Good Sir, I am a state employee calling 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.

I'll say what's been said a million times. Alcohol is 50 times more dangerous than THC. or to the layman, Marijuana. Think about CO, recreational use of pot has been legal there for years now and there has been no problems because of it. I saw a report that said traffic accidents were up because of pot. NOT TRUE. The accidents are up everywhere cause people can't put their phones down for 20 min to get where their going without running up someone's ars. The point is pot should be legal. It's the best pain killer in the world and doesn't come with the terrible physical addiction as opiates do.

Hi Joe, I think your doing a great job, so thank you. I was watching a YouTube Video called: “Sound Money Project Interview Series: Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr.” The link to this video is blow, but if you do not want to fallow the link you can type in the title of the video into YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mI8Lek60_w Dr. Edwin Vieira is a well known lawyer and argued several cases in front of the US Supreme Court and won. He raises many good points related to Sound Money. One point was related to how a state should setup a financial insurance plan. I think every member of our NH Congress should watch this video and consider his ideas. I’m glad I did! Let me know what you think. Thank you

There was a mass shooting at my local paper last year. I began to pay more attention. Then I saw something happening to more journalists. Then I began to provide analysis.... Before our government was willing to call it an assassination The Capital Gazette of Annapolis saw fit to do so using my voice. https://www.capitalgazette.com/opinion/letters/ac-ce-letters-20182024-story,amp.html

Greetings, My name is Jason Dunlap. I am a retired Sergeant First Class, NSA polyglot, and JSOC interrogator who is seeking the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2020 election. There is a lot to unpack from that last sentence, but I assure you that every word is true. In 1997, at the age of 17, I enlisted under President Clinton, served faithfully under President Bush, and was medically retired under President Obama. I was granted a Top Secret/SCI clearance and became a member of the USIC before I was able to legally purchase alcohol. By the conclusion of my service I had earned four college degrees, learned 5 languages, practiced tactical and strategic intelligence across the USIC, and even managed to earn the official recognition of the United States Congress. I will begin by explaining why I have chosen to run. The path of my service has taken me to some of the darkest places on the planet, but no matter how far into the darkness I ventured I could always look toward home to see light. With each passing day, thru the erosion of the intuitional and societal norms by the current administration I have watched that light fade. From the beginning of my career and even into retirement I was taught that my safety was dependent upon avoiding the spotlight, but with the attacks upon the press, the assassination of a journalist, and the granting of access to top secret information based upon personal relationships, I begin to see the personal safeties of more than just myself to be at risk. Let me be clear that I am asking for your voice and your vote, but I will NOT be accepting any form of monetary donation. I am running an asymmetrical campaign that is intended to be the prologue to an asymmetrical administration. Should you choose to join me and wish to express agency thru money I ask that you give it to Flint Michigan, Puerto Rico or to legal help for immigrants being mistreated for seeking a better life. Afterward post on social media using #JsocPolyglot or #2ndEnlistedPotus to share it or contact your local news. I am asking this so that you will begin to see each bumper sticker as a bottle of water and every political advertisement as an area having power restored. I will also accept as donations, any acts of kindness or courage. If see you one of the many acts of bigotry that seem to be occurring almost daily, stand against it in order to show you stand WITH me.  This will be how we change the political and social landscape going forward. Please feel free to contact me via twitter @Red_eyedJedi with questions or for more detailed information on myself personally and my policies. I thank you for your time and consideration.   Respectfully, Jason Evritte Dunlap SFC/MI/Ret. NSA polyglot JSOC interrogator HUMINT/ SIGINT instructor 4 college degrees 3 wars 4 screws/2 pins (0 bonespurs) #JsocPolyglot #2ndEnlistedPotus FEC ID#: P00010132 The committee to put backbone in the Whitehouse (Jason Dunlap)

Hello, Mr. Steyer. I've been a Paul Krugman fan for years, and hope that you have similar views on economics and business. To add one thing to the above questions and answers, I'd like to see a much stronger war on meth trafficking, such as involving the Mexican govt and US military in destroying meth producers and traffickers. It's caused a lot of ruined lives, a lot of petty crime and some violent crime in my state and many other states, and adds greatly to the corruption within Mexico. I support relaxing rather than tightening the borders with Mexico and Canada, doing away with Trump's border nonsense, and enlisting Mexican help with a real war on drugs. I'd happily support "foreign aid" to fight corruption in Mexico, and happily support the US military bombing the crap out of drug traffickers wherever they are found. I support this rather than the wimpy law enforcement route to ending drug trafficking.

I'm not so familiar with you as a candidate, but love your state and it's progressive traditions. And I've vacationed there with my parents years ago in the Detroit Lakes area. I do have a comment.
