Letter: Defective parking meters

07-24-2024 2:59 PM

Recently I went into downtown Concord to pick up a food order from a restaurant on Main Street. When I followed the instructions on the meter and inserted a quarter, nothing happened. I figured I wasn’t going to be long, left the car, and took my...

Letter: Colin Van Ostern’s misleading ad

07-24-2024 2:59 PM

In Colin Van Ostern’s first TV ad, the logos of several reproductive rights organizations appear on the screen, leaving viewers the mistaken impression that these organizations are now endorsing Van Ostern. This is incorrect and misleading. As...

Letter: Republican unity?

07-24-2024 2:59 PM

Well, the Republican convention is over, and the theme that they came up with was “unity.” Really? They advocate for mass deportation of Brown and Black people, vow to persecute their political rivals, and have already begun the process of taking away...

Opinion: Turn down the heat on immigrants

07-24-2024 6:00 AM


Nancy Martland lives in Sugar Hill. Like you, unless you are of Native American background, I come from immigrant stock. Even if you have lived your whole life in the North Country, you are descended from immigrants. Your family is here because...

Letter: Project 2025 boogeyman

07-23-2024 2:43 PM

Every Monday morning I read my Concord Monitor and wonder what bad take Jonathan Baird will have this week. Reading his column on Project 2025 didn’t disappoint. If you have been online or read the Concord Monitor you have probably heard of Project...

Letter: A successful actor

07-23-2024 2:43 PM

Project 2025 is a 900-page document that can be defined as the 2024 Republican Party platform. A platform, of course, defines that party’s plans for the future of government in the U.S. And those plans, in turn, depend on the party’s success in the...

Letter: Land protection by the state of NH, or lack thereof

07-22-2024 3:25 PM

I once went to a lecture on land protection where the speaker said that land trust officials know better than donors which land deserves protection, so there may be a lot of land swaps to consolidate holdings and acquire habitat. The piece of land...

Letter: Kudos, Joe

07-22-2024 3:25 PM

Joe Biden’s decision not to run in the 2024 presidential election tells you all you need to know about his character. He is willing to put country above self. His act of sacrifice will ensure his legacy as a true patriot. Joe has been a public servant...

I hope the Democrats can find a way to avoid four more weeks of embarrassing infighting and intrigue. They must unite behind Harris ASAP and get busy defeating Trump and his Project 2025.Fred PortnoyCanterbury

Letter: What have you done, Gov. Sununu?

07-22-2024 3:25 PM

Why? What repressive cruelty is next? I am appalled by allowing laws against transgender youth to pass. Are you angling for a cabinet post in the potential government of a presidential hopeful? This has deeply wounded a minority group in your...

Letter: Colin Van Ostern, our champion for choice

07-22-2024 3:25 PM

The stakes for reproductive rights couldn’t be higher this fall, and I’m so grateful Colin Van Ostern is running to follow Congresswoman Annie Kuster in Congress. Colin is the champion for choice New Hampshire needs and deserves in the U.S. Congress....

Letter: Current use tax is fair

07-22-2024 3:25 PM

There is little to support the arguments of several recent letters to the Monitor suggesting that the current use tax is an unfair, unfunded state mandate. In response to sprawling development and the loss of agricultural and forest land in 1968 the...

Letter: Donald Trump a Christian?

07-22-2024 3:25 PM

While riding home from church, NPR was discussing Donald Trump. Apparently Christian groups, including evangelicals, hold Trump as a leader for their causes. There was praise for him and, apparently, they ignore his many religious failures. Do...
