To The Daily Sun,
We are all aware of the opiod crisis in this country and how critical it has become in our State of New Hampshire. The problem is overwhelming and now even dangerous for emergency personnel, and the human toll on society is enormous. Like everyone, I’d like to see a concrete, effective approach to attacking the problem. I’m not personally a fan of big government, but when government effectively regulates for the common good, it is serving us as we elected people to do. Hopefully you’ve taken time to read Vincent Paul Migliore’s recently offered root-cause solution to oipiod crisis on just such an approach. He cites examples of other states that are finding success with effective prescription drug monitoring plans that work in concert with the medical and pharmacy professionals. To me, his articulation and understanding of the problem proves he will work tirelessly to find ways for our state to implement monitoring that will also work for New Hampshire.
Electing Vincent on September 5 will put a strong, committed, and proven leader in Concord. He will bring a focus to issues — just like his critical thinking on the opiod crisis — on education, Northern pass and economic growth. He understands what the state representative scope of authority is and doesn’t make promises on issues that are outside that domain. In other words, he’ll put his efforts on issues where something can and should be done, with leadership at the state level. Vincent Paul Migliore has a proven 10 year track record on the Newfound School Board, including tenure as chairman. During that decade, he was at the forefront in bringing fiscal responsibility and accountability to our schools but with the sensitivity to improving student outcomes at a fair cost to taxpayers.
Please cast a vote for Vincent Migliori on September 5, the day after Labor Day — an appropriate day to elect someone who will work for *us,* and not his own personal gain.
Dr. Jerry OConnor
