  3. Only Steps Forward Auburn residents step up to celebrate communityRead the original story

    Thursday Aug 20 | Twin City Times

    During the course of a week, I field dozens of phone calls and emails and was stopped in the grocery store or around town with residents' ideas for how to grow our city, improve its quality of life or lower taxes. Knowing the collective insights of a mayor and seven councilors pales in comparison to what the whole community can offer.

  6. Enough is Enough Lewiston will pay for decisions made in AugustaRead the original story

    Friday Aug 14 | Twin City Times

    With the passage of LD 369, Lewiston is going to have to come up with God knows how many thousands of dollars in order to pay for the federal government's refusal to do their job and remove our uninvited guests, known as asylum seekers, from our city, from our state and from our country. This situation is the result of the Legislature's approval of a bill to give taxpayer-funded benefits to asylum seekers and Governor LePage's opinion that the Legislature had adjourned, so he believed he had more time to veto the bill-an opinion that was unanimously shot down by the Supreme Judicial Court.

  7. Only Steps Forward Auburn must speak strongly about its riverfrontRead the original story

    Friday Aug 14 | Twin City Times

    If I told you there was a process underway, which will be wrapped up in the next two years, to determine what can happen for the next 30 years on the Little Androscoggin River in Downtown Auburn, how would you respond? Would you wonder who was making the decisions? Do you know where your elected officials and city staff stand on how your kids or grandkids should be able to use this resource for recreation or economic development? Auburn and our sister city Lewiston tout the importance of the riverfront for growing our community and improving quality of life, but you've probably heard more about the debate to replace the canopies at Festival Plaza than this narrow window we have to advocate for use of the river.

    Jun 29, 2015 | Twin City Times
