Letter: Important step for women

Thursday, July 24, 2014

On Tuesday, Gov. Maggie Hassan signed into law SB 207, the Paycheck Fairness Act. I would like to thank the sponsor of the bill, Sen. Sylvia Larsen, for her commitment and effectiveness in helping to raise the level of economic security experienced by women and their families in New Hampshire. According to the United States Census Bureau, New Hampshire women working full time, year-round earn 77 cents for every dollar … 0

Letter: Disappointed in Ardinger

Thursday, July 24, 2014

I know Dan Feltes is committed to making the primary campaign for the District 15 Senate seat about the issues that matter to the citizens of this district, rather than about attacks. This is why I am particularly disappointed that Kass Ardinger has chosen to attack Dan on the issues of choice and women’s health rather than engaging him in a conversation on … 0

Letter: Women and freedom

Thursday, July 24, 2014

We have been told that we women need freedom, and that includes killing the unborn through abortion. A big part of being a woman is a strong maternal instinct. We are not men. We by design are meant to carry life. The topic of health care includes our mental health. Many women are hurt by abortion. Freedom is actually accepting a God-given role … 0

Letter: Questionable spin

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Israel bombs a neighborhood, kills children and it’s the Palestinians’ fault for not leaving their homes. What an Orwellian twist. Long live Hamas. JAMES SCHULER Weare … 5

Letter: The carbon solution

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I thank Walter Carlson for his clear explanation of global warming science (Monitor Forum, July 16). He told it like it is without mincing words. I wish he hadn’t left us with all the knowledge and no solutions. There is a superb solution: carbon fee and dividend. By … 6

Letter: Wrong about Ardinger

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

It appears that Elaine Kellerman holds strong personal opinions on certain public matters that may or may not have relevance to the upcoming District 15 Senate race (Monitor letters, July 16). She is wrong in her information about the school board’s acquisition of Concord residences that made way … 2

Letter: Feltes has my vote

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

As an attorney working primarily in the area of health law and as a small business owner, I will gladly cast my vote for Dan Feltes for state senator of District 15 on Sept. 9. Dan appreciates that providing access to health care is critical to economic growth … 1

Letter: Shea-Porter knows key to creating job growth

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is a friend of small business. She introduced the Reward and Encourage New Business Act, a bill to permanently double the tax deduction for new businesses to $10,000. This is the right way to help both businesses and employment. According to the Washington Post, job … 1

Letter: Shaheen is a fighter

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has proven she listens to the women of New Hampshire and fights to make sure they get the care they deserve. As governor, she signed into law a contraception mandate that had broad bipartisan support. Shaheen understands the importance of preventative care, as it has … 1

Letter: Raise the diesel tax

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Your editorial on a long-term fix for the federal highway fund focuses on the impossible and the silly (Sunday Monitor Opinion, July 13). We have a problem, and it needs a quick solution. However, you propose to use general funds “paid for” by eliminating tax credits for the … 9

Letter: Ardinger is a steady voice

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I know Kass Ardinger will work hard on behalf of her constituents in particular and for the state in general. She will be thoughtful about what comes before the Senate and will look ahead to accomplish the best outcomes. Her work on behalf of hungry families and her … 0

Editorial: Passage of time shouldn’t aid child abusers

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

The time has come for New Hampshire to eliminate the statute of limitations on sexual crimes against children. As it stands, the state can pursue charges only until the victim turns 40. We were reminded of the folly of this particular law last week, when Kenneth Day of … 1

Letter: A question of accessibility

Monday, July 21, 2014

How is it that CATCH, whose mission would seem to imply attention to the needs of persons with disabilities, has built an inaccessible store in its Endicott Hotel renovation? Did no staff member, board member or architectural consultant catch this flaw? The renovations to the Endicott were clearly … 0
