Thank you for all those who came out and voted in the primary! As you know, there are two seats for Ward 7, District 14. For the general election, please make sure you vote Republican for November 6th! That would be for myself and Roland Six. Help keep our state moving forward under the leadership of Governor Sununu.
I was just endorsed by the NRA. In the letter I received it states:
"Congratulations! I am pleased to announce your NRA-PVF "AQ" rating and endorsement for the 2016 New Hampshire General Election. We appreciate your enthusiasm for the Second Amendment and the attention to firearm-related issues during your candidacy.
Our members will interpret your "AQ" rating and endorsement by the National Rifle Association-Political Victory Fund as being a pro-gun/pro-hunting candidate who supports the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Please feel free to communicate your rating and endorsement to the voters in your district as you see fit."
It should be noted that my incumbent opposition got the following rating (Hillsborough 14):
(D) Mary C. Freitas D
(D) Mary Heath D
Have finished canvassing most streets in my ward! Coming down to the home stretch. If you live on a busy street in Ward 7 and would like a lawn sign, please message me on FB. Only have a few left! They are nice looking (red, white and blue), and would get the word out. Thanks for all your support!
Notes from the Trail 10/5/2016
Gorgeous day to go knocking on doors in Manchester today! Got to meet some more awesome voters. Later, was on the Ed and Joe Show with my Ward 6's fellow Republican Rep. Larry Gagne (vote for him!), Channel 23. You can see a rebroadcast of this Thursday, at 9PM on Channel 23 or the internet:
FROM THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL
I want to THANK all those who cam out to vote in the Tuesday primary! It was so good seeing you at the polls, and I appreciate all those who voted for me and worked hard for campaign. I had an uncontested primary. What that means is there were only two slots on the Republican ticket, and two that ran, I being one and Brian Cole being the other. We both won. Our Democrat neighbors had two slots as well, but three contestants, two which won. Now it is on to the general election! You will see me out there in Ward 7, knocking on doors, talking to your neighbors. Please let me know if you want a lawn sign, and I appreciate your support!
NOTES FROM THE TRAIL- Getting to meet a lot of people as I "walk" my ward. One question I get is what do I think about "Trump?" This year has been more controversial than almost any other I have seen, and I have followed politics since I was a kid in 1960s. Whatever your views on Trump, we have a lot of "down" ticket races, offices that need to be filled by principled conservatives who believe in limited government, low taxes, the right to bear arms and advocate parental rights. We need change in Concord, and we need change in Washington. Please go to the polls. Please vote "down" ticket.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
I love New Hampshire, moving here in the 1980s. Low or no taxes, family friendly environment and limited government. It's what drew me here, and kept me here. Marrying and raising a family of seven children, I have been growing concerned at the changes in this great state. In addition to serious problems like the heroin epidemic, the New Hampshire "advantage" seems to be diminishing every year. While we have no state income tax or sales tax (yet!), there are those that have been clamoring for it. Our business taxes and regulations do not make our state as friendly as it used to be. Why aren't companies moving here or starting their business here like they used to? Will our young people stay, or will they move elsewhere for employment? We are graying state.
Being concerned is not enough! I have decided to do something about it. I'm running for office to once again foster the New Hampshire advantage, of limited government, limited taxes and a business friendly environment. I'm running to make New Hampshire a safe state, insuring action concerning our drug problems. I'm running to make sure our children and students have educational choices. I'm running to make sure our state is family welcoming. We can do it, and I ask for your help!
