LETTERS: People need respectful representation

To the editor:

This letter is in response to Senator Scott Cyrway’s false and misleading press release announcing his candidacy for the Maine House of Representatives. Cyrway falsely claims that removal of the Shawmut dam on the Kennebec River, “…would result in the closure of the Sappi mill, resulting in the loss of tens of millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs.” It is unfortunate that Mr. Cyrway apparently feels that he has to lie to the people of Maine in order to be re-elected. In my own experience with him at the State House, he called me aside and tried to coerce me from exercising my First Amendment right to free speech. The people of Maine need and deserve representatives in the legislature who respect the U.S. Constitution and the truth. In my opinion, Mr. Cyrway seems to respect neither.
