Letter: Feltes has what it takes

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Living in the Merrimack Valley School District, I seldom pay attention to Concord School District issues. The work of lawyers at New Hampshire Legal Assistance isn’t something that I have any knowledge of. So both Kass Ardinger and Dan Feltes were unknown to me until they started arriving in my mailbox. Two good-looking Democrats with all the right bullet points and plenty of supporters to tout. How am I going … 0

Letter: Ardinger has the experience

Sunday, August 31, 2014

In choosing the best candidate for state Senate in District 15, a past history of representative success is an important consideration. Others led the way with years of elected experience before running for the state Senate. Sylvia Larsen, eight years on the Concord City Council, and Susan McLane, 12 years as a state representative, both served many years before becoming a state senator … 0

Letter: Ardinger is dedicated

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Kass Ardinger is a public servant who has worked for our community in a variety of ways for more than 20 years, at no pay, with one goal in mind: to make a positive difference for the individuals and families who live here. Her opponent is now attacking her for a decision regarding full-day kindergarten that he has misrepresented every step of the … 0

Letter: Behind the destruction

Letter: Rubens is a real Republican

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Some people seem to think that we should drop our standards at the drop of a hat. They believe that the Republican control of the U.S. Senate in 2014 is so crucial that we should back candidates who are barely Republican (Scott Brown). Is it any wonder that … 0

Letter: Lambert wrong about Garcia

Sunday, August 24, 2014

I am a board member of an organization that fosters productive dialogue on immigration, and promotes pragmatic and realistic solutions to immigration issues. Congressional candidate Marilinda Garcia has also served on our board. I immigrated to America in 1979; President Ronald Reagan wrote to me with a personal … 0

Letter: Adams for Executive Council

Sunday, August 24, 2014

With competitive primaries across the board, it can be really easy to forget about some of the less talked about, but incredibly important, positions in state government. One such position is that of Executive Councilor. As you may know, New Hampshire is rather unique in that we elect … 0

Letter: Boutin is a trusted voice

Sunday, August 24, 2014

This Sept. 9, I am proudly throwing my support behind state Sen. David Boutin in the District 16 Republican Primary. Boutin has proven to be the trusted conservative voice and strong advocate for his district that we need for the greater Manchester area. He has always fought to … 0

Letter: Crime against Market Basket

Sunday, August 24, 2014

The Supreme Court of the United States declares very clearly that corporations are persons, and what the Supreme Court says is the law of the land until reversed by subsequent Supreme Court decision, legislation or constitutional amendment. That said, at the beginning of this summer Market Basket was … 1

Letter: Slaves to the prison system

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Most people are under the mistaken belief that slavery was outlawed in the 1860s, but the 13th Amendment specifically allows such involuntary servitude “as punishment for crime.” Our ironically named “corrections” system embraces enslavement – certainly not to the extent of an antebellum plantation, but the slave-master mentality … 0

Letter: Epidemic of bad behavior

Sunday, August 24, 2014

What is going on in Ferguson, Mo., is a national disgrace. It is a true example of ignorance and bigotry. An incident that should be investigated, as any other, has now been turned into a racial circus. Ignorant opportunists reacted by looting businesses. The media creates escalating excitement … 1

Letter: Lesson from Epicurus

Sunday, August 24, 2014

A wealthy Greek American visits Greece on a holiday and comes upon an old man sitting under a tree lazily sipping ouzo watching the sunset. He notices fields of untended lush olive trees on the hill behind the man and asks, “Who do these trees belong to?” “They’re … 0

Letter: The truth about Annie

Sunday, August 24, 2014

I’m not certain what is prompting letters to the editor stating that Annie Kuster doesn’t connect with constituents, but nothing could be further from the truth. She regularly holds telephone town halls and hosts roundtable discussions with veterans, seniors and students. The “tele-town halls” can reach more than … 1

Letter: Firefighters for Feltes

Sunday, August 24, 2014

As firefighters and paramedics, we are charged to respond and protect the citizens, workers and visitors in Concord. We do this 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We see each and every part of our city at all hours of the day and night. And when … 1
