    Letter to the editor: Democrats don’t appear better than Trump

    Listening to the Democratic debate of Oct. 15, hearing the discourse, the disagreements and the interruptions the entire broadcast ,one thought came to mind: There was not one person on that stage who wasn’t more polite, respectful and qualified than the person who holds the office for now. Christopher F. Bove Westbrook

    Letter to the editor: Syria pullout defies military-industrial complex

    Unsurprisingly, President Trump’s critics breathlessly lambasted his decision to withdraw a minuscule contingent of American troops and military observers from Syria. One loyal congressional Trump ally called this move “sickening.” Based on mainstream media accounts, one would think a massive troop withdrawal is underway; this is astonishingly inaccurate news. The commander in chief is redeploying […]

    Letter to the editor: Collins should defend Constitution, impeach Trump

    I’m a veteran from Brunswick, and I personally believe the commander in chief should live up to our highest standards and values. For that reason, and for the security of our country and the sanctity of our elections, I believe Donald Trump must be impeached. I served overseas, and I know firsthand the risks and […]

    Letter to the editor: To save Maine’s birds, we must reduce emissions

    It is almost unthinkable that many Maine birds could be gone by 2100 because of the climate crisis, according to a recent study by the National Audubon Society (“Maine’s birds imperiled by a changing climate,” Oct. 11, Page A1). To limit the devastation, Audubon calls for 100 percent conversion to renewable energy, which will reduce […]

    Letter to the editor: Kany’s review of Portland show gave visitors ‘tools’ for viewing it

    Dan Kany wrote a review of the exhibition “Darkness and the Light” at the Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art this summer. Of course, any artist who exhibits publicly is pleased to be reviewed, especially by a premier critic in a premier publication. And so, I was delighted to see Dan’s review […]

    Letter to the editor: Don’t expect feds to help us if Maine won’t help them

    I think that since Maine’s government has decided not to respond to the federal government for the information gathered from driver’s licenses, which will help keep our country safe, I will not be voting for the infrastructure bond issue that will receive matching funds in the amount of $137 million. Why should our government work […]

    Letter to the editor: Snyder will foster cooperation, respect in Portland City Hall

    I had the pleasure to host Kate Snyder all day recently on Peaks Island, where she met and listened to my island neighbors. I witnessed her approaching all of her conversations with a desire to understand and with respect for each individual. These qualities are why I support Kate as mayor. She’s not about a […]

    Letter to the editor: Vote for Portland candidates who put taxpayers first

    City councilors and city staff who are not property owners in Portland seem less motivated to be conservative regarding property-tax increases than those representatives and municipal employees who pay property taxes. This group includes Mayor Ethan Strimling and many of the upper-level administrators who make fiscal decisions for the city. My property taxes have doubled […]
