Voting for the Pigs

picture of pigs

While this incentive may seem ludicrous now, i​n the 1890 Congressional race in New Hampshire, citizens who voted for a particular candidate were given a live pig. ​The ​sentiment​ behind ​the gift pig​ ​in 1890 ​is the same ​one that continues​ to motivate political ​candidates today: encouraging voters to leave the sty and come to the polls.

Hollis Pipeline Update

Hollis Selectmen were put on notice in Spring that Kinder Morgan, a subsidiary of Tennessee Gas, is planning to run a lateral gas line from Northern Massachusetts into the southwest corner of Hollis traversing the entire town, to end up at the northeast border with Merrimack. Since May, local individuals and groups like the Hollis Conservation Commission, the Land Protection Study Committee and the Trustees of Beaver Brook, along with our Town Selectmen, have been seeking input and advice from legal counsel and outside sources, to determine a reasonable course of action to protect our lovely town.

Report on Apportionment

Keep up to date on Apportionment Review Committee news at www.sau41.org/hbcsb-home.

Bill Matthews gave a presentation on apportionment at the Hollis Democrats monthly meeting on May 27, 2014. Matthews is a citizen representative to the Apportionment Review Committee, which was formed by the Hollis Brookline Cooperative School Board after the town votes of March 2014. Apportionment, the division of the tax load between the two towns of the Cooperative School District, was a contentious topic at the March meetings. The Apportionment Review Committee was formed to investigate the issues and make a recommendation to the Cooperative School Board.
