Letter: Re-elect Raymond

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Rep. Ian Raymond has been a great asset to the Lakes Region and New Hampshire. His leadership has created jobs and saved taxpayers money. He has initiated projects that have already saved the taxpayers $300,000 and will ultimately save us $5 million. For this work, Raymond has been recognized by the Winnisquam School District and the town of Sanbornton. Ian Raymond is an honest, hard-working man who represents us well. …

Letter: Unpopular positions

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Four years ago, a well-funded effort by out-of-state Republicans succeeded (temporarily) in derailing New Hampshire’s steady progress toward gender equality and inclusive government. The specter of women controlling both chambers of the Legislature in addition to the corner office must have been too much for Karl Rove, the American Legislative Exchange Council and the Koch brothers, all of whom supported Speaker Bill O’Brien’s …

Letter: D’Ovidio will have your back

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Letter: Not the only one

Friday, October 24, 2014

Having worked for the Executive Council for 30-plus years, I enjoyed your article regarding the Executive Council and the accompanying quiz (Monitor Forum, Oct. 16).

Letter: Meet Tom Dawson

Friday, October 24, 2014

Letter: Fennessy for school board

Friday, October 24, 2014

I write in strong support of Nathan Fennessy, a candidate for the Concord School Board in Wards 5, 6 and 7. Nathan supports full-day kindergarten because of the academic benefits to our youngest students and because an abbreviated school day places a burden on working families. He also …

Letter: Let climate guide you

Friday, October 24, 2014

Rob Werner has done a public service in outlining the reasons that voters “must weigh climate change choices” (Monitor Forum, Oct. 12). In the days since his column appeared, we have reports that August and September were the hottest months ever recorded (that is a worldwide average, even …
