Adding a bathroom doesn't change the totals of waste & water

To The Daily Sun,

After reading the the article in The Sun about the dispute in Gilmanton over the code regarding adding a bathroom to an existing home, I came to the conclusion that it's time to send their "land use technician" back to school.

Septic systems are designed according to the amount of bedrooms in a home as that determines the amount of people who will reside in that home. Adding a bathroom doesn't change the picture in any way as you still have the same amount of water and waste going into it due to fact that a person can't be in two places at the same time (I wish it was possible).

If you put an addition on your home that increases the number of bedrooms then you need a septic evaluation done to determine if it is capable of handling the increase in the amount of water and waste that goes into (the septic system) due to the increase in the amount of people residing there. Selectman Michael Jean was correct in his interpretation of the code.

I encourage fellow veterans to look at Kelly Ayotte's stellar record

To The Daily Sun,

I am a strong supporter of Kelly Ayotte for many reasons, but I think the No. 1 reason why is because of all the great things she does for veterans. I am a veteran of Vietnam and it is important to me that our elected officials honor the commitments they made to us and stick up for us in Washington.

Kelly has done that time and time again. She was the one that led the charge against unfair cuts to our benefits and has been a leader in making sure the VA answers for the wait-list scandal.

I would encourage my fellow veterans to look at Kelly's stellar record on veterans issues and support her this November.
