by Skip March 12, 2018

Thankfully, being an SB2 town, we get to vote in private.  I remember town meetings when the warrant was both debated and voted upon in a single session and how long they ran until way early into the morning as one special interest group (“SIG”) or another slowed it down until “the opposition” finally went […]

Officials need to understand that not everyone in Gilford is affluent…

by Op-Ed March 10, 2018

Endorsement for Norm Silber and Harry Bean for Gilford Budget Committee (reelection!)

by Skip March 9, 2018

Guest Post by NH State Rep Norm Silber – Big Government Conservatives

by Skip January 4, 2017

It is appropriate to post this Op-Ed as the NH House of Representatives starts its business. *************** While cleaning my garage of junk recently so I could get my car in out of the season’s first snow, my mind was wandering and I started to think about the term “moderate Republican” and what it might […]

Guest Post – newly elected NH House Rep Norm Silber

by Skip December 1, 2016

Who is MY House Rep – and chair of my hamlet’s Budget Committee. In the latter capacity, he’s doing a right fine job (especially in taking the School Board to TASK for obfuscation and obstructionism).  If he does all that he writes here (Laconia Daily Sun), I’ll be a happy camper!
