Letter: Choose Cormier
I support Jane Cormier for state Senate District 16.
Sen. David Boutin co-sponsored the new New Hampshire gas tax – a 23 percent increase. The July 1 effective date was critical to hiding the tax increase with the traditional reduction of summer gasoline prices.
Imagine what the price of gas would be if Boutin and Gov. Maggie Hassan were not reaching deeper into your pocket. Boutin thinks you will forget that he co-sponsored this tax increase. But when it hits your pocket, the true impact will be felt.
The good news is this tax increase can be repealed by legislators who have the best interests of their constituents at heart.
Speaking of the best interests of constituents, why would Boutin vote with the Democratic minority in killing right-to-work legislation? Right-to-work states have lower unemployment and flourishing economies. Boutin has taken thousands of dollars from Big Labor and had to repay the favor.
We need a senator who will work for the people of District 16 and not special interest groups like the Teamsters.
Vote Jane Cormier for state Senate on Sept. 9.
