Letter: Moffett, Saunderson and Carey deserve your vote

Thursday, October 23, 2014

I am writing in support of three candidates to represent Loudon and Canterbury in the state House of Representatives: Howard Moffett and George Saunderson in Merrimack District 9, and Lorrie Carey in Merrimack District 26.

Letter: Schuett, DeBold, Doherty will support education

Thursday, October 23, 2014

I am writing to support Dianne Schuett, Richard DeBold and Dave Doherty in the upcoming election for state representatives in the towns of Pembroke and Chichester. Two issues that are important to me have led me to believe that these people will make sound decisions for the people of New Hampshire.

Letter: Time to party, Concord

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Realizing that 2015 is my 50th year since graduating from CHS, I recently pulled out of my archives a book called At the Bend in the River, which was written to commemorate Concord’s bicentennial in 1965. It then dawned on me that my original home city will be …

Letter: Chicken plant wrong for city

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Many people do not agree that the city should say yes to the chicken slaughterhouse plant. Property owners are concerned about their property values, because a person’s home is the most valuable thing that they ever buy. It seems that everyone who wants the chicken slaughterhouse does not …

Letter: Vote for change

Sunday, October 19, 2014

It is not necessary for me to point out all the disasters this president and the Congress have caused by poor leadership, as everyone is well aware of them. Nov. 4 is a very important election. The welfare of America is at stake. I am not voting for …

Letter: The wrong pledge

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Recently, state Sen. Sam Cataldo of Farmington signed a “Pledge of Allegiance” to Americans for Prosperity, a Virginia-based, Koch brothers founded and funded, right-wing political advocacy group. This means that Cataldo now cannot vote for any bill, no matter how beneficial it would be for New Hampshire citizens, …

Sunday, October 19, 2014

As a resident of Bow and soon to be former state representative, I leave the State House with the comfort that Anne Baier is running to continue the great work of representing our voters. I have known Anne for close to 20 years, and in that time I …

Letter: Falling behind Massachusetts

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Whether you worry more about the environment or the economy, reducing fossil fuel use in New Hampshire matters a lot. It’s time to ask local political candidates what they plan to do about it. Most people recognize that fossil fuel use threatens to devastate our environment. But fossil …

Letter: A weary electorate

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Letter: War is progressive?

Sunday, October 19, 2014

When I read Ned Helms’s statement that Hillary Clinton “has solid credentials as a progressive” (Monitor Forum, Oct. 9), I had to wonder since when has supporting war been a progressive credential? The unprovoked 2003 invasion of Iraq by a coalition led by the United States is widely …
