To the Editor:
How many people are paying attention to the 2018 elections? This November could be a turning point for our state, nation, and planet, so voters better get involved!
We need to elect new State Representatives who work for our communities and our rights! Over 100 Legislators voted this spring for CACR 19, the Community Rights Amendment, to give our towns the right to pass ordinances that protect our citizens and environment from unwanted, dangerous, and destructive development. Unfortunately many more opposed CACR 19 in order to protect greed-driven special interests that hurt our towns.
There will be Congressional elections as well as an election for governor, and you know that corporate PACs (political action committees) will bribe our candidates with legal (but immoral) campaign contributions. If they take PAC bribes, then we should vote them out. We have the best politicians money can buy, but We the People can change that!
All politics are local, so we need to get organized town by town and in our cities. You may contact the NH Community Rights Network (nhcommunityrights.org) to get assistance with local efforts that protect the health, safety, and welfare of people and nature.
Please do your civic duty and support candidates who put our towns and cities and Nation ahead of greedy special interests; do it for our Country, do if for our children, do it for Mother Nature and planet Earth!
