WASHINGTON. D.C. – Today, Congressman Frank Guinta (NH-01) launched a new initiative entitled “We the People.” The purpose of which is to facilitate increased feedback from Granite Staters whose ideas have already led to legislation the Congressman has introduced and ushered through the House of Representatives.
“Ultimately, Washington can only govern effectively when you are invested, you are involved and you are informing your representatives as to what the Congress should be focusing on. For our republic to work, you must be in charge. The “We the People” Initiative serves to make my office available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I encourage everyone to email, call or text me to share your thoughts and ideas so that I may continue working to make Washington work for the great state of New Hampshire.”
With the help and feedback of key organizations, stakeholders and constituents in New Hampshire, Congressman Guinta has been able to get two pieces of legislation passed unanimously by the House of Representatives – including an amendment to prevent the closure of the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and an amendment to increase funding for our nation’s drug courts.
Congressman Guinta is currently working on drafting a bipartisan bill to address our heroin epidemic to be released this summer and encourages those affected by this growing epidemic to participate in the “We the People” Initiative to introduce the best bill to help curb this issue.
Congressman Guinta encourages all constituents of New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District to participate in this new initiative by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling or texting 603.250.6850.
