Ralph Boehm Announces Candidacy for State Rep I am Ralph Boehm, a Republican

and a resident of Hillsborough District 27, which includes the towns of Hudson, Litchfield, and Pelham. I have been a resident of the district for more than 30 years. I am currently representing you as a state rep. and am on the Education Committee. In the past four years, the state legislature and governor has ruined the NH advantage. We need to turn that around. I will continue to say no to any tax increase, and no to any fee

increase. I will fight to make sure that the state does not force the towns to pay more for state services, thus increasing your property taxes. This was done by the Democrat-controlled legislature in the past session by giving less to the towns where that was normally done, and forcing the towns to pay more into the retirement funds.

I guess you can say that I will really fight for the middle class. It is interesting that the Democrats say that they are fighting for the middle class; I guess they think that the middle class is okay with higher vehicle registrations and the other fee increases that they have imposed. The legislature in the next few years has an uphill battle to fix the more than a $700 million deficit that Governor Lynch and the Democrats have left for us. Again, I will fight for you, not any special interests or

groups. I will fight to uphold the NH Constitution, and the U.S. Constitution, including the 10th Amendment that gives us state rights. Something that some of our current representatives know nothing about. Also, as a member of the Education Committee, I will fight for local control of your schools. You know what is best for your children—not someone in Washington or Concord. So please, I would appreciate your vote so I can continue the fight to protect your rights and pocketbooks. Re-elect Ralph Boehm, State Representative. Thank you in advance for your vote on November 2.

Lynne Ober Seeks Re-Election as State Rep

Incumbent Lynne Ober has announced her candidacy for State Representative. “It has been my pleasure to work with the people in my district throughout my three terms as State Rep,” smiled Ober. “I have tried to be a voice for the people who elected me.” During her tenure, Ober has

worked on several pieces of legislation. “Last year, I helped draft

educational reform legislation that would have provided more state funding for education in our district. Unfortunately, this legislation was defeated on party-line votes, with the Democrats voting not to support. As a result, Litchfield will lose more than $2 million in education funding, and funding will also be down slightly in Hudson.” For the past two terms, Ober has worked on the Finance Committee and watched the state’s budget grow by 30 percent.

“In the recession, most states were cutting their budgets, but in New Hampshire, the budgets grew astronomically. These inflated budgets passed on a party-line vote, with the majority party voting yes and the minority party voting no,” Ober paused, then adding, “Unfortunately, I was in the majority party.”

Ober has a committed position to no new taxes and to curtailing state spending. “We have to keep New Hampshire affordable for our families,” she said. Ober served for six years on the Hudson School Board and is committed to maintaining quality education. While on the School Board, she was the Board’s representative to the Budget Committee. She is a member of the Hudson Historical Society and a past Director for the Society. She is a member of the VFW Auxiliary, the Friends of the Library, and the Hudson Community Club. She is on the Board of the Friends of Benson Park and has contributed hours as a Benson Park volunteer.

Ober recently published a book on the history of Benson Animal Farm, and co-authored the book Hudson: Historically Speaking.

Russ Ober Announces Candidacy for Re-Election

Russell T. Ober III, incumbent State Representative, has announced his plans to seek re-election. “I have more work that I’d like to accomplish,” he said. Ober has served as Clerk of the Labor Committee, chaired several sub-committees investigating bills before the Labor Committee, and most recently served on Ways and Means.

“I’m committed to no new taxes and know the state must cut back on its exorbitant spending. During

the four years of the recession, the state budget has grown by 30 percent. Frankly, people are being taxed out of their homes and this must stop.” Ober, a retired Air Force officer, flew 265 combat missions in Vietnam. “Most people flew 100 missions and went home, but my unit was re-called over and over,” he said, and noted that was similar to assignments being given to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan today. He was awarded the prestigious Silver Star for Heroism for his part in the Son Tay prison raid. As a legislator, he works

tirelessly for veterans who need assistance. Ober, a member of Hudson’s Historical Society, participated in the Historical Society Old Home Days. “That’s a wonderful way to celebrate summer,” he smiled. He’s also a Hudson Trustee of the Trust Fund and serves on the Council of Aging, as well as a member of the VFW. Ober has two Bachelor of Arts degrees—one in Chemistry from Syracuse University and one in German from the University of Maryland, Heidelberg, Germany campus. He also earned a Master’s in Mathematics from Central Michigan University. While in the military, he completed Air Command and Staff College, Industrial College of the Armed Forces, and Air War College. Ober taught for 17 years at Alvirne High School in Hudson,

where he helped create the New Hampshire math test for 10th graders. “I’m well aware of the pressures facing educators and taxpayers to ensure that future generations of Americans are appropriately educated.” Ober loves the outdoors. He’s an avid runner who frequently participates in local road races. He also hikes, bikes, and skis. “New Hampshire has many opportunities for residents to enjoy the outdoors. I want to help preserve that heritage for future generations.”

State Representative Shaun Doherty Seeks Second Term

In my first term in the legislature, I’ve worked hard to listen to my constituents and act on your behalf. With each vote cast, I think about the future of New Hampshire and preserving what makes this a great state. I’ve lived in Pelham all of my life and graduated from Pelham High School, where I served as President of my class. This year, I earned a B.A. in Communications from Rivier College. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout with Troop 25 in the Boy Scouts of America. My focus in a second term will be a balanced budget

without raising taxes, improving the quality of education, and making New Hampshire a more business- friendly state.

Responsible budgeting is needed

to avoid more tax and spending increases. Every department in state government needs to be looked at to find ways to deliver services in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. New Hampshire cannot continue to balance the budget by depending on one-time stimulus dollars or simply charging debt on a credit card. I voted against the current budget, which was built on loans that future generations will still be paying interest on. It is my priority to ensure that my generation isn’t forced to pay off debt from mismanagement of our state.

New Hampshire needs to be a more business-friendly state, and a place where companies have a reason to move jobs here. This can be accomplished by lowering the state’s business taxes and incentivizing the creation of local jobs. We can also improve our state’s economy through a strong curriculum in our schools. I sponsored legislation to bring finance education to every high school student in the state. It is critically important for students to be educated in personal finance and learn the fundamentals of our economy. With this knowledge, students will be given the tools to make better financial decisions and be able to compete for high- paying jobs in the future. If you would like to learn more, please visit my Website at www., or give me a call at 860-2293. I ask for your vote on November 2 because the time is now to fix our problems and keep our state moving forward.
