Bree LaCasse’s words, in her April 29 Maine Voices column (“On many issues, council should start listening to the people of Portland“), really resonated with me.

My husband and I have consistently felt that the Portland City Council is out of touch with the needs of the people it was elected to serve.

Not all of the councilors have demonstrated this disconnection, but enough have to make a difference, and to leave many of us feeling ignored and angry.

We need more councilors like Ms. LaCasse: passionate Portlanders with a vision for thoughtful maintenance and growth of our beautiful city. We know she has Portland’s and our best interests at heart. Thank you, Bree!
