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
Potluck at the Kelley’s Corner Schoolhouse, Route 129, Lower
Gilmanton, Saturday, Sept. 14th from 6-8 pm. Bring friends, potluck
to share and pocket change for the maintenance fund. Hope to see you

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
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
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
