To The Daily Sun,
Paula Trombi's latest letter to the editor ends with "an informed citizenry is the best form of democracy." I agree with Paula.
So let's look at some of the things that state Sen. Jeanie Forrester has done for District 2:
— Sen. Forrester refused to let Gov. Hassan steal millions of dollars from the nursing homes. Fighting for our seniors, she made sure the staterestored funding to the disabled community, Meals on Wheels, Service Link, mental health, and 75 percent increase in funding for the heroin and opioid crisis in New Hampshire.
— Senator Forrester did vote for Medicaid Expansion two years ago (but I don't recall Paula thanking her then). This time around, she felt strongly that able-bodied, childless adults should be looking for work, doing community service or working in exchange for free health care.
As chairman of Senate Finance Committee, this is many of the thing she has done for New Hampshire.
— Finally, Paula must have forgotten that the governor not only supported the tax cuts, but asked for them to happen sooner than the original plan. And , by the way Paula, tax revenues are coming in way ahead of projection, so those tax cuts seem to be working and the governor is eager to spend it.
As a veteran, I have had the honor to attend a Day for Veterans that Sen. Forrester has a cookout and discuses the various issue's that veterans have. If you have never been, it is open to everyone. I hope you can make the next one.
Sen. Forrester said she was "for the people." There are 1.3 million people in New Hampshire.
