Cabinet Letters

Endorsing Zaino & Vitulli

I am writing to endorse the two candidates with educational experience, Judi Zaino and Joseph Vitulli. As a practicing school psychologist, I am fully aware of how necessary it is to have educational leadership with actual experience and education in the field of education. We are living in ...

Seek Grella for Selectman

I am seeking a sixth term as Amherst Selectman. During these last fifteen years, I have been involved in numerous financial and personnel decisions with the Board on a variety of topics. It has been a truly rewarding experience to be a part of the political process. One of my most memorable ...

Vote for continuance

I ask for your vote to continue as a member of the Cemetery Trustees. During my eighteen years on the Board, I have worked to bring the land purchased on Merrimack Road to the point of use for a cemetery. A designer has mapped out the area and the main roads have been built. The plots will ...

Where is the humanity

Imagine this: It’s summer. It’s 100 degrees, and you can barely breathe. You’re coming out of the grocery store, and you see a dog’s face pressed against the inside of a car window, struggling to catch the next breath in a scorching car with the temperature of a furnace. If you have a ...

Vote yes for future of Amherst

The APPOINTED Planning Board in Amherst is NOT serving the best interests of the community. They are siding with developers, and we NEED CHANGE! The Integrated Innovative Housing Ordinance, crafted by several members of our current board, is a flawed, confusing and unnecessary ordinance that ...

Support Warrant Article 3

Please join me on Tuesday, March 10 in supporting Warrant Article 3 on Milford’s town ballot. The Wadleigh Memorial Library is an inclusive, welcoming HUB of the community that brings people of all ages together and offers engaging activities and needed services such as tax assistance, notary ...

Be a part of the solution

In a recent letter to the editor, State Rep. Fred Douchette, a Republican, scolded those who have vehemently criticized our current President Donald J. Trump. He instructed them to show respect for the Office of the President. I think Mr. Doucette has overlooked the fact that President ...

Defending the defenders

Five times in just the last month, sometimes in sub-zero temperatures, groups of environment-defenders have delayed delivery of 10,000 tons of coal shipped from West Virginia to the Merrimack Generation station in Bow. Protesters came from all over New England, representing groups such as ...

Can Bernie deliver?

Bernie Sanders is surging in Iowa and New Hampshire. His supporters are fervent, loyal and, more important, they believe a vote for Bernie is a vote for: Medicare for All, elimination of all student debt, the Green New Deal and everything else that Bernie rails for in his speeches. It’s ...

Why only two articles of impeachment?

It is my considered opinion that the House Democrats committed a strategic blunder in specifying only two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump. The apparent justification was to present that charges in as simple a manner as possible. But simple for whom? I would assert ...

Zaino running for school board

I would like to announce my intention to run for the Milford School Board. As a thirty year resident of Milford, I feel that I bring a level of experience, commitment and honesty that make me an excellent candidate for this position. I had two children who attended the Milford schools and ...

The Oath

The oath says “impartial justice” Senators must swear to this Not to shield little Augustus From him facing a blackened kiss A trial contains evidence, Witnesses and Document. To do less brings a consequence Electoral discontent. Republican conspirator We are watching what ...

Carbon fee and dividend is the answer

Worldwide, we have been seeing a climate-fueled crisis from the wildfires in Australia, extreme flooding in Indonesia and tornadoes in the Midwestern states. In order to combat this ongoing crisis, we need to employ the carbon fee and dividend plan. This is a bipartisan based plan where a fee ...

When other people’s money runs out

Supporters of (Bernie) Sanders, (Elizabeth) Warren and others who campaign on free health care, free college, guaranteed income and other nonsense should look at the situation in France. Years of promises of less work, guaranteed pension with early retirement and other perks enacted by prior ...

Bernie Sanders understands

Bernie Sanders believes health care is a human right, not a privilege. This is a corollary of The Declaration of Independence, since the human rights proclaimed therein (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) can’t be fully realized without a guarantee of health care. Why is Medicare ...

Warren not satisfied with crumbs

If the United States is such a great and wealthy country, why are so many Americans struggling to make ends meet? Why has our country not seen more progress in our social life? For decades, many politicians from both major parties have been telling us to be satisfied with the crumbs that fall ...

Vote for Bill Weld

As a registered independent in New Hampshire, I intend to pick up a Republican primary ballot and vote for Bill Weld for president. I encourage all independents and Republicans to do the same. I don’t agree with many of his policy positions, but he is at least intelligent, moderate, ...

Be a part of the solution

I offer no apology for what I am writing. If you disagree, or find my position offensive, I’m perfectly fine with that. We can agree to disagree. I have lived through numerous presidents in my lifetime. I have never seen a president scrutinized 24/7 over every word he speaks, facial ...

Thank you

Throughout 2019, the Milford Historical Society created an event for every Open House to celebrate the 40th anniversary of our move into the Carey House. None of the events would have been possible without the support of financial contributors, visitors who came to enjoy them or the donation ...

Climate change is here

Climate change is here, it is real, and it is the most urgent existential threat of our lifetime. Australia is on fire, temperatures and sea levels are rising faster than expected, and American policies are going backwards to benefit corporate interests. We don’t have time to embrace ...
