Letter To The Editor


The Belknap County Commissioners would like the citizens of the County to know that they were disappointed to miss the opportunity to attend the last Delegation meeting. The meeting was noticed as a Gunstock meeting only. The only item on the agenda was a revenue anticipation note for Gunstock.  On the morning of the meeting the Chairman of the Delegation issued a revised agenda which included topics that were not related to Gunstock, but certainly of interest to the County Commissioners.


The Commissioners, per RSA 91-a must provide 24 hour notice of any meeting they are to attend.  They were not able to meet the posting requirement. Coincidentally, a handful of citizens were made aware of the revised agenda and came prepared to discuss the additional topics. It is unfortunate that the general public had no notice of this change and no opportunity to consider attending the meeting.



The Belknap County Board of Commissioners

Last Chance To Say No To Obamacare In NH


On Tuesday, August 27, there will be a public hearing on the possible Obamacare Medicaid expansion here in New Hampshire. The hearing will be from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm in Representatives Hall at the Statehouse in Concord.  Since this hearing is during a work day, we know hard working citizens may not be able to voice their opinion on the expansion, but I encourage anyone who is able, to attend and speak up against Obamacare’s encroachment into our state through Medicaid expansion.  Bring a friend along – let’s make our voices heard!


We know Obamacare will lead to higher private health insurance costs and lesser quality care for all citizens.  Business is negatively affected with the mandate of Obamacare.  To be sure,  none of this is right for New Hampshire or our residents.  We can do better, but we must let our state officials hear from you, the citizens of New Hampshire!  


If you believe Obamacare is wrong for New Hampshire, I hope you will attend this public hearing and make sure your voice is heard.  Remember, there is strength in numbers!


Rep. Jane Cormier

Belknap District 8
