To The Daily Sun,
Where is Bob Hull?
Robert Hull (Libertarian), who ran under the Republican ticket, had bought his votes through advertising, is hiding somewhere. Hull spent $7,000 in advertising to buy 500 votes from Republicans who "bought a product without ever seeing it," from the five towns in lower Grafton County and nobody even knows what he stands for. The Republican Party doesn't know where he is. Even after his victory in the Primary, Hull still has not reached out the party.
So who is this famous vote-getter that no one has met? He is yet to get on the agenda for the selectboards in Ashland, Alexandra, Bridgewater and Bristol, to introduce himself. In fact out of the eight candidates (six were from the town of Grafton) for Districts 9 and floterial 17, all these selectboards have been seeing at their regular meetings to date, is me.
Introducing yourself to local government shows that you are willing to step up to take on the responsibility of proper chain-of-command representation for your district to Concord and County. Introducing yourself and listening to your constituents will give you an idea on how to represent your district and how to vote in Concord. Mr. Hull, why are you hiding from your local government officials? What is it that you hope to accomplish for your constituents, whoever they are? Are you going to ignore all of your constituents for the next two years while you sponge a seat in the House?
The only thing I know for sure about Mr. Hull is that he lives at 12 Liberty Lane in Grafton with eight, or 10, or 20 other people who use that address for voter registration. Tim Condon who challenged Jeanie Forrester for State Senate District 2 is also listed at that same address. Condon moved from Florida to New Hampshire for the Free State Project and founded the now defunct, New Hampshire Legal Rights Foundation with Bill O'Brien former speaker of the House. Condon and O'Brien were attorneys in a lawsuit against Grafton County brought by Hull, that delayed the construction of the new county jail. Is Hull on his way to Concord with the hopes of delaying more state jobs? Mr. Hull, what kind of delegate will you be to Grafton County, for District 9, now that you have tried to sue the county?
This gets even better, on Sept.15 the Grafton county GOP had a convention and Tim Condon who lost to Jeanie Forrester, showed up to announce Bob Hull. Is Condon going to show up in Concord to be sworn in for Hull, too? Does Hull even exist? It's apparent that Hull wants nothing to do with the Republican Party or our government, or you. Do you think that this kind of irresponsible behavior is worthy of your vote?
The Attorney General has an ongoing investigation, which began in 2013, into voter fraud concerning on all the people who are supposed to live at 12 Liberty Lane. As of Aug. 27, there are a reported 10 registered voters using that address.
I know Hull is a free-stater (Libertarian) who would like to do away with the U.S. Constitution, the same Constitution I had held up my right hand and sworn an oath to defend, both foreign and domestic, when I joined the Navy. I have served five tours to the Middle East, and I refuse to stand by while people are willing to vote someone into office, who would threaten what all of us veterans had sworn to defend. None of us should stand by.
So this sounds like sour grapes from the guy who lost his bid for the Primary. I would not mind If I had lost to someone who would do the better job. I'd even endorse that person. But with the ongoing absence of Hull refusing to make contact with anyone in this district, and why he wants the House seat so badly that he spent $7,000 for, it leaves me feeling dismayed that I will not have the opportunity to represent the good people that I was ready to take on the responsibility of representing in this district, who deserve common-sense, true representation, not irresponsible behavior.
If advertising is all people want to use to elect state legislators then 2016 is right around the corner. What a way to win a vote.
If you feel that you would like to see a representative who is willing to work for your best interest 24/7, willing to meet and greet, willing to answer the phone, than write me in on Nov. 4. I am prepared to take on the job of bringing information back from Concord to the local elected officials and take the needs of my constituents back down to Concord. The job of state representative is not a part-time job and I will not treat It as such.
We have some major issues confronting us in this state: finances, jobs/economy, business regulatory environment, health care, education, state retirement system, right-to-work, Common Core, dedicated fund raiding, just to name a few. We need responsible people with the passion to resolve these issues.
I will uphold that responsibility. I will not shun or hide from my constituents. Don't let Grafton county become a Libertarian Free State. Don't waste your vote on a Libertarian mystery candidate.
Eric T. Rottenecker
Write-in candidate (R)
Grafton Dist. 9
