To The Daily Sun,
I am tired of the fear mongering, the perpetuation of myths, the half truths and downright lies. Never let the facts interfere with the mud slinging. If even just a little bit sticks, "Mission Accomplished." But I am most tired and disgusted by the candidates pretending to be independent, critical thinkers in public while pandering to the extremist right wing conservative ideology behind closed doors hoping the voters won't catch on. In the forefront of that behavior is Joe Kenney.
I will never forget the candidates forum last February at the Meredith Community Center how Joe went out of his way to disavow any connection with the Tea Party or any other ideology that might be losing favor with the mainstream independent voters. He was "Mr. Congeniality," promising to represent all the constituents in our district. That promise lasted just long enough for him to fool voters, get elected and once again, we were deprived of an excellent mind, a proven collaborator and problem solver, Mike Cryans, endorsed by Ray Burton's entire family. Well fool me once Mr. Kenney, shame on you, fool me twice Mr. Kenney, shame on me.
Joe Kenney's support of the extremist Tea Party, ALEC-driven agenda shows no respect for the intellect of the people of New Hampshire, their independence or their needs and belief in strong community loyalties. Even Chris Sununu voted for the Planned Parenthood contract Kenney opposes. I say "No" to Kenney's Tea Party ideology trying to take New Hampshire back to the 1950s. Those were great days with great opportunities and needs, but not appropriate to 2014.
It is time for real leaders and collaborative problem solvers like Mike Cryans to put skills, experience and common sense to use in moving New Hampshire forward and meeting the needs of New Hampshire people now and in the future. Please join me in voting for Mike Cryans for Executive Council and say "No" to the Tea Party agenda and the candidates who pretend to think for themselves.
