Supporting Michael Clemons for County Commissioner
In Support of the Knowles
Representatives Mary Ann Knowles and John Knowles have worked tirelessly for Hudson. They have been volunteers on many committees and boards for both the schools and the town for many years, most recently as “Unsung Heroes” of the Rodgers Memorial Library for their work to make that dream a reality.
When they were first elected to the House of Representatives in Concord, it had been 12 years since Hudson, Litchfield, and Pelham were represented by both political parties. Since then, they have made a difference in many lives. They helped raise the minimum wage for the first time in 10 years, and brought public kindergarten to Hudson. This past term, while our state was enduring the worst national economy in decades, they worked with Governor Lynch to help balance the budget while protecting services for those who were most affected. They worked to strengthen protections for workers. The WARN Act now requires companies to give their employees notice before major layoffs or closings. The New Hampshire Working Program is helping companies avoid layoffs and unemployed workers to get back to work. The Knowles have promised to work to make our economy stronger
and lower property taxes without enacting a sales or income tax. They value our quality of life and want to protect our environment and keep our New Hampshire the best and safest state in America. John and Mary Ann have one of the highest attendance records in Concord and both serve on numerous committees, giving all their spare time to protect and serve Hudson both on the state and town level. Representative Mary Ann Knowles and Representative John Knowles
have served Hudson well, and the citizens of Hudson should be honored to have them serve another term in Concord. If you want to know more about the Knowles’ work, look at their Website, knowlesforstatereps.org
, or just call them at home (880-4908). They are compassionate and caring individuals who are advocates for men, women, children, and seniors alike, and treat everybody with respect and dignity. Please join me in re-electing John Knowles and Mary Ann Knowles as State Representatives for Hudson, Litchfield, and Pelham.

Pat Nichols, Benson Park Committee - Hudson Laugh for Zach a Huge Success
Incredible gratitude goes out to all of you wonderful Hudson residents
who came out for the Laugh for Zach Comedy Fundraiser, making this event a great success and raising just over $13,500, from the Bears’ team boys who sold raffle tickets to the wonderful volunteers who worked the whole event from set-up to break-down. And for all of you attendees who folded up your chairs and broke down your tables, gosh, you’re good people! A delicious Italian dinner was donated and served well below cost by Professor’s Pizza owners Jimmy and Gina Eudice. Scrumptious cake was brought to us by Dawn Cordeiro of Cakes by Dawn. Fabulous music and mic was provided by Rich Padula of Sounds So Good. Amazing donations were received from many local businesses supporting the silent auction. Please remember them when you are out shopping this holiday season and support the businesses that support our town. The marvelously fun comedy show was brought to us well below cost by Alana Susko of Comedy On Purpose. Guests enjoyed the antics of Steve Albert giving away free beer; Jody Sloane, both witty and pretty; and Mike Prior and his pickle tragedy. Headliner Joey Carroll explained fair play when it comes to snow, new neighbors, and house fires. Joey will be touring the Persian Gulf later this month to entertain our troops. Special thanks to Mimi and Bob Guessferd, Tiffany Rose, and Joanne and Necole Tompkins for being the core members to create and make this event
Please consider voting to re-elect Michael Clemons to the office of Hillsborough County Commissioner. Since he has been in office, the county tax rate has gone down and county spending has been reduced. Commissioner Clemons moved or seconded over 25 motions to reduce county spending during the last budget cycle. Yet county services have been maintained at a very high level. Commissioner Clemons has always believed that it is the duty of the Hillsborough County Commissioners to make sure that the citizens of Hillsborough County are provided with the excellent services they deserve at a cost that is fair to the taxpayer. Two examples of this philosophy are found at the Hillsborough County Nursing Home and the Hillsborough House of Correction. The nursing home has attained the highest rating possible from its accreditation agency. The Hillsborough County House of Corrections has recently been chosen
as an exemplary jail by the Justice Center, Council of State Governments. Commissioner Clemons was has been a leader in the establishment and maintenance of Mental Health Courts in the county that has significantly reduced the population at the Hillsborough County House of Corrections. Voters in Hollis, Hudson, Nashua, and Pelham, please vote for Michael Clemons on November 2 and allow him to continue his fine work as County Commissioner.
Jodi Sutherland – Nashua Electoral Blindness
I was at the State House on Wednesday for business and ran into a
Democrat Colleague. As things happen, we began to discuss the upcoming election and speculate upon the outcome. My colleague adamantly and nearly angrily proclaimed that the “tea partiers” were nothing but bought- and-paid-for stooges of big corporations. Those who called themselves members of the Tea Party were regular Joes; the response was that “these people” were rejecting all government, and yet they were also collecting benefits from the munificence of the government. This colleague could not understand that those who identify with the Tea Party are actually willing to take a cut in give-away programs in order to save the country. This current Democrat Representative seemed totally unaware that it is the excessive and unnecessary spending and interference in life, which has started these grass-roots organizations. What were called “big corporations” by my associate are the same people
that provide each of us with goods and services that we need, want, or desire. The corporations would not exist if we, the people, did not purchase items. These businesses do not pay the man in the street to take time from his or her workday to attend a tax day rally. The man in the street is not paid, unlike some so-called labor-movement organizations, to attend a rally. We attend rallies to redress grievances of government interference. It is amazing that some can become so infatuated with the sweet words of an elite few to disregard what is clearly obvious – Change is in the air and it is a change from big, wasteful and freedom robbing “big government.” We, The People, are eagerly awaiting a return to small government and the opportunity to individually succeed.

Outdoors Gun Safety
Traditionally, around this time of year, firearms are pulled out and preparations are made for hunting season. It is also a good time to remember that safety is first priority. Children, non- hunters, and guests may all come in contact with guns; some for the first time. Remember the 10 commandments of gun safety. 1. Treat every firearm with the same respect due a loaded firearm. If you become careless with unloaded guns, you will soon become careless with loaded guns.
2. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. 3. Identify your target and what is behind it before you shoot. Never shoot at movement and make sure you know what is behind your target before you shoot.
4. Be sure the barrel and action are clear of obstructions and that you only have ammunition of the proper size for the firearm you are carrying.
5. Unload firearms when not in use. Leave the action open. Firearms should be carried unloaded and in a case to and from your shooting or hunting area.
6. Never point a firearm at anything you do not wish to destroy.
7. Never climb a fence, tree, or jump a ditch with a loaded firearm. Always unload the firearm before you cross and never pull a firearm towards you by the muzzle. Never lean a firearm against a tree, fence, wall, or automobile.
8. Never shoot a bullet at a flat, hard surface or water. Bullets can ricochet at odd angles.
9. Store firearms and ammunition separately beyond the reach of children and inexperienced adults.
10. Never mix gunpowder with alcohol or drugs. No one should drink alcoholic beverages or take drugs while hunting and never go hunting with anyone that does.

As a PSNH Customer Service Representative, Lisa Santos works hard every day to make sure things run smoothly at Noah’s Ark Kindergarten. And every evening, when she picks up her little girl and her floppy-eared sidekick from another busy day at Noah’s Ark, she’s given a warm reminder of why she does it. So, a fair question is…
could a bunny boost New Hampshire’s POWER SUPPLY?
