Which issues are affecting you and your family? Is it jobs and the economy? Cost and quality of education? High taxes? Ever-expanding government regulations and restrictions? Reduced freedoms and less privacy? Property rights? I'd like to hear from you.
State spending has increased 23% over the previous legislative terms. Fortunately, this past 2 years we did something about it -- balancing the budget and reducing the burden on taxpayers. The Republican majority lived up to its promise of fiscal responsibility -- maintaining essential state services without adding more debt and deficit spending.
With high unemployment and many businesses and workers struggling economically, the state bureaucracy must shrink to reflect economic realities.
If you support economic recovery by responsibly adjusting spending and curtailing the size and scope of government, then please vote for Mark Warden on September 11th and again on November 6th.
Jobs & the Economy
For the economy to flourish in New Hampshire, small businesses and entrepreneurs must be free to innovate, expand, and take risks without so many burdensome taxes, regulations, license fees, and government bureaucracy. Taxes and excessive governmental controls kill the small businesses that provide jobs. As a small business owner and consultant, I fully understand this.
Granite Staters are resourceful. They don’t need government’s help; they want government to get out of the way!
While Goffstown and Weare schools provide a decent education, property taxes are high (particularly in Goffstown). Many schools have expensive administrative and overhead costs that don’t directly contribute to educating students.
Giving parents and students more choices in learning will deliver better service at a lower cost. When public, private, and charter schools are allowed (and encouraged) to compete, the result is better educational outcomes for all. Let’s free our schools from onerous top-down, one-size-fits-all regulations, and let teachers and principals, as well as parents and students, do what they do best at the local level.
Demands for protection of rivers, streams, and woodlands must be balanced with private property rights and recreational use, as well as the needs of travel and tourism. Thoughtful consideration must always be given to the need for energy resources for New Hampshire families.
As an outdoors enthusiast, I enjoy all the natural beauty that the Granite State offers. As a property owner and taxpayer advocate, I understand that nature itself doesn’t reign supreme over the everyday needs for the transportation, housing, and jobs that contribute to your quality of life.
I will always fight to support your rights!
Parental rights to provide for and protect their families
2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms
Constitutional rights and state sovereignty
Fewer government mandates and more local control
Personal liberty and privacy protections
Private property rights
