Letter: Moffett, Saunderson and Carey deserve your vote

Thursday, October 23, 2014

I am writing in support of three candidates to represent Loudon and Canterbury in the state House of Representatives: Howard Moffett and George Saunderson in Merrimack District 9, and Lorrie Carey in Merrimack District 26. Incumbents Lorrie and Howard have worked hard for all citizens on many bills that have come before them. They have answered all my calls and emails, as I am sure they did for all of …

Letter: Schuett, DeBold, Doherty will support education

Thursday, October 23, 2014

I am writing to support Dianne Schuett, Richard DeBold and Dave Doherty in the upcoming election for state representatives in the towns of Pembroke and Chichester. Two issues that are important to me have led me to believe that these people will make sound decisions for the people of New Hampshire. When candidates talk about cutting taxes, I know that means that essential …

Letter: A dated platform

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Thank you for exposing the extreme right-wing platform of the Republican Party (Sunday Monitor front page, Oct. 12). It is little wonder that the top of the ticket Republicans run from that platform, but a shame that those candidates – Scott Brown and Walt Havenstein – didn’t exercise …

Letter: D’Ovidio experienced, wise

Thursday, October 23, 2014

I would like to elaborate on Dennis D’Ovidio’s experience and qualities that make him well suited for the New Hampshire House of Representatives. Dennis dedicated 34 years of public service to our state working for the Department of Health and Human Services. He spent 25 years as an …

Letter: Luneau solid on the issues

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

As the Nov. 4 general election nears, I urge you to consider David Luneau, independent candidate for the state House of Representatives, Merrimack County District 10. When Rep. Gary Richardson indicated to me that he would not seek re-election, I immediately thought of David. After graduating from MIT, …

Letter: Icky

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Seriously? A front page story about a woman with big breasts (Monitor, Oct. 21)? Where’s the news value? It felt icky. LISA BROWN Concord …

Letter: Keep Jews in mind

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

I am writing to educate to people who schedule programs and events. Every fall, Jews observe the two holiest days on our calendar – Rosh Hashanah (New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). Many Jews who otherwise do not attend worship services do attend services or observe …

Letter: Risky business

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

The Mount Sunapee lease saved two mountains – Mount Sunapee and Cannon Mountain. More than $7.5 million in lease payments have gone to Cannon Mountain to provide for a high-speed quad, snowmaking, grooming and other improvements. People come to Sunapee from various backgrounds: young families with children learning …

Letter: Competent and reasonable

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I was delighted when I found out that my neighbor, Anne Baier, was running for one of the Bow-Dunbarton State House seats. She is a great listener and cares deeply about our community. She has lived in Bow for 27 years and devoted 11 years to serving on …

Letter: The straight ticket

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

This political season it seems all the Democrats in contention for re-election want to do is characterize their Republican opponents as the “bogeyman.” They don’t seem to want to run on their record. At least I haven’t noticed much political glorifying by Democrats so far. Understandable given the …

Letter: We need the Tea Party

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

To my fellow citizens: I hope that we as voters are getting informed and engaged because I think as all of us can see after the last election, there have been consequences. With the amount of scandals coming out of this administration and the passing of the buck …

Letter: Time to regain world’s respect

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

How in the world can you vote for the Democrats this upcoming election when President Obama himself recently said in a speech that voting for the Democrats is a vote for his policies. That should scare all of us who vote knowing that the liberals all march in …
