Will be great to have man of Dawson's character & experience in Concord

To The Daily Sun,

I'm hoping that you'll vote for Tom Dawson for state House representative. It would be wonderful to have a man of Tom's character and experience in Concord.

As many know, Tom is a former New Hampshire State Fire Marshall. Keeping us safe informs every decision he makes and every opinion he holds. Because of his experience he also knows how New Hampshire government works.

Tom is a leader who is effective at making things happen. He started the Fire Science Program at the community college in Laconia and was also instrumental in the development of the first New Hampshire state fire code.

As a longtime teacher, Tom did not rest on his laurels. He continued his own education till he received a Ph.D. That demonstrates both his tenacity and his commitment to his own learning. Besides being extremely knowledgeable, Tom is also a good listener and would be an able representative in Concord.

Trump is right; we need lower income tax rates & a simplified tax code

To The Daily Sun,

As a New Hampshire state representative, I've seen the impact the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton have had on our state's middle class and business community. The path to growth is not through the tax-and-spend policies Hillary Clinton is advocating.

Mr. Trump is right. We need lower taxes and a simplified tax code. I applaud his new tax bracket proposal of 12, 25 and 33 percent. There's no reason why the middle class should be forced to pay for a high-priced accountant in order to reduce their tax burden.

With the Granite State having the third highest energy costs in the continental United States, small businesses need all the capital they can get. Mr. Trump's proposal to reduce the corporate tax rate to 15 percent, will give small business owners the capital they need to reinvest in and expand their business. If there was ever a time to not raise taxes on the middle class and small businesses, that time is now.

I hope you will join me in voting for Donald Trump on Nov. 8.
