    Lachowicz does her best to support needs of Maine people

    I support re-electing Colleen Lachowicz, D-Waterville, for Senate District 16, which includes Albion, Benton, Clinton, Fairfield, Unity Township, Waterville and Winslow in Kennebec County. Colleen is an effective senator who served admirably as chairwoman of the Local and County Government Committee and as a member of the Health and Human Services Committee. Her experience providing […]

    Pouliot’s work has earned him another term in House

    I have been very impressed with the work of Augusta Republican Rep. Matt Pouliot in his first term in the Maine Legislature. Working across the aisle to solve the biggest problems in our community and our state, he has without a doubt earned another term. Pouliot was a tireless advocate for fixing Mount Vernon Avenue […]

    Warren’s business skill will serve taxpayers well

    I am writing to urge the voters of Manchester, West Gardiner and Hallowell to support Charlotte Warren for state representative. Charlotte, a Hallowell Democrat, is well-known for her advocacy of women’s issues and for her successful record as mayor of Hallowell, but I know her best in her role as business person. Charlotte provides first-class […]

    Kennebec Arsenal victim of broken promises

    I have walked past a sign at the Kennebec Arsenal on my way to and from work for years. The sign, erected by Niemann Capital, promised restoration of the national historic landmark, claiming it would offer a “vibrant riverfront campus for boutique hotel, condos, restaurant, retail and office space.” The promises were broken. How can […]

    Marks uniquely qualified to be state representative

    I am writing to support Tim Marks’ candidacy for re-election to represent District 87 (Randolph, Pittston, Alna and Wiscasset) in the House of Representatives. Marks, D-Pittston, brings to this job a unique set of experience and interests that make him my choice for representative. He is a retired state trooper, which gives him important experience […]

    Robbery on front page, but King’s support of Cutler buried

    I am perplexed why in the Aug. 19 issue of the Kennebec Journal, the robbery at the pharmacy in Randolph warranted front-page coverage (and half the page at that) when these robberies are a common event. In the same edition, however, the announcement of Sen. Angus King’s support of Eliot Cutler for governor, an enormous […]

    Opportunity Maine helps make education affordable

    As Maine’s college freshman prepare to begin fall classes and seniors plan their futures, I’d like to remind readers about Opportunity Maine, an important initiative to help college graduates. Opportunity Maine reimburses college graduates who continue to live and work in Maine for the educational loan payments they make each year through a state income […]

    Facts, not sentimentality should govern immigration

    I am very disappointed by the recent newspaper editorial coverage about the border crisis. The Aug. 7 editorial, “Border crisis doesn’t ease GOP stance in House,” states that the House could help the situation by supporting funding bills like the Senate’s and implied that supporting last year’s “comprehensive” bill would more thoroughly deal with the […]

    Waterville Fire Department seeks old photos, stories

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, then there are volumes of stories to be told about the Waterville Fire Department and the people who have made the department what it is today. The Waterville Fire Department has a long and interesting history, and compiling that history is a project I have been working […]

    Fatal crash investigations don’t test for drugs

    Whenever a person dies in a motor vehicle crash in Maine, the police conduct a thorough investigation. But, because of the way the law is written, those investigations often miss a potentially critical piece of evidence: the presence of drugs in the driver’s system. Currently, police perform a vehicle autopsy and check everything from brake […]
