Law author refutes Sanborn’s claim

To the Editor: Normally I do not respond to letters to the editor; however, Sen. Andy Sanborn's letter in your publication on Oct. 21 was so patently false, I felt it was important to set the record straight. Sen. Sanborn wrote that he was "the creator of the NH Pay Equity ...

Choose candidate with qualifications

To the Editor: I am the son of a refugee. A German Jew, my father escaped at age 12 from Germany, on his own. In fact, the families of my wife and myself are all refugees within the last two generations. They were the lucky ones who escaped with their lives fleeing from tyrants, who used ...

Clinton anything but ‘nasty woman’

To the Editor: Trump called Hillary "a nasty woman" and by so doing may have put the finishing touch on his failing campaign. Of course, as many viewers have learned anew in recent weeks, she is not a nasty woman. His supporters may applaud this remark. There are so many ...

Pappas seeking re-election Nov. 8

To the Editor: In this divisive election season, it's easy to forget how much we can accomplish when we put our differences aside and work together. But that's exactly what we must do once the dust settles from this election. There's too much important work ahead of us to let politics get in ...

Showing support for Sanborn

Don’t let political parties divide us

To the Editor: This election season seems to have gone on forever and I am sure many if not all people are looking forward to the end of the campaigns, the end of TV advertisements and not receiving multiple telephone calls, surveys, and political postal mailings. The campaigns have also been ...

For Kelly Ayotte, politics seems to trump character

To the Editor: Can there possibly be a member of the U.S. Senate more lacking in leadership than Kelly Ayotte? Finally - after many months during which more than 120 Republican leaders have declared they will not vote for Donald Trump - Ms. Ayotte senses a shift in wind direction. Ayotte ...

Sanborn responds to Goldner letter

To the Editor: In response to a letter in your publication on Oct. 13, making the suggestion that I am not trying to protect woman's rights, Dr. Goldner's claim, which comes right off my opponent's Facebook page, is patently false and frankly insulting, so let's set the record straight. The ...

Pick the party or the person?

To the Editor: Much easier to follow party lines rather than examine individual candidates on either side. I confess to having made that mistake in the past. I followed the red party line two years ago and helped elect both Sen. Andy Sanborn and Rep. Bart Fromuth. Both are men of some ...

Taxes play a role in this election

To the Editor: Death and taxes are the two things of which we can be certain, according to Ben Franklin. Taxes came up again in Monday's (Sept. 26) debate between Clinton and Trump. Contrary to our 40-year tradition, Trump has not released his tax returns. However, the public records ...

Town should not ignore study

To the Editor: With respect to a proposed amendment to Bedford's zoning ordinance to permit gas stations along the Route 101 corridor, it would be highly unreasonable for the town of Bedford to turn its back on the significant investment of time, effort, money and public input that went into ...

Clinton has legacy of incompetence

To The Editor: For weeks after the Benghazi attack, Hillary Clinton lied to you and to bereaved families, claiming "it was a video" that sparked the slaughter of four Americans. She lied to our Congress and the FBI, swearing she "never sent or received classified ...
