Manchester - First District Congressional Candidate Gary Dodds (D-Rye) today
responded to the President's State of the Union Address by saying the speech
ignored one of the most glaring issues facing the country: corruption and
scandal at every level of the government.

"I wonder if the Democrats had been at the center of what is, arguably, the
most widespread case of corruption in American political history, if the
President would have missed the opportunity to make comment - I doubt it,"
said Dodds.

"The indictments and resignations of some of our top political leaders due to
money laundering, bribery and leaking classified information warrant at least
a comment, one would think. Instead, the President told us how we would one
day power our cars by burning switch grass in the tanks."

Dodds also noted that the President's picture of a sound economy was less than
accurate.

"If you really want a good picture of the economy, pick up the local newspaper
and look at all the listings of foreclosure notices. There are more than
there have ever been, and that idicates anything but a sound economy."

Gary Dodds is Chief Financial Officer of Accent Magazine and lives in Rye with
Cindy, his wife of 15 years and their two daughter Alissa and Lauren. Dodds
is seeking the Democratic nomination in the New Hampshire's First Congressional District.
