I will work only for the benefit of those I was elected to serve

To The Daily Sun,

I am running for one of two seats in the New Hampshire House to represent Moultonborough, Sandwich and Tuftonboro to break the gridlock that has plagued our county and our great state. There is a hard-core group of incumbents that absolutely refuses to even consider working together with their fellow representatives, even from their own party.

By example, one of my opponents, Glenn Cordelli was one of 43 House reps who signed a letter demanding that current Speaker Jasper support the Republican caucus nominee for House speaker and reject any support from Democrats or even other Republicans. That is not how we move New Hampshire forward and is not responsible leadership. These 43 are not the majority of Republicans in the House, but do represent the most extreme wing of the party and outside groups that are far more interested in promoting an ideology rather than properly representing you. When they refuse to even work with members of their own party, how can they possibly be effective legislators?

I will work collaboratively at all levels and only for the benefit of those I was elected to serve. Please vote for Paul Punturieri and my colleague Gary Chehames for New Hampshire House on Nov. 8 to bring common sense and reasonable leadership back to Concord.

Paul Punturieri

Come hear Norman Silber & Marc Abear at TEA Party meeting

To The Daily Sun,

The Lakes Region TEA Party is pleased to announce the speakers at its Oct. 19, meeting: Norman Silber, who will talk about the U.S. Supreme Court, and Marc Abear, who will report about the recent Convention of States simulation.

Attorney Norman Silber, a member of The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies, will describe the dynamics of the court, the nomination and confirmation process, the shifting balance of the court, and how the results of the presidential election will affect Americans for decades. Copies of the U.S. Constitution will be available.

The authors of the U.S. Constitution knew that Congress would never propose amendments to the Constitution to fix Congress's own abuses. Thus, they provided authority for the states to hold a convention for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution. Marc Abear will report on the lessons from the recent simulated Convention of States meeting. Marc Abear is a fighter for constitutional government and a candidate for state representative from Meredith and Gilford.

The Lakes Region TEA Party meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Moultonborough Library, 4 Holland St. The public is invited to attend to listen, learn, and participate in our discussions.

Don Ewing
