Letter to the editor, Union Leader

The following LTE appeared in the Union Leader on October 11, 2016.

To the Editor: I am the Republican candidate for state Senate in District 20 (Goffstown and Manchester Wards 3, 4, 10 and 11). I ask for your vote on Nov. 8.

You should be free to spend your money as you see fit. You should be free to pursue your vocation without red tape. You should exercise personal responsibility in your own life, and let others be, except when keeping your representatives accountable and transparent. As your senator, I will publicize every vote I make.

We need fresh, rational voices in Concord who apply logic and facts, who are not swayed by propaganda and hysteria. As a former attorney, I have these analytical skills. As an activist, I have dedicated my life to liberty, winning a landmark First Amendment case and cautioning about police militarization.

The “NH Advantage” no longer exists. Even “Taxachusetts” has a better business climate. We must reverse this trend by pursuing free market policies, like the recent business tax cut that created 17,274 new jobs and a $100 million budget surplus.

We need to foster high tech. I worked in Silicon Valley for almost a decade. We need to embrace the inevitable “Uber Everything” future. Imagine if you only paid for what you use, your payment goes directly to your service providers, thereby eliminating government waste.

The GOP platform says: “We believe in free people, free markets and free enterprise.” In the Senate, I will vote to grow the economy for the benefit of young and old.
