again and those great guys at the meat department did me up 60

Letter To The Editor
The State Primary is coming up on Sep. 13,
so I’d like to highlight a couple of races for Republican voters.
First, Pittsfield’s Jim Adams is the best choice for Executive
Council. The Council’s job is to approve state contracts and the
Governor’s appointments, mostly judges and department managers. For
that you want someone like a governor; strong management experience
with some government familiarity. I can’t think of anyone better
than Jim for the job. He made his career in the post office, rising
from letter carrier to chief of staff of the Postmaster General in
Washington, and postmaster of New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. This
was at the time when the post office was converted from being run
for political patronage to being run professionally. The postal
service is much larger than our state government, although obviously
not as varied. Lately Jim has chaired Granite State Taxpayers, our
statewide taxpayer organization. He is a New Hampshire native, a
veteran, a family man and a conservative. We’d be lucky to have him
represent us on the Executive Council.
Second, Dave Palfrey is the best choice to
replace me in the State House. Dave has ample experience as both a
Rep and a former mayor (of Franklin). His professional background is
in banking. This is a very complicated part of the law. It is
important to have representatives with knowledge of these kinds of
technical areas who can see to it that the laws are not just written
by lobbyists, but are designed to encourage competition and
commerce. Dave is an easy-going, affable guy, who would represent us
well in Concord.

On Wednesday, September 7 at 1:30 PM, the Epsom Library will be
showing the movie “Truth”. Starring Cate Blanchett, Dennis
Quaid and Robert Redford, the film is based on the true story of one
of network news’ biggest scandals detailing the 2004 CBS 60
minutes report investigating then President George W. Bush’s
military service. The avalanche of allegations and document
uauthenicity cost anchor Dan Rather and producer Mary Mapes their
