In the last election, I was grateful, and humbled, that the voters of Sullivan County District 11 ignored the hype, the partisan rhetoric, and the noise, in giving me another chance to serve. I have tried to be a worthy public servant. I have made a difference where I can, advocated for our towns, and answered questions for constituents. I’m asking for your trust again. Today, I filed for re-election. I have more to do. I want to pursue setting up a text 911 system in NH. I want the state to move out of the past and explore new millennium opportunities for privately funded public transportation. Most of all, I want to right a wrong. On May 15th, the NH House rejected a constitutional amendment resolution providing that revenue from fees and assessments shall be used only for the special program for which such fees or assessments were imposed. In other words, should we put on the ballot, for you to vote on, an amendment requiring us to use your money for the reason we gave when we took it. While the Senate passed this 21-2, the NH House preferred not to hear what you think. I’m asking for your vote to send me back to Concord so that I can make sure that they hear you loud and clear this time.
Rep. Steven Smith
