Letter to the Editor: Concord Monitor on Constituent Services

I believe the job of an elected official is to represent the interests of constituents and the people of New Hampshire and not to promote a political agenda.

While proud to be a Democrat, I can rightly claim to have worked across the aisle to get results. After two years of work, I was able to get a traffic signal installed at the intersection of Routes 107 and 4. Prior to my taking the lead, Republicans in Rockingham District 32 had been asked for years to deal with this dangerous intersection. None did. Since that light was installed, there has not been one fatal accident there.

At the request of constituents in Northwood and Nottingham, I sponsored legislation giving communities more control of resources, and concerning large groundwater withdrawals.

At the request of constituents in Northwood, I sponsored legislation giving abutters control of a dam at Jenness Pond.

At the request of constituents in Deerfield, I sponsored legislation reclassifying Pleasant Lake as a class A lake.

At the request of a constituent in Candia, I sponsored legislation concerning home wine making and promotion of New Hampshire-made products.

At the request of a constituent in Deerfield, I sponsored legislation seeking labeling of genetically engineered foods.

I have co-sponsored legislation with Republicans calling for cameras on state police, decriminalization of marijuana, disclosure of “model” legislation and transparency in campaign funding. I am particularly proud of co-sponsoring legislation [HB 155-2014]demanding stiffer penalties for neglect and exploitation of the elderly and disabled.

Endorsement by NEA-NH

Maureen Mann, a former educator and state representative, has been endorsed by the New Hampshire affiliate of the National Education Association – a union representing educators in public schools and universities – in the May 19 special election for Rockingham District 32, which encompasses Candia, Deerfield, Northwood, and Nottingham.

“I’m honored to have the support of my fellow educators,” Mann said. “As a former public school teacher, I know how important it is to make sure the public’s tax dollars schools are spent on keeping our public schools well-staffed and properly-equipped.” 

Mann, who has served 2.5 terms in the New Hampshire legislature, has a long record of advocating for properly funding the state’s public K-12 schools and universities. If elected, she has pledged to fight for a budget that ensures state dollars are used to fund public schools, rather than religious and private schools.

“Too many educators are forced to pay out of pocket for basic supplies that their students depend on, and education cuts will further downshift state responsibilities to our teachers,” Mann said. “Our government must properly provide for our public schools, so that they remain some of the best schools in the nation. Students and parents deserve nothing less.”

Mann, who won her March 31 primary uncontested, has also won the support of the American Federation of Teachers for the May 19 special election in Rockingham District 32.

Thanks for Your Support Jim Hadley

LTE In the Suncook Sun:

 Having read recent letters regarding the special election for state representative I needed to respond. The contest is between former state representative Maureen Mann of Deerfield and a newcomer, Northwood’s Yvonne Dean-Bailey, a soon to be full-time student at UNH.

The most recent letter by Ms. Dean-Bailey talks about ‘the success of the NH House passed budget’. One of the successes she claims is that there are no new taxes or fees imposed at the state level. However, she fails to mention that the House passed budget and related bills downshifts new taxes and expenses onto local property taxpayers. NH already has the third highest property tax rate in the country behind New Jersey and Illinois. Putting NH on the road to being #1 in property taxes should not be considered a successful budget.

The House passed budget makes sweeping cuts to state agencies that provide services to the elderly, disabled, the homeless, and the working poor. Their passed budget also discontinues New Hampshire’s expansion of Medicaid where 37,000 people will no longer have affordable access to healthcare. One would think that cutting these programs that are a lifeline for so many of our vulnerable citizens would be a difficult decision to make. Not so for the majority of House Republicans in Concord.

In a recent order issued by the NH Public Utilities Commission on April 17, it mentions that ‘the average retail price of electricity in New England is the highest in the continental US’. The House Republications voted to raid the dedicated funds which were earmarked for renewable energy projects for $50 million. They also voted to empty the state’s rainy day fund for $10 million. These actions were ill-conceived and short-sighted. Not considered successful by any means.

Please vote for Maureen Mann, a voice of reason.

NH Sierra Club Endorsement

Former New Hampshire state representative Maureen Mann has won the endorsement of the state’s most prominent environmental advocacy group. The New Hampshire chapter of the Sierra Club is encouraging members in Rockingham District 32 to vote for Mann in the May 19 special election based on her record of supporting the preservation of New Hampshire’s natural resources.

“We appreciate her support for winning solutions like energy efficiency and energy saving programs that the state has implemented,” said NH Sierra Club chapter director Catherine Corkery. “We also share her optimism that we can do more to address climate issues in New Hampshire.”

Mann, who was the chief sponsor of HB 660, a 2013 bill that would have required the labeling of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), previously won the NH Sierra Club’s endorsement during her 2014 re-election campaign, which she narrowly lost. Mann’s opponent, Brian F. Dobson, resigned shortly after his swearing-in, prompting a special election on May 19. Mann was uncontested in the March 31 Democratic primary.

“It means a lot to have the support of the New Hampshire Sierra Club,” Mann said. “I firmly believe that the Granite State’s natural resources belong to all of us. I’ll continue to fight for the preservation of our shared resources if the voters of Deerfield, Candia, Northwood, and Nottingham send me back to Concord.”

In 2014, the New Hampshire chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA-NH) presented Mann with the Legislator of the Year award for her work on HB 660. Mann has also stood up for local control over energy projects that towns chose to support.
