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 ...

America can do better than this

Cabinet Letters

On Tuesday, November 3rd I will be voting for Dr. Jo Jorgensen for President in 2020. I just cannot waste my precious vote on Biden or Trump. If we truly want change this time, then we need to vote for change. We need to stop voting for this broken two-party system that no longer works for ...

Not how it’s done

Cabinet Letters

Wednesday, Sept. 16 was the last day of the 2019-2020 New Hampshire House session as we met to consider the Governor’s vetoes at UNH’s Whittemore Center. We have been meeting there instead of the State House in order to maintain social distancing. I was disappointed that we were unable ...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be missed

Cabinet Editorials

The Notorious RBG, as some admirers referred to her, is gone. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday, at 87, of cancer. She was an icon to Americans with certain political positions — a scourge to others. Already, the battle over a successor has become heated, with ideology ...

House takes decorum seriously

Cabinet Letters

I would like to thank you once again for allowing the New Hampshire House of Representatives to use the Whittemore Center for the final sessions of the Legislature during the COVID-19 pandemic. Without your hospitality and the hard work of you and the staff at the University of New Hampshire we ...

Chandley: Working hard for N.H.

Cabinet Letters

As politically active newcomers to town four years ago, we felt Shannon was immediately responsive and approachable as a State Representative. As a resident of Amherst for over 20 years, Shannon truly cares about representing the best interests of our community and willingly invests the time ...

Drain the Swamp?

Cabinet Letters

Polls show Donald Trump and Joe Biden in a close battle for NH in the upcoming election. Four years ago, Trump’s rallies often had ‘Drain the Swamp!’ chants. How’s that working out? A few recent examples: Over $6M billed to the US Government by consultants to enhance the image and ...

The time is now!

Cabinet Letters

Turbulence in our economic, social, and environmental fabric is not new, but the current administration and Covid-19 have magnified the great divides of society in a very public and personal way. We must be able to make binding local governing decisions that protect the health and safety of all ...

A thank you to Nick Caggiano

Cabinet Letters

Nick, tell us it isn’t so! The Nashua Pickleball Club wishes you well. We will be some of the many who are sad to hear of your leaving Nashua Parks & Recreation. You have been our greatest friend and supporter for many years. Thank You. Nashua has turned out to be one of the best ...

Disappointed in Sununu

Cabinet Letters

Be aware that Chris Sununu’s record is neither moderate, as he claims, nor gender neutral. Some people seem inclined to re-elect Sununu based on his COVID-19 performance. Not me! As a female physician, I am extremely disappointed by his record, and note that it disproportionately burdens ...

Weird science: Things people are doing during COVID

Cabinet Editorials

Cabin fever is running rampant. Claustrophobia, panic attacks and manic behavior abounds. And that’s just when I’m taking a shower. People are waving their feral freak flags as we continue to cope with COVID-19. I cope by wearing a mask when I’m out. That way I can mutter dirty things ...

Congress must act fast

Cabinet Editorials

Debate over a new coronavirus relief package continues in Congress and at the White House. Disagreements are both legitimate and political, but one thing ought to be obvious to all involved: Millions of Americans will be in very real financial trouble if a deal is not achieved ...
