John - great questions!

Mike - great interview! Nice quote lol, that's a good song by Elvis, and it describes how you work hard rather than just talk about things, you accomplish them. :)

Being a supporter of James T I have now met Michael Foley on 2 separate occasions and have figured out he is a good guy doing what he feels is right for our community. I have seen him and James T speak with each other and think with James representing ward 4 and Mr. Foley at large our city will be in good hands. It has been a pleasure to have met this man and will gladly give my vote for both tomorrow.

Thanks Andy and for all the support for tomorrow.

Mike Foley is a good guy, councilor and is passionate for positive results for Westbrook.

A great example for a lot of young people. I be voting for him tomorrow as well.

James T. is the kind of representation ward 4 needs. He is a hard working, honest, solid businessman that is not afraid to express his views. This is what makes him stand out among the politicians. He recognized the importance to have business in our district. The city needs a small business owner on the council. It is not easy to be a small business owner! People count on you as a small business owner to make good decisions. People rely on you for the comfort they will have a job tommoro. When you are a small business owner you are accountable. When you run a small business, employee a considerable amount of people and add to the tax base. You are on the front line of the building of tommoro. Vote for James for ward 4. The beginning of a new tommoro.
