GrokTV: NH State Senator Andy Sanborn (District 9) – Question 7

Question #7:  Adversarial relationship between State agencies vs ordinary folks? To fix a perceived problem (which Questions 5 & 6 brought up), you have to know all about the problem – or at least the biggest and most influential parts of the problem.  In discussing State Agencies, we wanted to know if there was a …

GrokTV: Jane Cormier, Candidate for NH House – Questions 5 & 6

# 5: Where on the Political Spectrum are you? #6: Proper Role of Government – Your outlook? Labels, while not always completely describing who what is in politics, can generally give others a good idea of where one stands on the issues.  For instance, Democrats generally spend more and are more liberal than Republicans, who …

GrokTV Special Interview-NH State Senator Andy Sanborn (District 9) – Question 6 – Why hasn’t anyone already streamlined NH State Agencies?

In our last question, we were curious to see why Andy Sanborn thought about State Government and if the State Agencies in the Executive Branch were doing the right things and in the right ways.  Continuing on in that vein, we then extended that question to try to understand why no one else had yet …

Grok Special Interview: Jane Cormier,Candidate for NH House – Questions 3 & 4: Too many uninvolved people? What are your values?

Having gone over the preliminaries questions of “have you done this before” and ‘why are you running” with Jane Cormier (running for the NH House in Belknap 8 – Alton, Barnstead, and Gilmanton), from her answers came the next two questions (heh!  It is ALWAYS better to ask questions from what people themselves have already …

GrokTV Special Interview-NH State Senator Andy Sanborn (District 9) – Question 5: Reforming what State agencies are tasked to do and how to do it?

Most people want to see that the potholes are filled, the snow is plowed, and that the police and firemen are there when needed.  That’s how most decide who to vote for – its the stuff they see.  To us, however, philosophy counts as well – for that leads to the next “upward” step of …

GrokTV Special Interview-NH State Senator Andy Sanborn (District 9) – Question 4: Administrative based taxes: have all taxes, fees, and fines set by the Legislature?

Increasingly, we see NH State Agencies setting their own level of taxation (fees, fines, et al) outside of authorization of the Legislature.  It is the Executive Branch to self-fund and making itself independent of the taxation authority of the Legislature.  And of course, it goes without saying that while Legislators are accountable to the voters, …

Grok Special Interview: Jane Cormier,Candidate for NH House-Question 1 – Why are you running? 2-Why is “where’re we going” dangerous?

A little while ago, we were directed to a video that was taken when the “Values Bus” rolled into NH (sponsored by the Heritage Foundation and the Family Research Council).  While I recognized Karen Testerman and Phyllis Woods in the video, the person that was behind the podium at the time was someone that I …
