Lisa DiMartino understands challenges faced by small business

To The Daily Sun,

Lisa DiMartino is seeking re-election to the New Hampshire House of Representatives for Gilford and Meredith, and I support her.

Since leaving the House of Representatives in 2014, Lisa has volunteered many hours as an advocate in Concord on issues related to New Hampshire's health care system and developmental disabilities. Lisa currently serves on several action groups including, but not limited to, the Governor's Commission on Health Care Workforce, the Medical Care Advisory Committee, and the Governor's Commission on Disability.

Lisa worked on and testified before several legislative committees relating to House Bill 484 (rule changes to long-term care), House Bill 564 (prior authorization for medications through Managed Care companies), and Senate Bill 491 (rule changes to extend in-home services outside the home).

In addition to Lisa's commitment to and expertise in the health care field, she is a small-business owner. She understands the challenges small-business owners face and the importance of creating an environment which supports and promotes our local businesses.

Please re-elect Lisa DiMartino to the House of Representatives on Nov. 8.

You would rather elect a man who will destroy our way of life

To The Daily Sun,

The lunacy just never ends. The misogynist nonsense continues to spew forth from Don Ewing and Russ Wiles. You see, in their minds, the right can do no wrong. But the left, OMG, the left are enemies of all that is good and holy. We are out to destroy the country and purposely make people poor. "An assault on the very existence of our constitutional republic," wrote Wiles. Hogwash.

And speaking of holy, has John Demakowski been sipping too much ceremonial wine? Now he claims to know that God is against Hillary Clinton. All this was on one page of letters.

If you are worried about our Constitution, think of what a Trump presidency could do. How about if you could no longer write your long offensive letters for fear of being sued because Trump clamps down on freedom of the press? You are so worried about socialism, but we on the left are more concerned and so should every American about the fascist regime Trump would bring.

And Don, America is great and I am proud of it and want to keep it that way. You on the other hand do everything you can to tear it down out of irrational fear. It scares me to think how terrible things will be in this country if Trump were to be elected. The real Donald will emerge without filters and heaven help all who oppose him. You people are so full of hatred for women and a black president, you would rather elect a man who will destroy our way of life.

I pray to God Hilary wins on Nov. 8 to save America.
