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

As founder of We The People a National Whistleblower Non-Profit Organization, Stephen Comley has provided the following statements and documents related to nuclear power plant safety that he believes deserve the public's attention.

To the Editor:
MA and NH Governors Charlie Baker and Maggie Hassan when will either of you finally decide to take action on the unsafe conditions at the Seabrook Nuclear Plant?  When will you stand up and protect all the dedicated first responders in your states?

Unbelievable, Still being heard across the U.S. is the anti-police sentiment even after the assassination of 4 more police officers..  

Both of you as Governors have talked about how much value you put on the men and women who stand ready as state troopers, police, fire and civil defense to protect and serve their fellow Americans 

I have been to both of your offices no less than 20 times requesting to meet but have not even received a written response concerning the unsafe conditions at the Seabrook Nuclear Plant.   These unsafe situations at Seabrook Station includes the presence of falsified bad welds, Counterfeit Substandard nuclear parts built in the plant, unmanned Security Booth and the fact citizens including Special needs people who live inside and outside the 10 mile radius of the Nuclear Plant cannot be evacuated safety during the summer months in the event of a Nuclear disaster at Florida (FPL) Power and Light’s plant. 

These unsafe conditions threaten the very lives of all first responders and their families in both states and beyond. 

Your constituents have a right to know why, neither one of you have held a press conference denouncing the GAG orders still in effect on the MA State Police & the NH National Guard imposed by the former Dukakis and Sununu Administrations. 

Senator Bruce Tarr and Representative Bradford Hill have done more than talk about the value of the first responders who risk their lives on a daily basis. 

Unlike former MA Governor Deval Patrick who broke his promise to WTP when he opted to take a position at MIT instead protecting the safety of MA citizens.   MA Senator Bruce Tarr and Rep. Bradford Hill followed through with their promise to WTP by endorsing our call for the Nuclear (NRC) Regulatory Commission to hold a hearing in front of first responders so these traffic experts can voice their opinions whether citizens living within and outside the 10 mile radius of Seabrook Station can be evacuated in time and safety in the event of a Nuclear meltdown during the summer months including July 4..  

I certainly hope one of the reasons Governor Hassan is not willing to endorse WTP’s call isn’t because FPL pays the Town of Seabrook 15 million dollars a year in real estate taxes.  There is no question that is a lot of money but is it more important than the safety of the people?  

Let’s not forget the only reason Seabrook Nuclear Plant got licensed was due to the twisted priorities and underhanded work of John Sununu while he was White House Chief of Staff under President George Bush.   Senior.  Mr. Sununu was given and gladly took the assignment to jam one step licensing down the throats of his fellow NH citizens which circumvented the people’s right to participate in legal proceedings against licensing the plant.  

The following are quotes from a Secret Department of Energy (obtained by WTP) Memo, “NRC Chairman Selin might more quickly fall in line for Governor Sununu than he would for Admiral Watkins.  Have Governor Sununu tell Chairman Selin to say nothing further to the Congress than support of S.1220 and its specific provisions, ignore the past.”   

One Step licensing is what really got Seabrook Nuclear plant’s license to operate when Sununu was making a mockery of our American democracy system of government while at the same time, proudly displaying the saying on his NH license plate, live free or die. 

Ultimately, We The People will be demanding that the Department of Justice fully investigate how the NRC was able to license the Seabrook Nuclear Plant in the middle of Hampton Beach.  

Mr. Sununu is still a very powerful man with his continuing intimidation and influence not only on elected officials but with the NH media too.  Hopefully Mr. Sununu still does not possess as much power in Washington since former President Bush was forced to put the self-proclaimed “Pussy Cat” out due to the many dirty tricks he is known to use which I know firsthand about. 

These above reasons and many more are  why I am seeking the Republican Nomination to become the next President of the United States. 

Sincerely,

Signed

Stephen B. Comley Sr.
Founder of We The People a National Whistleblower Non-Profit Organization
