“The NH state legislature has resumed committee work after our summer break. We had a very successful year, achieving several goals aimed at maintaining and furthering New Hampshire’s Advantage and reaffirming its status as a beacon of freedom, especially in New England and the Northeast. Among the achievements,
- We passed a budget that not only gives us tax cuts, but we actually cut government spending – that’s what winning looks like!
- We took a giant step forward toward breaking up the monopoly that has been over our state’s education system resulting in ever-increasing spending and ever-decreasing results. We passed the Education Freedom Act that allows the state’s portion of education dollars to follow students to the school of their choice, whether that be a public school, a private school, a charter school, or homeschool: wherever is best suited for the student.
- Babies are now safe in the womb after 24 weeks. It still grieves my heart that there is even a question, but I will take the victory as it is and go forward.
This second year will probably be even busier as actions at the national level are putting tremendous pressure on states to respond defensively against the usurpation of power by the federal government. To make matters worse, not one of New Hampshire’s elected Representatives or Senators in Washington DC has offered any pushback.
No, they are all rubber stamps allowing the destruction of America.
In light of what is happening now and what I am sure awaits us in the near future between now and the 2022 elections, and after much prayerful consideration, I am officially announcing that I am challenging Ann Kuster for New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District in 2022. I am going to need your help. She has lots of money to spend campaigning. But we can win this. Spread the word. Tell everyone you know. Post on social media.
We must make changes now, or we will not have a 2024 to look forward to.
Let’s make this Kuster’s last stand!
Current NH State Representative
Wentworth, New Hampshire
Update: June 9,2021
I am responding after two hard fought days trying to get good pieces of legislation passed. None of us are perfect and I have made my share of freshman mistakes. We lost some key battles due to some extremely weak Republicans. Those are the ones you should be focusing on.
Have you participated in hearings this year? Have you sent notes of encouragement when a legislator votes according to our constitution? Have you started recruiting strong constitutional candidates yet? Are you recruiting, training, and raising funds yet? Have you paid the costs of sending legislators to the ALEC conference? Or Wallbuilders Pro-Family Legislative conference? Here’s an easier one, how about mowing their lawn, splitting wood, or helping them get their gardens planted? We are not all wealthy, young, and healthy but still often give 40 plus hours a week on legislative work for a whopping 100 bucks a year.
Spend some time building up the slightly imperfect legislators or you will loose them and end up with democrats instead.
My final word, PRAY for these hard working legislators. Pray without ceasing!
God bless, Beth
