Letter: Weir for road agent

Monday, March 2, 2015

When I first started exploring a run for road agent, I looked at Chichester’s history. I come from a very large family, deeply rooted and dedicated to Chichester: Twenty-five years of service on the board of selectmen, nine of which included two family members serving simultaneously. Twenty-six years of service as road agent, 15 of which were served under the supervision of a family member on the board of selectmen. …

Letter: Lux for selectman

Monday, March 2, 2015

I have lived in Hopkinton almost my entire life. I grew up in this beautiful community, graduated from Hopkinton High School, volunteered countless hours on numerous boards and committees, and recently purchased my first home here. I want to start my family here and send my children to our incredible schools. Hopkinton is where I plan to stay. That is why I am …

Letter: Bosiak for selectman

Monday, March 2, 2015

Both Betsy Bosiak and Don Harty might be capable of serving on Epsom’s board of selectmen. Of the two, I believe Bosiak is more qualified. A lifelong, active resident of Epsom, she is well versed on our area’s history thus the “backstory” of buildings, easements, grants, businesses, warrant articles, agreements between Epsom and other towns during emergencies, etc. In the three-year term she …

Letter: Support the library

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Some argue that the Gilmanton Year-Round Library is a private organization, not deserving of public support. Fact: The GYRL is a nonprofit organization, organized under state law as a public charity and as such granted tax exempt status under the federal tax code. It is bound, under the …

Letter: Weir for selectman

Monday, February 23, 2015

I’m Jason Weir, and I’m a candidate for selectman in Chichester. Many would call me a conservative, socially and fiscally. I believe in honesty, integrity and standing by my word. I would expect the same of all town employees. I’ve spent 10 years on the budget committee, working …

Letter: Vote for Ted and Tom

Monday, February 23, 2015

Dear Dunbarton citizens: In a few weeks, you will have a very important decision to make when you are asked to vote for two selectmen. One is for a one-year term, to replace a selectman who resigned, and the other is for a three-year term. I hope you …

Letter: Kiniry for selectman

Being New Hampshire natives, my wife, Tammy, and I moved here to raise our children in the Bow school system. I served in the Army in support of Operation Desert Storm, attended Keene State College and the University of Connecticut School of Law. Lately, in reference to “a …

Letter: Common ground on guns

Monday, February 23, 2015

In my two years in the New Hampshire House, I’ve seen polarization on many issues. One that continues to cause deep division is guns. I surmise that everyone is fearful of that proverbial “slippery slope,” and that makes us resist allowing ourselves to even contemplate reasonable common ground. …

Letter: Difficult lessons

Monday, February 23, 2015

I am saddened and disappointed to hear of the death of 32-year-old hiker Kate Matrosova in the Presidentials. My thoughts are with her loved ones. As a 34-year-old who was also hiking Feb. 15, as it was cold and windy at Cannon, this hits home. My hope is …

Letter: Don’t ban body armor

Monday, February 23, 2015

H.R. 378, the Responsible Body Armor Protection Act, is in the House Judiciary Committee and Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations subcommittee. Congresswoman Annie Kuster stated the bill is to prohibit any U.S. citizen from possessing military-grade body armor to “prevent criminals from using body armor in firearm …

Letter: Truly equal protection

Monday, February 23, 2015

Urge Congress to pass the Employment Nondiscrimination Act. The year may be 2015 but you can still get fired for being LGBT; this is a concern to many people. Job retention should be based solely on your performance, not who you are, who you love or what gender …

Letter: Duplication of efforts

Monday, February 23, 2015

Just when we thought we had too many managers in New Hampshire state government, the governor now wants a new position created: It’s called chief operating officer! I thought that was the governor’s job? Where will she get the money to compensate this proposed new state employee, only …
