Not how it’s done

Wednesday, Sept. 16 was the last day of the 2019-2020 New Hampshire House session as we met to consider the Governor’s vetoes at UNH’s Whittemore Center. We have been meeting there instead of the State House in order to maintain social distancing. I was disappointed that we were unable ...

Climate change in New Hampshire

We all know that climate change is a serious issue and will come with dangerous consequences. Caused by a steady rise in greenhouse gas emissions, climate change will have serious effects for New Hampshire. As predicted the overall temperature of the planet is rising each year. Thus causing ...

‘Neglect of duty’

Donald Trump has reminded us frequently that while president he cannot be indicted or prosecuted for any crimes. However on January 20, 2017, he took the Presidential Oath of Office in which he committed to legal obligations as part of his position which is required of him by law. It is not ...

House takes decorum seriously

I would like to thank you once again for allowing the New Hampshire House of Representatives to use the Whittemore Center for the final sessions of the Legislature during the COVID-19 pandemic. Without your hospitality and the hard work of you and the staff at the University of New Hampshire we ...

The president and climate change

Although this election season is upon us and the races for the presidential seat is heating up, Donald Trump is still our current President. I am not going to lie, I do not agree with the President at all on numerous issues from healthcare to the economy. But where he seems to fail the most is ...

Sununu is no moderate; vote Feltes

To those who voted in the Democratic primary but “wrote in” Chris Sununu’s name for governor, please reconsider. He’s not the moderate he’s sometimes thought to be. Sununu has failed to take meaningful action to address the climate crisis or even to acknowledge it as a priority. He ...

Chandley: Working hard for N.H.

As politically active newcomers to town four years ago, we felt Shannon was immediately responsive and approachable as a State Representative. As a resident of Amherst for over 20 years, Shannon truly cares about representing the best interests of our community and willingly invests the time ...

Thank you

I would like to thank the voters last week for showing support and trust in me with their vote in Nashua’s Ward 1 primary for State Representative . There were 1109 Democratic ballots on Tuesday. 921 of them blessed me with their vote, and I wish I could thank you all personally. One thing ...

Drain the Swamp?

Polls show Donald Trump and Joe Biden in a close battle for NH in the upcoming election. Four years ago, Trump’s rallies often had ‘Drain the Swamp!’ chants. How’s that working out? A few recent examples: Over $6M billed to the US Government by consultants to enhance the image and ...

Disappointed in Sununu

Be aware that Chris Sununu’s record is neither moderate, as he claims, nor gender neutral. Some people seem inclined to re-elect Sununu based on his COVID-19 performance. Not me! As a female physician, I am extremely disappointed by his record, and note that it disproportionately burdens ...

A thank you to Nick Caggiano

Nick, tell us it isn’t so! The Nashua Pickleball Club wishes you well. We will be some of the many who are sad to hear of your leaving Nashua Parks & Recreation. You have been our greatest friend and supporter for many years. Thank You. Nashua has turned out to be one of the best ...

Trump has little respect for brains

Scientific American magazine, for the first time in its 175 years, has endorsed a presidential candidate – Joe Biden. Trump is so anti-science that the highly-respected magazine feels compelled. It didn’t even endorse Abraham Lincoln, as Steven Colbert pointed out on The Late Show. Trump, ...

Everyone in Hudson will lose

When the attorney for the Friels, Mr. Leonard, spoke at the September 9th Hudson Planning Board meeting, he suggested that two members of the Hudson Planning Board recuse themselves from the case of the Hudson Logistics Center (HLC) proposal currently seeking Planning Board approval. For ...

The time is now!

Turbulence in our economic, social, and environmental fabric is not new, but the current administration and Covid-19 have magnified the great divides of society in a very public and personal way. We must be able to make binding local governing decisions that protect the health and safety of all ...

Dems need better messaging

President Trump does better than Joe Biden in polls on handling the economy, even though he took a growing economy, seemed to improve it, and then nearly destroyed it. How is that possible? Trump’s deliberate disregard of the dangers of COVID-19, and so many of his deadly missteps, were ...

Catholics’ moral obligations in voting

For Catholics, responsible citizenship/voting, is important. However, a critical issue hasn’t been explained well to Catholic voters: a candidate’s position on just one issue disqualifies him/her from receiving votes from faithful Catholics. A “disqualifying issue” pertains to actions ...

Levesque gets things done

The people of Nashua, Brookline, Hollis, Mason, New Ipswich, and Rindge have an important choice to make this election season. We have the opportunity to reelect Melanie Levesque to the New Hampshire State Senate so she can continue advocating for working families. Since taking office, she ...

Support Donna Soucy

The coronavirus has been hard on Granite Staters, but it has also given us an opportunity to observe how our elected officials react in challenging times when we need them the most. As a constituent of Senator Donna Soucy, I watched carefully to see if she would rise to the occasion. I can now ...

Support Logistics Center

I am writing in support of the Hudson Logistics Center proposal being considered. This is a great opportunity for our town and we should not let this pass the great Town of Hudson HN by. The new tax revenue Hudson will receive each year to improve the school system for my children as well as ...

Levesque: An education Advocate

I am writing to express my strong support of Senator Melanie Levesque’s reelection to the State Senate. I have been a public-school teacher in Nashua for 34 years. In that time, I can recall few elected officials who have supported public education more than Melanie. She is truly a champion ...
