SAMPLE TALKING POINTS
Vote NO ITL on CACR19: Protect Rights of Real People Over Corporations
"I encourage you to support placing the NH Community Rights Amendment CACR19 on the November ballot for a democratic vote by the People. The need for a state constitutional amendment securing and protecting the Right of Local Community Self-Government is obvious. Today, the law elevates rights of private corporations over the rights of people who live in New Hampshire communities. Private corporations regularly invoke these rights and privileges when their interests conflict with the communities' attempts to protect local health, safety and welfare. CACR19 protects the rights of real people in New Hampshire over the interests of private corporations. Vote NO ITL on CACR19."
Vote NO ITL on CACR19: Protect NH People & Natural Resources
"I ask you to support the NH Community Rights Amendment CACR19, which empowers our communities with local governing authority to protect our health, safety and welfare along with the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil we grow our food in. The NH Community Rights Amendment makes clear that people and municipalities can only use their lawmaking power to enact local laws that create greater protections for people, communities, and nature, NOT to restrict or weaken fundamental rights. Protect the people and natural resources of New Hampshire by voting in favor of placing CACR19 on the November ballot. Vote NO ITL on CACR19."
Vote NO ITL on CACR19: Protect Local Governing Authority
"I encourage you to support the NH Community Rights Amendment CACR19 because it is the activities of corporations, not the rights of people that the state holds authority to regulate. Rights of natural people must come first. It is the right of people to govern the activities of corporations that are chartered in the "name of the people". It is unjust for the state to place governance of corporate behavior beyond the people, limiting the use of local governments by the citizens. The people have an inherent and unalienable right of self-government in the communities where they live, including authority to govern the behavior of business activities. Support local control and vote NO ITL on CACR19."
