Anyone still supporting this ManPig should look hard in the mirror

To The Daily Sun,

I'd like to congratulate Russ Wiles for graduating from the Bob Meade School of Fact Checking. Once again the TrumpEttes are spreading lie after lie. Hillary didn't laugh about the victim or the defendant. She only laughed at all when the interviewer talked about a blatant attempt of a prosecutor to hide and withhold evidence.

Now whether he was innocent or guilty, everyone in America deserves a fair trial using the rules of evidence — even Russ. That's in a document that Russ is always crowing about called the Constitution. Maybe he should read it.

Secondly, Russ once again deflects away from Trump's despicable actions and behaviors toward women and girls, as is now known. He has acted on his thoughts, but God forbid Russ would decry that. No, he brings up Bill Clinton's actions that were clearly detailed 17 years ago, as well as accusations and assumptions about the "Clinton Machine" that have yet to be proven.

Third, Russ says he'd like a woman president or a black president ... but only if they were Republicans. I highly doubt it. Based on his letters, I wonder if Russ has ever had an African-American colleague or friend, or else some of his teeth would have disappeared by now. His condescending attitudes toward women have already been well documented.

Finally, anyone who can continue to support this despicable and disgusting ManPig that the GOP has put forth should look hard at the mirror and determine what kind of person they really are. Because I can tell you one thing, you may be American but you aren't a patriot and your humanity is in question.

So while the rest of us watch your festering candidate implode and spread more vile spewings across the airwaves and media, perhaps you can do a little self examination and look for your humanity. Because after the election, your foot will be in your mouth and you might want to practice speaking with a bit of humility.

Preparation, ability to listen & compassion vital to making good policy

To The Daily Sun,

When working through the process of making good policy, one has to consider many aspects of the intended and unintended effects of said policy on all the potential persons or groups impacted by the proposed policy. To do this it is prudent to perform a number of tasks before and while in committee.

First is preparation, proposing and deliberating on such important issues requires a good command of the subject matter at hand. Historical practices and reasoning behind why current law is what it is today and the circumstances behind its initial inception help to inform future decisions and the crafting of well constructed legislation.

Second is the ability to listen to and absorb the comments and input from all members of your committee when discussing the merits of the proposed legislation. Important issues and viewpoints are raised during this discussion which often require the revision of proposed legislation to accommodate certain facts and information brought forth that should be included in or used to alter the original legislation to put forth a better bill for consideration by the full Legislature.

Last, the presence of compassion in your decision making process and understanding that the laws and policy you are promulgating are going to affect real people with real needs. Sometimes the process and procedures become fairly routine and somewhat mechanical masking this important point. Having a faith-based and moral foundation focused on people will always help you make the right decisions.

These three sets of qualities are what make both an effective and earnest legislator. I have learned this over the past two years after having worked on the House Education Committee with a man who exemplifies these qualities. His ability to work across party lines to create meaningful legislation is well known amongst both Republicans and Democrats in committee and the full house as well. That is why I am honored to support Glenn Cordelli in his bid for re-election. Moultonborough, Tuftonboro and Sandwich should be proud to have such representation in the state House.
