Letters to the Editor

Bennet has vision New Hampshire voters will be going to the polls on Tuesday to begin the process of electing their party’s nominee for president. With many qualified candidates seeking our vote, it can be hard to decide. As I listened to each candidate when they came to New Hampshire, I ...

Here’s the problem

Greetings from Minnesota and hello to the extended family I have in Nashua. I am writing this out of concern. You see, I like all the Democratic presidential candidates except one, Bernie Sanders. You see, Minnesota is a state where voters will vote for a third-party candidate if they do ...

Move forward with Biden

For five terms, I represented Manchester’s Ward 3 in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. As a member of the New Hampshire House, I learned the importance of listening to your constituents, staying true to your principles and respecting our democratic institutions. That’s why I am ...

Candidates must address Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease, and that’s why I’m advocating with the Alzheimer’s Association and fighting this public health crisis. I was first introduced to Alzheimer’s Disease as a child when my grandmother was diagnosed, and in 2001, passed away as a result. In 2014, at ...

How to tackle climate change

In my view, we have only a few decades left to reduce greenhouse gas emissions without catastrophic climate destabilization. This can leave us trembling in our boots and reduced to turning our backs on any possible solution. But I say, let’s give it a try, for the sake of future generations, ...

We are in this together

As goes Australia, so goes New Hampshire?  As I sit here in New Hampshire, with almost no snow on the ground in January, all I can think of is what will future generations experience in this world. Australia is on fire now, California is still reeling from ever-expanding fire seasons, our ...

Why Bernie?

There is nothing more important for America and the world than to oust Donald Trump. Any one of our Democratic candidates – all very good men and women – would be miles above Trump, who is the gravest danger to democracy since World War II. While I had the honor of serving as a Bernie ...

A shining light

The news these days is terrible. All over. I remember the Clinton impeachment and how it dominated the news. I compare it to today’s coverage, and the media can’t even begin to cover it with all due justice for fear we will miss something else. Burning kangaroos, a shooting here and there, ...

Bennet is worth a look

With the passing of Jim Lehrer, there were tributes from friends and colleagues for this very good journalist who brought us the news without dramatic audio, flashy graphics or bias. Together with Robert MacNeil, Jim Lehrer founded what is now The PBS News Hour, which provides not just the ...

In our best interest

I, like many, took an oath of office. I’ve never unoathed, and thus feel compelled to comment on what is going on in our government. Five years of my Air Force career were spent in various assignments in Washington, including the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Air Staff and Military ...

Thank you, Rep. Kuster

On Monday, U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster joined 76 bipartisan cosponsors on the most effective and beneficial climate bill to ever get this far in Congress. It will stop climate pollution at the pace required and on a global scale, while growing America’s economy and helping the poor. This bill is ...

A uniquely American solution

A while back, I got a small piece of glass stuck in my foot and went to the doctor’s to have it removed. Several visits later, it was finally out. This small piece of bad luck cost me $800. That was my co-pay – my co-pay. Poll after poll shows that most Americans think our current ...

Politics and climate change

It’s an election year and all the top issues are being debated by the possible democrat incumbents and President Donald Trump. But on issue seems to be missing from the debate stage and polls: climate change. There’s only been one climate town hall back in September of 2019. Where the ...

Gabbard can repair America

On Jan. 14, Tulsi Gabbard hosted a roundtable discussion in Concord with award-winning foreign correspondent, Stephen Kinzer, and former presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich. Kinzer stated: “All those programs that many of the progressive candidates want, realistically speaking, are ...

Use common sense

“Who are you going to vote for in the primary?” I repeatedly ask friends, relatives and members of various groups to which I belong. With few exceptions, they respond that they do not know. Most have a favorite whom they feel would reflect their values and be good for the country, BUT they ...

Be a part of the solution

In a recent letter to the editor, State Rep. Fred Douchette, a Republican, scolded those who have vehemently criticized our current President Donald J. Trump. He instructed them to show respect for the Office of the President. I think Mr. Doucette has overlooked the fact that President ...

Trust Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders advocates for policies that get to the root issues that matter to us-- low wages, economic inequality, infrastructure decay, environmental destruction, climate change, and inadequate healthcare. “Not me, us” is our call to action. Bernie’s honesty and consistency make him ...

Thank you

This letter is being written in gratitude of all the folks in my town, state and all the people who have worked steadfast supporting Community Rights for Local Self Government. The Community Rights Movement is all about strengthening the rights of self determination for a sustainable future ...

Vote for Joe Biden

The primary is almost here, and I know who I am voting for. I am “Riding with Biden,” because he is a good man who has a solid record and reputation for helping people. President Barack Obama chose Joe as his vice president because he knew Joe understands and cares about those of us who ...
