to the Editor
week’s letters provided interesting information about where
Northwood voters – those 800+ of you who took the opportunity, not
the 1,300+ who didn’t – decided to spend money on governmental
services. Jim Hadley calls the 16% increase in town spending
“hefty.” Since a third of that is for an additional $100K to fix
roads, I would call it necessary – and overdue.
presents his “annual comparison” of school spending in Northwood v.
Nottingham. Turns out that we’ve budgeted 7% more this year than
they have. Before you get too excited, Tim Jandebeur, our School
Board member who pays close attention to Special Ed costs, would
point out that this difference could be the cost of 4 Special Ed
kids. Unless and until Jim gets into the budget details, these
gross comparisons are useless at best and misleading at worse.
Faiella, meanwhile, seems to shame us all for “engaging in politics
to get benefits from government.” His French philosopher, Frederic
Bastiat (1801-1850) has him believing that “it is not a ‘right’ to
force other people to work and pay taxes so that government can give
us our favorite programs.” I would note that this is coming from a
retired public school teacher who worked for the government
providing one of my favorite programs – history classes!
prefer Lincoln’s concept of “government of the people, by the people
and FOR the people” (emphasis added). I just had my septic tank
pumped, and thanks to you, the citizens of Northwood, there is a
lagoon at the Transfer Station to receive it. I’m not sure where
Mike puts his.
before you become too enamored of this Libertarian rhetoric – or
Yvonne Dean-Bailey who wants to go to Concord to “fight against
taxes” – think about what government delivers: roads and schools.
Oh, yes, and defibrillators and sewage lagoons.
To The Editor:
United State Senate Budget Committee website, there is an
application that will tell you your lifetime share of the national
debt by simply typing in your birth date. The application is quite
shocking and quite concerning as it calculates the share of the
average ten year old as over one million dollars. For a fifty year
old, the lifetime share of the national debt is still at a
staggering 200,000 dollars. From this 800,000 dollar difference, it
is clear that reckless spending is not only hurting our country as a
whole, but it is most strongly affecting our students, children and
we have a lot to do at the federal level to help curb this burden,
but we can also affect spending at the state level by promoting
fiscally responsible values. Values that will not add to the burden
that so many young people and young families will face as our debt
continues to grow. In my letter last week I wrote about Governor
Maggie Hassan’s cadillac budget that would put tough restraints on
many families in New Hampshire and add 1 billion dollars in new
spending. We need fiscally responsible leaders in the New Hampshire
House that will keep the priorities of Granites Staters at the
forefront of the conversation when tackling the state budget.
March 31st I will be one of the candidates on the ballot for the
Special Election Republican Primary for State Representative. If
elected, I pledge to help curb reckless spending in Concord and work
to reduce the burden that falls upon the young families and
residents of New Hampshire. I pledge to be a strong voice against
tax increases for businesses and families and I would be honored to
have your vote on March 31st.
To The Editor
quick note to congratulate the Northwood voters who soundly defeated
mandatory All Day K. It is good to see that common sense and freedom
still prevail in Northwood and NH. Let’s continue to take back
ground that has been lost and get the power back to the good people
of this great state!
