Although I will not be eligible to vote in Rockport on election day next month, I want to express my disappointment in the manner our town officials have handled the issue of locating a replacement for our beloved village library.
Many voters may choose to make the upcoming election a referendum on Donald Trump, whether about his persona or his record, though mid-term elections are at least as much about state and local issues as they are about the state of the nation, and this election is no exception.
One of the many reasons I will be voting for Senator Dave Miramant again this November 6 is because I know firsthand that he cares all year round. I've noticed in the past that some candidates seem to only care and talk to me around the election season.
When we find a person that draws us together, we should cast aside party politics, and be thankful that we’ll have an open ear in Augusta. Justin Thompson is this man, and he’s running for our local Maine House District 92.
I’ve known Vicki Doudera for about 10 years and I was thrilled when I first found out that she had intentions of running for our state representative. Vicki is committed to representing everyone. She’s compassionate and one of the best listeners and communicators that I know.
