Enough debt

To all the socialists out there who are cheering for our increased debt over the last few days. Is there ever going to be a ceiling? Call it $20 trillion or $25 trillion or $30 trillion — will it ever be enough? It seems that kicking the can has become the norm for both parties but there has to be a limit somewhere. Or is that limit only important when the other party is in office? Also before we comment on Bush and Reagan — who are irrelevant at this point — my question is simply asked from this point forward. How much more debt do we need?

Kannan

Mayor Stephen Zanni, Al DiNuccio, and Michael Gagliardi couldn’t dig up anything worse about Councilor Jennifer Kannan than that she didn’t graduate with her class. A 16- or 17-year-old doesn’t think about their future but Ms. Kannan certainly made something of herself. As a mother, grandmother, a former business owner, Realtor, councilor, and mayoral candidate, she shows how far she has come from those days as a teenager. She may not have graduated with her class but she has been very successful. She has several ideas about how to bring business to Methuen because “Methuen Can Be Better” but considering her opponent’s habit of taking credit from others, she is keeping many of her ideas out of the press. She will be a great mayor and deserves your vote.

Shameful

I Just finished reading the article in the Sunday Eagle-Tribune, regarding that Jennifer Kannan generously donated $250 she received from the Laborers International Local 175 to the Methuen YMCA. Business Manager Michael Gagliardi should really hang his head in shame and in my opinion should be disbarred from his position. What type of person does such a cruel and uncalled for act as he displayed at the annual pancake breakfast? Mayor Zanni must be so proud of his campaign friend.
