Position on Issues

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2018

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

"This question is too vague. We could stand to increase some forms of subsidies and tax credits, but not others."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2018

Should NH pass stricter gun control laws?

"I consider myself a moderate on gun issues, and legislation dealing with firearms and related topics often ends up being rather complex. I examine every gun bill we get, and my vote is often influenced by the 'minor details' in the legislation. Generally speaking I favor common sense policies such as universal background checks, restrictions on 'cop killer' ammo sales, and banning military heavy weapons from civilian ownership but I don't support things like 'wide net' gun confiscation. As a moderate on gun issues, neither 'side' usually likes me on this one."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2018

Should NH add an income tax on earned income?

"Not unless it was part of a package that SIGNIFICANTLY reduced/replaced our reliance on property taxes. I am opposed to an income tax on its own, though I would support expanding the existing interest & dividends tax to a more general capital gains tax."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2018

Should NH legalize the recreational use of marijuana?

"I support marijuana legalization."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2018

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?

"I support New Hampshire's participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2018

Should NH add a broad-based sales tax?

"Not unless it was part of a package that SIGNIFICANTLY reduced/replaced our reliance on property taxes. I am opposed to a sales tax on its own."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2018

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

"I oppose allocating tax revenues for private and/or home schooling costs."
