State Senator Phil Bartlett (D-Cumberland County), who represents a portion of Westbrook, co-authored an op-ed in today's Press Herald that picks apart the media's coverage of the controversial taxes that will be levied on soda, beer, and wine.
And on the opposite side of this debate, Maine Taxpayers United is sponsoring a training session for those interested in gathering signatures for a Peoples' Veto aiming to repeal the taxes. It is scheduled for Saturday, May 17 at 8a, and will take place at the American Legion Hall on Dunn Street. For more information on the training session, click here.

P.S. The City's website features an excellent resource that clarifies who represents whom in Augusta. To wit: 'SS 6' refers to State Senator Bartlett, 'SS 9' refers to State Senator Joseph Brannigan (D-Cumberland County), 'SR 125' refers to State Representative Ann Peoples (D-Westbrook), and 'SR 126' refers to State Representative Tim Driscoll (D-Westbrook).
