Letter: Feltes is a strong progressive

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Democratic primary voters in the Concord area have a choice between two very good candidates for state senator. After listening carefully to both in two settings, the choice of Dan Feltes was easy for me. I plan to vote for him, and have knocked on doors in my neighborhood on his behalf. In this Democratic district, we have an opportunity to elect a strong progressive. Work as a legal assistance … 1

Letter: An unfortunate turn

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Alas, I thought the primary contest for state senator in District 15 was going to be decided based on voters’ respectful personal choice since it seemed the Democratic candidates were each solid contenders and in sync about most state issues ahead. But, sadly, contender Dan Feltes has recently stirred up a lot of empty smoke around the issue of full-day kindergarten. This seemed … 2

Letter: The descent into mudslinging

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Sometimes it’s enough to tell friends and family who you are going to vote for and why, letting the political process unfold. But recently, Dan Feltes has decided to sling mud at candidate Kass Ardinger. What a shame. I truly thought this was going to be a race on ideology. I received a flier today of a sweet little girl looking pensive. It … 1

Letter: Concord-Franklin connection

Sunday, August 31, 2014

The recent issues surrounding the Vegas Block in Concord have struck a chord in Franklin, which is facing some of the same important challenges, although on a smaller scale. As Franklin works on different revitalization efforts, we recognize the need to provide housing opportunities for everyone – including … 0

Letter: An issue of humanity

Sunday, August 31, 2014

I read with great interest the article “State hospital adds beds, crisis unit” (Sunday Monitor, Aug. 24). I applaud the efforts by the state hospital. Most of us know all too well the burden of those who have faced mental challenges since the state decided to make cuts … 0

Letter: Feltes courageous and compassionate

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Like all states, New Hampshire has many underdogs. Most find that status through no fault of their own. Too many are women. They may be disabled, unemployed, homeless, single mothers or abused. An understanding of their needs and how to help requires more than an economic analysis. The … 0

Letter: Feltes’s position regarding full-day kindergarten is clear

Sunday, August 31, 2014

It was with great interest that I read the My Turn column “Ardinger didn’t oppose full-day kindergarten,” which purports to “correct misstatements made by Dan Feltes” that Kass Ardinger voted against full-day kindergarten as a member of the Concord School Board. However, a careful read of the letter … 0

This week we celebrated Women’s Equality Day, which commemorates the ratification of the 19th Amendment that secured women’s right to vote.

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 … 18

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 … 4

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 … 2
