  • On November 6, we will decide who will represent us in our local, state and federal government. Most of us will base those decisions on who we believe best represents the values, policies and future we want. Having spent the last 44 years . . .
  • Shame on you, Senator Collins. Your legacy is now established as an integrity-lacking partisan who supports the pathological liar in the White House and the duplicitous predator now on the Court. The sham is yours, but the shame is . . .
  • We must admit that the Republican party of 2018 is not the Republican party that our parents or grandparents trusted in 1952. Compare Dwight Eisenhower, who was voted Gallup’s most admired man 12 times . . .
  • I am writing to encourage you to go to the polls and vote in support of Wendy Pelletier for State Senator for Knox County. Wendy is a hard worker, having served on the Board of Selectmen in Hope for several years, she is now willing to serve . . .
  • Saudi Arabia has, seemingly, killed a dissident. A journalist has said that if the Saudis are not punished for this then we are complicit. Trump took the opportunity to prove the U.S. of A. is an immoral fascist state. He, like his handlers . . .
  • Voters in the state of Maine take referendum questions very seriously. The majority of voters have voted at least once, sometimes twice, for state funding of education, Medicaid expansion and Ranked-Choice Voting. The options were finite . . .
  • Please vote for Joanne Moesswilde, she’s on the ballot, and Jim Merkel and Ellie Daniels, both of whom you must write in. This is the chance to take back our city. Our current city council did not involve the citizenry when they invited a . . .
  • Working middle-class voters in the Second Congressional District — be aware of the Republican plan to cut Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and health care as stated recently by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R). . . .
  • I am writing about three people who are running for the Belfast City Council. Neal Harkness has been a tireless representative for all of the people of Belfast. His day job is driving people all over the state for medical appointments . . .
  • When I cast my vote next month for city councilor, it will be for Mary Mortier. I can’t think of anyone who takes her responsibilities as a councilor any more seriously than Mary does. Mary and I have known each other for over 18 years as . . .
  • I am voting for the three write-in candidates for City Council of Belfast, Maine, because they will be listeners for understanding among council members.

    Listening for understanding is not the same as listening for agreement or disagreement. . . .

  • A song that was popular in the not so recent past began with the line “What the world needs now is …” While it is easy to complete the line, it is appropriate to this election cycle to replace the familiar ending with “moderation” or . . .
  • I’m writing in support of the re-election campaign of State Representative Stanley Paige Zeigler. Unfortunately, I can’t vote for him myself, because I don’t live in his district, the 96th. However, I’m proud to have been a friend of his for two decades . . .
