Need to learn of threat to property rights from workforce housing

To The Daily Sun,

Once again the Workforce Housing Law is rearing its ugly head, this time in Sanbornton. This intrusive law is hanging over the head of every town in the state, and most town boards, our own included, try to subdue it with band-aids instead of working with their elected representatives and senators to get rid of a terrible law that includes price fixing as a component.

Some towns, such as Bow, Rindge and Goffstown, are at least fighting back against this federal and state government overreach into how we run our towns by refusing federal funds. With the help locally of the Lakes Region Planning Commission (a group of people who have access to federal money without first going through Concord), unelected people are trying to tell us how we will live, build, travel, use power and deal with water in the name of fighting so-called man-made climate change.

This needs to stop in order to preserve our freedoms and property rights, things that the Granite State Future program sees as an obstacle to their plans.

There will be an informational meeting at the Sanbornton Library on Thursday night, May 8, at 7 p.m. There will also be a public meeting on Saturday, the 10th, at 10 a.m., also in Sanbornton. Citizens need to learn about threats to their property rights through the Workforce Housing Law and other rules, regulations and laws coming down from the state and federal government, and yes, even the U.N.

The information is out there if town officials all over the state will take the time to research it, as many citizens have. They shouldn't be offended when citizens bring this information to them. They should be grateful as it will help them do their jobs and protect the New Hampshire way of life.
