To The Daily Sun,
Just a few days to go until the elections. Finally!
I have written numerous letters these past few weeks so voters can learn of my positions and how I intend to represent them in Concord. I am running for state representative for Carroll County District 4 which encompasses the towns of Moultonborough, Tuftonboro and Sandwich.
I am driven in seeking this office to represent all the citizens of my district. Putting people first, not political ideology. One of our current legislators believes that extreme partisanship is the way to lead New Hampshire forward. I do not. Concord needs people that will listen to all points of view and not dismiss those that don't agree with theirs. The job title after all is Representative. I interpret that quite literally.
We cannot have two more years of bickering and fighting by legislators that refuse to work effectively and reasonably, whether in Concord or Ossipee, and who put ideology and partisanship ahead of their constituents.
Glenn Cordelli has brought four years of rancor, extremism and an unwillingness to work with others to solve problems. I offer a proven record of collaboration, open mindedness, and common sense leadership.
I am proud as a selectman in Moultonborough that I have been able to put aside my personal beliefs and take positions that best represent the town. That is what has been missing in Concord. A good idea is still a good idea no matter which party offers it.
I believe in common sense leadership and being a reasonable person in solving issues. I won't dig my heals in and reject any form of compromise as some do when they let ideology and partisanship rule their every decision.
For the record, I will oppose any broad based sales or income tax.
A New Hampshire House legislator should not run for this office to impose their ideology and personal beliefs on constituents, nor to score points within wings in their party or outside organizations. I am running for this office to actually work for you and to solve our very real problems.
I respectfully ask for your vote on Nov. 8 to elect a state representative that will truly represent all constituents.
