cronies send letters to the editor. You’ve been a staunch tax and spend Democrat who has consistently voted to raise my taxes and kill my small business. We can clearly see her voting record and she must think we are fools.”

“Thumbs down to the Salem High School not


sticking by the automotive teacher of 19 years which caused the program to go down the tubes. Mr. Ring you are sorely missed!”


“Thumbs down to the arrogance of the politician on North Main Street who was called out for having 3 commercial vehicles parked in his yard. Rather than voluntarily comply with the town ordinance, he’s moved the vehicles closer to the street so they are more prominently displayed as if to say ‘I’m untouchable.’ ‘Laws without enforcement are impotent’… Robert Kennedy”


“Thumbs down to the landscaper on School


Street who parks his trucks and trailers on the new sidewalk. One, your blocking the passage of our kids walking home from school, and secondly, sidewalks aren’t designed to hold vehicles, you’re ruining thousands of dollars of the town’s property.”


“Thumbs up to the Nationwide Insurance office in the Broadway Crossing Plaza in Salem for donating $50,000 to the NH Food Bank this past weekend. It was very generous and will help those who are in need. Great Job!”


“Thumbs down to State Rep. candidate Jane Lang for her Letter to Editor in last weeks paper. Nice try attempting to rewrite history for you and Beth Roth’s self-serving liberal agenda. Your being a Democrat


makes me proud to be voting Republican in this election. With your background why should anyone legitimately listen to anything you have to say? By the way, have you paid back that money you ‘borrowed?’”


“Thumbs up to Congressman Charlie Bass for being the only candidate for United States Congress to care enough about Salem to attend


forget where you came from? I have never seen a school bus empty. Maybe you should check out the time the bus comes by your home. Is it after school when children are all dropped off? Is it early in morning when the routes have just started? As for ‘resenting’ paying higher taxes for my children, let me just say this. The new school projects our for children and the future of the children of this town and I resent the fact you do not wanna support them. I have an idea for you. Wherever you go or live you have to pay taxes and it sounds to me like you need to leave the selfishness behind and find another town to live in!! You do not know how lucky you are to live in a town like Salem, NH. And that is a fact!!”

Anthony DiFruscia. After being rejected in the Republican primary for voting in lockstep with Democrats, he is now attempting a write-in campaign as an Independent. So first he was a Massachusetts Democrat, then a New Hampshire Republican, and now an Independent. Does this guy have any real principles beyond his own interests and ego? We should have ‘sore loser’ laws against guys like this.”


“Thumbs down to Salem voters with Beverly Hollingworth signs on their lawns. Why wouldn’t we want Chris Sununu who is originally from Salem representing us on the Executive Council? Haven’t we had enough of candidates from the seacoast who only look out for themselves and don’t care about the rest of us? Chris Sununu will be a strong voice for Salem.”

the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce candidate’s forum. I am thankful that Congressman Bass has never been afraid to face voters in our community. My understanding is that his opponent, Annie Kuster was unable to attend because she was in San Francisco for a fundraiser with Nancy Pelosi. It really tells us where her values are and they sure aren’t in New Hampshire.”

“Thumbs down to Representative Carolyn


Webber. I see that your lawn signs say that you will ‘Save Rockingham Park.’ How are you going to ‘Save Rockingham Park’ when you didn’t file a single piece of legislation on your own for your entire term at the State House? You have been a State Representative for two years and have nothing to show for it.”

As a parent I thought this was a most ignorant statement. Even though you do not have children in the system it is a responsibility as a resident to promote your school system. How did you go to school? Was it paid for by taxpayers? Unless you sir or madam went to a private school, did you


“Thumbs up to former President George W. Bush. Democrats may want to think twice about bringing up former President Bush’s name while campaigning this year. A new CNN poll asked Americans who did a better job in the White House -- Barack Obama or Bush. The results were razor thin. With a 47-to-45 percent split, Obama just barley beat Bush.”


‘Thou Shalt Not Kill.’ I pray everyone knows abortion’s lies someday. I too don’t believe in Obama’s wish for government- run everything. Obama is pro- choice because it’s a way to control population. Give the liberals a chance and we’ll be utilizing China’s one child per family law. With Obamacare


you’re as good as euthanized when you turn 70 because government won’t be able to afford nor have any use for you anymore. ‘Let them die and decrease the surplus population,’ said Scrooge. Fight for earth, animals, your own rights, but don’t you infringe on the rights of the unborn!”
