To The Daily Sun,
In 2010, I ran for the House of Representative as a fiscal conservative. As a business owner, I could see the problems we were having in Concord with the over-spending lead by the Democrats and a governor who could not hold the line even while raising taxes and fees. It took two years to clean up the $800 million hole the Democrats had created and lied about for four years. The job got done at the expense of a lot of needed projects.
It cost the Republicans the House and almost the Senate however, we did manage to bring in a small amount of money over and above the expenses. The last two years have not been fun watching the governor and the Democratic majority go right back to the same old yo-yo legislation and yo-yo spending. Raising taxes and spending more than is coming in. Like little children in the toy section or the candy section of Walmart, the "Give me, I want....." rhetoric goes on.
This year we have a chance to put some adults back in charge and get control of the budget by some who follow state spending like Charlie Arlinghouse, who say the state could be in the hole again another $200 million. That's why I am voting for some real proven conservative leaders. I will be casting my votes for Herb Vadney, former selectman from Meredith and a fellow House of Representative for the past two years. Also, George Hurt from Gilford, a former state representative and businessman with an impressive background of service on boards and commissions for the state. I am also supporting Russ Dumais, a local business man from Gilford with an impressive background of community service.
These are the kind of people we need to take the leadership roles in Concord and manage this states fiscal affairs. We do not need seat warmers in Concord we need leaders.
Remember to vote on Tuesday, Sept. 9.
State Rep. Robert Greemore
