Celebrating the library
To the editor:
I just had to give a "shout out" to the Derry library and staff. I've been a patron for 50 years and am a huge fan.
However, last week the evening staff went above the call of duty to get me the audio book I requested, which had arrived (inter-library loan) but had not been processed.
I was unable to return the next day when it would have been available for pickup, and staff stopped what they were doing to accommodate me. Such wonderful patron service. Thank you!
Nelson committed to supporting smaller government
To the editor:
We have a Republican primary for state representative on Oct. 19 at West Running Brook School in Derry. As an independent voter who is an avid observer of town politics, I’m familiar with the candidates. And I’m pleased with the successes of our current Republican representatives at the Statehouse this past year, as well as the direction they are headed in.
I see only one candidate in the race who will be able to work with our current representatives, will stand for conservative values, will caucus with the Republican majority, and who will defend us from the Biden administration’s overreach. That candidate is Jodi Nelson.
Nelson is the candidate in the race who publicly supports the Republican budget signed by Gov. Chris Sununu. That budget returned money to towns to lower property taxes. It cut taxes for businesses, to spur growth. It lowered the rooms and meals tax. It created educational opportunities for students. It phases out the interest and dividends tax.
And New Hampshire joined 44 other states opposing late-term abortions.
Nelson is committed to supporting what I value most — smaller government.
She will continue the work for spurring economic growth, lowering taxes and fees, and supporting educational opportunities for all children.
She will fully honor and defend our Second Amendment rights, to keep our communities safe. She will protect us from spend-happy, revenue-raising politicians who will raise our taxes.
I hope others will join me in supporting Nelson for Derry in the Republican primary. She will serve us well.
We can trust Nelson to put community first
To the editor:
There is only one candidate in the Derry Republican primary who will stand up for our Republican principles.
I am proud to endorse Jodi Nelson for state representative. I’ve known her for many years, and her dedication to Derry is apparent in her community involvement.
Nelson’s work with the Sonshine Soup Kitchen, the PTA, the Salvation Army, and the Boys and Girls club is exemplary. On top of that, I’ve always known her to be an individual who is positive and generous, is always volunteering or asking how she can help her friends and neighbors, and has the much-needed temperament to be a problem-solver in the Statehouse.
Derry and the state of New Hampshire would truly benefit by electing Jodi Nelson to be their next state representative
Nelson is committed to supporting our business community; she supports our students and their educational choices; she will stand with our veterans, police, fire and first responders; and she will fight to protect your paychecks and hard-earned money from new taxes, fees, or tax increases.
Nelson is the only candidate in the race who has publicly opposed President Joe Biden’s mandates which seek to tell New Hampshire residents and businesses how they should conduct themselves.
We can trust Nelson to put her community first and to protect taxpayers from Concord’s bureaucracies and elected officials who think bigger government is the solution.
I hope voters join me in supporting Jodi Nelson in the Republican primary on Oct. 19.
State Sen. Regina Birdsell
