One Year Later – A Lack of H.O.P.E. In Manchester Schools

Finally, the Manchester School Committee’s “secret” meeting about secret dealings regarding spending on a program, not supervised or approved by the Committee, hit the public. https://www.girardatlarge.com/2018/09/improper-secret-meeting-minutes-unsealed-released/ Once again it took a pry bar for Manchester taxpayers to see where funding for another program, which looks suspiciously like the special interest of a single employee of the school, comes from. The “pry bar” in this respect was a group of dedicated elected officials on the school committee who cling to the public’s right to know.  I must mention the lead “pry bar” was Committee Member Rich Girard. And, in a...

New Boston Has Town Policies – Depending Who You Are

As New Boston plays “Whack-a-Mole” with a commercial property that has been in existence since June 1965 as a repair garage/towing service, now deemed a “junkyard” in order to strip its vested property rights, a few questions pop up.  (For background on this story, please click here for story one and here for story two.  ~Publius) “Duke’s Garage,” the business in question, was issued a summons in 1970, by New Boston Police, for having more than two unregistered cars parked there.  It turns out the offending vehicles were awaiting insurance company clearance for being towed by Duke’s Garage.  Residential properties...

CNHT says Family Leave Bill a step towards an income tax

As you may know, The Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers collects the anti-broad-based tax pledge  simply known as – THE PLEDGE.  We have been collecting The Pledge from candidates since 2000.  Luckily, no direct vote on a sales or income tax has appeared in that time. As a taxpayer activist since 1988, I pay attention to the support of sales or income taxes from the general public and the groups we work with.  It wasn’t that long ago, early 90’s, that you might hear someone at a meeting or public forum bring up broad based taxes as a solution...

Can I Drop Off A Junkyard In Your Town?

A few weeks ago, I was asked to help a couple, John and Mona Winslow of New Boston, who were the subject of an administrative order to have “junk” removed from their property.  The property is a pre-existing, nonconforming use in effect from about June of 1965.  Tons of documentation prove this.  The Town, in document after document – documents the pre-existing nonconforming uses of the 1.5 acre lot.  It is a one-man repair garage, towing service.  He plows snow, welds, fabricates, and performs all manner of mechanical magic. John Winslow is the typical, old-fashioned Yankee who can make...

And The Judge Said “What’s The Hurry?”

In New Boston there is a longstanding issue of a so-called junkyard.  The property is located on River Rd. and has been a grandfathered repair garage since at least 1970.  It is documented as such in a request by the Town to provide liability insurance in 1971. The Town took the “Duke’s Garage,” owned by the Winslow family, to Goffstown District Court in 1978 for having more unregistered cars than allowed – and the Town lost. A grandfathered repair garage is allowed under the New Boston Ordinance.  The owner has an established right to continue. In 1991, the Town...

We Talked Among Giants

Rich Girard’s radio program saw its final broadcast last Friday. That is too bad but is pretty normal for talk radio. Shows come and go. But this one is a great loss, especially to Manchester, NH. Rich, kindly let me dominate 20 minutes of his program every Wednesday mornings from 6:40 – 7:00 am. This went on for four years. Luckily, NH has enough voter fraud to fill any program. And we did – happily. Here is my first show August 7, 2013: https://www.girardatlarge.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/8-7-2013-Hour-1bc.mp3 I have not changed my story – NH has not come close to stemming voter...

Pat Long Gone

Ward 3 Manchester, NH Alderman Pat Long lost a seat on that board by just seven votes out of over a thousand cast. That is a close race. I wonder if Pat Long has any second thoughts about elections and “one man one vote” now that he has time on his hands? It wasn’t that long ago Alderman Long was interviewing me on Girardatlarge.com Radio. The subject of voter fraud came up and we discussed it in detail. Being that I was with Project Veritas during the 2016 NH Presidential Primary when Alderman long was working as a ballot...
