Published: 9/8/2016 11:44:45 AM

Harriet E. Cady

Party: Republican

Age: 73

Town of residence: Deerfield

Occupation: real estate broker

Incumbent? No, served from 2002-2006

Do you support . . .

Commuter rail funding? No at this time, N.H. has other pressing needs.

Providing more state money for higher education? Need to look at how university is presently spending the money it gets and at some of the programs but certainly believe in higher education and need for students to be able to afford.

Pro-gun legislation, such as constitutional carry? Yes

Reauthorizing Medicaid expansion? This is certainly a program needing more study.

Increasing the minimum wage? With some reservations.

Marijuana legalization or decriminalization? No legalization and some decriminalization.

What would you like voters to know about your philosophy, principles or priorities? I support elected officials following their oath to uphold the Constitutions of New Hampshire and the U.S. and if they feel a law is wrong introducing changes. My philosophy is that no politician has the right to take money from someone who has earned it to give to others who could work. We have a responsibility to help those who cannot help themselves and I prioritize family first. Right to know what my government is doing and whether they are following their oath.

My hobby: genealogy, history and helping friends.

Yvonne Dean-Bailey

Party: Conservative Republican

Age: 20

Town of residence: Northwood, 16 years

Occupation: sales, Spectrum Marketing

Incumbent? If so, how many terms? Incumbent, won in a special election . . . about ½ of a two-year term.

Do you support . . .

Commuter rail funding? No. We need to keep jobs and workers in New Hampshire. Not send commuters on a taxpayer-funded train to Massachusetts.

Providing more state money for higher education? I think we need to invest in bringing more technical colleges to our state – but when I see UNH purchase a luxurious outdoor swimming pool and a $17,000+ table, I can't justify allocating taxpayer dollars to an institution who has not spent their money wisely in the past.

Pro-gun legislation, such as constitutional carry? I support constitutional carry, and I will stick up for law-abiding gun owners.

Reauthorizing Medicaid expansion? I do not support the re-authorization of Medicaid expansion, and I was disappointed to see the work/ volunteer requirement fail.

Increasing the minimum wage? I do not support increasing the minimum wage. We have low unemployment and a high amount of unfilled jobs in N.H., which will force employers to pay competitive rates.

Marijuana legalization or decriminalization? I support decriminalization, it will allow our law enforcement officers to focus on more heinous crimes and it will free up our jails. I do not support legalization.

What would you like voters to know about your philosophy, principles or priorities? To the voters of Northwood, Nottingham, Deerfield and Candia – I will always work to keep more money in your wallet. Less is always better when it comes to government. I will continue to work to make N.H. more business friendly so we can bring more (and better) jobs for our friends and neighbors. I'd be honored to have your vote.
