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.

Letter: Ask about Northern Pass
The upcoming election faces voters with a host of important issues they must weigh carefully before deciding whom to vote for. With passions high on a variety of issues, it is important for us not to forget about an issue that is important to so many here in the Granite State. I’m talking about the Northern Pass project, the project with enormous towers that serve no other purpose than to act as giant extension cord supports through the natural beauty of our state to benefit Massachusetts. When making an informed decision on how to cast your vote, it is important to remember that this project is still very much alive. Reach out to your candidates for state office and ask where they stand on Northern Pass. Let them know that we don’t want our state to be an extension cord. As you weigh your important vote, don’t forget to ask where these candidates stand on Northern Pass.

The state’s oldest (probably) electric-car chargers are in Concord, and could use a bit of TLC
Electric vehicles are all the rage these days but as far as former NHTI professor Tom Hopper is concerned, we’re a bunch of Johnny-come-latelys. He remembers them being the rage before the first George Bush became president.

While leaks are common, disasters involving gas rare in N.H.
As Massachusetts copes with one of the nation’s worst residential natural gas disasters, New Hampshire can be thankful that even though 120,000 customers have natural gas in the state, it has seen few major accidents and a single fatality over the past three decades.

State Rep. Jim McConnell: Sununu ‘blundered badly’ by vetoing energy bills
Gov. Chris Sununu blundered badly by vetoing Senate Bill 365 (use of biomass and waste-to-energy facilities) and Senate Bill 446 (net metering limits for customer generators). Both his reasoning and his numbers are wrong.

Rep. Herb Richardson and Sen. Dan Feltes: Let’s focus on local energy and jobs, lower rates
From the senior on a fixed income of Social Security in Lancaster, to the small business owner in Henniker, to the family in manufactured housing in East Concord, affording energy is often an ongoing battle. They all expect and they all deserve bipartisan compromise and problem-solving on energy.
