AFPNH - Will the new "Consumer Advocate" Keep the Lights on in NH?

I hope that everyone's electricity has been restored following the recent snow storm. If the experience left you feeling a little powerless, I encourage you to contact Governor Lynch at 271-2121 and urge him to make sure the Public Utilities Commission looks into how PSNH mishandled this storm and were caught unprepared to restore power to their customers.

On a related note with regard to power, this Wednesday the NH Executive Council will hold a vote on the nomination of Meredith Hatfield to continue in her role as NH Consumer Advocate.

The website for the NH Consumer Advocate’s office displays their charge as, “Working on behalf of NH’s utility ratepayers.”

Unfortunately, I believe Ms. Hatfield is not up to the task outlined on the website due to her support of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

As you know, RGGI is nothing more than a failed cap-and-trade scheme that has led to INCREASES for NH’s ratepayers.  Ms. Hatfield cannot be an advocate for NH ratepayers AND an advocate for RGGI.

Call or email your Executive Councilor today, and tell them to stand up for NH families and electric customers by OPPOSING the nomination of Meredith Hatfield as NH Consumer Advocate.

Did you miss the Americans for Prosperity Foundation
Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington, D.C. last weekend? Our friends at GraniteGrok and AFPF have got all the coverage you need. See the links below:

GRANITEGROK: AFP's Defending the Dream Summit - Complete Opening Session

Herman Cain and Mitt Romney at the Defending the American Dream Summit

as you may have heard, things took a turn toward the ugly as some of the activists who traveled to D.C. to attend the Summit and hear from many of our nation’s leading conservative voices and receive grassroots training were met with violence from members of the "Occupy DC" movement. 

Finally, please review our
Granite Gatherings Section for details on events around the state including my latest upcoming speaking engagements. I am pleased to have been asked to attend the Contoocook Valley Republican Committee Meeting on November 14, the Rochester Republican City Committee Meeting on November 15 and the Merrimack County Republican Committee Meeting on November 28. Please remember that I would be delighted to speak at any of your upcoming meetings. If you would like me to do so, you can always contact Joy King or myself.
