We should oppose the interference of religion into our politics

To The Daily Sun,

Daily supplications by and for politicians garnish our information sources. The insertion of religion into our government and policies by politicians and religious leaders has created a dangerous environment for our democracy. Wisdom from the past is still applicable today. I am reminded of these observations from history:

“Religion and government will both exist in greater purity the less they are mixed together.” — James Madison

“Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.” — Blaise Pascal

Acceptance of these concepts would enhance the potential for meaningful dialog concerning the progress of our democracy. We should oppose the interference of religion into our politics and defend the separation of church and state that our founders fought so hard to ensure. Failure to do so will just perpetuate the hatred and allows the dysfunction of America to continue.

Migliore will work full-time on behalf of Grafton District 9 voters

To The Daily Sun,

I am the former state representative for Grafton County, District 9 and I endorse the optimum candidate to keep a fiscally prudent voice for us in Concord. Voters in Alexandria, Ashland, Bridgewater, Bristol and Grafton should invest time on Tuesday, July 19 to cast a vote for Vincent Paul Migliore — with the strongest resume and knowledge on issues facing us.

There are other good candidates but this is about the next regular election, come 2018, when this should have been held. Mr. Migliore supported waiting and saving this unbudgeted expesne in every town — evidence of hisfiscal prudence. I've seen first-hand, having worked with him for years while he served on the Newfound School Board (10 years), with myself on the Budget Committee. I attest to his fairness when spending taxpayer dollars. He supports the 2nd Amendment and is an NRA member. With extensive inside knowledge of N.H. education and how decisions are made in the Legislature, he's best. Politically astute and hard working for his consitituents, he will continue to know that he's sold his business in Bristol, run with the wife of 39 years. He is able to and shall command respect of leadership in Concord our citizens here deserve. He will work full-time on our behalf and I urge a vote fo the one candidate who can win, and will work to do so in the general election, then again in November 2018 — which is really what this contest is all about.
