Cabinet Letters

N.H. families are ready

Decades. That’s how long New Hampshire’s mental health system has needed critical attention and investment. Civilly committed patients need to be removed from the secure psychiatric unit (SPU) located within the Men’s prison in Concord. Patients who need admission to the state’s acute ...

Journalism masquerade

Just when I think Trump can do no more for me, he surprises with another triumph. The latest is emphatically exposing the Main Stream Media (MSM) for breaking basic rules of bona fide journalism. They have committed figurative suicide, and by choosing to go all-in, they should pay the price for ...

Reinstate the funding

Democrats in the New Hampshire House of Representatives removed funding for the state Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and there’s simply no excuse for it. In response to the Governor Sununu’s proposed budget, the Democrat-led House Finance Committee vowed to remove all of the ...

Inspiring

Kids don’t vote, and they don’t donate to political candidates. In other words, they often don’t have a voice with elected officials. Fortunately, U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster understands the need to advocate on behalf of children. She spoke at Save the Children Action Network’s recent ...

Alcohol Awareness Month

April is Alcohol Awareness Month. As a member of our community, you understand the urgent need for addiction recovery solutions. New Hampshire’s lack of treatment funding, rural surroundings and high prescription rates contribute to make the drug and alcohol dependency in New Hampshire among ...

Apologize, governor

I take offense at the inaccuracy of statements made by Gov. Chris Sununu in last Saturday’s speech on the steps of MY house, the state capital. I am a New Hampshire resident, taxpayer and deserve to be heard. Regardless of party affiliation, you are the governor of ALL of New Hampshire and ...

Incurable cancers

The cancer problem was solved in 1931 when the Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine went to German Dr. Heinrich Warburg who had established that any cancer can be defeated by adding extra oxygen to the body. The state-of-the-art treatment these days is the hyperbaric chamber, available at ...

Divisive politics

I’m not sure why an op-ed by a guest writer from Canterbury/Loudon, which unfairly attacked a state representative from Concord, would appear in our local newspaper. I am referring to Jose Eduardo Cambrils’ written assault on Rep. Safiya Wazir in the April 4 edition of the Cabinet. I ...

Put a halt to the spending

The Democrats in the New Hampshire Legislature seem to have lost their minds. The sheer number of bills with enormous price tags have been passed by the Legislature is staggering. As it stands, spending for the 2020-21 budget would grow by $319 million. In the 2022-23 budget, spending would ...

Why reward illegals?

According to a March 22, 2019, article in The Telegraph concerning the recent NH House of Representatives vote on HB 397, 203 democrats and one republican voted to reward some 15,000 illegals in our state with State driver’s licenses. The rationale given by Rep Casey Conley (D-Dover) was that ...

Licenses for people here illegally

Has the lefts agenda dawned on you yet? First, they want to cripple law enforcement, not allow the state and local police to work with the feds regarding illegal immigration. Then they want to abolish ICE. They have pretty much lost the voter id argument, so now the latest ploy, let’s ...

Thank you

Thank you for voting me in as a Souhegan Cooperative School Board Member. I was drawn to run by interests in the continued success of Souhegan, students and our community. Thank you to those who helped me articulate my views. The number of friends and family that came out to support my ...

No more vaping

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is a justifiable amount of evidence to keep the youth of America away form vaping products. These products contain the highly addictive substance nicotine, which has been shown to harm the developing brain. As a college ...

How they voted

The following bills were voted to pass by Reps. Murray and Radhakrishnan and not to pass by Reps. Panasiti and Sanborn when present for the vote. SB 1 Establishing an income tax, HB 397 Making it easier for illegals to obtain a drivers license, HB 558 Banning plastic straws. HB 560 Banning ...

Wilton EOP or OMG?

The awkward behavior of the Wilton Select Board was again on display in The Cabinet’s coverage of the March 11 meeting. One of the evening’s topics was the emergency operations plan (EOP). This appears to be a rather unconventional document as noted in one section stating, “…Generally, ...

Preserve the N.H. advantage

New Hampshire Democrats, led by State Sen. Dan Feltes, are putting our state on the pathway to an income tax. They are pursuing an income tax by tucking it inside proposed paid family medical leave legislation, called Senate Bill 1. Put simply, their plan is an 0.5 percent income ...

Budget balances needs

Gov. Chris Sununu’s budget balances the need to solve existing problems and to responsibly manage taxpayer dollars. The most notable aspect of his budget is the overarching theme that one-time monies should only be used to pay for one-time expenses. Surplus funds are often seen as a green ...

An exciting year to come

Many thanks to The Cabinet for publishing our recent news update about 2019 events at the Milford Historical Society’s Carey House. We have great new leadership and an able assembly of enthusiastic volunteers. It’s already a promising year, our 40th anniversary year in Carey House, with so ...

Fisher announces candidacy

My fellow Americans, My name is Chris Fisher, and I intend to run for Congress in 2020. I am not a Republican. I am not a Democrat. Even if a political party chose to nominate me, I would reject the nomination. I am an American, and that is how I intend to run. I do not claim to represent a ...

Laura Taylor right for job

Please join me in voting for Laura Taylor as a Souhegan Cooperative High School Board Member. I have had the pleasure of knowing Laura for many years while being a long time resident of Amherst. She is a respectful, loyal, unbiased person who takes pride in being well informed of school ...
