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 to ski; school programs; the inspirational adaptive ski program; seniors well into their 70s, 80s and even 90s; and many visitors from …

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 the Bow School Board. For six years, she was trustee of the Concord Community Music …

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 facts available to consider on their collective record. To me it’s not the Republicans that …

Editorial: Kansas has a few lessons for New Hampshire

Letter: Moffett the moderate

Monday, October 20, 2014

I urge all thoughtful voters to mark your ballot for Howard Moffett, candidate for re-election as a state representative. Howard is a moderate Democrat with the unique ability to hear all sides of an issue and has demonstrated collaboration in reaching across the aisle. His background as an …

Letter: The wrong choice

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Please vote against Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. She is not a moderate. Shaheen has supported every radical left Obama/Reid policy. Obamacare was forced upon us in a dishonest, partisan manner. Shaheen said we could keep our doctor; not true. She voted for the nuclear option, changing our government for …

There once was a senator named Scott Who lost his senatorial spot So he looked to his border to the North For a takeover to bring forth He waltzed on over the New Hampshire border To create a new senatorial order The funds flew in from far and …

Letter: A fresh perspective

Sunday, October 19, 2014

In this political atmosphere of negative (and sometimes dishonest) campaigning, it is difficult to become excited about a visit to the polling booth. However, during his first term as a New Hampshire representative, Howard Moffett (not Mike Moffett – we ask that you not confuse the two, as …

Letter: A responsive representative

Sunday, October 19, 2014

State Rep. Richard McNamara deserves the support of Monitor readers on election day. Here’s just one example of why I say this: Richard immediately stepped up to the plate to sponsor a bill (HB 1600) that streamlined government bureaucracy when I described a problem that I had with …

Letter: Fennessy is a problem-solver

Sunday, October 19, 2014

As a former resident of Concord’s South End and the spouse of a school district employee, I’m confident that in this year’s school board election, the best choice to represent Wards 5, 6, and 7 is Nathan Fennessy. Over the past two years, I’ve had the pleasure of …

Letter: I am a woman, too!

Sunday, October 19, 2014

At 71, retired and on a fixed income, I reflect about women’s responsibilities. During child-bearing years, I took responsibility and paid for my own birth control. Why now do women expect that it should be a covered medical benefit? And why has it become a political debate? However, …

Letter: What’s Brown’s motivation?

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Why does New Hampshire need a “homeless politician?” One who ran and was elected in Massachusetts. One who did such a lousy job that he was not re-elected. Normally, the word re-elect is nice to have on an election banner. Usually, that is. Maybe, he is not actually …

Letter: Pretty face, no scruples

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Of late, I’ve been repeatedly delayed in viewing content on You Tube music due to a political ad that cannot be skipped. The ad states that the approval rating for Congress is an abysmal 14 percent due to political bickering. It then singles out Democrat Jeanne Shaheen and …

Letter: An oil man

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Scott Brown is a newcomer to our state, a man our neighbors to the south were overwhelmingly glad to get rid of. He is a man who is bought and paid for by the major oil companies. The last time he was in Washington he took more oil …
