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.
