Dave Walsh - Litchfield Why I Am Supporting Karen Testerman for Governor
Why am I supporting Karen Testerman to be our next governor? Karen’s beliefs are so much like my own that I can’t not try to help her campaign. Karen’s campaign of conservative values includes, but is not limited to, refusing unfunded federal mandates or even with federal dollars that will lead to a future fiscal crisis in New Hampshire. The federal government has violated its constitutional role and taken away many of the rights reserved to the states, making New Hampshire dependent at many levels. Karen Testerman will support reintroduction of firearms safety training for young adults, and she will ask the General Court to reintroduce a Parental Notification Bill and open hearings on the end-of-
life laws that threaten our elderly. I agree with Karen Testerman that gambling
should not be a source of revenue for the state and should only be considered on whether it benefits or detracts from our New Hampshire, quality way of life. I have not done a lengthy comparison of how my viewpoints are a mirror image of Karen’s Testerman’s, as her Website, www.karentesterman. net, will provide a wealth of insights and information to make an informed decision at the polls on Election Day for the primary and general elections. The time has arrived for a new way of looking at
how the State of New Hampshire can recapture its heritage and reputation, and that new way is with voting for Karen Testerman. There’s only one way for the voters to understand what the new way meant to the State of New Hampshire, and that’s by looking back one year after she’s been elected at what a new way looks like. I’ve known Karen Testerman since the late 1990s and although we became disconnected as we both moved around the same time and lost track of each other, I knew that when I became aware of her campaign, I had to help her get elected.

Support for Jennifer Horn for Congress
The people of New Hampshire’s 2nd district
have a critical choice to make shortly. They can support Charlie Bass, if they want a Congressman who, based on his 12-year record in the House, sponsored a Cap & Trade bill; opposed oil and gas exploration in Alaska and the Gulf; opposed lobbyist transparency; opposed the right to appeal property seizure due to zoning laws; openly supports abortion; broke his term-limits promise; consistently supported deficit spending; promoted Global-Warming climate-change constraints for America (Kyoto Protocol); and supported a bill allowing minors to be transported across State lines for abortions without parental consent.
Or they could choose a candidate who will honor the Constitution (to the letter), including States’ rights; fight for a balanced Federal Budget amendment; repeal National Healthcare; outlaw earmarks; enact sensible term-limits; promote lobbyist transparency; require sunset provisions for all spending; shrink the size of the bloated Federal Government (and reduce federal tax rates); secure our nation’s borders; fight illegal immigration, and promote a balanced energy independence plan. Unequivocally, that candidate is Jennifer Horn. As we speak, across our nation, dozens of new, fresh, passionate individuals are stepping up and running for Congress—because they have seen enough arrogance, corruption, and entitlement from career politicians, who are more concerned about party politics and the next election than the next generation. This new class of “citizen legislators,” along with Jennifer, can lead the change we truly need in Washington, re-routing our United States back to the path envisioned by the Founders.
Tom Flaherty - Milford School Supplies Collection
The Litchfield Presbyterian Community Church is collecting school supplies to be given to needy Litchfield children through the Litchfield Community Food Pantry. The food pantry is a ministry of the Board of Deacons, and together with generous donations from the community, has provided Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter
food baskets, as well as Christmas gifts for over 90 children this past year. Numerous local families continue to use the food pantry all year long and throughout the summer months. As the local economy continues to struggle,
many family budgets suffer and basic back-to- school supplies can be difficult or impossible to purchase. In an effort to help these families with school-age children, school supplies are being collected and will be distributed through the food pantry. Back-to-school sales in stores have already begun, so please consider picking up a few extra supplies and donating them to help local children. Items can be dropped off at the church office/food pantry at 259 Charles Bancroft Highway across from the fire station, or at a collection box located in Town Hall at 2 Liberty Way. Efforts are also being coordinated with the help of St. Francis, and donations can be dropped off there as well. Cash donations can also be made with checks payable to Litchfield Presbyterian Church, and please write “school supplies” on the memo line so they can be directed appropriately.
Some suggested items for elementary-school students: backpacks, lunch boxes, crayons, markers, pencils, erasers, pencil boxes, glue sticks, pocket folders, non-spiral notebooks, hand sanitizer, and healthy snacks such as packaged crackers, fruit cups, granola bars, etc. Suggestions for middle- and high-school students, in addition to the items listed above, include: highlighters, pens, spiral notebooks – both single- and multiple-subject, three-ring binders, filler paper, graph paper, notebook dividers, calculators, and three-hole punches. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the church office at 424-6057 or Cindy at 889-2148.

Attorneys, Millionaires, and Me Are you fed up with the people who represent
us in Washington? Are you fed up with the people who follow the party line and vote away our freedoms? Are you wondering who these people are that are leading this country down the wrong path?
Do attorneys and millionaires come to mind? As of November 2009, there were 157 attorneys
(36 percent) in the House and 54 in the Senate; there were 237 millionaires (54 percent) in the House and 40 in the Senate. Thomas Jefferson said, “If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, and talk by the hour?“ Are we going to be part of the solution or part of the problem? We complain all the time that: the people in
Washington don’t listen to us, do what they want and forget about us, the ones who sent them there; that there’s never anyone in Washington that “really represents us,” that we always get the raw end of the deal! Ever wonder how they got there? We vote for them time and time again! Do we want more attorneys or millionaires in
Washington leading us down the road to who knows where? I say no! Now is the time to stand up for ourselves, shake off the status quo, and bring common sense back to our country! There is one candidate who is neither an attorney nor a millionaire, and who considers you family, friend, and neighbor. One who knows the pain of losing a job, paying the bills, and just making ends meet. That one candidate is me, Dennis Lamare. I don’t have all the answers to the problems facing this world, but I do have life experiences and common sense to take on the issues. I never take for granted the things that matter most to us: freedom, life, and the American Dream! I will always look to the Constitution to make my decisions to do what is right for America, good for New Hampshire, and keep the trust that you put in me as your Senator. This election, let’s finally do the right thing for
ourselves and for New Hampshire! The right thing is when you cast your vote, vote as if your future depends on it ... because it does! Vote “For Me,” not me, Dennis, per se, but say to yourself, “this vote is for me!” Then, your vote for me, Dennis, will be the solution in Washington against the attorneys and millionaires that are the problem.
Dennis Lamare, Candidate for U.S. Senate - Lee
