Letter: Override that veto

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

It is with sadness that I write this letter in support of overriding the governor’s veto of House Bill 591, the so-called anti-bullying bill to protect state workers. I’m sad because the governor has been promoting her bipartisan solutions in recent campaign ads, yet she vetoed this bill that both houses supported in a bipartisan effort, and which her office was involved in creating. We are told she vetoed it … 1

Letter: Party swapping isn’t easy or common in New Hampshire

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

A recent editorial stated that in New Hampshire, “party swapping is as common an occurrence as the leaves changing color” and that “devoted Democrats could have had their say in the GOP Senate Primary.” That is wrong. An affiliated voter has to decide to change parties about three months before the election. In order to switch party registration for the 2014 general election, … 0

Letter:

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Brown will push state back toward 2008 Scott Brown has amnesia. His recent ad states that the economy is suffering in New Hampshire, but he forgot that the Republican Party, his party, destroyed our economy in 2008 and gave us the worst economy in 80 years since the Great Depression. He also states that Obamacare isn’t working, which is a total lie. Millions … 0

Letter: A strong foundation

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

I have many life experiences that can help me do a good job as a state representative for the people of Laconia, including my time as state fire marshal. In 1984, then-Gov. John Sununu was looking to appoint the state’s top fire official. I happened to be visiting … 0

Letter: Hassan has my vote

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

I support Gov. Maggie Hassan for re-election. She is a governor who knows the people of the state and the issues that confront them. She recognizes the right of women to make their own health choices. She spends time listening to her constituents, not just donors. She supports … 0

Letter: Ardinger is a class act

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

I would like to say thank you to Kass Ardinger. Thank you for wanting to continue in public service representing us in the state Senate. Thank you for running a very clean race against Dan Feltes. Even though I voted for Feltes, the district would have been well-represented … 0

Letter: A place of their own

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

When I walk along Main Street and on the Heights, I notice that there are no places where teenagers can hang out besides the skate park. I know there’s the Concord Boys & Girls Club and the YMCA, but why isn’t there a place just for teenagers to … 0

Letter: Insulting Foley’s memory

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

As a veteran who believes that militarism and war are not the answer to the recent events in the Middle East, I want to point out that President Obama, in part, is using the death of James Foley to justify further violence there. In 2012, I went to … 0

Letter: Thank you for the support

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

The New Hampshire primary election has been held, votes have been cast and the results tabulated. I want to congratulate my opponent in the Democratic primary race for state Senate, Dan Feltes, on his victory. He will be a formidable Democratic nominee in the general election Nov. 4. … 0

Letter: A disservice to readers

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

I thank my supporters who came out to vote in the primary election, even though the final results of the county commissioner race were disappointing to me. I also thank my constituents in Concord’s South End, who elected me to three terms in the House of Representatives. It’s … 2

Letter: Shaheen, not Brown, has worked toward gender equity

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

What are commonly called “women’s issues” are really everyone’s issues. Fairness is not a zero sum game. The Paycheck Fairness Act, supported by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and twice voted down by Scott Brown while he has senator from Massachusetts, is meant to insure that you, your wife, your … 1

Letter: Shaheen’s blind loyalty

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Throughout Barack Obama’s presidency, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has been one of his most ardent supporters. She helped push Obamacare through with deceptive promises, she co-sponsored the DREAM Act, creating a magnet for illegal immigration, and co-signed a letter to the IRS prodding extra scrutiny of political opponents. When … 2

Letter: What about the Democrats?

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

The November election is not just one-sided, Concord Monitor. What’s up? Equal coverage for the Democrats – Jeanne Shaheen, Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter – would be welcomed on the front page, too. ANNIE BAILEY Northwood … 0
