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. “During my tenure, I have met many people in Pelham. I participated in their Old Home Day and ran in the race

held there. I think it’s important to participate in activities in the communities that I represent and I pledge to continue to do that if re- elected. Pelham has some of the same growth problems as Hudson and Litchfield. Growth affects all areas of Town—from traffic, especially in Pelham Town Center, to education.” “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 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.”

Equal Opportunity Lender

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.

DiFruscia Considering

a Write-In Candidacy Representative Anthony R. DiFruscia has announced he will not be supporting any of the Republican nominees for State Representative in Salem and Windham who are members or supporters of the House Republican Alliance. This includes David Bates, Marilinda Garcia, D.J. Bettencourt, and Walter Kolodziej. DiFruscia is considering a write-in candidacy for the November 2 general election as an Independent. Many of Representative DiFruscia’s colleagues in

the State House have encouraged him to run as an Independent write-in candidate. Among the representatives that have asked him to return to Concord are Rep. Dennis Abbott, Rep. Beth Arsenault, Rep. Delmar Burridge, Rep. Jackie Cali-Pitts, Rep. Frank Case, Rep. Rich DiPentima, Rep. Bill Hatch, Rep. Melanie Levesque, Rep. Steve Lindsey, Rep. Bonnie Mitchell, Rep. Gil Shattuck, and Rep. Jayne Spaulding. Rep. DiFruscia’s supporters also include former representatives and local officials Carol Yennaco, Richard Cooney, Ruth-Ellen Post, Ross McLeod, Pat Hargreaves, Ed Gallagher, and Bruce Anderson. After receiving the support of so many of his colleagues, Representative DiFruscia announced he will make his decision by the end of the week.

Donna Mauro for Salem and

Windham Representative I watched a made-for-TV movie a

few years ago about Virtual Reality. The plot was about not being able to tell the difference between what is real and what is Virtually Real. In Virtual Reality, there are no consequences. You can shoot a person, supposedly dead, and they will be alive in the next scene. It seems to me our Governor and too many of our Legislators are having the same struggle in telling the difference between a real budget and a Virtual Reality Budget.

In Governor Lynch’s Virtual Reality Budget, the state budget is balanced and there is a surplus. In reality, increased spending, rising caseloads, and failure to meet revenue estimates have left New Hampshire with a budget deficit. Do we want to live in Virtual Reality for as long as we can, get

away with it, and leave the consequences to future generations? Or do we want to do the hard thing now, which is deal with the budget in a way that fixes our economy, allows real, long-term jobs to be created by the “Private Sector,” and leaves most of your money in your pocket, not in government coffers? My name is Donna Mauro and I have the skills and determination needed to address the problems with the real budget. My husband and I own a small High Tech business in Salem. We have been balancing budgets, creating jobs, and living within our means for over 25 years.

I am running for State Representative from Rockingham District 4, Salem/Windham. You can vote for me on Tuesday, November 2.
