Opinion

I am writing this letter in support of Brian Gallagher to be elected the next District 1 Belknap County commissioner, representing the city of Laconia and the towns of New Hampton and Sanbornton. Brian has over 30 years of extensive public finance experience. Using his experience, I believe Brian would work with others on the commission and the Belknap County Delegation to produce a budget that would cover essential services as well as protect the county taxpayers.

Columnists

Why is it considered "liberal" to compel others to say or fund things they don't believe? That's a question raised by three Supreme Court decisions this year. And it's a puzzling development for those of us old enough to remember when liberals championed free speech — even advocacy of sedition or sodomy — and conservatives wanted government to restrain or limit it.
