Please stop Red Flag law, No one should have the right to take fire arms from anyone as long as they are law abiding citizens. I am a born NH / American citizen and should not have to worry about my own government confiscating my guns without due process being a law abiding citizen. No one should have the right to take our guns as long as they are a law abiding citizen. You should consider both sides not just the side you represent, mine advise is that being open minded to both sides will work a lot better. What about the ones of us that hunt, target shot, or just the right to bear arms. If you think this is best for suicide people, your wrong, if they want to die they will find a way, WHY TAKE FROM THE LAW ABIDING CITIZEN THIS IS SO SO WRONG. Why do you stand for what is so wrong and want to hurt the citizens that are law abiding...….. Please again, be fair to all and OPEN MINDED Please...……..

Good Sir, I am a state employee writing to you about the status of negotiations on the Executive Branch Master Contract. Earlier this year, no agreement was reached between negotiators for state employees and negotiators for the state -- and the process went to a Fact Finder mutually agreed upon by both parties to resolve the contract dispute. The fact finder has made recommendations for resolving each of the issues. RSA 273-A requires the Governor provide the fact finders report to the Executive Council so they can study it and vote to accept it or not. At the December 18th Executive Council meeting, Councilor Volinsky called on the Governor to put the fact finder report on the agenda. The Governor refused.
The State Employees Association believes the refusal by the Governor to provide this report to the Executive Council for a vote is a violation of law governing public sector bargaining (RSA 273-A). Could you ask to have the fact finders report be discussed soon. As a state employee I love our state and only wish that everyone is fair in this process. Thank you for your review of my concerns.
Regards,
Tracy Rousseau
