Letters to the editor

  • Backing Bragdon in District 136

    Dear Editor: I am so delighted to recommend Kylie Bragdon for Maine State House of Representatives in District 136. I have been privileged to know Kylie and her family for years, and I know she will work hard and honestly for ordinary people like myself when she gets to Augusta. Kylie says she considers herself

  • Once burned, twice shy

    Dear Editor: It would seem that Senator Collins believes that if Brett Kavanaugh tells her that Roe v. Wade is settled law then it means he wouldn’t vote to dismantle or repeal it. Isn’t this the same Senator Collins who believed Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan’s ironclad promises regarding legislation for lower health care premiums

  • Stonewalling works both ways

    Dear Editor: Stephen Fay, whose expertise in oenology and topics culinary is legendary, seems to have forgotten that ditty “What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.” He laments the liberal stonewalling of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh (the gander) but fails to mention Sen. McConnell’s refusal to even consider Obama nominee Merrick

  • Pulling for Pebworth in November

    Dear Editor: After meeting and talking with Sarah Pebworth, we are totally convinced that Sarah will make a great state representative for the Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Sedgwick and Surry area. Sarah is running as a Clean Election candidate, which makes her more responsive to all the citizens of Maine rather than only those

  • Join the adventure with SAFA

    Dear Editor: On Sunday, Aug. 12, under the tent at the SAFA Schoolhouse on Harbor Road in Winter Harbor, over 100 people gathered to mark the 20th anniversary of Schoodic Arts for All. The outpouring of specialty donated foods from local eateries and the musical offerings of local musicians all contributed to the festivities. Bringing

  • Impressive credentials

    Dear Editor: I’ve only known Kylie Bragdon only a few years, but I’m very impressed in her achievements and her aspirations. She’s only 28 years old and she has her Ph.D. in mathematics, is a selectman in the town of Winter Harbor and is a lobsterwoman on her dad’s lobster boat. Some folks say I’m

  • Golden will fight for Maine and America

    Dear Editor: We need a representative in Washington who will fight for the interests of the Second District. Unfortunately, Congressman Bruce Poliquin has demonstrated time and again his unwillingness to even face the voters of the Second District (at one time even ducking into a bathroom to avoid them). Jared Golden offers a better alternative.

  • Bunker deserves your support

    Dear Editor: I have known Franklin resident Doug Bunker, House seat candidate for District 137, for 11 years. In those years we have interacted often, both socially and at meetings of mutual interest. In my 77 years I have written hundreds of letters of recommendation for students seeking a degree in education. For those I
