D.J. Bettencourt for State Representative

If voters in the Salem and Windham Republican primary on Tuesday, September 14, are looking for a knowledgeable, hard-working, conservative for their State Representative, they should look no further than my brother, Representative D.J. Bettencourt. As a young Republican who is eligible to vote

in my first Republican primary, I am very excited to vote for D.J. I know from intimate experience that integrity, commitment, and conviction are words that accurately describe his professional and private conduct. Like me, D.J. learned these values through faith, athletics, and community service. I also know that he has a deep passion and love for Salem, Windham, and all of New Hampshire.

Republicans are fortunate to have a solid field of candidates running for State Representative, and I would respectfully ask that you consider giving D.J. Bettencourt one of your 13 votes for State Representative.

Mike Downing is Best Choice for Sheriff

With the primary upon us Tuesday, September 14, it is now time to take a good look at the Republicans running for Sheriff. Although there are several good candidates, Mike Downing is the outstanding choice. I have known and worked with Mike in Concord and have found him to be hard-working, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. Mike’s background is excellent for this position.

The office of Sheriff needs someone who not only has experience in law enforcement, but who also can work with other divisions in County government. Mike is an Army veteran, an experienced police officer, served three terms in the NH House, and two in the NH Senate. He understands budgets, politics, and management. Most important of all, he is a compassionate, committed individual who will work hard to serve us in Rockingham County.

Supporting Jennifer Horn for Congress

Please join my friends and me in voting for

Jennifer Horn (R) for Congress in NH 2CD on Primary Day, Tuesday, September 14. Over the past four years, we’ve all gotten to know Jennifer Horn very well.

Jennifer is a true conservative

that believes in upholding the Constitution. She believes that lowering taxes will create more jobs, which will put our economy on an upward track. She believes in term limits, smaller government, and works very hard to put an end to these backroom, pork-barrel spending deals that have been going on to benefit other states. Over 90 percent of the money Jennifer Horn has raised for campaign has come from right here in New Hampshire, unlike her opponent that’s raised over 66 percent of his from Washington, New York, and even California, just to name a few. So taking that into consideration, there’s no doubt in our minds that Jennifer will represent you, me, and the rest of New Hampshire, and not the Washington Mucky Mucks. So again, please join my friends and me in

Support for Marilinda Garcia for State Representative

I want to encourage everyone to vote for Marilinda Garcia for State Rep in the Republican Primary on September 14. I’ve been friends with the Garcia family for

years, and I’ve known Marilinda to be a kind, intelligent, and principled young woman. And she’s taken that to the State House in her

two terms there, where she’s been a consistent advocate for limited government, local control, and traditional values. That doesn’t make her popular with the special interests, but she’s been a great Representative for Salem and Windham, and we should send her back up there for another term.
