Dear Unorganized Territory Landowner:
On behalf of the Hancock County Commissioners, I am writing this letter as a courtesy to landowners in the Hancock County Unorganized Territories that have structures on their properties. I have used the Maine Revenue Services 2013 Valuation Book as a reference to determine which properties had structures and the owners and their addresses. If you have received this letter in error please disregard.
ELLSWORTH — There’s going to be a new sheriff in town for the first time in 34 years. In a close vote, Republican Scott Kane took Tuesday’s primary race with 2,232 votes, 166 votes more than opponent Alan Brown, who had 2,066.
The winner of the primary contest is virtually certain to succeed Sheriff Bill Clark, as there were no Democratic candidates.
ELLSWORTH — Attorney Matt Foster on Tuesday won the Republican nomination for the office of district attorney for District 7, which includes Hancock and Washington counties. The next district attorney will succeed Carletta “Dee” Bassano, who is not seeking reelection.
Foster took 2,720 votes in Hancock County in June 10 primary. His opponent, First Assistant District Attorney Paul Cavanaugh, received 1,210.
Come November, Foster will face off against the winner of the Democratic primary, Assistant District Attorney Bill Entwisle. Entwisle received 1,887 votes while his opponent, Steven Juskewitch, garnered 1,197.
