Wall Street hedge fund manager, S. Donald Sussman, husband of Democratic U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree, has donated $100,000 to the Yes on One campaign.

He obviously doesn’t like the new law, so he wrote out a check. This money, combined with other large out-of-state donations, is being used to repeal the much-needed election reform that was passed by our Legislature last spring.

I will vote no on Question 1 because I feel that the benefit of being able to register and vote on election day does not protect the integrity of the election process.

Town clerks and volunteers have their hands full on election day checking in people to vote, counting absentee ballots, assisting voters and answering questions. I also would encourage the Legislature to pass voter ID in the next session.
