Cabinet Letters

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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Not so strong

Just a quick correction to your piece about legal marijuana. You stated that today’s pot is much stronger than before, and you quoted THC in the 90 percent range. This is not true, most marijuana is in the low teens to mid 20 percent range not 90 percent.

More transparency

We are lucky to live in a town where we are able to voice our opinion, and more importantly, vote on important issues in our town. I encourage all of you to vote on March 12. If you are a Milford resident, and are not registered to vote, I encourage you to register. It’s a privilege too many ...

Lyndeborough zoning changes

Article 2 (Question 1) merely replaces the existing zoning articles with the proposed articles with minor changes. For example, in section 408.00 it replaces the name USDA Soil Conservation Service with the new name of the agency being USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service. Article 3 ...

Let your voices be heard

On March 11, beginning at 5 p.m., New Hampshire House Finance Committee members will host a public hearing on the state’s biennium budget at the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley’s Amato Center. This is a great opportunity for you, as residents of southern New Hampshire, to share ...

A step in the right direction

On March 8, the New Hampshire House Commerce Committee votes on HB 560, a bill that goes a long way in addressing the wasteful proliferation of plastic bags in our state. New Hampshire is the only east coast state from Maine to Washington, D.C., that has not enacted a ban. Plastic shopping ...

Open letter to Erick Erickson

In 2016 you said you could not support Donald Trump because “I found him to be an amoral man and an unprincipled politician.” Now in 2019 you say you are “ready to vote for him in 2020. So what happened?” It appears to me that you are willing to trade principle for a better paycheck. ...

Get ready for more logging

Fourteen acres of forest at Milford’s Brox town land are about to be cut down to make way for future sand and gravel excavation. Logging is scheduled to start March 1. This 14 acre forest is east of homes on Ches Mae Lane, and just north of houses on Mason Road and the lovely Cold ...

Job well done

Kudos to Rep. Jeanine Notter for her stand supporting the right of folks to carry firearms in our state capital buildings. While it is acknowledged that armed guards are on the premises and do a fine job, it must also be acknowledged that numerous events, meetings, and hearings with hundreds, ...
