Camden Herald letters to the editor Nov. 12

Nov 12, 2020

To the Editor

I write this letter to congratulate Senator David Miramant on his reelection on Tuesday.

It has been my sincere honor to run for the office of Maine State Senate District 12. The support I received from voters throughout Knox County is humbling, and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to have learned so much about our wonderful Midcoast communities in Knox County.

I want to thank my wife Janet, my children, and my grandson Luke for their patience and love. I also want to thank my treasurer, Dennis Norton, and deputy treasurer, Linda Post, and everyone who stepped forward to offer their expertise and experience.

As we move forward from this point in time, please join me in wishing Senator Miramant nothing but success in his service to the residents and taxpayers of Senate District 12.

Revive Civility!

Thanks from Valli

To the Community of Rockland and Owls Head:

How do I ever thank a community for placing their trust in me? For all the people who voted for me, I thank you. For all the people that vouched for me, told their neighbors and friends about me, I thank you. For all those who publicly amplified my message, my stances and contrasted them with my opponent, I thank you. I have long loved this community and have felt blessed by it since the day, in 1994, that Greg, Dash and I moved here.

For all those that did not vote for me, know that I will represent you as well, to the best of my ability. Thank you all for being part of warp and weave of this beautiful tapestry called Rockland and Owls Head. I will work hard to help our community rise again, after the devastation that Covid is unleashing, rise again stronger, better, more sustainably and more equitably.

It has been an honor to serve the community of Rockland as a City councilor for the last 6 years and It will be an honor to serve you all in the legislature.

Sincerely,

Valli Geiger

 

Congratulations, Senator

As someone who worked hard at the grassroots level to help get Susan Collins re-elected, I want to congratulate her and thank the many Mainers who never flagged in their efforts to help keep “Our Senator” working for us in Congress.

It may be a tad melodramatic, but this achievement could be described as a triumph of good over evil.  Collins, a native Mainer, has worked tirelessly in the Senate, holding the current record for over 7,000 consecutive votes, authored the PPP legislation to battle COVID impact, been honored seven times with the Lugar Award as the most bi-partisan Senator, and done it all with grace and honor.

However, in the campaign, she was attacked mercilessly and hypocritically by Sarah Gideon’s out-of-state, dark-money ads at a gargantuan financial cost – described by the “Wall Street Journal” as the third most expensive senate campaign in the country.

To Maine’s credit, we showed the country that our state was not for sale at any price. Legions of Democrats and Republicans voted for her on a bi-partisan level which, appropriately, mirrors her approach to service as a U.S. Senator.

Congratulations and good luck, Senator Collins, in a well-deserved fifth term.
