Cabinet Letters

To citizens of Milford

Regional approaches leverage resources. This strategy contributes to our “NH Advantage.” For that reason, I oppose the myopic organizational approach taken by our Board of Selectmen (BOS) in its proposed communications solution. Last week, I outlined my assessment of the process ...

To Milford taxpayers

Warrant Article 3 is yet another attempt to fritter away tax dollars on a scheme that promises to solve a problem of questionable origin. In a blatant attempt to slip this through, the board of selectmen has priced it to sell by voting to move $700,000.00 of our already collected tax dollars ...

Vote for Articles 24 and 25

I worked as Milford’s Planning Director and Community Development Director for 22 years. After so many years in the local political environment I am deeply concerned that the majority of the current Board of Selectmen do not support keeping pedestrians safe. This reaction is due to the ...

Send a message

For the third year in a row, a single town emergency dispatch center is being pushed on the voters at the “discount” price of $1.7 million. That figure omits $700,000.00 applied from this year’s fund balance to reduce the cost from $2.4 Million. This is $700,000.00 Milford taxpayers ...

It is time for Milford

The purpose of warrant article 3 on the Milford ballot is to authorize the creation of a new Milford-run Dispatch Center located in an addition to the Police Station that will replace our existing long-term contract with the MACC Base Dispatch Center located in the town hall. I urge you to ...

To the Citizens of Milford

As someone who spent approximately 15 years working with municipal and state public officials to coordinate regional approaches to emergency response needs, I decided to take the time to evaluate Milford’s regional dispatch discussions from 2017 forward. My experience includes coordination ...

Prioritizing reform

The 2020 presidential election revealed the many cruel and unnecessary barriers that far too many Americans still face in order to vote. From confusing voter registration instructions to long lines outside of too few polling places, there are still so many hurdles to participating in our ...

The truth

From a psychological aspect, individuals have the tendency to search for information that confirms to what they already believe and as a result, when it comes to discussing religion or, more specifically, politics, it is here that makes us especially bad at reasoning. If most of reasoning is ...

N.H. voter suppression

NH may have helped defeat Trump and return an all-Democratic Congressional delegation to Washington, but locally, Republicans won control of everything - NH House, Senate, Executive Council, and Governorship. Reflecting a distasteful national trend, NH Republicans are now hard at work to ...

Dear Gov. Sununu

First let me say that I have generally been favorably impressed with how you have handled the State of New Hampshire’s response to COVID. And I am not even a Republican. I hope knowing that will not prejudice your reading of this message. I am writing to let you know of my extreme ...

Vote your mind

They are sworn to be the voice of victims not of accused or the president’s!! A Juror’s Oath & Voice for the Victims You took an oath for unbiased listening Instead you ignore a deadly uprising Shame on you Senator Juror Shame on you for ignoring the horror. A mockery of our ...

Term limits

In his farewell address in 1796, George Washington called on the People, the true sovereign of the United States, to exercise “vigilance” of “the dangers of parties” and “the baneful effects of the spirit of party”. Though Washington’s letter is read each year on his birthday in ...

We need bipartisan action

Currently, the Democrats have control over Congress and the Presidential seat, which is great news for climate change laws. But if we are to get these laws to stick we need to use bipartisan action. A climate solution that has been supported by both sides in the past is the carbon fee and ...

Stop the state

Are our Republican state senators and state representatives so beholden to the extremist right wing that they would support legislation that will raise our property taxes and diminish our schools? Encouraged by our anti-public school NH Education Commissioner Edelblut, House Bill 20 (HB 20) ...

GOP is in a sad state

In my lifetime, I have seen the USA go from the greatest generation to one where the biggest liar can get elected president based on fear. He should be behind us now – forever – so we can let the good people of our nation can get back to improving the lives of all our ...

Thomas seeking office

My name is Wendy Thomas, and I am the Democratic candidate for Merrimack’s open New Hampshire House seat in the upcoming Special Election (April 13). Part of advocating for and representing a town is knowing how that town works – and I do more than any candidate in this race. My husband, ...

Keep the progress going

Turning 70 last month gives me a valuable vantage point from which to see the long game. To assess where we’ve come, where we are, and where we are going as a state Democratic Party. Over the past forty years, New Hampshire has transformed from a permanent rock solid Republican state in the ...

A historic age for climate justice

After Joe Biden was officially sworn in as America’s 46th President, he acted quickly to re-enter the nation into key legislation to fight climate change. This included the reentry of the United States into the Paris Climate Agreement and halting the construction of the Keystone XL oil ...

The problem, as I see it

The problem, as 51.3% of Americans see it, in response to Ms. Michelle Hoy’s Jan. 24 op-ed in The Sunday Telegraph. It is pretty obvious that you voted for, and continue to support the Liar-In-Chief Donald Trump, still believing his lies, and are now ticked and reacting because it didn’t ...

‘Right to Work’ right for N.H.

The Business and Industry Association, New Hampshire’s statewide chamber of commerce and leading business advocate, testified today before the Senate Commerce Committee in support of Senate Bill 61, a bill establishing New Hampshire as a “Right to Work” state, and making it the only ...
