To The Daily Sun,
We've all seen the LOL or ROFLMAO acronyms in the text messages we receive from friends. I have to tell you I was laughing out loud and almost rolling on the floor laughing a month ago when I read Ms. Lisa DiMartino's chest-thumping Sept. 19 letter here in The Daily Sun.
Twice in the headline she used the word "I". In the body of the letter, she said either "I" or "me" no less than 20 times. I thought I was listening to a speech given by our esteemed president.
But Ms. DiMartino's letter went off the tracks when she only told you half the story. If Paul Harvey, the award-winning radio newsman, were still alive, I'm sure he might say, "And now you're about to know the rest of the story." as he presented to you the following facts that Ms. DiMartino conveniently left out of her letter.
In her letter, Lisa talked about how she moved in the "right direction" and "worked hard" as your representative. After reviewing the following list, you may say to yourself, "With representatives like Lisa DiMartino, who needs enemies?"
Don't be fooled by soft and gooey letters like Lisa's. The true measure of your representative is how he/she voted down in Concord. Look at the votes and then decide how each vote affects you on a personal level.
Tell me if Lisa's votes put more money in your bank account, helped your family make ends meet or if you lost more of your rights.
In 2013, Lisa voted to expand Obamacare in NH (HB-271), direct tax dollars to fund abortions (SB-194), divert money from Highway Fund so roads deteriorate faster (HB-617), raise electricity costs (HB-306), increase taxes on your home heating oil (HB-185), increase cigarette taxes (HB-659), increase taxes on fishing licenses (HB-2 Am.1219H), increase boat license fees (HB-411), further restrict law-abiding citizens from carrying concealed firearms, to ask Congress to restrict free speech (HCR-2), enable residents of other states to vote in NH (HB-119), and accept expired student IDs as proof of New Hampshire voter eligibility (HB-595).
I could go on and on and on with Lisa's voting record, but I feel the editor will not print the long list. If you want to see Lisa's poor voting record, just go here: http://go.timcarter/lisa
Here's what you need to know about Lisa DiMartino. Just about every new law she voted for did one of two things: It either took away more of your rights, or it took money out of your pocket. The bills she voted against at the Statehouse were ones where you and I would get back more of our rights or we could keep more of our money.
It's time for you to give Lisa her pink slip. I'm not going to vote for Lisa in November and if you do, I don't want to hear you whine or complain when your taxes go up, your car needs an alignment from the potholes in our roads, or when you finally realize that each day more and more and more of your rights have been taken away.
I'm voting for Glen Aldrich as my state representative because Glen wants to repeal laws that infringe on our rights. Glen really wants to shrink state government and Glen understands the Second Amendment.
I know Glen personally and I know he'll do everything possible to reduce taxes, eliminate waste in Concord and do whatever is possible to keep the government out of my daily life and yours, too.
