With you vote, I'll be able to continue work for Sandbornton & Tilton

To The Daily Sun,

Throughout my campaign for state representative, I have focused on sharing my positive outlook for our state with the voters of Sanbornton and Tilton (Belknap County District 4). I have spent more than 30 years working as a volunteer legislator in Concord, and I respectfully ask for your vote to continue to represent you for another term.

Over the last two years, we have been working on sound and sensible policies that will move New Hampshire forward, like helping our economy through reducing taxes and passing a balanced state budget with no new taxes or fees. We need to continue these efforts to ensure the long-term fiscal health of our state and continue to grow our economy.

My opponents have tried to distort my record, but rest assured I will continue to stand up for the people of Sanbornton and Tilton, always voting in the best interests of our communities, families, and taxpayers. I care deeply about the well-being of New Hampshire and its people.

We have lots of hard work ahead, including finding solutions to our drug crisis, making higher education and health care more affordable, keeping taxes low, and protecting gun owners' rights.

Thank you to all of the residents of Sanbornton and Tilton for discussing with me the important issues our state and our communities are facing. With your vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8, I will be able to continue my work on your behalf.

State Rep. Dennis Fields

Americans will be much less safe under a President Clinton

To The Daily Sun,

To be blunt, electing Hillary Clinton president will get more American children, teens, women, and men killed by illegal aliens, unvetted refugees/immigrants, and other criminals.

Illegal aliens cause the deaths of about 20,000 Americans annually. They murder about 400 to 500 Americans annually, and they bring the drugs causing almost half of our annual drug overdose deaths (46,471 in 2013). Illegal aliens also commit a disproportionate number of rapes, robberies, assaults and accidents causing injuries and deaths.

Hillary, Obama, and the Washington establishment benefit from illegal immigration, they won't stop it. Elect Hillary and many thousands of Americans will needlessly die annually. Only Trump will fight to close the border, stop illegal immigration, and save lives.

Fortunately few terrorist attacks happen here, but the number of terrorist plots and terrorist caused deaths (44 in 2015, at least 49 this year) has been increasing. ISIS intends to include terrorists and agitators, to radicalize American Muslims, among refugees and immigrants.

Hillary promises to allow five times more of these refugees than the FBI director says cannot be vetted to reliably exclude terrorists. Trump promises to provide safe zones so refugees can live in peace in their own countries and not let people come here unless they can be reliably vetted to exclude terrorists.

Although New York City Mayor Giuliani showed that good policing can reduce all crimes, including murders, Democratic Party-controlled cities don't seem interested in stopping criminals.

Criminals keep people in fear and poverty, making people dependent on government; this generates the votes that keep Democrats in power.

This may explain why Democrats are so soft on criminals. Democrats help criminals avoid prosecution and conviction, fight for reduced sentences and early release from prison, support "Sanctuary Cities" which protect illegal alien criminals from deportation, opposed Kate's Law which would have locked up criminal illegal aliens who return after being deported, and release thousands of criminal illegal aliens in the US allowing all these criminals to continue preying on law-abiding citizens.

After allowing criminals to terrify many neighborhoods, and after encouraging radical and violent groups like Black Lives Matter, President Obama, Hillary, and other leftists support even stricter gun laws which already keep many law-abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves.

Democrat policies get law-abiding people killed.

Americans will be much less safe under a President Hillary Clinton. Only Trump will strictly enforce our laws and enact policies to protect law-abiding people from criminals and terrorists. Vote for Donald Trump.
