To The Daily Sun,
Those of us fortunate enough to live in New Hampshire know that we are surrounded by wildlife. Whether we hunt, fish, photograph, or simply view our wild neighbors, we count on their continued protection for ourselves and future generations.
We need strong leaders like Carol Shea-Porter in Congress to establish and defend policies for the preservation of wildlife. During her three terms in the U.S. House Shea-Porter served on the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs. She was the sponsor or co-sponsor of over 20 bills designed to improve the management of the ocean, wilderness and other critical wildlife habitat.
Carol's work as a wildlife advocate has earned her a rating of 100 percent from the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund and endorsement by the Ocean Champions. Her work for the welfare of domestic animals earned her a rating of 100 percent from the Humane Society Legislative Fund in each of her three terms.
Her opponent, Frank Guinta, on the other hand, has voted to reduce funding for the Endangered Species Act and remove two animals from the list of endangered species. His anti-environmental efforts earned ratings of 0 percent from both the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund and the Sierra Club-Positions on Clean Water.
Please join me in voting to return Carol Shea-Porter to Congress where she can resume her work in maintaining and protecting our vital natural resources.
