Peter Bolster running as an independent candidate in District 8

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to call out the person or people who have stolen 15 signs for Peter Bolster's campaign for State Representative in Gilmanton, Barnstead and Alton. You are thieves and I hope this catches up with you. You obviously do not represent the majority of law-abiding, community minded members of these towns.

Peter Bolster is running as an independent candidate because he believes that the issues facing our state are not going to be solved by following party lines on either side. The past has proven that. We need people in our government who are willing to work together to make New Hampshire the best possible state it can be.

I don't believe people should vote on election day based on the names on the left or the right or who had the biggest lawn signs. I urge voters in every election to research each candidate and chose those who are going to work for you and our state.

Troubling that City Council trimmed LRPA-TV budget by $10,000

To The Daily Sun,

I am glad I was not the only community member concerned about the possible loss of the valuable service provided by Lakes Region Public Access TV on Channel 25.

No offense to print journalism in the area or WMUR-TV coverage, but all that reporting has to be edited due to time, space, and cost constraints. Lakes Region Public Access television offers the only truly unedited version of town meetings, convention and commission public hearings, sporting events, etc., where every grimace, sneer, smile, smirk and other body language nuance remains on tape unedited and available for the public to access by simple request in their studio adjacent to Laconia High School.

In these difficult times of political unrest I find it very troubling to think the City Council trimmed the budget appropriation for LRPA from $39,500 to $29,500 to reduce the increase in the property tax rate. In a city the size of Laconia with hundreds, maybe thousands of taxable properties, is $10,000 going to make a significant reduction in the property tax rate? Is it significant enough to outweigh the loss of a valuable and much needed public resource?

Meredith & Gilford will be well served by George Hurt in Concord

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to, once again, voice my support for George Hurt's election to the New Hampshire House of Representative.

I have known George, both personally and professionally, for many years and I know him to be a man of integrity and a man of his word. When George says that as a legislator he will "protect our freedoms, our money and the economic future of our families," we can count on him to do exactly that. George believes that you know better than the government, federal, state or local, how to spend your money, insure your family's health and educate your children.

As a Gilford representative in the late 1990s, George built a long record of insistence on fiscal responsibility, limited government, low taxation, individual liberty and personal responsibility. Government in this state has, in recent years, wandered far from these basic principles. History has shown us that Rep. George Hurt will work tirelessly to return New Hampshire to the business-friendly, family-friendly state that we once knew it to be.

The upcoming election is crucial at all levels of government. I urge all residents of Gilford and Meredith to get out on Nov. 4 and vote for George Hurt for state representative. You will be well served.

Lisa Scott is a true public servant; she will not let any of us down

To The Daily Sun,

Lisa M. Scott is far and away the best candidate for Register of Deeds in Carroll County. First, she is smart and extremely well organized, gets along well with people, and has energy, integrity and a strong work ethic.

I first met Lisa when she was the owner/manger of a small business, Wayside Farm, a plant nursery in North Sandwich. Diligent and knowledgeable, she was a pleasure to deal with and went out of her way to help her customers. All the while (1982-2014), she was a paralegal working for a law office during the week.

As a member of the Samuel H. Wentworth Library Board of Trustees, (unpaid) she worked closely with The Friends of the Library when I was its chairperson, communicating between the entities in a professional and collegial way.

My husband and I were so impressed by her integrity and intelligence that we have relied on her for several years for bookkeeping help and tax preparation. She has performed flawlessly, promptly and with total understanding of our needs.

Whether you are a Republican, Democrat or Independent, I urge you to vote for Lisa M. Scott, a true public servant. She will not let us down.

Andrew Hosmer works for solutions that are in all our best interests

To The Daily Sun,

Having spent most of my career working with elected officials, my voting decisions reflect these interactions. The skills to serve effectively in office go far beyond a candidate's political party, a single issue or a campaign slogan. A good elected official can be found in a person's willingness and ability to work with their peers, their constituents, their community and with other levels of government. An effective senator is a skilled leader and one who is willing to listen to all sides to develop compromises that address the problem at hand.

Working in the Statehouse has given me the opportunity to see Andrew Hosmer's work first-hand. The district voters were wise to trust their interests to Senator Hosmer. He is respected for his ability to forge compromises, his knowledge of the issues and his willingness to work with all members, regardless of party affiliation. Sen. Hosmer is able to develop solutions that consider the well-being of his constituents and the state as a whole.

Whether the issue is education, health care, business or the environment, he is prepared to work toward a solution that is in all of our best interests. It is my hope that the voters once again elect Sen. Hosmer as their senator. It benefits both the district and the state as a whole.
