    Attack ads against Susan Collins say that Washington has changed her. We know that isn’t true. The only thing about her that has changed is the increase in her resolve to fight for the working men and women here in Maine. What also hasn’t changed are the lies that the dark money from out of […]

    Rich Lowry: There isn’t a Russian under every bed

    The Russians haven’t loomed so large as a sinister hand influencing the course of American society since the Red Scares of the 20th century.

    Elaine Doble-Verrill: Blastow ‘a breath of fresh air’

    Jen Blastow is a breath of fresh air and gives me hope for our future. Over the past 14 years I’ve seen that she is respectful, a good listener and she is committed to family, education, our environment and our community.

    Emily Ecker: Western Maine needs Sessions’ leadership

    Who is looking out for the real folks in Western Maine? It’s not enough to claim to be looking out for our “best interests” when the real folks in Western Maine are hurting. We have folks choosing between medication and feeding their families. We have families on the brink of homelessness because we have very […]

    Thelma Beauvais: Elect Libby to House District 64

    I have been working with Laurel Libby since the beginning of her campaign. I cannot believe the energy she brings forth every day, searching for new ways to resolve the issues we face as a state and the barriers that stand in our way. She is tireless in her focus to get information out so […]

    Whitney and Bruce Condit: Claxton a ‘tireless advocate’ for Auburn

    We are so grateful that Ned Claxton is again running for state Senate in District 20. We are most impressed with his integrity, his ability to listen, and his dedication to collaboration — all qualities that we value highly, yet seem so rare in today’s politics.

    Eric and Stacey Whittington: Jim Handy ‘a true representative’

    In this day and age, when so many elections are focused on keeping people divided, Rep. Jim Handy has shown time and time again that he is comfortable working with Democrats, Republicans and independents alike to pass legislation that helps to make life easier for all his constituents. For example, he sponsored legislation to fund […]

    Edward Walworth: Sickness rather than health

    I have many problems with Donald Trump, but as a physician I would like to focus on his effect on our health over the last four years. He has tried to eliminate the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) without producing any replacement. He distrusts medical expertise. His disregard for science imperiled his own health and has […]
