    Katz a strong leader who works across party lines

    I wholeheartedly support Roger Katz, R-Augusta, and his state Senate re-election campaign. Above all, Roger is a cheerleader for Augusta. A lifelong resident and active member of our community, he will always have Augusta’s back when it comes to politics. Roger was the driving force for the revitalization of Water Street during his days as […]

    FairPoint impasse a fight against corporate greed

    The impasse at FairPoint is not just about FairPoint, it represents the truth about the direction this country has taken in the last two decades and will continue to go unless we stand up together and support our middle class, the hard-working people who have made this country what it was. The middle class is […]

    Bellows supports campaign finance reform

    Sen. Susan Collins voted against a constitutional amendment limiting enormous donations for politics. Collins voted for super rich who can buy their own way better than most people can — against “liberty and justice for all,” from the pledge of allegiance to the flag. Collins makes worse the gap between rich and poor, giving super […]

    Nutting brings valuable perspective to debates

    Rep. Robert Nutting, R-Oakland, has long been an effective leader for the people of District 77 and for Maine. With his institutional knowledge and willingness to listen to and learn from people on all sides of the issues, Nutting brings a valuable perspective to debates at the State House. I was privileged to be a […]

    Fairness needed before peace, healing of hearts

    Kudos to Ridgley Fuller for the excellent Maine Compass, “Senators use our tax dollars in unquestioning support of Israel,” on the Opinion page on Sept. 12. While we so unfairly support Israel, we only increase the Muslim ill will around the world. Continued Israeli retaliations and aggressive actions will only deepen the wounds and never […]

    To make needed changes, we need new legislators

    Alan Tibbetts, a Democrat, is a longtime Sidney resident who is seeking to represent the residents of Oakland and Sidney (House District 77) in Augusta this fall. I know that he will promote higher paying jobs and not let Maine’s middle class fall further behind. Tibbetts believes that affordable health care should be available to […]

    Fulford fair, respectful of everyone he deals with

    One thing we all want in our government representatives is integrity. That is why I’m voting for Jonathan Fulford, of Monroe, Democratic candidate for state Senate. I have never met anyone with more integrity than Jonathan. I have worked on building jobs with him for almost 30 years and have found him to be fair […]

    September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

    I can’t believe it has been 13 years since I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and treated in August 2001. I am still healthy. Between then and now, the world of those afflicted with prostate cancer has changed dramatically. The best change is vast improvement in quality of life and long-range outcomes. In Augusta, we […]

    Katz more interested in good policy than politics

    Amongst the candidates for whom I will vote in November is Sen. Roger Katz, District 15. A vote for Roger is guaranteed representation for the entire district, regardless of one’s party affiliation. Roger works across party lines to provide sound economic and social policies for Maine. I believe Roger is more interested in good policy […]

    Michaud is a longtime champion for veterans

    I read about Mike Michaud and must comment. It is said Mike has no morals because he may have changed an opinion or two. I have known Mike since 1994, and one of his greatest strengths is his ability to listen to all sides and then make up his mind. Regarding the situation at the […]
