Campaign Goes Door-to-Door to Get Out Message of Fiscal Responsibility

Derry—Paul Martineau, the Democratic candidate for Executive Council in District 4, and dozens of volunteers continued his grass roots effort by taking the campaign directly to the voters on Saturday, October 7, 2006.

They gathered at 10:00 AM at the Marion Gerrish Community Center, in Derry, New Hampshire, before heading out into the community to talk with the people of District 4.  The volunteers knocked on doors to explain why Paul Martineau is the best choice to represent the people of New Hampshire in the Executive Council.

Paul Martineau said, "I am pleased that so many of my friends and neighbors joined me this Saturday.  You can tell that the campaign has a lot of momentum."

"People want a candidate that they can trust with their tax dollars." Martineau remarked.  He continued, "This election asks who you will trust to fight taxes.  I have a proven record of fiscal responsibility.  I want to save money for the state and for the taxpayers.

Discussing the strong bipartisan support he is receiving, Paul Martineau said, "Our district is tired of Patronage Politics.  I am running because I want to work with Governor Lynch to help move New Hampshire forward."

Martineau's support of Governor Lynch contrasts with his opponent's support for former Governor Craig Benson.  In Saturday's editions of the New Hampshire Union Leader, a Wieczorek campaign ad contained a large photo of, and accolades from, Governor Craig Benson. 

Asked about the Wieczorek-Benson alignment, the Martineau campaign cited a recent statement by Governor Lynch: "As Welfare Commissioner, Paul Martineau has worked hard to serve the people of Manchester. Paul Martineau is a dedicated public servant who understands the needs of New Hampshire's working families and the importance of watching out for taxpayer dollars."

Paul Martineau plans to meet as many voters as possible between now and Election Day, November 7th


Paul Martineau is the Manchester Welfare Commissioner.  For the past 4 ½ years, he has saved taxpayers millions of dollars by cutting costs and significantly reducing welfare fraud and abuse.  With the help of the people of District 4, he plans to bring this same work ethic and resolve to the Executive Council.
