To The Daily Sun,
I'm voting to elect Ruthie Gulick to the state House of Representatives from Center Harbor and New Hampton.
A state rep must be:
— A constituent ombudsmen for his or her district. He or she must recognize that all the diverse and, at times, contradictory views need to be heard and attended to.
— A liaison with and between local, county, and state elective representatives and their administrators. He or she needs to be assisting with the facilitation of a coordinated private and public effort for identifying and addressing complex and ambiguous issues.
— An effective and efficient steward of both the public interest and our public goods. Someone who thinks of consequences, not simply one voting to reduce revenues and to expect more for less. He or she must possess the wisdom and prudence to recognize what we need to be safe and secure now, while systematically investing in future.
For 45 years Ruthie has been active, creative and engaged citizen of New Hampton. As a general practitioner of law she has served a widely diverse set of clients in various trying and complex situations. And as a mother and grandmother, she understands the first hand challenges and rewards of raising a family. Therefore, I feel that Ruthie has the experience, knowledge, and temperament to be a really good state rep.
Please vote for Ruthie on Tuesday to assure yourself a voice in Concord.
