To The Daily Sun,
The Lakes Region TEA Party would like to thank state Sen. Jeanie Forrester, Rich Ashooh, Norman Silber, and Luke Freudenberg for speaking and answering questions at our August meeting.
Sen. Forrester, candidate for governor, told of her commitment to make government serve the people. She believes government must perform its appropriate functions effectively and efficiently. As a senator she has represented her constituents even when it meant going against her party. She fought for an energy policy that benefits New Hampshire, for nursing home funding, for effective actions against our illegal drug problem, and against wasteful spending like the proposed high speed rail. For more information about Sen. Forrester's plans to combat drugs, for healthcare, for a growing economy, etc., see: http://jeanieforgovernor.com/
Rich Ashooh, candidate for Congress — challenging Congressman Guinta, spoke of his national security background, his commitment to fiscal responsibility, his opposition to illegal immigration and sanctuary cities, his opposition to the Iran deal which gives the number one state sponsor of terrorism billions of dollars and enables them to get nuclear weapons and ICBMs. Ashooh supports the Second Amendment and believes that we don't have a gun law problem, but we do have a problem because of the lack of enforcement of our existing gun laws. For more information about Ashooh's policies, see: https://ashoohforcongress.com/
Norman Silber, candidate for state representative for Gilford and Meredith, talked about his commitment to enabling a growing economy that provides the jobs and opportunities that enable our citizens to prosper. He supports school choice, enforcement of our immigration laws, and clarification of our voter laws to ensure that every legitimate voter can vote without their vote being negated by an illegal voter. For more information on some of Silber's positions see: http://www.lfda.org/candidate/norman-silber#
Luke Freudenberg, candidate for Carroll County Sheriff, believes illegal drugs are the key issue of our time. Winning the war against illegal drugs will be the major focus of his term as sheriff. He believes that this issue, that claims so many lives, isn't getting the focus in Carroll County that it deserves. Freudenberg believes that his education, employment at FEMA, and experience as a selectman and business owner qualify him and enable him to coordinate effectively with the various agencies, community stakeholders, and law enforcement agencies to combat the drug problem and handle other Sheriff responsibilities.

The TEA Party meeting attendees enjoyed hearing from these candidates and having the opportunity to get their questions answered. The Lakes Region TEA Party meetings are open to people wishing to listen and participate in Q&As, and our discussions.
