Candidate for State Representative
Portsmouth, NH Floterial District 30 - includes Wards 1, 2, 4, and 5
Congratulations to my opponent Jacki Cali-Pitts for winning the election on November 6, 2012
Please contact me if you would like to talk about the election or my future plans.
Platform - Common Sense
Challenge corruption, tribal warfare, and pandering in politics.
Promote individual freedom and personal responsibility.
Build a favorable small business climate.
Balance the budget every year.
End corporate welfare and government subsidies.
Support a limited commons for all.
Promote voluntary charity as morally superior and more effective than government programs.
Party - I am a Liberty Republican, endorsed by the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire.
Why do we live in Portsmouth? - As my wife and I were traveling the country trying to decide where we would like to land after our children moved out to start their own lives, we discovered Portsmouth and fell in love like most people who visit this great little city. So, here we are.
Reason for Running - I am running for New Hampshire State Representative because I am optimistic that with independent leadership and a common sense vision, we can build a more neighborly New Hampshire, a more enlightened America, and a more peaceful world.
Emphasis - I will be a champion for the Portsmouth-based small businesses, retailers, arts organizations, civic nonprofits, and restaurants that make Portsmouth one of the best places to live in America.
In my letter to the Portsmouth Herald, I call for reason and civility in the political process.
State Senator Nancy Stiles, myself, and Portsmouth Republican City Committee Chairman Gary Elmer
