Knowing New Hampshire

What does it mean to represent your community, your state? For me, it means knowing my neighbors and doing what’s right for New Hampshire. I took part in my 3rd Hollis candidates’ forum on October 14th along with two Republican candidates both of whom moved to New Hampshire in 2018. They ...

Vote for Negron

After many years serving teaching graduate school and in ordained ministry I was elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives in 2016. As an avid “people watcher,” I started sizing up my new colleagues. One person, also a first-term legislator, stood out: Steve Negron. As I ...

What has Sununu cost us?

With more than $4 BILLION leaving the state every year to pay for our energy, it’s a smart town that finds a better way. Take a useless plot of land – say, an old landfill-cover it with solar panels, and let the sun do the rest. If the sun gives you MORE energy than you can use, the ...

Always in our corner

Cindy Rosenwald must be reelected to the NH Senate in District 13 (Nashua Wards 3,4,6,7,8, and 9). She is a true leader on health care. She fought to put protection for pre-existing conditions coverage in state law. This is important because up to half of New Hampshire adults will have a ...

Don’t rubberstamp Sununu

That’s what Dave Wheeler would do if elected to the Executive Council. “Stand with Governor Sununu” states his campaign literature. Wheeler doesn’t understand the role of the Executive Council with a constitutional responsibility to oversee State Government ensuring judicial and ...

Go to your town clerk’s office

Nov. 3 is close at hand and you can vote without going to the polls if you are concerned about COVID. Go to your town clerk’s office (check in advance for their hours), fill out an absentee ballot application form, hand it in, and ask for your election ballot. Take it somewhere private. Fill ...

Vote for Dan Feltes

At this summer’s GOP Convention, the party “RESOLVED, That the 2020 Republican National Convention will adjourn without adopting a new platform. . . .” This led distinguished former Republican George Will to observe in the Oct. 8 Washington Post that “Republicans said: Trump is all ...

Vote Messner

We have an opportunity to elect as our senator the Job Creator Corky Messner. Corky went to West Point, and after service as an army officer assigned to the Rangers he went to law school. He then created his own law firm with over 100 employees. One of the companies he took public and has ...

Vote for Joe Biden

As I a first-time voter and the product of immigrants, I want to share why this year I am voting for Joe Biden. The first reason that comes to mind is because of Joe Biden’s commitment to preserving DACA and other structures that broaden access to legal immigration and offer more paths to ...

Sununu’s blind loyalty to Trump

Is there anything President Trump could do to lose Governor Sununu’s support? Deliberately mislead Americans about the deadliness of Covid-19? Rip nursing babies out of their mothers’ arms and lock three-year-olds in cages? Cozy up to Putin even as he’s putting bounties on our soldiers’ ...

Keep Donald Trump

I lived in New Hampshire for the first 23 years of my life, born in Woodsville, 12 years of school in Gorham, and 4 years of college in Durham. I lived in Lisbon, Bath, Dover, Portsmouth, Nottingham, Orford and other towns as young fellows tended to do. My family came from Benton, Landaff, ...

Proud of Rosenwald

In my opinion, State Senator Cindy Rosenwald, must be reelected to the New Hampshire Senate. Her work over the years to lower the cost of health care has been stellar. New Hampshire has the dubious distinction of the highest health care costs in the entire country, and the ever-increasing ...

A plan for climate change

Climate change is one of the major issues that is affecting everyone around the world. From heavy pollutants causing the rise of the Earth’s overall temperatures, the drastic amount of plastic waste in our oceans, and fracking that occurs in the United States. But no one seems to have a clear ...

Kenda for state rep

I am endorsing Steve Kenda for Bedford, NH State Representative. He is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which is to say Steve is a reasonably sharp guy. For over a quarter of a century Steve has been a successful leader and pragmatic businessman. We need more of ...

Kenosha, Portland and Seattle come to Greater Nashua

On Oct. 22, The Telegraph reported that Milford police, Brookline police, the Attorney General’s office and the Post Office are investigating threatening letters recently sent to supporters of President Trump in these towns. The gist of the letters appears to be: “Vote for Biden or we’ll ...

America: A land of ceaseless conflict

When Amy Coney Barrett was nominated to a judgeship on the U.S. Court of Appeals in 2017, Sen. Dianne Feinstein was taken aback by the Notre Dame law professor's Catholic convictions about the right to life. "Professor," said Feinstein, "when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws ...

‘I’m here to endorse a candidate’

Allow me, please, a point of personal privilege. Folks keep telling me how easy Donald Trump has made my job. For four years, I've had these discussions where we ruminate on the singular awfulness of that man and then the other person says, by way of consolation, "At least you never have to ...

Both candidates’ risky strategies

Are both presidential candidates trying to lose? Or at least pursuing campaign strategies which put them at grave risk of defeat? In nearly four years, Donald Trump has made little effort to win over the 50%-plus of voters who didn't support him in 2016. Having proved that he could win the ...

Reinventing fitness in the COVID-19 era

COVID-19 is a terrifying wake-up call for out-of-shape Americans. More than four in 10 U.S. adults are obese, and 60 percent have at least one chronic disease, putting them at high risk of serious COVID-19 complications -- or worse. Individuals with chronic illnesses are 12 times more likely ...

Road trips, music and politics during a pandemic

VACATION, Southern Utah - Our vacation this year took us through parts of Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Nevada. Coming from a liberal college town, we noticed a stark contrast in political lawn signs. And in mask wearing. One rural Utah convenience store displayed a sign on their door "Masks are ...
