A well-rounded education

Nashua North High School this past February hosted Governor Sununu and Kati Preston, Kati a Holocaust Survivor gave a powerful presentation on the importance of not forgetting the horrific atrocities of the Holocaust. “Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their ...

Presidents should be role models

In every election I’ve voted in, be it local, a primary, presidential or non-presidential I always see voters taking their children with them as they vote. They clearly want their children to know participating in the democratic process is important. Just as my parents did, I am sure many ...

In their own words…

“With malice toward none, with charity for all.” Abraham Lincoln. “This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today... Let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have ...

A solution for climate change

It is no secret that President Trump refuses to believe the science behind climate change and the drastic effects it will cause if not properly treated. Not only has the President directly denied the scientists behind climate change but he had also put forth policies that reduce protections ...

Support Rosemarie Rung

I am writing to support Rosemarie Rung for a second term as Merrimack State Representative. Rosemarie has been a great Representative for Merrimack; championing clean water, toll removal and more state aid for our town. When Rosemarie speaks at Town Council meetings, it is apparent that she ...

Another day, another tax

It’s highly likely your New Hampshire State Rep is voting against your wishes. For example: Virtually every Democrat State Rep in the NH House voted in favor of HB1 which would take much more of your money to support the bill’s proposed 13% increase in state spending; a massive $1.5 Billion ...

Vote for Rosemary Russell

After a complete lack of representation in Concord during the past 2 years the hard working taxpayers, Seniors and Veterans of Ward 1 have an opportunity to send a solid advocate who will serve as their voice to The NH Legislature on Nov. 3rd. Rosemary Russell, a single mom who holds a ...

Kuster for Congress

The Granite State’s Second District has had the distinct fortune of having Congresswoman Annie Kuster as our four-term House representative in Washington D.C. , with a history of bipartisan legislation that rivals any of America’s representatives during that period. This ranges from ...

Vote for Dan Feltes

Donald Trump has refused to guarantee a peaceful transition of power, even if he loses the election, effectively setting a three alarm fire to the democratic process. Republican governors of neighboring states have managed the moment with muscular, nonpartisan rebukes of Trump’s threat. ...

Chandley and independent redistricting

This year’s elections are especially critical because whichever party takes the majority will be responsible for redistricting, or redrawing our legislative districts for the next 10 years. In 2010, Republicans used redistricting to bake in an advantage for their party, shifting the balance ...

Republican dirty tricks

Republicans at the national level are well known for their dirty tricks over the years. At the local level, NH Republicans are also following suit. As an undeclared voter, I receive a lot of mail from both sides. The Republicans seem to take liberties with the truth. Jeb Bradley tells me ...

Vote for Shannon Chandley

I have known Shannon for over 20 years, as our kids have gone to the same Amherst schools. I have not only been thrilled with her actions in the community as a State Representative and a State Senator for Amherst, Merrimack, Milford and Wilton, but also with her actions as a person - Shannon ...

What Sununu has done for N.H.

In the New Hampshire primaries, more than 4,000 Democrats voted for Chris Sununu as a write-in. But Sununu is NOT the moderate they think he is. “I’m a Trump guy through and through,” Sununu boasts. He takes money and advice from the fossil fuel industry. His 77 vetoes diminish your ...

Justice for Breonna Taylor

On the early morning of March 13th, 2020, Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were in her apartment. Unknown to them around 12:40am, three police officers would issue a no knock warrant at this residence for possible selling of drugs. The warrant failed to mention the targets of ...

Vote for Democrats

I will be voting for the Democrats on Election Day because they believe that: COVID-19 should be defeated with science and empathy. Global climate change is our greatest existential threat and they will tackle it in a fiscally responsible way and create abundance of green job ...

‘Willful blindness’

I am continually amazed at how consistently many Republican members of our Federal, state and local governments refuse to deal with the realities of the damage that Donald Trump has caused for the United States. At his inauguration he swore to protect and serve the Constitution. If you have ...

I was wrong!

In July 2018, I wrote a letter to the editor which stated, “What is almost 100 percent certain…is that Trump’s businesses are kept afloat by laundering money for the Russian mafia, oligarchs and other crooks. This has been going on for years.”I added, “The Russians are able to control ...

Elect Corky Messner

As we face this pandemic and the economic challenges that follow, we need someone like Corky Messner in the US Senate, someone who understands what must be done to get our nation back on track. He has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, and will support the policies needed to restore the ...

Selective information

For more than 10 years, I have argued and testified for legislation less costly for a citizen to go to court. In civil cases, you can’t get legal assistance help unless a lawyer which Mr. Feltes admits he is giving free service. In the past four years, Senator Giuda and others have ...

Best government money can buy

I’m crazy – an Eisenhower Republican. Ike balanced the budget, built the interstates, created NASA, supported civil rights, and kept the top tax rate at 91%. That’s the opposite of Trumpism. Without a party to join, I’m “Undeclared,” as are more than 40% of voters in NH. The U.S. ...
