424 State representatives and senators have introduced a total of 889 different bills ranging from business issues to proposed tax credits and even far flung proposals to further erode your Constitutional rights. As usually, we'll be diligently working to protect those rights while preserving the New Hampshire Advantage. The Democrats now have majorities in the State House and State Senate, but we can still fight against their usual array of top-down controls, educational experiments, tax increases, unfunded mandates, and the litany of red tape, litigation, and overpriced boondoggles.
All four Republican candidates for State House for Seabrook and Hampton Falls, including former Representatives Max Abramson, Jason Janvrin, and Aboul Khan all placed well in the uncontested September primary. Strong support from primary voters is also a strong indication of intended support for the November 6th General Election.
For four years, there's been a business friendly Republican majority in both Congress and the New Hampshire state legislature. Over those four years, businesses have been able to expand and create record numbers of new jobs, increasing wages and bringing down the overall tax bill.
Rep. Max Abramson recently received the endorsement of the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, and independent watchdog group that supports candidates who consistently vote to protect liberty and keep down taxes.
After President Trump recently announced his intention to withdraw from the non-binding international Paris treaty on climate change, there have been widespread protests by activists against the decision.
"Instead of losing $1-2 trillion a year in global economic activity, America should be leading the world in the development of alternative energies," former Representative Max Abramson (R-Seabrook) said on WNTK in an interview this morning. "Developing economies use the technology that we develop in this country, and we can create more jobs and build more manufacturing in this country by bringing energy costs down through free market competition."
(Indianapolis, IN – May 10, 2017) A judge today granted a motion by the Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office to dismiss the 1992 rape charges against William Barnhouse based on new DNA evidence proving Barnhouse’s innocence of the crime. With Delaware County Prosecuting Attorney Jeffrey Arnold’s consent, the Innocence Project and the Wrongful Conviction Clinic at Indiana University McKinney persuaded a Delaware County court to reverse Barnhouse’s conviction on March 8, 2017 based on this new evidence. Further proceedings in the case were scheduled for May. Arnold’s decision to dismiss the indictment against Barnhouse, who has dealt his entire life with serious mental health conditions, ends his 25 year struggle for justice.
“We’re thankful to the Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office for moving quickly to dismiss the charges against Mr. Barnhouse,” said Seema Saifee, a staff attorney with the Innocence Project, which is affiliated with Cardozo School of Law. “Mr. Barnhouse has waited a long time for this day. While no innocent person should have to endure a wrongful incarceration, prison can be especially devastating for someone like Mr. Barnhouse who is dealing with lifelong mental health conditions.”
Barnhouse said, “It was rough. I was always innocent. I’m glad it’s finally over. I feel so happy.”
Two years ago, we put a citizens petition on the ballot in the Winnacunnet School District asking voters if they wanted to continue with the Common Core educational experiment, along with Smarter Balanced Assessment and the invasions of children's privacy. When introduced at the Fourth Grade level, many children were so confused and frustrated by the new standards that they actually slipped behind a whole grade level, entering the 5th grade at a 3rd grade reading level!
The measure passed every town in our district, winning more than 62% of the vote overall. Unfortunately, the school district has continued to expand on Common Core, despite the voters rejecting this educational experiment in our schools.
Will you please vote with me on Tuesday, March 14th to reject Common Core and return to local control of our schools.
