To the Editor,
When I first ran for state representative two years ago, I promised the people of Goffstown that I would work to ensure responsible spending, promote liberty, and vote with an eye towards the future of our state and bolstering the NH Advantage. I’m glad to say that I was able to deliver on those promises, and though we didn’t achieve everything I or many republicans had hoped, 2016 sees New Hampshire citizens freer and it’s budget more fiscally sound than in 2014.
The 2016 election brings with it a new set of issues, along with the old ones. The increase in opiate addiction has scared some into throwing millions of dollars at hiding the problem, when level headed and sensible investment in treatment and prevention are what the situation calls for. Regarding the budget, conservative fiscal leadership has led to a $100 million budget surplus, yet overspending by various executive departments (most notably DHHS), have whittled away at that surplus. New Hampshire needs fiscally conservative legislators to avoid the shady double spending that left New Hampshire’s budget hundreds of millions of dollars in the hole in FY 2009-2010.
Then there are the questions that come up every year. Gun control, income tax, sales tax, limiting free speech, a $16+/hr minimum wage increase, common core, expanding medicare, and a host of unnecessary other taxes, regulations and spending. On each and every one of these, Goffstown deserves a strong conservative voice to say “NO!” to higher taxes, more regulation, and infringements on your rights. For the past two years, I’ve been proud to be that voice, and if you re-elect me, I’ll continue to be that voice.
I ask for your vote in the Republican Primary on Tuesday, Sept 13th.
At your service,
