    I wish to urge voters of House District 108 (Cumberland, North Yarmouth, Chebeague Island and Long Island) to cast their votes on Nov. 2 for Meredith Strang Burgess.

    Sen. Larry Bliss states that his legislative aims, if re-elected, will be to balance the best interests of the individuals and families he represents with promotion of business and jobs and protection of the environment. What a difficult task to coordinate all this. Often, enhancement of o...
