Only the court system can clarify the county budget discussion

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Lewis Carroll to one side, it does seem strange that Rep. Huot puts such little faith in New Hampshire's court system, most especially since the learned gentleman is a retired judge. Could his reluctance stem from the confidence by the convention's attorney that the case for line item authority is pellucid? Could it be that this representative is not in fact representative of the ordinary people of Laconia but instead is a shill for the favored few?

Only Rep. Huot knows his motivation but there should be a concern on the part of everyone involved that it is good public policy to have the statutes under discussion be clarified; the only place that can be done is in our court system.

Rep. Dick Burchell
