Re-elect Rowe

I would appreciate your vote for me as a Hillsborough County Commissioner. As one of three commissioners, I am responsible for the management of the five county departments: Nursing Home, Registry of Deeds, County Jail and County Attorney. I am familiar with the job, as I have served as a ...

The whole story

I am at odds with Superintendent Mosley, because he and Dottie Oden, school board president, filed false statements with the New Hampshire Department of Education. Those false statements resulted in the freezing of $13 million of federal funding to the school district. I find it sad that The ...

The big picture

I am taking this opportunity to publicly thank Sen. Kevin Avard for his initial support of SB 365 and SB 446 (the two renewable energy bills) and his support of the veto overrides. (The veto of SB 365 was successfully overturned, not so with SB 446). I am a lifelong resident of the area ...

Transparent procedures

Folks who have seen their assessments increase by 50 to 100 percent have been upset with the KRT appraisal process. However, residents should shift their attention to the Assessors Office. Increases of this order reflect an office that does not appear to be managing property cards correctly. ...

Absurd accusations

Over the last week or so, I received some pretty nasty and untruthful mail attacking Shannon Chandley and her record. You may have gotten some of these pieces, too. They attempt to paint my representative, Shannon Chandley, as an unbounded taxer, a fringe-leftist radical and someone who is ...

Vote for Rosenwald

Cindy Rosenwald is running for the New Hampshire Senate seat for District 13, which includes Nashua Wards 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9. Cindy has proven to be a leader who is very active with her constituents and values their input. She has been a strong voice for Nashua by advocating for the state to ...

Let’s right the wrongs

Elections do have consequences. In New Hampshire, we are still paying the price for the 2010 election when voters swung to the right. Moderate, compassionate legislators were tossed out of office due to anger over the Affordable Care Act, which, by the way, 56 percent of Americans now approve ...

Vote for Kuster

As we all know in New Hampshire, politics is local. Your votes made on a local and state level are critical to the services and priorities of our communities. And they’re the true test of one’s character when seeking higher office. Last week at the New Hampshire Association of Fire Chiefs ...

Let’s help those impacted by Michael

Florida’s panhandle has been hit by what Gov. Rick Scott describes as “an absolute monster” of a hurricane. The full extent of the devastation and loss of life remains to be determined. Our state needs to provide whatever help is within our power. Because Florida is a haven for ...

Praise for Sununu

You’ve no doubt heard a lot of criticism surrounding Gov. Chris Sununu’s opposition to a paid family and medical leave bill that was proposed earlier this year. It’s the subject of Molly Kelly’s latest attack TV advertisement. But what you’re not hearing is that no one could certify ...

Thank you, Sen. Avard

I am writing to publicly thank Sen. Kevin Avard for his support during the two veto over-rides regarding Senate Bills 365 and 446, which took place on Sept. 13. I am a longtime resident of Hudson, and am in support of renewable energy. I am a professional forester, performing practice in the ...

Not far enough

I read the letter to the editor headed “Disgusting and Vile Attack” and wonder at those who said they were glued to their TV during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and testimony, yet missed the part where the FBI was instructed by the current resident of the White House not to follow-up with ...

Hogan has made difference

Changes have been hitting law enforcement, including prosecution, hard and fast. Our County Attorney, Dennis Hogan, has already proven he can handle this challenge. As a new lawyer and elected member of the Nashua Board of Education, he helped to repair its organizational structure. Under ...

Vote for Nash

I am supporting Lisa Nash for the New Hampshire House from Amherst and Bedford. She supports: 1. Quality public education that meets the needs of New Hampshire students. 2. Expanding access to mental health resources and addiction care. 3. Attracting and retaining youth in New ...

Chandley right for job

As a health care professional and educator employed in Milford, I have come to know Shannon Chandley, who is running for state Senate in District 11. As parents supporting our children, we have shared experiences with local theater, dance, school academic programs and sporting events. She is ...

Two different faces

Gov. Chris Sununu is a “Yes” man; but he’s also a “No” man. Yes, to nuclear power and more pipelines. No, to an exciting new industry for New Hampshire – offshore wind development with jobs and economic stimulation. Yes, to treating opioid addicts as criminals and second-class ...

Prevent atrocities

Recently, I heard a terrible story on NPR about a Guatemalan family who applied for asylum in the United States. They were Sandy and her four sons. Sandy and her family were brutally treated in Guatemala, so her case for asylum was a legitimate one. She was detained and separated from her sons, ...

Vote Rosenwald

Cindy Rosenwald has my vote for New Hampshire State Senate District 13. Do Cindy and I agree on all the issues? No, but Cindy respects and listens to my views with a goal to understand, not to be understood – a foundation to Cindy’s character, integrity and exemplary constituent ...

Thank you

The Merrimack Crimeline members would like to thank the sponsors of the golf tournament on Sept. 12. The Merrimack Crimeline thanks all of its sponsors, as without their support, this tournament would not be as successful as it is. Corporate Sponsors: C&W Services, Franklin Savings ...

Bad decisions

Judge Brett Kavanaugh has an extensive judicial history. But I find two of his cases especially telling. Just last fall, Judge Kavanaugh wrote that a young woman in an immigration detention facility should not be given access to an abortion until she had adequate emotional support to make ...
