To The Daily Sun,
According to Article I of the New Hampshire Constitution: "When men enter into a state of society, they surrender up some of their natural rights to that society, in order to insure the protection of others." These words are meant to set the tone for a state government that is created to serve the common good.
All of us can remember a time when state representative were proud of the services, funding and assistance they brought to the voters, towns and businesses in their districts. Today, my incumbent opponents appear to have no philosophical interest or desire to use their office in serving the common good by helping our people or businesses succeed. Apparently, it's just not their job anymore.
First, they say we should cut back on the role of government. Next, they claim government incompetence and waste ... and then their conclusion: We shouldn't even try to repair our local roads, provide inexpensive health care, protect women's rights or encourage business.
It's time that we elect reps who speak and work for the people and towns of their districts. I hope to be such a representative. Our officials should only be rewarded with re-election for bringing services and assistance from Concord to our districts.
