AFPNH - Help us Defend the American Dream in Washington, DC!


Dear Robert

First, I hope you will attend the Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington, D.C. this November 4-5! I have personally attended this event, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity Foundation, for the last four years. It is a great opportunity to gather with other conservative activists and hear from leading public policy makers on the most important issues of our day. I am sure this year will be no exception.

This year’s speakers include Mark Levin, Herman Cain, John Fund, Andrew Breitbart, Jonah Goldberg, Ken Cuccinelli, Ann McElhinney, and Grover Norquist.

Information on general registration can be found by clicking here.

Additionally, a bus of fellow activists from Maine will be making a stop in Portsmouth, N.H. en route to D.C. Please click here  for more information on that travel option.

We want to make this trip as easy as possible for you. If you need additional information or have questions that are not answered in the links above, please feel free to email either myself or Joy King and we will be happy to help.

Secondly, a final reminder that tomorrow, October 13, I will be part of a panel discussion moderated by the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart entitled, “Solving our Fiscal Crisis: What’s Wrong with Washington?” at the NHIOP at St. Anselm College in Manchester from 2:30PM to 5:00PM.

The event will also include remarks from several presidential candidates including Governor Buddy Roemer and Governor Jon Huntsman.

Please click here for more details or send an email to to RSVP!

Third, with all the presidential candidates literally and figuratively in our backyards, it can be easy to lose sight of the issues going on here in New Hampshire. Here are a couple of items you should be aware of.

The New Hampshire House Ways and Means Committee is currently reviewing HB 593, which could provide additional opportunities to lower taxes on businesses in our state.      

As you have probably read, Massachusetts is very close to passing similar legislation in their state. While this issue has been raised in New Hampshire before, Massachusetts’ serious consideration places our own legislators in a position where they must carefully consider how best to implement potential revenue sources in our state. We hope the legislature will do everything possible to maintain the business friendly environment for which New Hampshire is known.

Additionally, public hearings will be held in each county next month on the subject of redistricting. This redistricting process will determine the districts for New Hampshire’s House, Executive Council, County Commissioners, and two Congressional Districts. I encourage you to attend if possible.

These two issues will have a significant impact on our state in both the short and long-term.  We will continue to monitor these and other issues and keep you informed.

Finally, we appreciate your support of our efforts here in New Hampshire and hope you will consider clicking here to make a donation today.
