Position on Issues

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire add tax incentives for affordable housing development?

"We are losing our young workers because New Hampshire does not have affordable housing. I believe we need to do everything possible to keep a strong, young workforce and adding tax incentives for affordable housing would be a good step."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire increase subsidies and tax credits for business investment?

"I believe we need to encourage new business in New Hampshire but not at the expense of shifting the tax burden to personal property owners."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire lower business taxes?

"Business taxes have been lowered each year for several years. I think it's time to stop and focus on lowering the personal property tax burden."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire add a tax on capital gains?

"I think that there are some instances where this would be appropriate. I would want to research this more."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire increase the tax on cigarettes?

"I believe we should not only tax cigarettes but also vaping."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire add restrictions to the governor's powers during a state of emergency?

"During Covid-19, the Governor was not transparent about how funds were allocated. We have a Democratic House and Senate chosen by the people of New Hampshire. He should be subject to the equal balance of power between his office and the legislature so that the best interests of the taxpayers are represented."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire create a statewide family and medical leave program, paid for with a percentage of employee wages, with no opt-out?

"I strongly support paid family and medical leave, but as a choice."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Do you support Gov. Sununu's proposal to allow employers and employees to opt-in to a private, paid family and medical leave insurance plan, based on a pool of state employees, excluding coverage for personal illness?

"I do not support Governor Sununu's proposal."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should NH pass stricter gun control laws?

"I support common sense gun regulation, including background checks, closing loopholes in private sales, restricting open carry on school property, etc."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should NH add an income tax on earned income?

"Again, we need to look at options for increasing state revenue to offset state expenses without impacting property owners."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Do you support the option of mail-in ballots for all voters, not just absentees?

"I do not support any kind of voter suppression. We should be making it as easy and safe as possible to vote."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should NH legalize the recreational use of marijuana?

"After much research I still lean against legalizing marijuana. There is such solid evident that the neurological impact on the brain of young people under the age of 25 is measurable. So may argue that it would bring revenue to the state but studies show that is not accurate. Other states that have legalized have not seen the revenues they expected. I do believe that we should decriminalize the use of marijuana but legalizing it makes it more accessible for children."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire increase the size of solar panel installations that may participate in net energy metering?

"For"

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire ban abortion after 24 weeks gestation, with exceptions for cases of rape/incest and health complications?

"I am always for a women's right to choose and for the decision to be between a women and her physician as to what is right and appropriate for her own health care."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire raise the minimum wage?

"New Hampshire does not have a minimum wage. We defer to the Federal Minimum Wage. This must stop. I am very much in support of raising the minimum wage in legislature for New Hampshire."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire increase public access to reports of police misconduct?

"I support our law enforcement officers and believe they are an integral and important part of our community, however, because they can use lethal force in their job, police misconduct should be available to the public. There should be transparency. I believe that a good law enforcement agency would support transparency."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire continue to participate in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which requires utilities to purchase allowances for every ton of carbon they emit?

"For"

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire extend the renewable portfolio standard past 2025, requiring public utilities to obtain more than 25% of electricity from renewable energy sources?

"Renewable Energy Sources are critical as the globe is facing the biggest crisis imaginable as climate changes are causing larger and more frequent forest fires and more dangerous and frequent tornadoes and hurricanes. There is not doubt that we must do everything possible to reduce carbon."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire create a road usage fee?

"Would need more research."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should NH add a broad-based sales tax?

"I believe we need to explore our options to reduce property taxes and fund municipalities and schools across the state for a fair and balanced outcome for all. Covid-19 has seriously impacted the state revenue and the burden of the expenses the state cannot cover will fall to local property owners. We need to look for alternative ways to increase revenue to keep housing affordable and keep our young people in New Hampshire and our seniors in their own homes. A broad based tax would enable out-of-state shoppers and tourists to contribute to New Hampshire."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire increase the base amount of per-pupil funding it provides to local school districts?

"I am always in support of increasing funding for education. New Hampshire needs to improve funding for public education. I do not support school choice. We need to make sure all students in New Hampshire, regardless of economic status, receive the best and most comprehensive education."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire allocate tax revenues for private and home schooling costs?

"Public funding should be for public education. If someone choses a private school or decides to home school, that is a personal choice. The taxpayers should not have to fund private education."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire provide student loan debt repayment programs for workers in industries with labor shortages?

"I think this would be an excellent way to encourage a strong young workforce in New Hampshire. This would be very applicable for front-line healthy care workers and community services like our police and fire fighters."
