NH, Massachusetts lawmakers speak against I-93 toll By Terry Date email@example.com "If a toll were proposed, legislative opposition would be strong", Sapareto said. Massachusetts has not filed a letter with the Federal Highway Administration indicating its intent to apply for the toll program. New Hampshire has filed a letter of intent with the agency. A coalition of more than 70 legislators from New Hampshire and Massachusetts restated its opposition to Interstate 93 border tolls yesterday, following word that New Hampshire plans to apply for federal approval for a southbound toll in April. "We have nothing to do with this application for federal approval," said Rep. Frank Sapareto, R-Derry, a coalition organizer. Furthermore, Sapareto said, he wonders where New Hampshire Department of Transportation Commissioner George ...

Editorial: Baldasaro's silly comment no cause for resignation - Derry News, The (NH) Jan, 28, 2010 10:46 AM - Derry News, The (NH)Jan. 28--State Rep. Al Baldasaro, R-Londonderry, brings a great deal of passion to his legislative work.Sometimes, that passion serves him well, as in his work for Londonderry's elderly and veterans, and his strong commitment to volunteerism that earned him well deserved recognition from his community. Baldasaro was Londonderry's "Volunteer of the Year" in 2009.But an excess of passion can carry away the best of us. And such was the case when Baldasaro appeared before the House Judiciary Committee to testify in favor of a repeal of the gay marriage law.The law permitting same-sex couples in New Hampshire to marry passed the Legislature ...

Representative Al Baldasaro of Londonderry, New Hampshire
Representative Bates intends to gather with Petitioners from 9 of New Hampshire’s 10 Counties for a press conference at 1pm tomorrow Tuesday, January 5th, to announce the details of the initiative.

In a plea to would be supporters Representative Baldasaro asked for Londonderry Voters to, “Please contact me to Sign the Petition to Demand the right to VOTE in the definition of Marriage as an Amendment to the NH Constitution, whether you are for or against Gay Marriage you deserve the right to vote.”

Mack posts new signs; no opposing views offered
Nobody takes Mack up on his offer of equal space
Baldasaro said veterans like himself gave Mack the right to actually have the freedom of speech to express his views on signs.
"But Andy's Andy," Baldasaro said.
"I love Andy. He's like a brother, but the liberal brother I never had."
No fan of signs Published: August 20, 2009 04:35 pm
To the editor:
To my friend Andy Mack in reference to your letter to the Editor last week offering the Republicans a spot to rebut you by posting on the back of your signs where you scribbled your support of Obama's government take over on health insurance.
First I am not the Republican Chairman and if you stayed around Londonderry, you would have known that I have stepped down last year but I just might step back in, since you motivated me with your signs once again. Time will tell!
I, along with many Republicans, respected the wishes of the Old Home Day committee on ensuring that we continue to treat Old Home Day week as a gathering for friends and families to come together as one town, take care of our Non-Profits and not to be divided by your political liberal views. We republicans will not lower our self to feed into the disrespect you have shown to our community, so we will not post anything on your signs.
Andy, I have the utmost respect for the Mack family, who does allot for our community, and you as an
individual want too continue to divide us all with your political views posted on your land. Let's not forget that many acres of your land was not just Democrats who paid for your easement's but all the tax payers did through open space money. For your information at the Old Home Day Republican Booth, I have talked with Democrats, Independents, Republican (Americans) who all were disgusted with your signs which were posted on the parade route. What is a shame is some out-of-town visitors who shopped at your stand that day, did not like your signs and when they found out you (Andy Mack) put the signs up; they said they will never shop there again. The chair of OHD, Kathy Wagner asked you to wait until OHD were over and you refused where you divided the town once again as a business owner.
The good people of Londonderry are not stupid where they need to read your signs to understand Obama's socialized health insurance program but you have the right to express your freedom of speech. Mr. Mack, what would our town look like if we all followed your example and posted our political views on 4 X 8 sheets of plywood? I for one am glad that we do not follow your example!
In closing Andy, thanks to our veterans who gave some and especially those who gave all for giving you the freedoms to express your views. We may agree to disagree with your views but that is your right.
AL Baldasaro, State Representative
Al Baldasaro (R) Inc. October 16, 2008 01:29 pm
People can always count on me to clearly and honestly state where I stand on the issues — who I am and what I stand for, as my record speaks for itself.
I want to ensure New Hampshire stays a Live Free or Die state and that we maintain the NH Advantage. I'll continue to vote in protecting our quality of life. I don't support an income tax or a broad base tax. I'll continue to fight the Democrats on bringing back parental notification and fight for the protection of our children from the child molesters.
I support our 1st Amendment Rights and 2nd Amendment rights 100 percent of the time. I am a strong supporter of the Constitution and believe that marriage is between a man and a woman and the people of NH should vote up or down on a constitutional change. I will continue to push for smaller government and fight to keep government out of our pockets. I support less spending which means less taxes! By sending me back to Concord, it will ensure there is someone looking out for you, who is dedicated and will protect your wallet.

Al Baldasaro "Volunteer of the Year"
March 5, 2009
Monday night the Town Council awarded Citizen, Volunteer and Volunteer group of the year. Since the Londonderry Chamber closed operation in 2000 the council has given this award, normally at town meeting. The “Londonderry Tube” presentation is available here on-demand along with the transcript as presented by Kathy Wagner.
Many of you in this room and at home are not going to believe what I am about to say, but listen carefully to the items that this Londonderry resident has accomplished in a relatively short period of time.
This individual has run for local office several times, and because God has a sense of humor and does everything for a reason, his losses have been very lucky for our town. He continued his quest for public office and let me explain why the community of Londonderry was lucky that he did not win instantly; A volunteer is a person who takes or expresses a willingness to undertake a service. This individual puts their heart and soul into the community; they would give the shirt off their back if it was needed.
An original member of Alert, a member of the Old Home Day Committee, Member of Post 27 and the VFW, Vice Chairman of the Elder Affairs Committee. Member of the Workforce Housing Committee, for over four years — this individual has led the front for affordable housing for our seniors. During the Ice Storm he was always at the shelter or driving around to check on elderly residents who would not leave their homes because of their pets. Has helped Warm Homes, and worked at cover the common. A member of the first Londonderry Leadership course, never shy to exercises his opinions at town or school meetings and when the band left for Washington and needed a marine escort, this individual came through.
When finally winning his quest for State Representative, Al has never turned anyone away when they have asked him to sponsor a bill for them, called them to their home for a problem, and no matter what news story, always finds a way into the picture. School Funding, Historic Property legislation, and of course Veterans Legislation. If you are an eagle scout, a student or a citizen that has an award, expect to see Al with a proclamation in his hand, that is, if he is not at the airport meeting our troops coming home or distributing clothing to homeless veterans at Liberty House or working with Moore-Mart to get needed items to our troops in harm’s way.
Al is one of those people that will go the extra mile for anyone. It is with great pleasure that I present Volunteer of the Year to Al Baladasro.
