Political Conversation is Alive and Well in Andover

By Kent Hackmann

Letters in the May and June issues highlight two contrasting political positions.    On the moderate Democratic side, Ken Wells reported in May on his legislative activity in the New Hampshire General Court.  He has a clear commitment to measures that benefit all of us. I highlight three: Funding for education to reverse the many […]

Report from Concord

By Ken Wells & David Kerrick

With the end of June comes the end of the regular legislative schedule. The House and Senate have read each other’s bills and made their decisions to concur or reject each one of them. A huge pile of bills are sitting on Governor Sununu’s desk, awaiting his signature. If he signs a bill, it becomes […]

Did Your State Representative Really Vote on your Behalf?

By Natalie Wells

While you are going to work everyday to make a living, stay retired, State Representatives Clyde Carson, David Karrick and Ken Wells (no relation) are undermining not only your taxes but your 2nd Amendment rights, and so much more. Part of the State Budget, SB1, sponsored by Democrat Senator Dan Feltes is a Mandatory Paid […]

Keeping Taxes Low is Under Attack

By Louise Andrus

As we celebrate the 4th of July in the company of family and friends with a cookout or maybe go to a parade and fireworks, we should think about the meaning of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

The Andover Beacon is a great local newspaper.    I enjoy reading it each month. It is full of good local news.  But I would like to suggest maybe adding more news from the surrounding towns of Danbury, Wilmot, and Salisbury.

Representative Natalie Wells Seeks Second Term

I thank everyone who gave me their vote of confidence two years ago to serve as your Representative. These two years have gone by very quickly, and I want to continue the momentum of what I said I would do for the constituents of Merrimack 25.   Therefore, I am seeking my 2nd term for […]

Report from Representative Wells

By Natalie Wells, State Representative

As I write this, the  House Session will meet two more times before winding down for this year.  It has been a very intense year for many bills. Some were signed into law, others may get reintroduced next Session. Again I notice Mr. Karrick listing bills and how I voted. That’s fine. However, one sentence […]

Once again I’ve been tracking some of the recent votes of our current State Representatives, Anne Copp and Natalie Wells, at the Statehouse in Concord: March 22 Session: House Bill 1313, Repeals prohibitions on carrying a loaded firearm on your OHRV or Snowmobile; Wells voted in favor, Copp was absent. Bill passed 181 to 148. […]

Letter to Editor

By Stewart B Epstein

To The Editor: Politics in this country has reached the point where I would be shocked if any candidate for the US House or Senate  showed the courage to support a national-wealth tax of 25 percent on all individuals worth $10 million or more. Here’s what we could do with that revenue: 1. Eliminate the […]
