: Support for Stromgren in Topsham House race

    Green Independent candidate Daniel Stromgren is a strong advocate for those whose voice is not always heard. He is knowledgeable and informed about the most pressing issues. I had the pleasure of working at the same mental health agency as Daniel. His belief in working with everyone to find resol...

  • Letter: Re-elect Graham in House District 46

    Of great importance to me is the spirit of cooperation between people of all political stripes as we work together to make our town a great place to live. Democratic state Rep. Anne Graham, running for re-election in North Yarmouth's House District 46, has been part of that community spiri...

  • Letter: Re-elect Lennon in Cape Elizabeth

    I am writing to urge the voters of Cape Elizabeth to re-elect Sara Lennon to the Town Council. Sara has been a thoughtful, intelligent voice on the council during her first term.

    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...

  • Letter: Scarborough right to rein in horse owners

    I would like to thank the Scarborough Town Council and everyone who responded positively to the changes being made to the "horses on the beach" ordinance, which will now require the display of a large, visible permit number by all horse riders on the beach. Hopefully the visible permit wi...

  • Letter: Keep Willard Beach open to all

    In 1989, when I moved to the Willard Square area, I began walking on Willard Beach regularly, mostly in the early mornings before I went to work. What a privilege and joy to be able to experience such beauty. The other "regular strollers" were friendly, welcoming and respectful not only to...

  • Letter: Keep Willard Beach unique

    We have been homeowners in South Portland for 2 1/2 years. We visited many coastal communities before deciding the city offered both the sense of community and recreational areas that we wanted our children to experience. We are pleased to have met many friendly residents and enjoy patronizing the...

  • Letter: Protect people, not dogs, at Willard Beach

    As the election nears, I want to point out a few things for people to think about when it comes to the ordinance change for Willard Beach in South Portland. The biggest reason I support it is because I have a problem with allowing my grandchildren (or me for that matter) to play in the same san...
