  1. Dear Representative Gillway I am asking you in no uncertain terms to vote YES on the appeal of Rep.Tuell’s “NO COMMON CORE MAINE” bill on Nov.19th.
    This is another sick attempt by the corrupt Federal Government to impose it’s sick will on Mainers. Do it.


  2. Good morning, Do you have any results posted or available on yesterdays vote against the “Common Core” bill? Maybe you can explain how I can access the the Legislatures vote results. Did Mr. Gillway vote against the bill? Hope he did.
    Thank you,and Happy Thanksgiving. Joe Parise


    • Rep. Tuell’s bill, LR: 2352 “An Act To Facilitate Homegrown Education in Maine” passed through the Legislative Council and will be considered by the Maine Legislature during the upcoming session.


  3. Mr. Gillway, We do not need additional law enforcement agents to fight illegal drugs here in Maine. Our great Maine police force can more than handle this problem. Save the money. We need more solid Conservative judges on the bench. They will jail these people and keep them there. The implementation of Liberalism into American courts,and our culture,is destroying us.
    Thank you Sir.
