The letters to the editor are a good way to guage community support. I am humbled.   Thank you to all of you who have written letters, and here is a listing of the next five letters published between May 29 and June 10.

It's pretty amazing to see how in just 150 words people are able to sum things up so cogently.


Fuller's experience unsurpassed
May 31, 2016
by Margaret Craven

I write in support of Roger Jason Fuller for District 58. (sic)

Fuller grew up in New Hampshire, was educated in Maine, taught at Lewiston High School and Oak Hill High School. He spent a total of 28 years as an English teacher, department chair and speech and debate coach. He coordinated the gifted and talented program, and worked on several state-wide education committees.

He received the Milken Educator Award in 1993 and was recruited to Milken Community High School in Los Angeles in 1999, spending 15 years there.

He has a long list of accomplishments, and his good nature, humble demeanor, common sense and experience are unsurpassed.

I hope others will join me in voting for Roger Fuller on June 14. We deserve the best.

Margaret Craven, Lewiston


Quality representation for District 59
by Richard Grandmaison
June 1, 2016

I met Roger Fuller earlier this year at a meeting where he announced that he was running for House District 59. He impressed me with his ability for listening to various views and making the individual comfortable speaking to him.

He was an educator for 42 years and now felt that he needed to give back to the community. He currently tutors at the library to help immigrant children speak and understand English.

He believes in a good education for all children for a brighter future, not only for them, but also the adults looking to improve their employment opportunities. He also supports equal opportunity for all and protecting the environment. He supports establishing passenger rail service to Lewiston.

He is committed and dedicated to providing quality representation for all the citizens in District 59 and Lewiston.

I encourage others to join me in support of Roger Fuller on June 14.

Richard Grandmaison, Lewiston


An excellent representative
by Charles Manchester
Juine 3, 2016

I have known Roger Fuller for 30 years. He was one of my children's teachers at Oak Hill High School, where he was a true professional leader.

I was a member of the union school committee when he was employed as an English teacher. Later, as a member of the district administrative team, I had the opportunity to observe his leadership skills.

He was very successful integrating the community in activities after school, directing plays, coaching the speech and debate team and introducing and integrating technology in the school.

He was awarded the prestigious Milken Educator Award for his work.

Fuller believes in excellence. He is a successful business person, owning a web-based communication company and some rental properties in Lewiston. He will work for equal employment opportunities for all and create opportunities for excellent educators in the state.

Roger Fuller will be an excellent representative for District 59.

Charles Manchester, Litchfield


Fuller believes in the four Es
by Crystal Ward
June 4, 2016

I am writing in support of Roger Fuller for Maine House of Representatives District 59 (Lewiston) in the June 14 Democratic primary.

I have known Fuller for more than 25 years. He is caring, enthusiastic, hardworking and knowledgeable. He and his wife, Gina, are both retired teachers, and his two children are in education. He worked at Lewiston and Oak Hill high schools for 28 years.

His platform includes his "4 Es" plan: Employment, education, environment and equity for all. For example, he believes that senior citizens should be able to live with dignity.

He believes in Lewiston and serving his community. People in District 59 will see him walking throughout the district, knocking on every door.

As a constituent in District 59, I would be glad to have Roger Fuller represent me in Augusta.

Fuller has my vote
by Diane Poirier

June 7, 2016

On June 14, residents of House District 59 have the opportunity to vote for Roger Fuller, to represent Lewiston in Augusta.

Fuller is an educator with a career in teaching and administration. He has been a Lewiston homeowner since the early 1970s, and his love for Lewiston kept him coming back, even when his work took him away.

He is a landlord and small business owner, owning two businesses.

Residents would be lucky to have someone with his knowledge of education and the balance of being a homeowner and taxpayer to represent them in Augusta.

Roger Fuller has my vote.

Diane Poirier, Lewiston

Again, thanks to everyone who has made this happen.
