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 ...

Rosenwald is responsive and caring

On the third of November, there is no question that I’ll be voting to reelect Cindy Rosenwald to the State Senate for District 13 (Nashua wards 3,4,6,7,8, and 9). During the financial upheaval caused by the pandemic, she has worked tirelessly to make sure people get the unemployment ...

Managed growth in Hudson

The promise of commercial development to gain tax revenue is by itself not a viable solution for Hudson to sustain the quality of life that defines our town. The Green Meadow Golf Club property that is being proposed by a developer for use as a logistics center has brought into sharp focus the ...

It’s time to stop being controlled

I hope that the Aldermen don’t pass another mask ordinance. This is something they should not have gotten into in the first place. Have to admit, I have not paid much attention to them before, but I am now. If they can’t find something better to do than to try imposing their will on the ...

Is peace at hand in the Middle East?

Having presided over the recognition of Israel by the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, President Donald Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize amid talk of peace breaking out across the region. Assuredly, this is a major diplomatic breakthrough, and Nancy's Pelosi's sour-grapes ...

Price controls rob patients of future therapies

President Trump just announced a sweeping executive order that'd forbid Medicare from paying more for advanced medicines than any other developed country. This price control scheme, if implemented, would sound a death knell for medical innovation -- and potentially for many patients. Drug ...
