Letter: Battling in District 3

I read with interest Kathleen Ronayne’s extensive coverage of the 2014 New Hampshire state Senate races (Sunday Monitor, July 27), a report that even included comment on a non-race – District 16, where Democrats have failed to find a candidate. So it was with great surprise and considerable disappointment that I found District 3 was omitted; that’s Jeb Bradley’s district, a presumed GOP sinecure occupied by the current majority leader.

It’s a rather strange omission since Bradley has a viable opponent: Me, John R. White of Wolfeboro, a hardly unknown politically active Democrat in Jeb’s hometown. I’m certainly not unknown to Bradley, who is already emailing constituents castigating the “liberal Democrat” for attacking his “pro-business” legislation.

I think he refers to my comments on his support for repeal of the New Hampshire minimum wage that knocked the floor out from under the low-wage earners in the Granite State.

That’s not pro-business; that’s anti-working families.

My right-wing opponent seems to confuse being anti everything but business with being pro-business, but I would suggest that being against labor, women, education, children, the mentally ill, police, teachers, firefighters et al is hardly reflective of support for business.

District 3 has fared badly with Bradley, and I propose to give voice and shed light on his tacky record.

I would hope the Concord Monitor would find the District 3 Senate race at least as worthwhile as those other contests it saw fit to examine.
