    Lachowicz approachable, visible, willing to listen

    As a Winslow resident, educator and parent of a child with a life-threatening heart condition, I support Sen. Colleen Lachowicz, D-Waterville, for re-election to the state Senate. Colleen has always demonstrated her support to our students and educators by coming into classrooms and attending student events like the Global Day of Play, organized by Winslow […]

    Katz willing to strike a balance in partisan politics

    I offer my support in the campaign to re-elect Sen. Roger Katz, R-Augusta (District 15). Roger is one of the finest, caring, hard-working people for Maine that I’ve known. He’s up early and home late while still caring for his friends and family. Roger never seems to be in a rush, always concerned about the […]

    We are all responsible for a healthy community

    I had the privilege to attend the 2014 Somerset Public Health celebration this evening. There I was able to see and share with many of the hardworking people of action in our communities. Bound together by a shared commitment to improving the lives of all people in our communities, we celebrated Jackman’s leadership team’s ability […]

    LePage’s actions an embarrassment to Maine

    A presidential visit is long remembered by a community. In 1955, Gov. Edmund Muskie welcomed President Dwight Eisenhower on his fishing trip to Maine. In 1963, Gov. John Reed shared the stage with President John Kennedy at the University of Maine. When the Obama family vacationed in Maine, no governor welcomed them. This is not […]

    Bears not a real danger to Mainers

    I spent the better part of the last 50 years in Jackman. My mother was born there in 1935. My grandfather was born there in 1893. When I was very young, bears were as common as any other wild animal. The trash dumps, the restaurant dumpsters were full of food, trash cans were allowed everywhere. […]

    For integrity in Augusta, vote for Dowling

    Regarding Mike Byron’s recent letter of claims against Bill Dowling — Dowling has in the past and will in the future recuse himself of his involvement with Dirigo Management while mayor, thus avoiding any conflict. This letter was much ado about nothing yet coincidently acting as a spoiler for Dave Rollins. Don Roberts, a Kennebec […]

    Mayo-Wescott touts record as councilor

    I’m a candidate for the Ward 1 City Council seat this Nov. 4, because I believe that I have the experience and skill sets that are needed to move Augusta forward and position it for success. I am a four-term Augusta city councilor with an exemplary record that focused on economic development and got good […]

    Tibbetts would focus on fixing welfare

    It’s been a pleasure running for the state Legislature — knocking on thousands of doors, meeting voters and learning what they think is most important. It’s clear that welfare is the issue that concerns the most people. As a former fraud, waste and mismanagement auditor, I will seek effective ways to ensure assistance programs help […]

    Fliers misrepresent Rep. Fowle’s record

    I recently received a flier in the mail from the Ray Bates campaign. In it, he criticizes Lori Fowle’s voting record in the Maine House. The flier skews the facts of Rep. Fowle’s votes about welfare reform to the point of deceitful distortion. Bates is simply attempting to make political hay by twisting the fair […]

    Michaud measured, thoughtful and considerate

    Mike Michaud has been called dishonest by one of the gubernatorial candidates. In my opinion, there isn’t a dishonest bone in Mike’s body. One could go to Mike for a vote, advice, or just talking about a piece of legislation and be assured that his reaction would be measured, thoughtful, considerate even when he would […]
