I wasnt criticizing Daponte for being a politician. i was criticizing him for having made a career out of it. He's been up at the statehouse for 14 years and presided over our decline, especially these last couple of years as senate finance chair. Our fiscal numbers are generally the worst in the country. Fact. My other point is you are known by the company you keep and going door to door is an endorsement of your walking partner. I'll be going door to door with Steve Santos for city council and I'm endorsing him by doing so.

If you read my flyer the first bill i would support is term limits. This obviously prevents people from making a lifelong career out of state politics. I think 3 two year terms is quite enough personally. Politics should be about solutions not a popularity contest.

Jimmy Maynard lives in Rumford and thinks he is the only one who can voice his opinion and also thinks he is the smartest guy in town. If you disagree with him you need to "keep silent and to yourself".

Tom I am certainly not the smartest guy in town at all. An no I don't mind people expressing there opinion. In fact I think it's great. Debate is always fun. It is when you can't just debate a topic and have to make it personal that takes the fun away. I guess I wouldn't take it so bad if the people doing it had the courage to put thier actual name along with the comment.
