Vote Chandley

Merrimack Letters

As a Merrimack resident for 28 years, I have seen a number of state senators represent Merrimack. I have never seen a State Senator that has worked across the aisle to get solutions passed like Senator Chandley has with the tolls. For over 30 years, Merrimack residents have been overburdened ...

Punishment should be severe

Cabinet Editorials

If the authorities are correct in their allegations against a group accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the 13 men ought to be viewed with a mixture of horror and disgust. Real Americans do not attempt to change either society or government by force. Those who do so, ...

Sununu: The Wizard of Oz

Cabinet Letters

For many voters, including some Independents and even Democrats, Chris Sununu may appear to be competent and moderate. Many hours of television coverage during this pandemic have given the governor plenty of opportunities to project this illusion. Yet, when we think more deeply about our ...

Support Chandley

Cabinet Letters

I have had the pleasure of working with Senator Shannon Chandley in the NH Legislature where we both served as State Representatives from 2016-2018 and most recently where she has served as Senator for our Milford community since 2018. Soaring Milford property taxes have been a major challenge ...

To the voters of Milford

Cabinet Letters

I always encourage voters to learn about candidates before voting. I am writing today to help you learn more about Vanessa Sheehan who is running for State Representative in Milford. Something you may already know about Vanessa is that she is a third generation resident of Milford. She and ...

MFF would like to thank the community for coming out and supporting our fall yard sale fundraiser for the Merrimack Friends & Families Charitable Fund. This fundraiser is one of the many events that we hold over the club year to raise monies. At this event, we were able to raise over ...

A well-rounded education

Cabinet Letters

Nashua North High School this past February hosted Governor Sununu and Kati Preston, Kati a Holocaust Survivor gave a powerful presentation on the importance of not forgetting the horrific atrocities of the Holocaust. “Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their ...

Support Rosemarie Rung

Cabinet Letters

I am writing to support Rosemarie Rung for a second term as Merrimack State Representative. Rosemarie has been a great Representative for Merrimack; championing clean water, toll removal and more state aid for our town. When Rosemarie speaks at Town Council meetings, it is apparent that she ...

Punish those who harm law enforcement

Cabinet Editorials

By the end of September 2019, 30 U.S. law enforcement personnel had been killed while on duty. Thirty-seven have been killed this year. Non-fatal injuries have soared, too. It is not being inaccurate to note that many, probably most, police officers, sheriff’s deputies and other law ...

Chandley and independent redistricting

Cabinet Letters

This year’s elections are especially critical because whichever party takes the majority will be responsible for redistricting, or redrawing our legislative districts for the next 10 years. In 2010, Republicans used redistricting to bake in an advantage for their party, shifting the balance ...

Republican dirty tricks

Cabinet Letters

Republicans at the national level are well known for their dirty tricks over the years. At the local level, NH Republicans are also following suit. As an undeclared voter, I receive a lot of mail from both sides. The Republicans seem to take liberties with the truth. Jeb Bradley tells me ...

Vote for Shannon Chandley

Cabinet Letters

I have known Shannon for over 20 years, as our kids have gone to the same Amherst schools. I have not only been thrilled with her actions in the community as a State Representative and a State Senator for Amherst, Merrimack, Milford and Wilton, but also with her actions as a person - Shannon ...

Elect Corky Messner

Cabinet Letters

As we face this pandemic and the economic challenges that follow, we need someone like Corky Messner in the US Senate, someone who understands what must be done to get our nation back on track. He has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, and will support the policies needed to restore the ...

Veto Sununu

Cabinet Letters

If, in 2018, you voted blue to flip the NH legislature, you likely had expectations that the Democratic majority would enact legislation benefitting all NH citizens which reflected your viewpoint. And, indeed, they attempted to do just that: bills meant to reduce your property taxes, to ...

Selective information

Cabinet Letters

For more than 10 years, I have argued and testified for legislation less costly for a citizen to go to court. In civil cases, you can’t get legal assistance help unless a lawyer which Mr. Feltes admits he is giving free service. In the past four years, Senator Giuda and others have ...

Take voter intent into account

Cabinet Editorials

There is one safe bet regarding the upcoming presidential election: If vote totals in any of the states are close, there will be controversy over how ballots were handled. That will be so whether President Donald Trump or Joe Biden appears to have the edge. Ballot battles are nothing new, of ...

Support Sen. Chandley

Cabinet Letters

Serving your community through voluntary service or elected office requires a wider perspective of the needs, concerns and views of your neighbors and constituents than can be obtained through local papers and the media. It requires a willingness to commit time, energy, patience, and resources, ...

Biden and universal health care

Bedford Letters

I have cancer. For insurance purposes, it is a pre-existing condition. Under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) I cannot be denied insurance because of my cancer. The Republicans in the Senate have tried to repeal the ACA, and Republican State Attorneys General have challenged its ...

Messner, Negron do it right

Cabinet Letters

I am writing in support of candidates Corky Messner and Steve Negron for U.S. Senate and Congress, District 2. I believe they are a great fit for the values of the citizens of our state and its historical bent of independence and conservatism. The two Democrats they are vying to replace I ...

Do your research, vote Feltes

Cabinet Letters

Democrats and undeclared voters, are you thinking of voting for Chris Sununu for governor? • Do you care about raising the minimum wage? At $7.25 NH has by far the lowest minimum wage in New England. The 2019-2020 NH Legislature twice voted to increase the wage. Sununu vetoed both ...
