Cabinet Letters

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 ...

Vote against Article 3

I am asking my fellow voters in Milford to vote against Town Warrant Article 3. For the past 35 years, Milford has been part of MACC Base. The towns that are part of this association up until recently have worked together for the common good to provide emergency dispatch services for their ...

The problem, as I see it

The problem as I see it right now is that close to 50% of Americans currently feel that those on the other side want to fundamentally change America. They want to change the way that our shared government is designed down to its foundation so that those on the other side can never have a voice ...

No cheating, please

After each ten year census, NH is “redistricted.” How can 400 representatives be shared with equal-sized groups? The NEW HAMPSHIRE Constitution requires one representative for every 3,290 citizens. It is supposed to be a fair, nonpartisan and transparent process. But in 2011, the ...

Adhere to the guidelines

Following is a letter I sent to Governor Sununu and I feel it needs attention. Why has NH completely removed Food Service Workers from the CDCs Phase 1 roll out recommendations when they are, short of dentists wearing full PPE, the only profession where workers are directly exposed to people ...

Take appropriate measures

I will always speak up and defend the free speech First Amendment rights of every member of the Nashua Board of Education, and the right of each to speak out and support a person they like for president. However, as publicly elected officials, who are in charge of the educational, social, and ...

You should be outraged

I can’t speak to the whole country, I can speak to the citizens of New Hampshire through you. I’m outraged that our congressional delegation, took a Covid 19 vaccination away from front line workers in NH. They took it away from doctors, nurses, hospital workers, EMS personnel, fire, ...

Take care of people

I wonder if those who voted for change are thinking the expenditure for this impeachment are wondering how much money from Taxpayers is this costing? I think of people I know who need their dollars for housing, food, medical care, childcare really care about impeaching a president who won’t ...

Every bit counts

Everybody knows someone who has been touched by this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. For those of us that can manage without government assistance, let’s work to lift up and support those in need in and around our Nashua community. If you can afford it, consider donating your stimulus ...

This is the time to do what is right

I believe most elected officials can share one moment that pushed them to take the step to get actively engaged in the community or run for office. For me, that moment was the 2017 Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, where neo-Nazis and white supremacists marched in broad daylight ...

The State v. the Commonwealth

Our family moved from Massachusetts to New Hampshire in 2014. My wife and I included the income tax savings (as remote employees for Massachusetts based companies) in our affordability calculations and settled in a beautiful community within the Boston MSA. We were far from the first ones to ...

Tremendous value

It has been an honor to serve on the Hillsborough UNH Cooperative Extension Advisory Committee. During our term we have been able to see firsthand the value that Extension gives to our community, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of the services they offer include: • A ...

A case against ‘cases’

The headlines scream: ‘More positive COVID cases!’, thus increasing fear, driving new lockdowns, and deepening depression. Case counts come from the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test. Are these counts accurate? The PCR test can only find tiniest virus bits. It multiplies these up to ...

Scouting for Food

As we approach Thanksgiving, nearly 3,000 scouts across New Hampshire recently participated in the Daniel Webster Council’s 33rd annual “Scouting for Food” event. In this very difficult year when the COVID pandemic has created unique challenges for all of us, it is more important than ...

Elections were fair and free

On Nov. 3, I was honored to be one of more than a hundred volunteers working at my town’s polling place. I was registering voters – those new to voting, and those new to the town. I served citizens who were Republican, Independent, Libertarian, Democrat and Undeclared. All approached the ...

Sununu disappoints on COVID

On Friday the 13th we learned that yesterday NH had a record 323 new COVID-19 cases. Surely we will see new records every day. Yesterday saw 4 new hospitalizations, 3 deaths and a record 2,538 active cases. No mask mandate from the Governor. And now reduced contact tracing! Governor Sununu ...
