Letters to the editor

Lamontagne is best choice for governor

To the editor:

I am writing this letter in support of Ovide Lamontagne for governor. There is no question in my mind that Ovide is the best person to lead New Hampshire in these difficult economic times. His business experience will certainly be a plus as he deals with the tough state budget process he will ultimately face. As the former chairman of the State Board of Education, he certainly understands the issues facing Derry and other New Hampshire towns as they grapple to balance a great education with limited tax dollars.

On a personal note, Ovide is one of the finest individuals I have had the pleasure to meet and get to know. He will be a fantastic ambassador for our state and will make us proud to live in New Hampshire. Whether you agree or disagree with me, you know he will always do what he thinks is right!

Please join me in voting for the best candidate for governor, Ovide Lamontagne.

Smith has experience needed for governor

To the editor:

Kevin Smith is my choice for governor this Sept. 11 because of his experience in both the public and private sector. Smith has worked in the Statehouse before, and knows that success in government requires bipartisan efforts.

Kevin Smith is a conservative candidate who is willing to work for the best interests of New Hampshire regardless of party affiliation. Smith has outlined a specific plan, he is the only candidate to do so, of his goals for his time in office. Smith wants to cut taxes on businesses to encourage more businesses to move their operations to The Granite State. Additionally, Smith does not support the Obamacare mandate in New Hampshire — he is willing to work for other reforms to help lower insurance costs.
