Gate City Musings: A round of cheers and jeers
One would think that those aldermen who are up for election this fall would have had the patriotic spirit and intelligence to march along with their colleagues who showed strong support for our veterans.
Jeers to school officials and the Board of Education for complaining. After this well-meaning attempt by Principal Ryan to assist financially disadvantaged North students, what made these parsimonious folks finally wake up? Additional jeers to School Board member Sandy Ziehm, who said there were a lot of things her board should approve. Which ones? And where have you been all these years, Sandy?
Jeers to State Rep. Dave Campbell and his cohorts, and Nashua's own Chamber of Commerce President Christopher Williams, for their extremely strong support for more taxes.
Cheers and Jeers to the Chamber on another front: Prexy Williams is one of a small group of rail enthusiasts appointed to yet another rail transportation study group.
Continued cheers to those state legislators who had the courage to vote for additional gambling to help the Granite State out of its financial hole.
Jeers to those responsible for the 2014 city budget. The mayor, Board of Aldermen and the Board of Education are the folks who want to take more out of our pockets with nary a concern of taxpayers. Anyone who tells us there won't be any fat in the new budget is smoking something stronger than corn silk.
