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

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

U.N. says CO2 pollution levels at annual record high

Letter: Let’s elect Scott Brown

Monday, September 15, 2014

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every decision, financial, political and/or social results in intended and unintended consequences. For the past six years, the American people supported the president expecting that we could “transform” the country in positive ways. This did not happen. Enabled … 18

Letter: A few lines about Brown

Monday, September 15, 2014

Regarding Scott Brown’s primary win: Three old adages come to mind. New Hampshire voters appear to have swallowed his ad campaign promises “hook, line and sinker.” However, the “proof of the pudding” will be, if elected in November, his performance in Washington. “All that glitters may not be … 1

Letter: What are you thinking, Brown?

Monday, September 15, 2014

Scott Brown, Scott Brown, owner of barn jacket and pickup truck: What makes you think you are qualified to become a U.S. senator from New Hampshire? What gives you the notion that you’re better than Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who has been representing the people of this state, yes, … 1

Letter: Not made in New Hampshire

Monday, September 15, 2014

The term “state and local election” is becoming an oxymoron with all of the outside money that is pouring into our campaigns. Instead of the meaningless names of the PACs that appear with political ads and tell you nothing about who is really paying, they should be required … 0

Monday, September 15, 2014

Recently, at the request of liberal senators, such as Jeanne Shaheen, who are close to losing their seats this November, President Obama decided to hold off on granting amnesty for thousands of illegal immigrants by executive order until after November. It’s no secret that Shaheen stands with President … 3

Letter: Ayotte meets with everybody

Monday, September 15, 2014

I wanted to take a moment to thank Sen. Kelly Ayotte for being the only member of the state’s congressional delegation to hold town hall meetings. Despite the fact she knows that liberal extremists will show up to her meetings to try to cause problems, she refuses to … 9

Letter: A bridge worth saving

Monday, September 15, 2014

It’s a crying shame that the city council let the Sewalls Falls Bridge get to this point of closing. It’s been an issue for years. Why they didn’t designate a small amount of our tax money over the many years of neglect is beyond me. I’ve been a … 0

Letter: Thank you, Penacook

Monday, September 15, 2014

I would like to thank everyone I have met; I have learned a tremendous amount about Penacook. The residents of Penacook are sick of being treated like a lesser class and want a representative that will actually represent them in the Legislature, not someone who is trying to … 0

Letter: Hosmer is a friend to seniors

Monday, September 15, 2014

I voted for Sen. Andrew Hosmer in the primary, and I will vote for him in the general election Nov. 4. It was so nice to see him at the polls in Gilford. His character and commitment to public service is clear as he engages with constituents – … 0
