A vote for Hillary is a vote for Main Street & the middle class

To The Daily Sun,

While this country is still struggling to overcome the worst economic decline it has seen since the Great Depression, we once again find ourselves at the crossroads of choosing our next Commander in Chief.

We cannot allow our country to turn its back on the progress we have made. Some will argue that there has been no progress. I, myself, think we should not take a chance at reverting back to a time, not so far in our past, in which unemployment was skyrocketing, and our economy was in a freefall. We must continue moving forward and acknowledge how far we have come.

It appears as though we will have many options. I think there is a clear choice. Not only does this individual come from a middle-class family, this individual has a proven record in helping small business and the families that own and run those businesses. When I think of the individual who I want as my president, I think of someone who could be as great of a leader and as much of an inspiration as my mother, a person that worked two jobs to sustain her family, raised three kids and still found time to help us with our homework. I cannot think of a more deserving, committed, and capable person, than Hillary Clinton.

She wants to be our leader because she sincerely wants to help small businesses succeed. Hillary wants to make it easier for entrepreneurs to start and run their own businesses. She believes we need to cut red tape and simplify the tax regulations as they relate to small business. She wants to make it easier for the American business owner, so he can get down to business. In today's globalized economy, Hillary wants to ensure that our New Hampshire small business owners are profiting from foreign trade, and not being marginalized at the expense of foreign corporations.

In the Senate, Hillary had a track record of working across the aisle to accomplish everything from helping to improve our educational system, to further protecting our environment. She also worked arduously on a subject that I am truly passionate about, human rights. Hillary has fought and will continue to fight for women's rights across the globe, by battling the human trafficking epidemic that many in our world have turned a blind eye to.

We need someone who has a diverse and tested record of fighting to make the world a better place. We need someone that will be respected on the global stage. We need an individual that will stand up for the United States and its citizens when the world is in turmoil. We need someone that will simultaneously fight for our freedom abroad while also fighting for the dignity of those who have no champion.

I ask every person to vote for Hillary Clinton. A vote for Hillary is a vote for Main Street. A vote for Hillary is a vote for the middle class. A vote for Hillary is a vote for small business. A vote for Hillary is a vote for America.

Don't waste an opportunity to be part of something truly great.

Perhaps we do need 5 selectmen in Sanbornton after all

To The Daily Sun,

Perhaps we made a mistake when we voted not to have five selectmen rather than three in Sanbornton . It seems that every time an issue is raised with the selectmen they form a committee to investigate and recommend some sort of action, if any.

The latest committee to be formed is the Economic Development Advisory Committee, which reportedly will have 17 members appointed by someone other than the BOS. Perhaps one day the BOS will announce who the members are?

Unfortunately, some committees start up full speed and then just come to a halt and never issue a final recommendation for one reason or another.

I think we need less committees and more timely decisions by our Board of Selectmen. Perhaps two more selectmen could have helped to deal with the many issues that the selectmen are asked to deal with each week! I guess next year we will have to look at the possible future need for more selectmen again.
