To The Daily Sun,
On June 1, I filed to run for one of the four state House of Representative seats covering District 2 for Belknap County — the towns of Gilford and Meredith.
Why do I run?
I have many ideas about our state government that I will address in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, I hereby formally pledge the following:
1. I will vigorously oppose and seek to block any attempts to impose a personal income tax in our state.
2. I will vigorously oppose and seek to block any attempts to impose a broad-based sales tax in our state.
3. I will propose and vigorously seek to repeal our state's tax on interest and dividends.
In considering the state candidates who seek your support, ask them if they will take the same "Enhanced Tax Pledge" that I have now taken.
The lifeblood of any government and its numerous and various regulatory agencies is our taxes, and I believe the only way to curtail the size and scope of our state government and its regulations is to reduce our taxes.
Government is not the solution to every problem (real or invented) facing us. Government itself is often the cause of our problems.
I ask for your support and vote, and I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible, and discussing the critical issues we face, in the coming weeks.
