In my 79 years, I have written one “Letter To The Editor.” My second is to impart my support for Russell Black of Wilton for the Senate District 17 seat in the Maine Legislature in the upcoming election.

I have known Black for quite some time and have had complete faith in his role as the representative in District 114. I have complete confidence that he will continue to represent residents as the next Senator.

Too many times, people complain about the way a legislator votes, but frequently they have no idea why that legislator voted the was he/she did. Russell Black doesn’t always vote along party lines but votes his conscience or applies common sense to his voting decisions, usually voting on behalf of the majority of his constituents.

Charles Tappan, Wilton
