Letter: Another chance to vote for death penalty repeal

Published: 5/15/2019 12:01:22 AM

On May 23, the Legislature will meet to vote to overturn Gov. Chris Sununu’s veto of the repeal of the death penalty. This is a conscience vote, and no one should feel political pressure for their vote.

I have been writing letters to the editor for decades to repeal the death penalty from New Hampshire law. As a member of the N.H. General Court at this time in my life, each time I have had a chance to vote to repeal, I have and will continue to vote to repeal.

The arguments against the death penalty have been made over and again. I hope all in the House and Senate who have another chance to vote to repeal this law will do it again.

I do not want to be part of state-sanctioned killing of anyone.

Rep. CHRISTY DOLAT BARTLETT
