Capital Beat: Governor’s inaugural address steered clear of several big issues that Democrats will push
As policy blueprints go, Gov. Chris Sununu’s inaugural address ran the gamut: opioid treatment, education, energy policies, suicide prevention. The hour-long speech covered a swath of territory familiar to anyone in touch with New Hampshire’s major problems.

A look back at Gov. Sununu’s legislative wins, losses in 2018
Gov. Chris Sununu stormed to re-election this year, sailing by with high approval ratings and economic goodwill. But his legislative track record proved rockier. For Sununu, it was an agenda framed by several crucial victories and a small cluster of high-profile defeats.

Letter: Northern Pass ‘nonsense’
To Dolly McPhaul (Monitor Opinion, Dec. 15): You said it all at the beginning of you opinion rant – “Sununu was elected, and is paid, by the people of New Hampshire for representing them.” Gov. Chris Sununu was open about his support for Northern Pass before the election, and he received the majority of the votes from the “people of New Hampshire.” Unlike you and others who are the most vocal against Northern Pass and what’s best for New Hampshire and New England, the majority of N.H. residents are either for Northern Pass and/or are okay with our elected officials making the informed decision. That’s why we have a representative government. Stop spewing nonsense and just get out of the way of progress and what’s best for New Hampshire.

Laura Magzis: Granite Bridge project would be a nightmare
Heartfelt thanks to the Monitor for Sunday’s editorial about the danger to life and civilization posed by the use of fossil fuels. I agree with the writer about the disastrous Trump administration plan to drill for oil off the coast of New Hampshire and other Eastern states. And it is certainly appropriate to call on Gov. Chris Sununu to take a stronger stand against this plan.

Letter: Beyond poles and wires
Thank you for David Brooks’s excellent story about Maine’s experiment with saving electric ratepayers money by relying on alternatives to old-fashioned investments in poles and wires (“Reinventing the power grid in coastal Maine – well, sort of,” Monitor front page, Dec. 4). But I respectfully disagree with Maine energy entrepreneur Rich Silkman, who said: “The problem is that there’s no advocate for non-wires alternatives, no entity that has a level of expertise that a utility does in looking at these broader solutions.”

Reinventing the power grid in coastal Maine – well, sort of

Editorial: Kelly is right choice for governor
Today, in this nation, the fires of division are being fanned daily by President Donald Trump, and many midterm elections will be as much a referendum on him as on the merits of the candidates on the ballot. That, inescapably, is the case in this year’s gubernatorial race as well.
