Letter: Equality is an ongoing battle

Saturday, August 30, 2014

This week we celebrated Women’s Equality Day, which commemorates the ratification of the 19th Amendment that secured women’s right to vote. What better time to talk about the stakes for New Hampshire women and their families this upcoming November than now, because elections mean choices, and it’s crucial for New Hampshire women to know the stakes so that we don’t cede the progress being made. For example, New Hampshire Democrats … 0

Letter: Behind the destruction

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Will Green of Sutton wrote (Monitor letters, Aug. 23), “Now I understand that young man’s death was tragic down in Missouri, but how in the world does that give people the right to destroy where they lived?” I would like to clue Green in on a word he has probably never given much thought to or had to deal with, and that word … 3

Letter: A lack of knowledge

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Dennis Hamel’s letter (Monitor letters, Aug. 18) continued the recent Republican attack on geographic literacy by ridiculing Rep. Annie Kuster for being unaware that Benghazi is in the Middle East. Benghazi is not in the Middle East. Benghazi is in Libya, which is in Africa. The only part of Africa that is in the Middle East is Egypt. I don’t understand the thought … 1

Letter: It’s no fun for the pigs

Unsubstantiated claim of the policeman's injuries - really? Any chance the DOJ's racist-in-chief has defensive evidence suppressed? As the felon (by definition...(full comment)

Letter: Behind the destruction

Letter: Letter writer wrong about Marketplace Fairness Act

Saturday, August 30, 2014

It’s disappointing that the Monitor is again giving Scott Metzger a platform to peddle distortions of the Marketplace Fairness Act (Monitor letters, Aug. 18). He continues to describe the misnamed Marketplace Fairness Act as being aimed at large business. In fact, the largest retailers (Walmart and Amazon) support … 0

Letter: It’s no fun for the pigs

Saturday, August 30, 2014

I am writing concerning the picture appearing in the Aug. 12 issue of the Monitor depicting the “pig rassle” event in Stephensville, Wisc. This form of entertainment may have been fun for the human spectators, but it is torture and stressful for the pigs forced to participate, even … 4

Letter: Feltes is stronger candidate

Friday, August 29, 2014

I am pleased to support Dan Feltes in his race for the New Hampshire Senate. Early in the campaign, Dan sought me out to ask for my vote. We met for an hour to discuss the issues. I intentionally asked some provocative questions knowing that the Senate can … 0

Letter: Ardinger ready to serve

Friday, August 29, 2014

Does eight years of experience as a paid advocate for special interests of individuals and groups and eight weeks of accepting contributions from special interest groups really prepare one to represent all of the people in District 15? Iffy. For certain is Kass Ardinger’s strong, thoughtful and passionate … 0

Letter: ‘Monitor’ needs to offer clarity on state of housing

Friday, August 29, 2014

The Monitor’s editorial on the Vegas Block (Monitor Opinion, Aug. 15) is so muddled that it gives us little solid idea of whether its conclusion is correct or not. We are told that housing downtown is skewed toward low-income housing because 267 units are subsidized in one fashion … 2

Letter: Ardinger is independent

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Dear fellow District 15 voters: As the Sept. 9 Democratic primary election for District 15 state Senate draws near, I would like to share with you my reasons for supporting Kass Ardinger. I have known Kass both professionally and personally for the past 20 years. As a 30-year … 0

Letter: Blatant sexism

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I am annoyed by the sexism immediately displayed in your front-page political coverage of Sunday, Aug. 17. To wit: “State Senate candidate Kass Ardinger stood . . . in her tan skirt and neon blue-and-green walking sneakers.” “As Joanne Keough stood . . . State Senate candidate Dan … 3

Letter: Feltes campaign manager wrong about Ardinger

Thursday, August 28, 2014

State Senate candidate Dan Feltes’s campaign manager, Karen McNamara, apparently did not fully understand (Monitor letters, Aug. 22) the well-written explanation by Concord School Board President Clint Cogswell of the board’s 2009 decision concerning sizing of the new schools (Monitor Forum, Aug. 21). Demographic changes and declining enrollments, … 0

Letter: Feltes conscientious, capable

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I encourage residents of Concord, Hopkinton, Henniker and Warner to vote for Dan Feltes for Senate on Sept. 9. I have worked with Dan and know him to be a conscientious and capable advocate, helping others achieve the fairness and justice we all deserve. Dan’s work with low-income … 0

Letter: Not fair to veterans

Thursday, August 28, 2014

In 2012, the state Legislature passed legislation allowing veterans to have their veterans status indicated on their driver’s license, thus providing us with a photo ID proving our service to our country. A veterans photo ID is something that major stores always require before they will provide a … 4
