Letters: Mediation Fails to Resolve Fire Contracts

Thursday, March 23, 2017 Carol Robidoux 0

Historically, since the inception of the city’s proposal and adoption of the Yarger-Decker pay scale, cost of living adjustments have been consistently applied to the City’s Unions. This year the City has been reluctant to follow this decades-old practice. Jeff Duval, President of Local 856, has stated repeatedly, “The Fire Fighters in the City are not looking for more than anyone else, we simply want to be treated the same as the other groups. The cost of living doesn’t change based upon what City department you work for.” READ MORE

Letters: ‘We all want a superintendent who can hit the ground running with wide community support’

Thursday, September 15, 2016 Carol Robidoux 0

According to what I have been able to download from the school district’s website, no room in the September 23 schedule is devoted to designated meetings with teachers, principals, parents, students, and/or community partners. True public input, it seems, will be possible only at a Friday night public forum to be convened mere hours before the board is set to extend a job offer to one of the finalists. READ MORE

As a Gold Star Parent, Sen. Ayotte’s Continued Support for Donald Trump is Deeply Disappointing

Tuesday, August 2, 2016 Carol Robidoux 1

All of our political leaders have a moral responsibility to stand up to Trump and make clear that his actions are not befitting of any American, let alone someone running to be Commander-in-Chief. Our leaders, regardless of their political party, should send the message that it is unacceptable to support someone for President who would attack the family members of fallen soldiers. READ MORE

Rethinking the War on Drugs: ‘Stand up for the people you love and demand treatment instead of punishment’

Friday, June 3, 2016 Carol Robidoux 0

I think you, the reader and voter, know that the War on Drugs has failed. I don’t know which way you should vote this fall, and I don’t really care. What’s important today is that you write your NH reps and let them know that we’ve had enough of the stupid War on Drugs, that it isn’t working, and that it’s time to look to new solutions. We’re ruining it for everyone else. READ MORE

Please help me to take back our democracy

Thursday, April 14, 2016 Carol Robidoux 2

At age 68, I was arrested this week for he first time in my life. My misdemeanor offense, and that of my more than 400 fellow arrestees, was blocking the the front of the U.S. Capitol. We did it because big money is blocking us, and all ordinary Americans, from being heard – or at least heeded – by Congress. READ MORE

Open Letter to the Citizens of Manchester and Elected Officials:

Thursday, February 11, 2016 Carol Robidoux 0

Recently, we spoke with someone who does not live in Manchester and has young children. They fully recognize that living in Manchester would highly benefit them professionally but are frankly “scared” of the Manchester School District. The reality is great work is being done under the leadership of Dr. Livingston and her staff, yet the constant barrage of negativity around our schools threatens this progress. READ MORE
