|Putting Our Money Where Our Mouth is, New Hampshire's Priorities and Budget
--a panel discussion and community conversation
Claremont: Sugar River Valley Regional Technical Center, CCTV Studio
October 14, 7-8:30 p.m

Rep. Raymond Gagnon, former Claremont mayor, moderator
Our state and local budgets are agreements we reach about what is most important to us and how we pay for it.
But it's getting harder and harder to put our money where our mouth is. Our next budget deficit could be $600 million. Decisions at the state level affect us at the local level. Reductions here can mean increases there.
Saving now might cost more later. Today's decisions will ripple out for years to come. We're resourceful in New Hampshire, though; we can face the facts and discuss our options. At these forums, experts will explain the state budget and how it affects local budgets and school funding. They will connect the dots between revenue and services, exploring issues like the courts and corrections; health care, including mental health care; the state retirement system; and the many state programs that invest in people. Panelists will review solution options and take your questions. Come ask yours!

Lost in Woonsocket introduces viewers to Normand Cartier. Living in a tent in the woods, suffering from addiction and estranged from his family for over 13 years, Cartier had all but given up hope of recovery. The film crew from the award winning A&E television series Random 1 found Cartier and offered him the chance for treatment, rehabilitation and a fresh start with his family. Originally slated to air on the television show, the resulting footage and concept proved much larger than any show could grasp. Lost in Woonsocket was born.'
