Guest Post: NH State Senate candidate Jane Cormier – compare and contrast me to incumbent Dave Boutin

Cormier stands on record in seeking Senate seat

Jane Cormier - GrokTALK!To the Editor: As a member of the New Hampshire House this session, I learned much about the workings of government and politics. As a candidate against Sen. David Boutin in District 16, I can say our voting records clearly demonstrate where we stand on important issues such as taxation and big government.

  • Sen. Boutin voted for the gas tax (a 23 percent tax increase). I voted against.
  • Sen. Boutin voted for Obamacare/Medicaid expansion. I voted against.
  • Sen. Boutin voted for anti-gun legislation this session. I voted against.
  • Sen. Boutin voted against Right to Work. I voted for worker freedom.
  • As a fiscal conservative, I received an “A” from Americans for Prosperity.
  • Sen. Boutin received a “D.”
  • On the issue of Common Core, Sen. Boutin has been silent, voting to kill a bill that would have debated Common Core in the House.

This is why I am running for the Senate in District 16, the towns of Bow, Candia, Dunbarton, Hooksett and Manchester Wards 1, 2 and 12. I may not have the big political “machine” behind me. I may not have hundreds of political signs out and about. But I do have a voting record that consistently and solidly stands for small government and lower taxation.

It will be important to remember that come Sept. 9.

We can and must do better.

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
