Kathy Rago is one candidate who believes in life, not abortion

To The Daily Sun,
As voting day approaches, remember that life is most important. Even for local offices, a pro-life candidate is crucial, because the more people in political positions that are pro-life, the more likely that pro-life ideas will win in the end.

Kathy Rago is one who believes in life, not abortion. Andrew Hosmer has accepted Planned Parenthood funds and voted in February to establish buffer zones around abortion clinics.

Gilmanton & Alton will do better when all voices are heard

To The Daily Sun,

I have lived in Gilmanton for 17 years and in New Hampshire for 35 years. I am a retired public school teacher. Belknap County House District 5 has two State Representatives for the towns of Alton and Gilmanton. I want to be one of those representatives for our communities. I believe I can bring a fresh perspective to the state House and will work to find practical and balanced solutions for our challenges.

Communications with my constituents will be a top priority. I will ask you to tell me what are your concerns and will keep you informed of the work I am doing on your behalf. I will be an advocate for Gilmanton and Alton.

New Hampshire's laws should support a healthy growing middle class. The closer we get to that goal, the better it will sustain our economy and be for all families. It is important to strike the right balance between finding sources of revenue that support our towns — schools, municipal functions, farms and businesses — and reducing the burden of high property taxes.

Gilmanton and Alton will do better when the voices of all constituents are heard — women, men, Republicans, and Democrats. The candidates for District 5 represent those diverse voices. My hope is that District 5 will send to Concord a team that mirrors our population. That opportunity is here with the 2014 election. We have a chance to be exceptional.

I want to be a member of that team. I will appreciate your vote on Nov. 4.

If you vote in Gilford or Meredith, Russ Dumais is your best choice

To The Daily Sun,

Russ Dumais is no stranger to the workings of government. He served Gilford well during his tenure as one the town's selectmen. He has been a local businessman for most of his adult life. He knows what businesses need to succeed and he can work with others to bring back the New Hampshire advantage. he believes that the state should not spend money that it doesn't have. He believes that his common sense approach to government is needed on a state and county level.

I agree; in Gilford and Meredith, he should be your choice for state representative on November 4.

Sen. Andrews Hosmer has natural ability to find a win-win solution

To The Daily Sun,

I have worked with Andrew Hosmer in his family business for three years now and have witnessed Andrew's natural ability to find a win/win result for his employees and customers. I'm not surprised to hear such positive reviews about Senator Hosmer's work in his first term. His willingness to work with Democrats, Republicans and Independents demonstrates his commitment to the people of District 7.

His common-sense approach was evident when his very first piece of legislation was to pass the expanded R & D (research and development) tax credit benefiting our local employers. He worked with the Republicans to pass a balanced budget as required by New Hampshire's Constitution. His commitment to improving our roads and bridges makes New Hampshire a better place to do business. We're voting for Sen. Andrew Hosmer.

One phone call to Rep. Ruth Gullick & things happened immediately

To The Daily Sun,

We moved to Center Harbor from Long Island, N.Y., a little over two years ago. It was the best thing we ever did. One of the first things I tried to do was have the speed limit reduced in front of our house.

We opened The Edge, a small retail shop on the property, featuring local artisans. It seemed dangerous to enter and exit the driveway with traffic speeding by at 55 mph. After two years of phone calls and emails, and even a site inspection, no change was agreed to.

One phone call to our state representative, Ruth Gulick, and things started to happen immediately. In less than a month, the speed limit is now 35 mph.

I lean to the right politically, but Ruth stepped up to the plate and hit it out of the park. She is a wonderful person who cares about her constituents and gets things done.

Ruth Gulick gets my vote.
