If these allegations are accurate, Rep. Fisher needs to resign now

To The Daily Sun,

Belknap County Democrats are disturbed by the recent allegations of questionable behavior by state Rep. Robert Fisher (R-Belmont, Laconia). The alleged link of Rep. Fisher to the online forum The Red Pill does not represent actions or opinions appropriate for our elected officials, and neither his values nor his beliefs are representative of the citizens in Belmont and Laconia.

If these allegations are proven to be accurate, Belknap County Democrats join with the New Hampshire Democratic Party and N.H. Young Democrats in asking for Rep. Fisher's resignation.

A special election should be held subsequently to replace him. Rep. Fisher's constituents should not have to wait until the election of 2018 to weigh in, as suggested by the Speaker of the House. Action needs to be taken now!

CASA volunteers want to help an abused or neglected child

To The Daily Sun,
In honor of April being National Child Abuse Prevention month and it being Volunteer Appreciation Week, I would like to acknowledge the everyday superheroes that are making a meaningful and important difference to abused and neglected children in Carroll and Belknap counties. Due to the strict confidentiality of juvenile abuse/neglect cases, these impressive volunteers can not share the heartbreaking stories, nor can they tell you about the happy-endings that they helped create. Their incredible efforts and tireless work often goes generally unrecognized.

These volunteers come from various backgrounds, but one thing they have in common is they came to CASA of N.H. because they wanted to use their skills and experiences to give back and to help an abused or neglected child in their community. The CASA volunteers are showing these children that there is a caring adult who wants to get to know them, and are working diligently to help get them in a safe and permanent home to grow up in. These essential volunteers are making a positive difference and I am so impressed and proud of all that they do for these children. It has been my pleasure to work with these incredible men and women. They do this work because they genuinely
believe every child has the fundamental right to grow up in the nurturing embrace of a warm, loving family and it's been inspiring to see the changes made one child at a time due to the CASA volunteers. Thank you!
Joy Nolan, Program Manager

Belknap & Carroll County
