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 the worse. Now, the minority has no voice to oppose radical appointments. Her support has allowed Harry Reid to block House bills, …

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 wide The brothers Koch clearly on his side Now wouldn’t that be neat For Massachusetts …

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 they are opponents in the same district!) has brought a fresh perspective on how to …

Letter: Other invasives

Thursday, October 16, 2014

I was happy to see Ayn Whytemare’s piece “Destroy the invaders (with some help from the goats)” in the Sept. 8 Monitor. I’d rather have seen photos of the mentioned invasives, however, than a photo of a Maryland goat. I was also disappointed to see no mention of …

Letter: Not so clear

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Let us clarify a major truth about Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s “Clear Choice” (Monitor front page, Oct. 4). This is not entirely a woman’s issue. In the opinion of the majority of both men and women, it is an offense against women and their ability to bear children. Women …

I support Anne Baier, who is running for state representative in Merrimack County District 23 because she is a strong candidate who will represent our district well. Anne is a 27-year resident of Bow and has been very active in the community. She served on the Bow School …

Letter: Undervalued

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

I understand the justification for the enormous rate increases at Unitil and Liberty Utilities – increased demand for natural gas combined with constrained supply has led to a spike in natural gas prices, the preferred fuel for most regional power generators. I also understand that these conditions are …

Letter: A daughter’s endorsement

Letter: A solid record

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

In response to a recent letter about Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s attendance, etc. (Monitor letters, Sept. 6): She does have a job to do, and as far as I can see she is one of the few really doing it. She just debated on the same day the letter …
