To The Daily Sun,
After having listened to the wild vitriol of some "up ballot" campaigns, we must be thrilled/relieved that Center Harbor and New Hampton have a winner as a candidate for representative to the General Court. Ruth Gulick of New Hampton, has filed for another effort to work for you and your neighbors. She has a clear history of looking after others.
In the 25 years she practiced law in our town, she never had fewer than three pro bono cases at a given time. She believed and still believes everyone's problems are serious problems and worthy of attention.
During her time in the Legislature, she collaborated with numerous others, holding that good ideas come from all over the political spectrum. Her particular focus was on families and children. She worked very hard to try to establish the training necessary to identify real sex abuse as opposed to mere allegation. She was helpful in reinstating a parental agreement for allocating college costs back into the marital stipulation. She was happy to see that the pre-O'Brian definition of truancy was re-established allowing schools and law enforcement to provide the safety net for kids at risk for delinquency.
Besides the ongoing attention to the opioid crisis and burying Northern Pass, Ruth would like to facilitate more connection between New Hampshire businesses and our schools. As usual, she would like to find creative painless ways of raising revenue for our state.
Essential when voting Tuesday, Nov. 8, we must vote not only the "up or down" ballot, but the whole ballot. As a practical matter people at the bottom of the ballot have a more direct impact on citizens' lives than those at the top. Moreover, it's much easier to get the "bottom people's" attention. Please vote for Ruth. She wants to work with you again.
