Letter: Forrester is best for small business
My fellow citizens of the Lakes Region:
I am writing to encourage you to support state Sen. Jeanie Forrester.
As a small-business owner, I am always skeptical of politicians who claim to support small business. I think that they will soon forget their promises and continue to balance the state’s fiscal woes on the backs of the very small-business owners they claim to want to help.
Forrester is different. As a small-business owner herself, she understands the challenges we all face in trying to start, grow and maintain a business in New Hampshire. Her politics are not some sort of radical agenda. Her agenda is all about trying to eliminate governmental obstacles to local businesses while trying to lower tax burdens on small businesses so that we can hire another neighbor rather than send that money to Concord.
Sometimes people think that owning a business makes you a fat cat. Not so. Just ask your friend who owns a hair studio or a plumbing business, or a builder who has struggled through the recession about how important it is to have someone who represents them in Concord. Chances are that friend who owns a small business wants to hire a neighbor, wants to improve their community, wants to earn an honest day’s pay and just needs a few more Forresters to help get this economy going again.
Forrester represents our best hope for our local businesses to grow and flourish. I urge you to vote for her and in doing so vote for our collective local future.
