To The Daily Sun,
I am running for one of the four seats in the N.H. House of Representatives from Gilford and Meredith, and I ask your readers and their friends and acquaintances for their vote on Nov. 8.
I am running for the House, together with Marc Abear, Herb Vadney and Glen Aldrich, for whom I also ask you to vote. All four of us have also been endorsed by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, so please vote for all four.
It has been reported that all four of our opponents have promised to try to expand state government and to raise our taxes, and at least two of our opponents have even tried to convince a prospective voter (who knew better!) that we need expanded gun laws to close the non-existent "gun show loophole."
In less than two weeks from now, we in New Hampshire will face choices crucial for the future of our state and country. The worst thing any of us can do is to stay home and fail to vote, no matter how difficult the choices may be. One of my favorite quotes, attributed to Edmund Burke, is "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men (and women) do nothing."
I refuse to do nothing.
My campaign slogan is "Restore The New Hampshire Advantage!" We do not hear much talk these days about The New Hampshire Advantage, because it no longer exists! Why? Insufficient jobs, high business regulation and taxes, very high utility costs, a faltering economy, and our hidden personal income tax in the form of the tax on interest and dividends (which falls mostly on seniors and savers), among other factors.
There is much work to be done (or perhaps undone) in Concord. Following is a summary setting forth some of my goals if elected.
I always make myself available by phone and/or email, and try to respond as quickly as possible. If elected, I promise to continue to do so.
I generally have an opinion on most everything, and I am not afraid to voice it and to try to stand up for what is right.
Again, I ask you to vote for me and to encourage your family, neighbors and friends in Meredith and Gilford to vote for me. I would be honored to represent and serve you in the General Court.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. Email me for a detailed list of my qualifications in addition to the positions I have set forth below.
— Maintain no personal income tax.
— Maintain no general sales tax.
— Repeal the taxes on interest and dividends (a stealth 5 percent state income tax that penalizes savers and seniors).
— Cut taxes and reduce the size and scope of government and government regulations which equals more jobs and a better economy for New Hampshire.
The lifeblood of government is your tax money and the only way to shrink government is to cut taxes and government programs.
— Protect our Second Amendment rights.
— Promote and expand school choice.
— Enact Right to Work.
— Protect local control of governmental functions.
— Fight for lower energy costs.
— Protect, respect and honor our first responders.
Return to biennial legislative sessions! "No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session." Mark Twain
