There’s a lot to fix in this country, Scott Brown said at a Nashua Rotary lunch on Monday, including a lack of leadership at the top.

“The world is on fire,” said Brown at the start of his remarks Monday. He spoke of international issues such as Ebola, military buildup in China, kidnappings by Boko Haram and fighting in Syria, citing a lack of leadership.

Brown is running against Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen and delivered a pro-business message while highlighting differences between him and Shaheen during his remarks at the Nashua Country Club..

“This race is going to be about differences,” Brown said. “She’s a good person. I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again and again. We just have different ways of looking at things.”

Brown illustrated differences in votes on issues including border security and energy issues.

On border security. “I voted to send troops to the border, Senator Shaheen didn’t,” Brown said.

On energy: “Senator Shaheen is against coal, she’s against nuclear,” Brown said. “She’s against focusing and helping step back from our dependence on foreign oil.”

Brown listed corporate taxes, rising energy and healthcare costs as obstacles to New Hampshire businesses.

“The only thing worse than voting 99 percent with the president is voting 100 percent against small businesses,” said Brown.


Garcia For Congress (CD2) - ICYMI: Garcia tours Jaffrey factory as she campaigns for Congress 



In case you missed it, The Keene Sentinel yesterday published this article which explains why a local small-business owner is supporting Marilinda Garcia instead of Ann Kuster. According to the article:

“At the time, Pelkey attempted to get help from Democratic Rep. Ann M. Kuster, the incumbent defending her 2nd Congressional District seat against Garcia in the Nov. 4 election.

Pelkey said he didn’t get an answer from Kuster, leading him to place his faith in Republican candidates.”

The article went on to say “he said he was also concerned about excessive regulation for businesses, and said he likes that Garcia supports reducing the number of regulations businesses must follow.

“She has the knowledge and the experience, and just the right ingredients,” he said.”

An ‘Opportunity for All’ To Be Heard

Concord, NH– Kenny Cunningham, communications director for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, released the following statement announcing that Marilinda Garcia will host 5 townhall meetings before the November 4 election:

“In honoring a New Hampshire tradition and the expectations of integrity and openness from our candidates, Marilinda Garcia will host 5 townhall meetings in New Hampshire’s Second District before Election Day, starting on October 7th, in Littleton. These townhall meetings will offer voters an honest opportunity to interact one-on-one with Marilinda and discuss with her the important issues facing our state and our nation.”

Cunningham went on to say, “Although Ann Kuster has yet to respond to our request to participate in a townhall forum, we would like to renew our invitation to her, and urge her to attend any of the below townhall meetings. We see no reason for her to miss these valuable opportunities to meet with the people of New Hampshire, and thus we will be prepared for her participation in every forum.”

“Additionally, we have provided directions to each meeting for Ann Kuster, and we are more than willing to facilitate her travel arrangements so that she is finally able to participate in a townhall meeting. Ann Kuster has never held a townhall meeting and her constituents deserve the opportunity to share their concerns and views with their representative to Congress.”

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Guinta Tours New Horizons in Manchester with Senator Ayotte

Tour focused on New Horizons' core mission

MANCHESTER – September is "Hunger Action Month," and Frank Guinta observed it yesterday with a tour of New Horizons in Manchester. He was accompanied by Senator Kelly Ayotte and the tour was led by Charlie Sherman, New Horizons’ Executive Director. 

New Horizons is an adult homeless shelter, a soup kitchen, food pantry and operates Angie's Shelter for Women in Manchester. 

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"It was an honor to take a tour of New Horizons with Senator Ayotte and Charlie Sherman. We discussed the ongoing challenges presented by mental illness and substance abuse issues.  Having a family member with a mental illness brings clarity to the issue and this will remain a top priority of mine.  We have a responsibility to help those most in need who are incapable of caring for themselves.  Thank you to New Horizons for the tremendous role they play in our community, I look forward to working with them in the future."



CONCORD - Today, Scott Brown visited Charles Leonard Steel Services to tour the workshop and meet employees.  The company, which has grown from 15 to 30 employees over the past five years, remains concerned with increasing health care premiums from Obamacare and high energy costs to power machinery.

"Obamacare and high energy costs continue to be a wet blanket on small businesses and families across the Granite State," said Brown.  "New Hampshire is ready for new leadership in Washington to repeal Obamacare and work on an all-of-the-above plan for energy independence.  Unlike Senator Shaheen, I do not support a national energy tax or a one-size-fits all approach to our health care system."
Charles Leonard Steel Services specializes in manufacturing steel products and designing staircases and railing systems. Under Obamacare, the company's health care premiums have increased by 14% in 2015 and may increase as much as 20% in 2016.
“We support Scott Brown because our business wants to repeal Obamacare and take control of health care options for our employees.  Scott is an independent thinker who will put New Hampshire first and work with Senator Ayotte to deliver results for our state," said Charles Fenderson, Principal of Charles Leonard Steel Services.
