Letter To The Editor


To the people of Epsom:

When you enter the Epsom Traffic Circle you will see new and larger American and POW MIA flags flying in the winds.

Both flags have been replaced and they look fabulous. It does the Town proud to show the people care about the military service members that are serving and have served, and to our brave police officers who gave their lives in the line of duty for the citizens of the State of New Hampshire and the United States of America. The new flags were purchased by businesses and citizens of Epsom who donated money to purchase them and also a spare set so they may be replaced as needed. I would like to thank the following businesses and citizens for their donations:


Tim’s Truck Capital, Circle Restaurant, TD Bank, Soltani Law Office, Circle Auto Repair Shop, Epsom Fire Department, McBride’s Water Advantage, TKO Accessories, Care Pharmacy, Goodwin Auto, Epsom Circle Market, Wendy’s, Graphic Design Printing, Happy Family Chinese Restaurant, Bob Blodgett, Paul and Karen Moran, Leon Sargent, John Klose, David and Mary Kelloway.

To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield, This week the House met for two long days to vote on over 500 bills. HB1349, on the new Merrimack County courthouse. Last year, we passed the capital budget, allocating $16 million to build it - but specifying that it be on Hazen Drive, next to the Supreme Court. When the initial plans were reviewed, the sheriff and county attorney noted that there was no space for them in the new courthouse, and the city of Concord really wanted it downtown. So the city and the county worked together to plan a downtown courthouse, and HB1349 presented the plan. By reusing the existing courthouse site and better integrating the design and build than the state does, the county expects to build it for a little less than the state, but almost a year sooner. Dan and Rep. Dianne Schuett, of Pembroke, spoke in favor of the plan. The recommendation to kill the bill failed, 126-212, and it passed on a voice vote. If the Senate and governor approve, we should have a new courthouse before the end of next year.


We passed HB1313, requiring voters to be residents of New Hampshire; HB1428, using some money that had been squirreled away to fund several wastewater projects; and HB1605, banning latex gloves in food service, 180-162.


My HB1282, updating the state building code, was killed, 307-49, as was Dan’s HB1122, limiting state employees to no more than 15% supervisors, 200-150, both as the committee recommended.


We debated several bills to limit abortions at great length; the best of them, HB1625, banning abortions after viability, was recommended to pass. That motion failed, 148-151, and the bill was killed, 165-135. The others were killed by wider margins.


Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details than fit here.
