To The Daily Sun,
This letter is in response to the negative piece of campaign literature that I found in my mail box recently. I would like to take the time to set the record straight. In this manner voters may make an informed decision on Nov. 4.
First and foremost, I am not in any way involved with the Koch brothers, nor will I be if elected. My emphasis in my election campaign is to be positive and accentuate strengthening our communities. I want to empower our rural towns with the necessary means to combat unwanted intrusion from those who wish to change our charming New England character. This includes Northern Pass and the industrial wind farms in the Newfound-Cardigan area that would have a disastrous effect on our scenic beauty.
What is troublesome for me is the two candidates who are behind this mailing are my neighbors in Grafton. They both know me and they should know better. In my 12 years as selectman I have continually worked toward improving education, health care accessibility, and fairness in the way town government treats its citizens. I intend to continue this work in the state House.
I am proud of the fact that our little town of Grafton is fielding five candidates for the state House. Political diversity is the stuff of which our democracy is made. My door is open to all, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians or anybody with views they wish to discuss. This year, in fact, my opponent Catherine Mulholland was at my house enjoying some of my homemade borscht while discussing town issues.
What we need in Concord is someone who listens to all and works for all, not someone who operates in a Democratic Party bubble and tows the party line, as does my opponent. District 17 deserves better than that. I am the person our district needs.
That is why I am asking for your vote on Nov. 4.
Selectman, Town of Grafton
Republican Candidate Grafton House District 17
