Kathleen Sullivan: Oh, ye of little faith

NOW THAT was an interesting election. The final polls showed Republicans leading in the U.S. Senate race and the 1st Congressional District, with the 2nd Congressional District tightening. There were Democrats fretting that all was lost.

Kathleen Sullivan: Group emerges to counter Free State meddling

EFFORTS BY members of the radical libertarian Free State Project to remake New Hampshire are facing a counter-revolution from Granite Staters who prefer competence in government to disruption for disruption’s sake. First there was Croydon. This past spring, voters overturned an earlier town meeting decision to slash the school...

Kathleen Sullivan: Just a little break from politics

WELCOME TO the second half of summer, and those few weeks left to read at the beach, or in your hammock. It is a time to read to escape. Escape from infuriating Jan. 6 hearings, the too many, too early political signs popping up like an invasive species, and Republican House leader Jason Osborne’s inexcusable and inane tweets about buying assault weapon ammunition on the heels of the Uvalde school slaughter.

Kathleen Sullivan: 'As Americans, we are disgusted'

THERE HAVE BEEN villains throughout American political history — Benedict Arnold and Jefferson Davis being the most infamous. If there were any doubts about whether Donald Trump belongs on that not-so-illustrious list, the January 6 Committee hearings erased them all. He is a low rent wannabe tyrant who betrayed...

Kathleen Sullivan: 'Fruity' Osborne's rotten leadership

IT SHOULD BE a cause for celebration that Democrats and Republicans have agreed on a proposed framework to enact a gun safety law following the recent slaughters at a New York supermarket and a Texas grammar school. Some think the proposed framework does not go far enough, but after 30...

Kathleen Sullivan: Guns are leading cause of death for kids

THE LEADING CAUSE of death among children aged 1 to 19 years old in the United States is guns. The American Journal of Medicine article that published this finding used the term “firearm-related injuries,” but let’s keep it simple: guns are killing American kids more than anything else. It used to be car crashes, but in 2020 gun deaths moved into first place.

Kathleen Sullivan: No, Sununu is not pro-choice

CHRIS SUNUNU is spending a lot of time calling himself a “pro-choice” governor. Responding to the leak of the draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, he claimed to be committed to upholding Roe, adding “as long as I am governor,” abortion services would remain safe and legal in New Hampshire.

Kathleen Sullivan: Who was happier to learn Mowers voted twice?

Chris Sununu, or the field of candidates competing against Mowers for the Republican nomination in the 1st Congressional District?.

Kathleen Sullivan: Sununu stumbles again

THE SCRAMBLING, backpedaling and complaining from Gov. Chris Sununu and Executive Councilors Janet Stevens and Joe Kenney show the political hot water they find themselves in over the council’s refusal to fund three women’s health organizations. Last week’s vote could sink their 2022 electoral prospects. Stevens and Kenney, along with...

Kathleen Sullivan: Every vote is huge in a municipal primary

IN 2019, only 8,832 people cast ballots in the Manchester municipal primary, an average of 736 per ward. Hopefully, the upcoming Sept. 21 primary has a larger turnout. In addition to the mayoral and aldermen-at large-primaries, there is an important primary for school committee-at-large. There also are competitive primaries in wards 4, 5, 8 and 12 for ward aldermen, and in wards 2 and 10 for school committee.

Kathleen Sullivan: Gov. Sununu could learn from Sen. Hassan

ONE CONSTANT of Republican Gov. Chis Sununu’s tenure in office has been his carping about New Hampshire’s all-Democratic congressional delegation. Not long after taking office in 2017, he claimed that the delegation did not effectively advocate for the state. More recently, he asserted that he could not think of anything the delegation had done to put New Hampshire first.
