HUDSON, N.H.—State Rep. Jordan Ulery, a champion of equal rights, open government and civic interaction, would bring his respect for others and the New Hampshire values of fiscal and personal responsibility to the Republican National Committee if state committee members choose him on Jan. 22 to replace the national committeeman seat vacated by Sean Mahoney.
Ulery, who is serving his fourth term in the N.H. House on the distinguished Ways and Means Committee, said he would bring to the Republican National Committee the same “no-nonsense approach” to problem solving that he hopes will help lift the state from its current fiscal quagmire.
“New Hampshire is the birthplace of the GOP, and New Hampshire values are what’s needed at the table in Washington right now,” Ulery said. “Instead of being a participant in the business-as-usual politics of the national GOP, I would be a voice for New Hampshire Republicans. I would bring Granite Staters’ concerns and desires to the national convention and help promote like-minded conservative candidates for major office positions in the coming years.”
Recently, Ulery has been outspoken about the need for all Americans to participate together in civil society, decrying the segregation that comes from population segments that live apart because of their separate language and culture. He said he would bring his sense of respect for all people with him to Washington to help unite today’s Americans for the good of the country.
“Historically, segregation has discouraged community collaboration and fueled intolerance, which often results in groups of second-class citizens that are simply left behind,” Ulery said. “It’s important for us to recognize this problem and encourage increased communication with members of these populations, so at least we can stimulate a cross-cultural exchange. Eventually, we can help these populations assimilate into our culture and use our language so they can fully participate in civil society and reach their highest level of potential success.”
Because of Ulery’s sentiments of justice for all and equality under the law, he has recently drawn public ire from some Democrats, who misrepresented his comments in an effort to drive division within the diverse communities of the state. Ulery said the Democrats’ attack is a clear sign that he is not a traditional career politician who will advance the political machinery that has so far divided the nation. In fact, it shows the Democrats are worried about his potential success and what it might mean for the people of New Hampshire. In fact, upon Ulery’s election to national committeeman, New Hampshire would be sending a voice for the common man.
In his capacity as state representative, Ulery is working on more than 20 bills that capture the Republican mission to lift people up. In general, his bills encourage government oversight, improve revenue forecasting, reduce the cost of government, modernize government procedures, improve private health care coverage, respect veterans, strengthen the constitution, protect personal privacy, ensure consumer protections, secure parental rights, benefit traditional marriage and reform family law. Ulery hopes to bring many of these sentiments with him to Washington.
At the Republican State Committee Meeting on Jan. 22 in Derry, Ulery will ask state committee members to elect him to the national committeeman position to serve the rest of Sean Mahoney’s four-year term through 2012. Mahoney resigned during this year’s campaign. The winner will serve with National Committeewoman Phyllis Woods and either Jack Kimball or Juliana Bergeron, who are competing for the State GOP Party Chairman position. Each state has three posts on the Republican National Committee, which develops and promotes the national Republican platform, coordinates fund raising and election strategy and organizes the Republican National Convention, which is when the party nominates the GOP presidential candidate.
