Cynthia Dill

Quote of the Day: Ouch

"So, there is no woman political columnist to speak of in Maine. That’s not my opinion, that’s a fact."

-Sen. Cynthia Dill, on her blog.


"Ouch, I'm hurt."

-BDN columnist Pat LaMarche, in the first comment.

Bliss Resigns, Prompting Special Election

At Down East today, I take a quick look at the resignation of Democratic State Senator Larry Bliss of South Portland and the special election that will take place after he leaves the Legislature on April 15th.

Bliss, who lost his job at the University of Southern Maine 16 months ago, is leaving for a position in California. He won a very close race in 2010 against local radio personality and small business owner Joe Palmieri.

Cynthia Dill, a Representative from Cape Elizabeth perhaps best known for blogging about herself in the third person, has already tweeted about her desire to seek the seat.

Chamber of Secrets

Quote of the day, from State Representative Cynthia Dill:

Gringotts Wizarding Bank pales in comparison to the US Chamber, but the resemblance is striking. Secret and separate vaults for Dow Chemical, News Corporation, Prudential Financial, Goldman Sachs and other corporate behemoths are filled with cash and gold coins, and guarded by gremlins resembling a cross between Dobby and Karl Rove.

The Next Cuisinart

Quote of the day:

"Sexting, that cute portmanteau with a bad rap, marketed just right could be the next Cuisinart for today's working woman in a committed relationship short on alone time."
