“Annie Kuster wants higher taxes for us, but she doesn’t pay her own,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Kuster supports ObamaCare, and all of its job-killing tax increases, and she even voted for a tax on Christmas trees. In the meantime, she was delinquent on her property taxes to the tune of $40,000. This November, New Hampshire voters should replace tax hiker Annie Kuster with taxpayer hero Marilinda Garcia. Marilinda Garcia will fight to cut taxes, repeal ObamaCare, and create jobs in New Hampshire.”

 

Script for “Tax Hypocrite” (TV :30)

"/

 

Concord, NH – Kenny Cunningham, communications director for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, released the following statement regarding the release of Marilinda’s web video, “World Leadership.” This is the latest video in her web video series entitled “Try Something New.”

“America must be a leader in world affairs, but out-of-touch Washington politicians such as President Obama and Ann Kuster have demonstrated a lack of the leadership and decisiveness necessary to be effective in curtailing growing security threats like ISIS.”

Cunningham went on to say, “Marilinda recognizes that the people of New Hampshire deserve better and are ready to try something new. She will be the honest and responsible leader that our state deserves, and guarantee that America regains its position of respect across the world. Our support and momentum are both continuing to grow because of her commitment to ensuring we have an effective government.”

Garcia For Congress (CD2) - Marilinda Garcia Statement Regarding State Rep. Vaillancourt's Comments 

 

"/

 

Concord, NH – Marilinda Garcia, Republican nominee for New Hampshire's Second District, released the following statement regarding New Hampshire State Representative Vaillancourt's recent comments about Representative Ann Kuster:

"State Rep. Vaillancourt’s recent comments about Rep. Ann Kuster are sexist and have absolutely no place in political discourse. Both Rep. Kuster and I have experienced this unfortunate reality of being a woman in politics. I hope that as time moves forward and more female candidates run for political office around the country, people will focus on the content of our ideas rather than what we wear and how we look."

NHDP - ICYMI: "Garcia came off the rails at Nashua chamber event" 

Nashua Telegraph Editorial: "Garcia came off the rails at Nashua chamber event"


Key Point: “[Marilinda] Garcia is not ignorant of the [passenger rail] issue, and Williams knew it. As a state representative, Garcia has a track record of opposing commuter rail initiatives. Williams, a knowledgeable business advocate and student of state government, called her on it.

"Most amazing about Garcia’s embarrassing response is that she clearly wasn’t prepared to address the issue. Hello. This is Nashua. Commuter rail is an important issue here. It’s an important issue to the Chamber of Commerce as well. An astute candidate attending a political forum in Nashua, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, would have anticipated the question and been ready to offer an intelligent response. Garcia was not, and for that there is no excuse."

See here or below for the full editorial:

“Be prepared” is the Boy Scout motto. It’s also a song from Disney’s “The Lion King.” And it should be the motto of any candidate for public office sitting down to talk politics with Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Chris Williams, especially with more than 100 business people and the media watching.

Witness 2nd District congressional candidate Marilinda Garcia. The Salem Republican, who is seeking to unseat Democrat incumbent Ann Kuster, was paddling along quite nicely Thursday morning, regurgitating her carefully constructed talking points, when Williams adeptly sliced a few holes in her fragile little dingy.

The issue that rattled Williams’ cage the most was extending commuter rail service to Nashua and places north. Garcia pleaded ignorance of the issue and told Williams, “I’ll get back to you on that.”

Garcia is not ignorant of the issue, and Williams knew it. As a state representative, Garcia has a track record of opposing commuter rail initiatives. Williams, a knowledgeable business advocate and student of state government, called her on it.

Most amazing about Garcia’s embarrassing response is that she clearly wasn’t prepared to address the issue. Hello. This is Nashua. Commuter rail is an important issue here. It’s an important issue to the Chamber of Commerce as well. An astute candidate attending a political forum in Nashua, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, would have anticipated the question and been ready to offer an intelligent response.
