RAYMOND – We are winding down to the most important primary election in recent history. Our country and our state are really at a major crossroad that only you the citizens can correct. So, where are we headed? God only knows. Everyone has an answer, but to tell you the truth, you will hear a million different answers.
Yes, we cannot all be correct, all the time, but I do know, in my honest opinion, listed below are some serious questions that you need to ask your local State Representative candidates because, if elected, they will play a major role in the next New Hampshire legislature, supposedly working for you, making some major decisions.
~ Do you truly have the: time, health, and energy; can you be there, working in your House committee, sub-committee, and at sessions three or four times a week, as needed, to do the peoples’ work, regardless of the hours involved?
~ Will your candidate pledge you and all constituents that they will be present for all their House work, including policy committee, sub-committee, and sessions, including all votes, working for their constituent?
~ Would your candidate further pledge to all constituents that they will be present for all the County work, including Delegation meetings, sub-committees, and Executive
Committees (if they’re on it), ensuring that our County budget is balanced, and quarterly on target?
~ Would your candidate pledge to work to reduce the state and county budgets, but at the same time, requiring what funds they agree to cut from the budget, they cut what that money funded?
~ With the massive new problems arising from various state departments, would your candidate agree to work to correct this growing problem? Even supporting possibly a new “Independent Inspector General”, overseeing all departments, if deemed necessary?
~ Is your candidate running as an involved special interest front man, or is he or she working for you, and their other constituents?
