Disgusting and vile attack

Like many Americans, I was glued to the television watching the Senate Judicial Committee hearing with Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, facing his accuser on allegations of sexual assault. I was deeply saddened at the grotesque witch hunt perpetrated by the Democrats on the ...

An open letter to Pope Francis

Your Holiness, Pope Francis, I write today to humbly offer an idea for action I pray you may consider as you respond to the growing sexual abuse allegations arising in Catholic communities around the world today. Please know that while I do write, in particular, for all those still silent ...

Vote for change

Hello, my name is Mark Linn, and I am running with he Libertarian Party, for New Hampshire state representative for Hillsborough County District 40, which includes the towns of Hollis, Milford, Mont Vernon and New Boston. Are you tired of the way both the Democrats and Republicans are running ...

Where’s Bart?

The most basic expectation I have for my elected officials is a commitment to the job and attendance during legislative sessions. An elected official cannot represent his or her constituents if they don’t show up to vote on proposed bills. If you visited the New Hampshire State House in ...

Hard to believe

In regards to Michael Frandzel letter regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the FBI: Michael seems to be missing a lot of the “facts.” The fact that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford does not remember when or where. I was attacked many years ago. I do not remember the man, but I can remember where ...

Camarota for state rep

Bedford voters: Thank you for coming out Sept. 11 and voting. I won the primary, and you have made it possible for me to go forward in the Nov. 6 general election, and I thank you. The principles you found in me and my platform of limited government, adherence to the Constitutions, family ...

Vote for Rombeau

We write to enthusiastically encourage our neighbors in Bedford to vote for Catherine Rombeau as a state representative for District 7 (Bedford). We were excited to support Catherine in her run for Bedford Town Council, and believe that she is now the best candidate in the upcoming state ...

‘True allegiance’ revisited

Regarding Ron Cicotte’s letter to the editor published Sept. 16, titled “True allegiance:” I agree with much of what you said our about federal employees. Most try to do a good job, try to keep politics out of their decision making and take their oath to the Constitution seriously. But ...

Kavanaugh and the FBI

If the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee had any interest in learning the truth about the Kavanaugh attempted rape case, they would have called in the FBI (via the Executive Branch) all by themselves. Instead, they are quite willing to put a man on the Supreme Court, for life, who ...

Grateful for response

Recently, there were issues regarding the fire alarms sounding at our condos at Exit 1. The response: Caring, prompt attention from the fire department was very professional and reassuring to those who exited and were observing those brave and kind firefighters search the buildings and give an ...

Is this where are we going?

No person chooses to get ill. No ill person wants to be a pre-existing condition. Certainly, no individual/family should go bankrupt from their personal tragedy. However, if the current lawsuit in Texas, brought by 20 Republican states and supported by the Trump Administration succeeds, the ...

The best is yet to come

Thursday’s front-page article on the value of getting seventh graders out on the Nashua River was right on the mark. Too few residents seem to take advantage of the city’s efforts to make the river more accessible to all by upgrading access at the Millyard and Stellos Stadium/Mine Falls Dam ...

The opioid crisis mural

The newest mural in progress in Nashua by the Positive Stree Art group is now referenced in the Sunday Telegraph as “ The Rememberance Mural.” This art group had earlier called the mural “Take Courage” as reported in The Telegraph on July 24. Numerous articles in our local paper quote ...

Vote for Chandley

Since announcing my candidacy for State Representative for Merrimack, I have come to know another candidate, Shannon Chandley, who is running for State Senate. Shannon has a record of bipartisanship in her tenure as a state representative, and she works hard on issues important to her ...

Make the pledge

In 2010, the Affordable Health Care bill was passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama (thus its nickname, “Obamacare”). Since then, tens of millions of lower-income Americans – 130,000 New Hampshire residents – have been able to purchase health insurance through this ...

Seeking support on Nov. 6

I am writing to thank all those residents of Bedford that supported me in the recent primary election. I am campaigning for a New Hampshire House position from Bedford, because I believe the residents of Bedford deserve a choice of representation. The following areas are my priorities as ...

Shaking in their boots

Could The Telegraph pick a more unattractive picture of Brett Kavanaugh on Sept. 11 – placed right next to Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hasan announcing they will not vote for him? I’m shocked. I’m surprised the senators, with all due respect, didn’t insist The Telegraph add a ...

Wake-up call

We’ve heard about the tragic gas explosions in Andover. Right now, Liberty Utilities is proposing a new gas line from Manchester to Stratham, with an associated large liquid natural (fracked) gas storage tank in Epping. This pipeline, which will run along 101, poses explosion risks. And ...

Is this the America we want?

America is a nation of people from diverse backgrounds, working together for peace and prosperity, and welcoming others with the same goals. However, current immigration policy defies that notion. Prospective immigrants are deprived of human rights, to the horrendous extent of separating babies ...

Bigotry

Your recent editorial “Hatred more common” failed to offer an answer to the question it raised: Why do more people today feel free to express their racial hatred? The answer is obvious, I believe, when one considers the continuous racist words and actions of the one person Americans are ...
