" my fellow mainers"

Well fellow Mainers, it will soon be time to elect a new governor to lead our overtaxed and underpaid masses. The way people are flocking out of the state, it shouldn't take more than a couple hundred votes to get that job, and I for one don't want it(even with the insurance and retirement plan)!
We should, however, look back in awe at the stunning performance of Baldy the fry cook, and perhaps we will learn something.
Despite Baldacci's continued promise not to raise broad-based taxes, most Mainers will see another property tax increase this year directly because of his policies. Almost 315,000 Maine families that would have gotten a break on their property taxes through the 'homestead exemption' can kiss that goodbye. And how's Dirigo Health doing( Baldacci still says we can still fix it if we raise more taxes)? Oh, and let's not forget the school district consolidation plan? The sad thing is that I don't even have to elaborate on these fiscal fiascos(although I'm rarely at a loss for words), EVERYBODY knows.
Enough about the past, my blood pressure is higher than the deficit. What I want to know is what's next? I would appreciate it if everyone would email the address below and tell me 1, 5, or 50 things that are most important to the people and the state of Maine RIGHT NOW. The results of this very unscientific and therefore probably very accurate poll( after one week) will be sent to the editor of this publication. Also, please tell me WHO you think can fix our beautiful state. Thank You,


Tim Smith, Stow,ME
