Maybe the antics of the senator from Nevada are being recalled?

To The Daily Sun,

My understanding of the Constitution, Article II - Section 2, says in part "and he shall nominate, and by the advice and consent of the Senate shall appoint ... judges of the Supreme Court ..."

Not being a lawyer, I find the discourse on this subject fascinating. It must take higher education
to know that the president has this power during his term of office although it does not seem to have happened yet.

Perhaps it is due to the advice of some senators of the majority party. Maybe recalling the antics of the senator from Nevada during his term from the other side of the aisle has delayed the nomination!
It is quite a conundrum at the very least. The outcome should be interesting.

I'm a candidate to represent Northfield on Winnisquam School Board

To The Daily Sun,

Congratulations to all who have submitted their names for consideration to all electable posts in our town and district. I wish you well in your pursuit of the office you desire. I encourage all eligible voters to ask questions of our candidates and thoroughly examining their positions on the issues that matter most to you and our town and district. Most importantly, get out and vote.

I also am a candidate this year to represent Northfield on the Winnisquam Regional School District School Board and I humbly ask for your vote. Since I arrived in Northfield I have volunteered on many boards and committees looking to make our town and district a better place to live. I have served on the Northfield Zoning Board for the past 11 years. I have also had the pleasure of serving on the School District Budget Committee for six years and have been the chairman as well as vice chairman in that time.

I currently serve on the Northfield Town Budget Committee and I am the president of the Northfield Economic Development Corporation.

After working well with the School District Budget Committee over the years I would like my focus to shift to more of policy setting than just a budgetary focus. I leave the Budget Committee in good hands as Nina Gardner, the remaining and new members will do another fine job in my absence. I believe my familiarity with the administration, my work with the Budget Committee and my common sense approach to the school board agenda makes me uniquely qualified for this position.

I look forward to talking with you about my positions on specific area in our school district. My direct email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and should you want to talk directly I will be more than happy to do that as well.

Thanks again for your consideration and I hope to see you at the polls.
