Clarification

An article in last week’s Sentry, titled, “City signals ban on most short-term rentals,” quoted South Portland resident John Murphy saying City Councilor Claude Morgan, who represents his district, had never returned his emails on the topic. Murphy did not email Morgan. Morgan did not return Murphy’s phone calls, he says.

Also, while the Willard Beach area was still not as desirable when Murphy bought his home in 1985 as it is today, due to a myriad of environmental issues that included combined sewer overflows, the era Murphy referred to when raw sewage was still being dumped directly into the Simonton Cove was the 1960s.
