Have spent a lot of time this past few weeks canvassing and doing visibility in Candia, Northwood, Nottingham and Deerfield. Have met some wonderful people from both parties and had some great discussions; even if the encounters do not lead to a vote, I am learning that people realize the seriousness of the issues and want to be informed.

Progress on Traffic Signal at 4/107

Some constituents had asked that I see what could be done about getting a traffic signal at the intersection at Routes 4/107 south. Accidents occur at the site quite regularly. The past week, the site was added to the list of locations where a traffic signal would be effective. For more details, click here

Forum Candidates' Night Summary

The Forum Candidates' Night attracted quite a few citizens to hear candidates for state rep and state senate. The event is being telecast on local public access stations and a summary by Forum reporter Bob Strobel can be found here. Sadly, of the ten candidates running for the five state rep positions, three Republican candidates--Duarte, Reagan and Stucker--declined to attend. They attended a private Republican only candidate event the evening before where statements were presented but no questions from the public were allowed from the floor. We are elected to represent all residents and need to be willing to engage in dialogue with all residents both before and after the election. And it turned out to be a great dialogue, and a positive event.

The Forum candidates' night is coming up on October 15 at 7:00 pm at the Deerfield Town Hall on 8 Church Street in Deerfield. It will feature all the candidates for state rep and state senate for the towns of Northwood, Nottingham, Deerfield and Candia.

Here is a chance to ask the candidates the tough questions to get the information you need. Hope to see you there.

Keeping Constituents Informed

When I ran for state representaive, I promised to keep constituents informed about what was going on in Concord. One way I did this was to write regular reports about roll call votes in The Forum []

Links to some of these reports are listed below:

What is the Cost of an Adequate Education?

Education Funding

Tracking Devices, Marijuana and Water

Ethics and Immigration

Health and Education

Library Talks

Another way I keep in touch with constituents is by holding rotating monthly meetings at the libraries of the four towns I represent: Nottingham, Northwood, Deerfield and Candia. I have enjoyed every meeting and learned a great deal from those who attended.

At one meeting in Nottingham I had a chance to discuss the Downeaster and public transportation options and learned a great deal. Another meeting in Candia allowed me to discuss conservation issues. Some meetings were just general talks about legislation or government and how things work. All gave me a chance to meet with constituents and get to know those who attended. I will continue this practice when re-elected.

With your help I became a member of the General Court

Thanks to your efforts, I won the special election and on January 30, 2008 was sworn in as a member of the New Hampshire General Court. I hope to live up to your expections and to the title of 'Honorable'. My opponent was a strong candidate, had formidable support, and fought hard. I am proud of our campaign which focused on positions and goals rather than personal attacks.

Thanks for your help in the special election

Thanks to the many people who worked hard for my special election during the cold and nasty days of the second snowiest winter on record. Thanks for the contributions, the 'viz' at the dump and at the polls, and to all those folks who put up yard signs, some in really creative places. It was your efforts and contributions of time, work and money that made the victory possible.
