“I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ‘needed’ before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ ‘interests,’ I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.”

Good Day Belknap District 1

This week, April 7-9th the NH House will be in Session Voting on Proposed legislation.
I am Available up to April 6th to receive and Listen to Information and Data on the Bills I have not yet Finalized.
I Encourage my Constituents to Contact me as Soon as Possible on all Concerns and Issue.
The Earlier I can Listen to Your Point of View and Understand the Facts of a Topic Allows Everyone a Continued effort in Presenting all Sides Concisely in Addressing a Topic.

A Thank You to all the Belknap 1 Residents and to all the NH Residents and organizations who had contacted me, shared information, and their Requests as how best to vote. I hope that my responses had been concise and acceptable.

Residents have offered me their Viewpoints and Inquired where I stand on pending Legislation, Center Harbor & New Hampton issues, and concerns for New Hampshire.
In addition One to One Correspondence, these Posts are a Secondary access for Residents in the attempt to make Information Available.
I will do My upmost, within the Constraints of the NH Constitution, to Represent our District's Residents, Businesses, Select-boards, and Officials before My Political or Personal Ideology.

Mar. 15, 2021 - UPDATE of Issues - Legislators Need to Hear Your Views - Please Share with Others My Outreach Attempts to Listen -
Issues - Multiple Interactions with Belknap 1 Residents:
Article V Convention of States
Though I Believe in the Support of an Article V Convention of States, I am Seeking Contact from NH and Belknap 1 Residents, former Legislators and Educated/Informed Persons concerning the US Constitution Article V clause.
RTW - Right to Work Legislation
Unions and Right to Choose organizations have contacted and are corresponding with me. I would like to hear more from from Center Harbor & New Hampton Businesses and Residents.
Abortion Legislation
I have Voted to Protect the Life of all; Women, Babies, and Viable Fetuses. I am Against Providing Tax Funding that Supports the Taking of a Life.
Privacy Legislation
I am Against the State from Mandating a Criminal Background Check / Finger Prints for most Professional Licenses
Education Funding
I will Vote in Favor of State Funds to Support Quality Education for Students.
Community Aggregation of Energy
I Do Not Believe in Subsidies, though I will support local control of municipalities to aggregate and provide energy for reduction of their Infrastructure energy expenses.
Biomass Energy
I Do Not Believe in Subsidies, though I will support the use of Low Grade Forest Biomass used to Produce Energy.

=========================================================================================================================================================================================
Mar. 3, 2021
What I Believe is best for the Majority of New Hampshire Residents.

There is the need for an Article V Convention. I understand there was an Art. V Resolution enacted which must be address before or within any new Art. V Legislation.
That Life is Created and Cherished. The State Priority to Protect Life overrides the Need to Take a Life.
Invest in Quality Education Opportunities. Education Funds are best Utilized when it Follows the Student.
The Quality of Voting Integrity needs to be determined.
Housing Should be Determined at the Local Level. The State Should Encourage and Accommodation Local Interests without Mandates.
Federal and State Emergency Orders are not to Infringe nor Suspend any Part of Individual or Constitutional Rights.
Taxation is Theft. Labor and Property taken without Owner's Authorization is Theft. Taxation is Legalized Theft.
Parental Control is not Ownership but is Child Husbandry, best Determined by Family.

Pending legislation:
HB583 I Support NH choice where to donate organs Organ Donor...
HB 20 I Support the State Allocation Funds to the Student. I am Listening to Residents as I await the Final Bill to Review.
SB61 RTW (Right to Work) I support the freedom of association. --- First off, this is a very important and personal issue for many. Everyone from unions to business have been honorable in their presentations to me. It is more than an ideology but of peoples jobs, wages and protection.---
At Present I do not see Overwhelming Harm to allow ALL workers the Right to Chose for Themselves thus I am now Leaning in Support of a RTW Bill. I am still planning to attend Right for Representation panels and hear pro RTW reasoning.
HB315 I support Community Aggregation and Community Power. I am still gathering data/info. I do not support HB315 as it was written. I am reviewing amendments for need of the PUC, and to separate energy, power, and sharing of costs.
HB385 I am against extending additional benefits to protect a class of workers for conditions that affect the population as a whole. As a 1st responder for 40 yrs, we took risks knowingly as have many other trades. Replies appearing to value 1st responders above other workers is not Constitutionally sound.
HB430 I will Support Free Speech. I Will Support HB430 as pressented.
HB213 I will Not Support HB213 as presented. NH sustenance and personal incomes revolves around Tourism, Forests, and Recreation. I do not believe in subsidies but their removal may negatively affect this balance.
HB 107, 517 I will Not Support a NH minimum wage. Minimum wage, with NH's wide range of employment, ages, length of employment, training curve, etc. would be detrimental to NH economy.
