Thank you, veterans

Friends of Veterans would like to thank all our donors, sponsors and players who made our annual golf fundraiser at the Baker Hill Golf Club a tremendous success. This fundraiser along with the many grants we receive will allow us the opportunity to make this challenging year the fourth ...

It’s not the Democrats

A C-SPAN caller voiced her fear that Democrats would get rid of Medicare and Social Security. An article about black men who support Trump mentioned concerns that Biden would cut Medicare and Social Security. I’ve heard the same in everyday conversations. That level of ignorance by people ...

Thank you RX distributor’s

While New Hampshire continues its fight against the virus and new cases remain lower than the rest of the country, working on the frontlines remains frightening. Over the last several months, nurses, doctors, and first responders have thrust themselves into emergency rooms, risking our own ...

Dear Merrimack voters

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you once again as a State Representative. I am thankful to have earned your votes, support and confidence as I prepare to serve a fourth term in the N.H. House. I look forward to serving all citizens and collaborating on issues important to Merrimack. My ...

Build our future

It has been my pleasure to know Steve Negron over the years. He was my NH state representative in Nashua’s Ward 5. When I first heard him speak to the Nashua Republicans about an issue happening in the state house I knew he had what it takes to go further. He was well-informed and he ...

A strong commitment

For the past two years, I have served as the Senator from District 13, which covers wards 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 9 in Nashua. Representing you in Concord is an honor, and it is not a responsibility I take lightly. I’m driven by the desire to make our economy work better for working families, ...

Misguided cultural confiscation

There appears to be radicalism in current Nashua city government to revise American political tradition. Most recently the Board of Aldermen resolved that Columbus Day be renamed Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Under the guise of a “welcoming city” many are thereby declared unwelcome. This ...

Sununu ignores citizens’ will

Seventy-nine headstones, each one representing a bill passed by both the NH House and Senate were set up in front of City Hall last Saturday by Greater Nashua Rights and Democracy to highlight the record number of bills vetoed by Governor Sununu. Until his term, the record for 2 years was ...

We need to move beyond ‘ifs’

Climate change is a serious and pressing issue that is and will continue to effect the entire planet with our failure of serious action. There had always been the focus on “if” climate change is real, “if” humans are making a serious impact on overall warming of the earth, and “if” ...

Feltes will fix school funding

There’s only one candidate for governor who has demonstrated a commitment to fund public schools, and that’s Dan Feltes. As a senator, Feltes led the effort to increase the state’s funding of public schools by nearly $150 million. And he made sure to direct the funds to the cities and ...

Socialism vs. anarchy

Trump and many other Republicans argue that a vote for a Democrat will lead to Socialism in the US. As Joe Biden says, “Are you kidding me?” Nothing could be further from the truth. Respected journalists have said that the United States-like every other country with an advanced economy, ...

Taste for a cure for cystic fibrosis

Dear friends, we are delighted to share the great news that Taste for a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis 2020 was a huge success! We organized our first Taste for a Cure 14 years ago and in that time we have raised over $1.2 million to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which has helped support ...

Because they said so?

It did not use to work like this. But here we are with the pandemic emergency as an excuse, state employees gone rogue and asserting authority over private businesses and citizens they do not otherwise possess and/or feel obligated to identify. I have previously known the New Hampshire ...

Re-elect Deb Stevens

Donald Trump likes to tell stories. He actually claimed he brought the price of insulin down to that of water! Any person with diabetes can tell you he just made that up - the retail price of this life saving drug is roughly $300 per vial! This high cost can lead to rationing or going without ...

Change the country’s leadership

In the four years since I wrote to you last, I have felt my world turned upside down. My family’s safety has been upended by Covid, and while the virus itself is nobody’s fault, on a national level there has been little leadership in mitigating its effect. While I personally felt this way, ...

Republicans HATE taxes! REALLY?

The constant mantra from NHGOP is that EVERY increase in a fee or government service is labeled a tax. So, a 50 cent-a-year increase for a dog license gets labeled a tax. In fact, any proposal by the Democrats to create fair ways to support government services is a tax according to our friends ...

Granny D’s wisdom

Just had a journey down memory-lane, reading a new book’s draft - Doris “Granny D” Haddock’s speeches given as she walked 3000+ miles from CA to D.C. speaking for campaign finance reform when she was 89 and 90 (1999-2000). My draft is by way of group-sharing the editing task. I had ...

Chandley: Small business advocate

As an Amherst resident who owns a small business in Nashua, I feel compelled to respond to the dishonest partisan attacks on State Senator Shannon Chandley's record regarding small businesses. Senator Chandley has been a fierce advocate for the small business community and to say anything less ...

A grave threat

After more than four years with Trump and his constant lying, it is obvious to me that he constitutes a grave threat to our freedom and way of life. However, I must admit that there is much that I do not understand. • Since Trump is running as a “Law and Order” President, why is it ...

Vote for Rosenwald

I am proud to be supporting Cindy Rosenwald in her re-election to the State Senate. As a young woman, I have seen Senator Rosenwald fight for the issues I care about most. One issue that means a lot to me is reproductive rights, and Senator Rosenwald has been a champion in that area. I was so ...
