Free intern for Democratic Park accuses well-respected businessman?

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,
I am writing in response to college student and New Hampshire Democrat Party Intern Kyle Middleton's letter. Kyle opened his letter with the snarky question of "Does George Hurt read his own letters?" Well Kyle, I believe the appropriate question for me to ask is, did YOU read George Hurt's letter? Mr. Hurt was criticizing Senator Andrew Hosmer for his indefensible refusal to use a portion of the surplus to fund the largely depleted Rainy Day Fund ("RDF"), as required by law. He pointed out that Democratic governors have made large withdrawals from this fund, driving home the fact that even Democrats see the necessity of this fund. Young Kyle's letter only helps prove Mr. Hurt's point. Well done Kyle, I hope you'll be contacting Senator Hosmer encouraging him to vote to apply part of the surplus to the RDF.
The writer then regurgitated long discredited Democrat talking points. For example: Former Governor Shaheen, during her regime, withdrew more money from the RDF then was deposited. While Governor Lynch withdrew $80M, only to cover the Democrat's extremely bloated budget.
I find it comical that a bright young man who is willing to work for FREE as an intern for the N.H. Democrat party is accusing a well-respected pragmatic businessman such as George Hurt of "trying to score political points".
Now, Mr. Middleton, I wish you the best in your education and future, but please do YOUR OWN research before you put your name on another letter.

Kevin Leandro
