A recent letter to the Londonderry Times and Hudson-Litchfield News shows exactly what is wrong with today’s party politics. Instead of talking about what WE can do as a community or a nation the letter writer chose to pull imaginary issues from the darkest regions of there anatomy in an attempt portray a candidate as somehow evil for having more people interested in having her represent them in Concord than her opponent. Lets remember that the voters and the taxpayers are one and the same and when there is a friend to the taxpayer, people out side the district, realizing that it takes more than one vote to accomplish a goal, will contribute to candidates in hopes of spreading a message of fiscal responsibility and an understanding of the plight of working men and women.
Senator Sharon Carson has been recently deemed by opposing party political’s as evil in the sense she has a wide range of support from both individuals and business’s who fear for their very survival. In an attempt to dissuade voters from looking at the facts the writer notes contributions coming from all over and deems contributions from those in business to be an evil deed that the public should use as a reason to support the oppositions candidate. Said candidate who by the way cannot find enough people to agree with her positions to fund any furtherance or dissemination of her ideas to the general public.
The idea of a free election system includes allowing for those who support a message to also support that messages ability to reach all the people. A bad message, a bad plan for the state of NH, gets little if any attention and little if any financial support to broadcast that bad idea.
Sharon Carson has worked hard as a legislator in the House and even harder as a Senator for the district. She has asked local constituents to donate to a local charity rather than her campaign on many occasions and the local community has done just that. For Senator Sharon Carson its about the issues, about the people, and about doing what is right for NH. People who believe she is fair , open and honest have contributed to her campaign. They believe integrity is as important to the process as the ideas that will be debated. Sharon has the highest level of integrity one could ask for. You may not always agree but you can never deny she is open and honest making her decisions in the light of day. Her work on behalf of the people she serves both locally and statewide is well known and very much appreciated.
No person running for a voluntary job paying $100 a year should ever have to be subjected to the party politics that seem to creep into every election at the last minute. Sharon Carson deserves to be respected for her record as a veteran of our armed forces, a mother of two wonderful daughters, a teacher of our youth at the college level a phenomenal wife according to her husband and a member of her community who over the years has given hundreds of hours with no expectations other than to hope to have assisted others in their time of need.
Sharon Carson deserves our support and she deserves our thanks as someone we have been able to count on to serve with honor and distinction whenever the call for volunteers has been made. I will be voting for Sharon Carson for Senate. She demonstrates the kind of leadership we need to work together to find our way. I hope you will look at what Sharon Carson has done over the years and join me in asking her to serve by voting for Sharon Carson for Senate in November.
