To The Daily Sun,
Every seat matters, which is why it is so important for voters to start at the bottom of the ballot and check their choices going all the way to the top.
Study the issues, learn the position of each candidate. Voters in Grafton District 9 ( Alexandria, Ashland, Bridgewater, Bristol and Grafton) chose Republican Bob Hull over the Democrat Judy Wallick Frothingham, two years ago, in a close race for state representative. There was a recount, which is why we know many did not vote for the very important lower ballot races. These reps affect your local taxes.
Do you know, Bob Hull is a Free Stater posing as a Republican, "whose aim to diminish, if not fully eliminate the role of government in the in the lives of most Americans"?, according to the Union Leader of June 25.
Both Bob and fellow Republican incumbent, Jeff Shackett voted:
— Against Medicaid expansion (HB 1696) that provides health insurance for 50,000 Granite Staters.
— Against paid sick leave after six months employment (HB 600).
— Against raising the state minimum wage to $9.50 by 2019 (HB 1480).
— Against a fund for law enforcement to fight the opioid crisis (HB 1000) (Shackett did not vote and was not excused.)
I am supporting Judy Wallick Frothingham because I trust she is the candidate who will vote to provide services for those who need them in a way that is cost-efficient and most beneficial to all, because she values problem-slowing over partisanship. She will work for state budgets that keep property taxes low and for smart investments to keep New Hampshire attractive for business and families. And, she has the endorsement of the American Federations of teachers and the AFL-CIO.
