Letter To The Editor

 

President Donald John Trump is loudly accusing the US Postal Service of delivering parcels for Amazon at prices below USPS cost and that the difference is being born by US taxpayers.

 

Yes, USPS has significant losses, but, this is complicated by 4th class mail, rural deliveries, and Congressionally mandated free mailings for a few large groups of mailers. Rest assured USPS, UPS et al will go the way of the dinosaur once electronic communication and delivery drones hit full stride.

 

But really! President Donald John Trump, how about the extravagant  expenses of your ‘champagne and caviar’ cabinet? I won’t detail as I presume most voters are aware of the Presidential Cabinet culprits.

 

Really, really? President Donald John Trump had, as of March 2018, played golf at a course owned by himself 106 times/days! (I understand there are several fine golf courses near the White House.) How many round trips has Air Force One made just to Mar a Largo? What is the value of free advertising (publicity) Trump properties and golf courses received from the capricious comings-and-goings of this president at taxpayer expense? Is the presidency part of Donald John Trump’s ‘Business Plan?’

 

Oh! And one more thing. Who’s paying for the wall?

Letter

 

To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

This week, my committee continued with Senate bills. SB 488, exempting VA doctors from licensing for the biennium if they work on veterans at other facilities, was heard with minimal interest from the sponsors, as we and the Senate preferred HB 1273, which addressed the same issue in a more comprehensive way. We voted immediately to kill the bill. SB 507, declaring June PTSI month, was amended to be effective on passage, not 60 days later, and unanimously passed. SB 453, shielding the name and medical details of an employee injured on duty from public disclosure, required a fair amount of explanation. The bill only affects the governor and council’s confirmation that the employee had been attacked, prior to continuing their full salary, not just worker’s compensation. With that understanding, we recommended it to pass, 9-2, with the opposition concerned that since we were spending state money to keep the employee on paid leave, we should know about it.

 

We also voted on all Senate bills that needed to go to another committee. SB 538, on moving the Concord campus police force to Group II, was unanimously voted to pass, since these officers are now fully trained and certified state police and meet the definition of Group II. We approved all four bills dealing with emergency medical services, three unanimously. SB 378, exempting home health care agencies, laboratories, and residential homes from needing to license their employees as medical technicians, was strongly supported by almost everyone except the board of medical technicians. Even the other opponents agreed that these people were not medical technicians, they didn’t need registration, but preferred a non-legislative solution. We voted 18-0 to pass the bill and not leave the issue open to misinterpretation.
