POSITION ON ISSUES

The LFDA Survey is the primary source for issue positions on this website. Each election season the Live Free or Die Alliance sends a survey on NH issues to every candidate for state office. We make every effort to reach each candidate by snail-mail, e-mail, and phone. If an issue position is still not answered through our survey, we utilize other resources including voting records, candidate websites, campaign fliers, Project Vote Smart surveys, and more. Any questions or suggestions on issue positions? Contact us.

In Their Own Words

The candidate provided the following statement:

As a moderate Democrat, I passionately believe we must take care of those who cannot take care of themselves, equal rights and justice for all. However, I believe the best course in doing so is to adhere to the constitution. Taking short cuts diminishes our democracy and chips away at the greatest form of government ever conceived.

Please understand just because I feel security is the pressing issue at the moment, it does not diminish the other problems we face.

Drug abuse decimates people’s lives and drains our economy. Violence in certain areas gives it the appearance of being socially acceptable. Our mentally ill do not get adequate treatment which accounts for some of the mass killings. Our veterans do not get adequate medical care and VA management must be held accountable.

I am running for president to give voice to those who believe the federal government should uphold the constitution, protect Americans, balance the budget, confront our adversaries, and support our allies. We should not discharge any honorably serving military personnel at a time when the world is in such turmoil. History has shown reducing the officer staff and experienced enlisted persons decimate military effectiveness. We need to build all our military equipment within the United States and not purchase it from foreign countries.
