Letters

She should step down

It seems that one of this city’s best-kept secrets is the Nashua Republican City Committee, which I have been chairman of for the past year. People urged me to run for the position because of my lengthy business background and reputation for being a consensus builder. Like any other political ...

Trump likely to win

Having watched most of the Democrat debate last night and seen the dust-up between (Elizabeth) Warren and (Bernie) Sanders, I think that Donald Trump is in a likely position to win in November. One of the persistent’s advertisers in our state is Tom Steyer, and his claims for wanting clean ...

‘Bernie the Commie’

Bernie Sanders backer Jean Lewandowski’s hysterical, laughable Jan. 12 response to my Dec. 29 letter was completely lacking in substance, yet ironically enough, Lewandowski’s insufferable screed was simultaneously filled to the brim with inane invective against me personally. As a ...

Carbon fee and dividend is the answer

Worldwide, we have been seeing a climate-fueled crisis from the wildfires in Australia, extreme flooding in Indonesia and tornadoes in the Midwestern states. In order to combat this ongoing crisis, we need to employ the carbon fee and dividend plan. This is a bipartisan based plan where a fee ...

When other people’s money runs out

Supporters of (Bernie) Sanders, (Elizabeth) Warren and others who campaign on free health care, free college, guaranteed income and other nonsense should look at the situation in France. Years of promises of less work, guaranteed pension with early retirement and other perks enacted by prior ...

Bernie Sanders understands

Bernie Sanders believes health care is a human right, not a privilege. This is a corollary of The Declaration of Independence, since the human rights proclaimed therein (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) can’t be fully realized without a guarantee of health care. Why is Medicare ...

Warren not satisfied with crumbs

If the United States is such a great and wealthy country, why are so many Americans struggling to make ends meet? Why has our country not seen more progress in our social life? For decades, many politicians from both major parties have been telling us to be satisfied with the crumbs that fall ...

Vote for Bill Weld

As a registered independent in New Hampshire, I intend to pick up a Republican primary ballot and vote for Bill Weld for president. I encourage all independents and Republicans to do the same. I don’t agree with many of his policy positions, but he is at least intelligent, moderate, ...

Be a part of the solution

I offer no apology for what I am writing. If you disagree, or find my position offensive, I’m perfectly fine with that. We can agree to disagree. I have lived through numerous presidents in my lifetime. I have never seen a president scrutinized 24/7 over every word he speaks, facial ...

Search out the truth

Jake Pickering got one thing right in his letter of Dec. 29 (“Bernie is a sure loser”): he repeatedly urged readers to check out the source material. I have yet to decide who to vote for in the primary, and since Pickering kindly referred to specific written and video documents, I did ...

Thank you, Nashua

All good things must come to end, so they say. So my term on the (Nashua School District) Board of Education has ended. As the last public meeting was closed down before member comments could be made, I am writing this letter to say my goodbyes. I want to thank the voters of the city who ...

Supporting an important resource

I want to thank Gov. Chris Sununu and Executive Councilors Ted Gatsas, Russell Prescott and Michael Cryans for their recent vote to continue Bethany Christian Services’ contract with the state of New Hampshire. Bethany Christian Services provides support for foster children in New ...

Concerns about our N.H. State House

The following is a statement from New Hampshire State House Representative Deborah Stevens from Nashua in June 2019: (sic) “I have visited gun sites where there is open discussion about shooting ppl. And about total anarchy, too. Total unbridled violence ... so pathetic to have those values, ...

Abuse of power

You have just been called into your boss’ office at work. He says that because of your good work it looks like you are in position to get an end-of-year bonus and perhaps a promotion. He will look into getting you that bonus, but first he has a favor to ask. He says that he has heard some bad ...

Attention Independents

Are you an Independent or a disappointed Republican voter but want your 2020 vote “to count?” This election year is different. You may have heard that a vote for a third party candidate is most likely a vote for Donald Trump. Four more years with Trump would be devastating to our ...

Thank you to our community!

The Salvation Army would like to thank everyone in the community who contributed to making this past Christmas possible. The Salvation Army was able to serve 623 families. This includes 1,324 children. Serving 623 families at Christmas would not have been possible without the help of the ...

Disappointment and anger

New Hampshire Magazine just published and sent out a list of their calendar of events. I noticed one event in particular that was called “Elite PBR: Unleash the Beast,” which is being hosted at SNHU Arena in Manchester on Jan. 18-19. When I read what this event was about, I experienced an ...

Getting our country back on track

A while back I had the opportunity to attend and meet Joe Biden at an event in Manchester. I was interested in his viewpoint on many issues, health care in particular. I was impressed with his ideas. We need to move forward and continue to improve health care. Tearing it down without having ...

Narcan kits in schools?

How is having Narcan kits available in some New Hampshire schools going to help our opioid crisis? It only invites permission to use drugs, because the users know they will be saved! Why, oh why, in the world does New Hampshire not make it mandatory to teach in our schools about addiction? ...

What IS the Republican’s plan?

The Telegraph’s Thursday, Dec. 19 editorial railed against “Obamacare” (formal name: the Affordable Care Act, or ACA). In The Telegraph’s eyes, and that of most Republicans, it’s a BAD thing and the courts are right to strike it down as a law. Republican claims are that it’s ...
