The 2020 election infected by the coronavirus

Every political season has a different tone and atmosphere, but this year’s might have come from a galaxy far, far away. First the coronavirus pandemic eliminated traditional campaigning and replaced it with virtual Zoom meetings, face masks, social distancing and absentee ballots. Gone ...

Access to affordable care should be expanded

The president did it again on Sept. 29, during his tantrum on the debate stage. For the umpteenth time, he promised the American people the best, cheapest, most comprehensive replacement for the ACA (Obamacare) in the history of mankind. So where’s this plan, and where has it been this past ...

Republican women are ready to take back the Legislature

One hundred years ago, this year, the 19th Amendment was ratified and women were finally granted the right to vote. I am proud to be from a state where we have a long history of empowered Republican women fighting for women’s rights. From Marilla Ricker, to Vetsa Roy, to Donna Sytek, and ...

Dream job: My future in pharmaceuticals

Ever since drug companies began advertising on television in 1997, viewers have been barraged with the latest end-all cures for whatever ails you. The names, clever or clumsy, come with a bevy of side effects. Since Washington D.C. is so busy lately, what with distancing themselves from the ...

Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

Editor’s note: During the course of a week, issues are covered that might not lend themselves to full editorial comment, but they are worthy of The Sunday Telegraph weighing in – thumbs up, thumbs down or neutral. ––– Thumbs UP – Once again to area teachers, school ...

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. ...
