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 … 0

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 … 0

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 … 0

Letter: It’s no fun for the pigs

Saturday, August 30, 2014

I am writing concerning the picture appearing in the Aug. 12 issue of the Monitor depicting the “pig rassle” event in Stephensville, Wisc. This form of entertainment may have been fun for the human spectators, but it is torture and stressful for the pigs forced to participate, even … 8

Letter: Feltes is stronger candidate

Friday, August 29, 2014

I am pleased to support Dan Feltes in his race for the New Hampshire Senate. Early in the campaign, Dan sought me out to ask for my vote. We met for an hour to discuss the issues. I intentionally asked some provocative questions knowing that the Senate can … 0

Letter: Ardinger ready to serve

Friday, August 29, 2014

Does eight years of experience as a paid advocate for special interests of individuals and groups and eight weeks of accepting contributions from special interest groups really prepare one to represent all of the people in District 15? Iffy. For certain is Kass Ardinger’s strong, thoughtful and passionate … 0

Letter: ‘Monitor’ needs to offer clarity on state of housing

Friday, August 29, 2014

The Monitor’s editorial on the Vegas Block (Monitor Opinion, Aug. 15) is so muddled that it gives us little solid idea of whether its conclusion is correct or not. We are told that housing downtown is skewed toward low-income housing because 267 units are subsidized in one fashion … 2

Dear fellow District 15 voters: As the Sept. 9 Democratic primary election for District 15 state Senate draws near, I would like to share with you my reasons for supporting Kass Ardinger. I have known Kass both professionally and personally for the past 20 years. As a 30-year … 0

Letter: Blatant sexism

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I am annoyed by the sexism immediately displayed in your front-page political coverage of Sunday, Aug. 17. To wit: “State Senate candidate Kass Ardinger stood . . . in her tan skirt and neon blue-and-green walking sneakers.” “As Joanne Keough stood . . . State Senate candidate Dan … 5

Letter: Feltes campaign manager wrong about Ardinger

Thursday, August 28, 2014

State Senate candidate Dan Feltes’s campaign manager, Karen McNamara, apparently did not fully understand (Monitor letters, Aug. 22) the well-written explanation by Concord School Board President Clint Cogswell of the board’s 2009 decision concerning sizing of the new schools (Monitor Forum, Aug. 21). Demographic changes and declining enrollments, … 0

Letter: Feltes conscientious, capable

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I encourage residents of Concord, Hopkinton, Henniker and Warner to vote for Dan Feltes for Senate on Sept. 9. I have worked with Dan and know him to be a conscientious and capable advocate, helping others achieve the fairness and justice we all deserve. Dan’s work with low-income … 0

Letter: Not fair to veterans

Thursday, August 28, 2014

In 2012, the state Legislature passed legislation allowing veterans to have their veterans status indicated on their driver’s license, thus providing us with a photo ID proving our service to our country. A veterans photo ID is something that major stores always require before they will provide a … 4

Letter: Real bigotry

Thursday, August 28, 2014

The PC police have outdone themselves with the false Redskins outrage. It is a term made by its own people. They knew nothing of European explorers trying to find India, hence the name Indian. They called themselves Red Men or Red Skins in contrast to white men only, … 2
