Letter: Paying for the past

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Congratulations to Dan Feltes for his stunning win in his primary election bid. He will be an excellent candidate for the state Senate. It was not surprising that Kass Ardinger did so poorly, losing by wide margins in every ward, including her own. Perhaps her long history of tax and spend on the school board has finally caught up with her. JIM BAER Concord … 0

Letter: No evidence that Brown cares about New Hampshire

Sunday, September 14, 2014

I am not a native of New Hampshire, but I have lived here long enough – almost a decade – to feel insulted by Scott Brown’s eagerness to use my adopted state as a springboard back to Washington. Just like Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Brown’s only motive is “vaulting ambition, which o’er leaps itself, and lands upon another.” For the latest, please read Kathy Rogers’s … 0

Letter: A questionable claim

Sunday, September 14, 2014

I haven’t decided how I’ll vote in November, but I found it amazing that there would be a piece immediately after the election with absolutely nothing to back up the charges that were made. In a era of dirty politics, this is right up there with the best. Katherine Rogers accuses Scott Brown of inviting people from out of state to cross the … 2

My Turn: Coup in Thailand put military in power

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Americans by nature are not the most engaged when it comes to following world affairs. At times, earth-shattering events like the plane shot down in Ukraine, the push to block nuclear weapons in Iran or incidents in North Korea have a way of grabbing our attention. New Hampshire, … 0

Letter: Lambert not what nation needs

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

This is in response to Gary Lambert’s abusive “My Turn” (Monitor Forum, Sept. 3) directed at the twice-elected president of the United States. I trust the voters of New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District will recall that the Republican-controlled Congresses of the past four years have been the least … 0

Letter: A waste of money

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Dan Feltes and Kass Ardinger have been littering my mailbox for weeks with political fliers. I have also received five or six phone calls and a personal visit promoting their candidacies for state Senate. Is there no other outlet where this money can be more wisely spent? People … 2

Letter: The trouble with politics

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Over the past weeks, I have received a load of promotional mail from both the Dan Feltes and Kass Ardinger campaigns. I think this particular campaign has gotten unnecessarily negative, and I hold Ardinger responsible for most of that. What I see is that there really is a … 0

Letter: Feltes has right background

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

I have served as a state representative for 18 years. I know how vital it is to have someone serve who knows the legislative process and has a history of getting things done. Dan Feltes is that candidate. Dan has years of experience in energy matters before the … 0

Letter:

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Feltes tough-minded, brave Dan Feltes is the better of two very good candidates to represent the capital area in the state Senate. Consider his decision to leave his successful career as a lawyer for the poor, the elderly, the prisoners and the disabled to run for a $100-a-year … 0

Letter: Help me shape stronger future

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

It’s been my honor to talk with thousands of neighbors and fellow citizens this summer. I want to thank you for sharing your stories as well as your hopes for the future of our district and our state. What I’ve heard over and over again rings true with … 0

Letter: Fraher a memorable teacher

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

New Hampshire has the opportunity to elect someone who believes in the Constitution, the state, country and in people. Nancy Fraher, back in my days known as Ms. Brison, is running for a Senate seat in District 17. I couldn’t be more proud of her, nor can I … 0

Letter: Watrous deserves support

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

I have been teaching elementary grade students in New Hampshire for 38 years and in Concord for 26 years. Currently, I am teaching fourth grade and part of our curriculum is learning about New Hampshire’s state government. Rick Watrous, who is running for county commissioner, has served in … 0

Editorial: What’s on the ballot? Just democracy

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Why even bother voting today? First of all, it’s just a primary. Today’s winners won’t actually win anything other than a chance to go on to the next round. Secondly, all politicians are the same. Republicans will stick to the party line and so will Democrats. There is … 3
