I look forward to being strong advocate for all citizens of Senate 7

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to say thank you to the voters of District 7 for re-electing me to the New Hampshire State Senate on Nov. 4. It's my honor and privilege to serve, and your support is humbling.

I also want to congratulate Kathy Rago for her efforts in the campaign. Campaigns (and recounts) are challenging and demand a great deal of time away from work and family. I have a great deal of respect for the time and effort she and her family put into her campaign.

I look forward to serving the next two years and being a strong advocate for all the citizens I represent. I also look forward to putting the campaign season behind us and working with Republicans, Democrats and Independents in addressing the challenges facing New Hampshire.

Again thank you and please feel free to contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

American voters just too dumb to what is good for them

To The Daily Sun,

Good grief, James Veverka now claims our Constitution is not based on Christian values. Guess James never heard of the Ten Commandments. Well, no sense arguing with James it's like debating a flat earther. On to other things.
Now I know that none of the frequent left-wing writers have seen and heard the tape of Prof. Gerber, who is one of the authors of the ObamaCare, telling an academic group of egg heads how cleverly he and the rest of the progressives lied, distorted and misled the American people (voters) in order to get them to pass the ACA. He states clearly that American voters are just to dumb to know what's good for them so they need to be lied to. I hope all those left wing writers who supported these lairs and frauds are ready to apologize to we conservatives who told you so. No? Well guess Prof Gerber was right.

This news was broken on Fox News yesterday but the only other news source, CNN gave it four minutes on the early morning show the rest were all silent. (It's called a lie of omission folks.) See what comes of not going to Fox News, you miss really important information. Oh, what was that you were saying Bernadette about Republicans again?

We had lots of help with the eighth annual BHS Holiday Fair

To The Daily Sun,

The eighth annual Holiday Fair at Belmont High School (BHS) was another great success for the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). Accordingly, we would like to thank all of the 100-plus crafters and vendors who participated in the fair, many of whom have been returning year after year to support our event.

We would also like to thank Mix 94.1, WLNH (98.3), and MetroCast for their support in our promotional efforts. We had almost 2,500 shoppers in attendance. There were several local businesses that also supported the fair, including The Works Bakery Cafe, Brookside Pizza, Sal's Pizza, Hannaford, Shaw's, Coca-Cola, Tilton Diner, Kitchen Cravings, Pirates Cove, The 99 Restaurant, Fox Country Smokehouse, Contigiani Catering, and Uno's.

The Holiday Fair means a lot to us as students. It provides many opportunities for us to apply our business skills and knowledge to a real project working with the community, which we enjoy very much. Proceeds from the fair help us to attend NH-FBLA conferences and competitions throughout the year.

Finally, and of equal importance to us, the fair allows us to support local charities that help other students and families in need during the holiday season.

There are many more people that we owe our thanks and appreciation to for the support we have received, so please know that we appreciate all that people have done for us. Congratulations to Kristin Smith, winner of the $50 drawing, and Eileen Story, winner of the free vendor spot for next fall's fair. Best wishes to everyone for a safe and happy holiday season, and we will hope to see you for our ninth year on Nov. 7, 2015.

Join the 'rebellion' to return our government to the people

To The Daily Sun,

Right after the recent election, Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell said, "We (the senate) haven't seen an energy bill in seven years."

Where has he been? Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Rob Portman (R-OH) drafted an energy efficiency bill co-sponsored by Senator Ayotte which was designed to help businesses and governments cut energy costs through increased efficiency. Opponents succeeded in killing the bill!

Senator McConnell also claimed there is widespread opposition to the EPA rule to reduce carbon pollution from power plants. The fact is, there's widespread SUPPORT. Seventy-percent of Americans support the Clean Power Plan, and exit polling showed that 6 in 10 voters believe climate change is an important issue.

So McConnell can grandstand on pollution all he wants, but he's just blowing smoke. The American people want action on climate change, not more obstruction from deniers in Congress. Blocking climate action and public health protections don't make sense to anyone except to the Big Oil Funders of so many of our Congress members' election campaigns. This is one of the many outcomes of our "whatever big money can buy" corrupt system of campaign financing. When will we get a handle on this system?

If Laconia Daily Sun readers are interested in speaking up against the corruption of big money in politics, the force that creates this kind of irresponsible denial and lack of action in Washington, I suggest that they look into a N.H. grassroots organization dedicated to campaign finance reform. Join the effort to return our government to the people: It's The N.H. Rebellion at www.nhrebellion.org.
