Some of the primary reasons that I am running: NH is a unique State and I want to fight for our Constitutional rights and Freedoms. I am pro-life and I am an advocate for parents making school choice for their children. We have seen a majority in Concord vote for disastrous bills in 2019 and 2020 that would burden our state’s economy and take away our Second Amendment rights. I will always vote against an Income Tax or Sales Tax and or any other form of tax that burdens NH citizens and small businesses. I want to be a part of a new majority that fights for limited government in the Granite State and preserves New Hampshire Freedoms, Liberties, and Constitutional rights.

My Priorities

Freedom

I believe in and stand up for our NH Constitution and our U.S. Constitution.

The New Hampshire Constitution, Part 1, Bill of Rights, Article 1 puts everything in perspective “[Equality of Men; Origin and Object of Government.]. All men are born equally free and independent; Therefore, all government of right originates from the people, is founded in consent, and instituted for the general good.”
June 2, 1784*

During the past two years 2019 and 2020 gun control bills have been introduced and passed by the NH House These bills have been and continue to be an attack on our Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. People like New York, Bloomberg have put money into NH to try to obtain gun control through the Legislature. My Democratic opponent Ken Wells has voted in favor of gun control bills for the past 2 years. New Hampshire has adequate gun laws. When I win in November I will always oppose and vote against any and all gun control bills.

Taxes

“Small Businesses” are the backbone of NH’s economy. The budget passed in 2019 had a “trigger” with an increase in the Business Profits Tax if NH income fell below a certain level. The Democrats are in favor of the tax increase. Where the Democrats currently control the House, the tax increase will take place unless we vote them out of office in November and a new Legislature repeals the law. NH business owners income has been devastated by Covid-19. I am against this tax increase taking place in 2021.

There is talk of passing major taxes in New Hampshire to fill the gap of income in the budget. We cannot replace the income needed in the NH budget on the backs of NH taxpayers. The Legislature needs to cut the budget. I take a tax pledge to oppose a Sales Tax or an Income Tax and will vote against all other tax increases.
My Democrat opponent Ken Wells is not against all taxes. On his website is posted the following: “I oppose the imposition of state income taxes, and I oppose plans to reduce the share of state taxes paid by businesses.”
On his website it does not say he opposes Sales Tax, and he is against small business as he is opposed in reducing the tax increase on January 1, 2021.

Education

I am an advocate for “School Choice.”It is up to the parents to choose their childs education and where they will go to school. That decision does not belong to a school district or a union. We have to stop putting children into one cube so to speak as they all are individuals and have a different way of learning.
