To the editor:
I write to thank the citizens of East Kingston, Kensington and South Hampton for their tremendous support in electing me representative from Rockingham District 16 to the New Hampshire General Court.
I am humbled by their faith in me.
When campaigning throughout the district, it became very clear that they wanted someone who would actively protect the New Hampshire advantage – no sales or income tax, with reasonable regulations and fees, and managed by a balanced budget.
The New Hampshire Advantage keeps our economy vibrant and growing, and it permits steady job growth.
They also wanted someone who would protect their constitutional rights -- life, liberty and property; equal protection under the law; freedom of speech, religion and assembly; and the right to keep and bear arms to ensure their rights and safety.
Finally, they wanted free and fraud-free elections, maintenance of a clean environment and support for good, local policing.
And they strongly advocated that our schools be safely opened.
It is my objective to champion these causes in Concord. I will do my best to keep these causes in the forefront of legislative action.
Thanks to our veterans who have kept us free, and thanks to those who've supported me.
