This is in response to the letter from Hope Herr, printed Oct. 1, "Time to change the dress." She states that for the past 40 years, Maine has had the same "political dress" in the Blaine House.
My research shows that in the past 40 years there have been six governors — three Democrats, one Republican and two independents.
The Republican, John McKernan, and the two independents, James Longley and Angus King, served a total of 20 years. That leaves 20 years for the Democrats — not exactly the 40 years Ms. Herr stated.
If a change is needed, put a real dress in the Blaine House — Elizabeth "Libby" Mitchell.
