CONCORD — Only one member of the Belknap County Delegation — all of whom are Republicans — voted against the so-called "right-to-work" bill which carried the New Hampshire House of Representatives this week by a vote of 149 to 146.
Representative Dennis Fields of Sanbornton alone voted against the measure, which was endorsed by 13 of his colleagues — Representatives Glen Aldrich, Russ Dumais and George Hurt of Gilford, Robert Fisher, Bob Luther, Peter Spanos and Frank Tilton of Laconia, Valerie Fraser of New Hampton, Ray Howard and Peter Varney of Alton, Shari LeBreche and Michael Sylvia of Belmont, and Herb Vadney of Meredith.
Representatives Don Flanders of Laconia, Brian Gallagher of Sanbornton and David Ruseell of Gilmanton did not vote.
Earlier in the session a similar bill failed in the New Hampshire Senate when its 24 members deadlocked 12 to 12.
