Keep Governor Hassan

Bedford Letters

To the Editor: As leader of the State senate, Maggie worked with Governor Lynch to produce good legislation and stop much but not all of the crazy agenda of the Tea Party. Too many people stayed home for the 2010 off year election. Bad idea! Many extreme candidates did get in and passed their ...
