TriTown Dems To Host Bill Duncan From NH Board Of Education Sept 10th


TriTown Democrats to Host Bill Duncan from the New Hampshire State Board of Education on September 10, 2015.


New Durham, New Hampshire  - August 24, 2015 - The TriTown Democrats, representing the Democratic Committees of Farmington, Milton, and New Durham, is proud to host Bill Duncan, member of the NH State Board of Education, to give a talk on the state of Education in New Hampshire.  The event will take place at 7:00 PM on September 10 at the New Durham Library, 2 Old Bay Rd, New Durham.


The State Board of Education (SBE) is a seven-member body whose members serve without pay except for reimbursement of expenses incurred in the performance of their duties.  Members cannot be technical educators or professionally engaged in school work. Members are appointed by the governor and executive council.  Five are selected, one each, from the five executive councilor districts and two are selected from the public at large. Except when appointed to fill the unexpired term of a previous member, members serve for a five-year term and may serve up to two consecutive terms. The Board must hold at least six regular meetings a year.


Bill Duncan is a retired technology entrepreneur and the founder of Advancing New Hampshire Public Education (www.anhpe.org), dedicated to advocating for public education in the State. Born in Boston, he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and served in Vietnam as an advisor to the Vietnamese Navy before starting a business and nonprofit career.  He founded, and for 12 years led, the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development, a leading economic development organization creating jobs and housing for low-income families in Central Appalachia. In that role, he organized 100 Eastern Kentucky banks to provide subsidized financing housing for low-income families in Central Appalachia and founded Forward in the Fifth, the first education advocacy organization dedicated to building common ground among parents, administrators and teachers in hard-pressed mountain schools. Mr. Duncan moved to New Hampshire in 1986 and resides in New Castle.


The TriTown Democratic Committee advocates for strong local support of our communities, and supports legislation and candidates that are community minded.  Their activities provide political, economic, and social information for the citizens of the three towns, but also encourages progressive movements in these areas at all levels of government.  Through community involvement, political action, and a shared vision, the group seeks to expand equity and opportunity for all residents of the Towns of Farmington, Milton, and New Durham.

We had another great day this year for Farmington Hay Day! the rain held out and the day ened up being warm and sunny.  We had our our regular booth space at the corner of Main and Central. We sold political buttons, the ever popular Thank Democrats bumper stickers, and Farmington, NH postcard sets. Since we have started the election cycle we had lots of political literature for people to take and candidate representatives on hand to help people get to know candidates for the upcoming  election. We hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did!

Senator Sam Cataldo Agrees To Hear Constituents About State Budget, Doesn't Show For Meeting



Senator Sam Cataldo Agrees To Hear Constituents About State Budget Concerns, Doesn't Show Up For Meeting

Senator Sam Cataldo agreed to attend a meeting to hear constituent voices and their concerns regarding the State Budget, including funding for agencies, Judicial Branch, CCSNH, and the Executive Branch contract. The meeting with the Senator was scheduled for the Rochester Public Library, over two weeks ago, and was widely publicized for 5 - 6pm on August 18th. Participants were asked to call in ahead of time to  reserve space. Tuesday, August 18th arrived and people from Cataldo's district assembled for the meeting, at five.  Five minutes went by, no Cataldo, fifteen minutes go by, no Cataldo.

At this point Sam Cataldo is called and is eventually reached. He is reminded of the scheduled meeting. He gives an excuse that he has a conflict. He is at a local, monthly Republican committee meeting, at the Pink Cadillac, in Rochester, and he will not be coming. That monthly meeting doesn't even start until six.

So let me just recap. Cataldo agrees to hear constituents in his district. He doesn't cancel. He doesn't reschedule, though he had an opportunity to do both. The meeting convenes as scheduled, because he can't be bothered to keep track of what he is doing and doesn't think to cancel or reschedule. He then chooses a recurring political meeting over hearing from constituents. He was in Rochester. He easily could have met with his constituents at the library at 5:00, and then excused himself a bit early to attend the meeting at the Pink Cadillac, if he actually cared about hearing from his constituents.  He could have given those constituents who had scheduled to meet with him a half hour to 45 minutes of his time.

This is why we need to vote Sam Cataldo out of office. He cares more about politics than people and can't possibly be bothered to hear what his constituents have to say on an important issue. Shame on you Sam Cataldo for not having the decency to  meet with the public or giving them the common courtesy to cancel the meeting ahead of time or reschedule for a different date.

Racist Fears Have Long Driven Attempts To Restrict Birthright Citizenship




"The same congress, shortly afterwards, evidently thinking it unwise, and perhaps unsafe, to leave so important a declaration of rights to depend upon an ordinary act of legislation, which might be repealed by any subsequent congress, framed the fourteenth amendment of the constitution."  United States v.
