NH Stonewall Democrats Endorse

My one driving goal as a Legislator is to work for Justice. Some of us, because of who we are or what we look like, find it easy to obtain. But Justice is a promise of Equality to everyone, not just the majority, and so I will work to ensure this for all.

From their endorsement letter – “LGBTQ+ rights and protections are constantly at risk in the state of New Hampshire. The community as a whole is relying on hard-working advocates, to promote, move forward, and communicate on issues that would limit or inhibit progress on LGBTQ+ equality.”

I accept this endorsement proudly.

Endorsements? No, not these

Endorsements? No, not these

Having filed to return to the House, now we begin receiving requests to fill in surveys from lobbying groups.

Yesterday I received these via mail.

One wants me to remove all regulations on weapons, another wants me to remove all taxes, the last one wants me to remove a woman’s right to bodily autonomy.

I promise to consistently vote for smart gun laws, protecting  2a of the NH Constitution while protecting the community. I’d ask for help from gun owners on how to require everyone follow the guidance of responsible owners and make NH safer for everyone.

NH’s taxes are out of balance because of the consistent downshifting of the burden to run this state down onto property owners. We are punishing poorer communities and those with other burdens when they know our children should all have the same access to public education, safe roads and bridges, access to healthcare, a secure retirement within the community they spent their lives.

I promise to secure and protect the hard personal decisions women have to make concerning their own health and that of their families. The state has no right to interfere between a woman and her doctor. 

No, not these, not now, not ever

Your 3 Ward 1 State representatives scored 100 percent in the 2019 Open Democracy Scorecard

Open Democracy Action (ODA)https://www.opendemocracyaction.org/scorecards

is a nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to creating and safeguarding political equality for the people of New Hampshire. The Open Democracy Action Scorecard : ” It is one thing for candidates to declare that they believe in open democracy and stand for political equality, quite another for office holders to vote in ways that move us in that direction. This scorecard measures the latter. The ODA’s annual report to New Hampshire’s citizens documents how their state representatives and senators voted on democracy issues.”
