Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Where's Carol's Compass? Ms. Shea-Porter goes to Washington, Never Returns.

State Senator Lou D’Allesandro Calls Out Shea-Porter for Hiding from Constituents

MANCHESTER – During an interview this morning with Jack Heath on WGIR, State Senator Lou D’Allesandro (D-Manchester) expressed his frustration with Congresswoman Shea-Porter’s neglect of her constituents in the largest city in the First District, Manchester.

Listen to the WGIR conversation here.

D'Allesandro: "Retail politics is the name of the game...If that disappears, Jack, I think the nature of democracy disappears - it's that one on one contact, face to face, talking to people, we'll be come an advertising nation...It's taken that part of politics and moved it to the side, and I'm very discouraged about that"

Heath: "You do events with Ann Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter, do you wish they were out there more?"

D'Allesandro: "Yes. I wish Carol Shea-Porter were in Manchester more, I haven't seen her in Manchester. Manchester is the heart of the first congressional district. I want to see her more"

Jay Ruais, Campaign Manager for Frank Guinta, released the following statement:

“Congresswoman Shea-Porter has literally and figuratively lost her compass. The Congresswoman has been feeling the heat from the constituents that she’s been hiding from, and now she’s feeling it from prominent members of her own party. The Congresswoman can’t find her way to Manchester and she can’t find it within herself to vote with her district – from her steadfast support for ObamaCare to increasing taxes and spending, she has been a rubber stamp for President Obama rather than the independent voice New Hampshire needs.”

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - No one gets a "Golden Ticket" to Shea-Porter's Alleged Open Forums

As Middle Class Struggles, Shea-Porter is Nowhere to be Found

MANCHESTER – This morning, Frank Guinta was with Jack Heath on WGIR, an event initially slated to be a debate between him and Congresswoman Shea-Porter. The Congresswoman declined to attend.

She has also failed to accept a debate invitation from New England College. Additionally, she has repeatedly refused to hold a public town hall meeting since the beginning of her term in 2013. Recently, the Congresswoman released a list of alleged public town halls that she held, including one that supposedly occurred in Hooksett.

Don Wintertown, a Town Councilor from Hooksett, released the following statement:

“As an elected Town Councilor in Hooksett I understand the importance of outreach and interaction with constituents. I am very disappointed in the representation from Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter that her tour of GE Aviation in Hooksett on June 13, 2014 is considered a town hall meeting. While it is important that the Congresswoman tour local business facilities, meet employees and discuss their issues, it is incorrect to call this a town hall meeting as it was a closed meeting at a private facility behind barbed wire fence and with security guards at all entrances for an event exclusively for screened employees. I have tried to work with the Congresswoman on a personal issue, and would have thought and expected to be notified of a town hall meeting both as a constituent and a Town Councilor. All my constituents deserve access to OPEN town hall meetings as does the entire First Congressional District.”

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“In addition to her refusal to meet with Granite Staters, the most disheartening aspect of this is that she's ignoring the most fundamental responsibility of her office, to help those in need. Those that seek and hold office have the obligation to be responsive, to put politics aside, to care for those they've been elected to serve. Time and time again, she has failed to provide for her district and broken the public's trust. At a time when we face so many challenges, New Hampshire deserves a leader who will seek input, be collaborative, incorporate our ideas, and most importantly, listen. Shea-Porter's record is the antithesis of this."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Granite Staters are Screaming in a Soundproof Booth  

Ignoring the Will of Her Constituents, Shea-Porter
Reiterates Support for ObamaCare

MANCHESTER – At an interview with Josh McElveen of WMUR on Sunday, Congresswoman Shea-Porter proudly defended her vote on ObamaCare despite “all the problems” caused for Granite Staters.

MCELVEEN: “Let’s talk about an anniversary that just passed… and that’s the Affordable Care Act one year implementation. I know you hate it when I ask this question… Knowing what you know now, hindsight being what it always is, all the problems that were had, if you could make the same vote again, would you make it?”

SHEA-PORTER: “Yes, I would.”

Please watch the exchange HERE.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"A clear majority of Granite Staters oppose the Affordable Care Act because it is not working for New Hampshire. Seemingly every day another report comes to light detailing waste, fraud, abuse or government incompetence. From Politifact's Lie of the Year that "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it," to the promise that costs would decrease by $2,500 per family, to the pledge that the economy wouldn't suffer, she is consistently proven wrong. Granite Staters might as well be screaming in a soundproof booth because Congresswoman Shea-Porter still refuses to listen. We deserve a health care plan and a Representative that works for us."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - President Obama Stumps for Shea-Porter  

A Vote for Shea-Porter is a Vote for the Obama Agenda, Just ask the President!

MANCHESTER - At a speech in Chicago on Thursday, President Obama confirmed that "every single one" of his policies are on the ballot in New Hampshire.

"I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them," Obama stressed. “I’m not going to tell you who to vote for, although I suppose it’s kind of implied."

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"President Obama confirmed what  Granite Staters already knew; a vote for Congresswoman Shea-Porter is a vote for every single one of his policies. Despite Shea-Porter’s best efforts to deceive Granite Staters into thinking she agrees with their values, President Obama has made it abundantly clear that a vote for Shea-Porter is a vote of support for his failed agenda. From ObamaCare which has devastated the middle class, to trillions more in debt, and with fewer Americans working than at any time since 1978, this district deserves a representative who will serve their interests, not President Obama's failed agenda."

NHDP - Grandstanding Guinta’s Attack Stunt Falls Flat 

 

Former Congressman Won’t Allow Voters At So-Called Public Meetings
 

Manchester, NH - In Frank Guinta’s latest cynical attempt to hide the fact that he’s a pawn of DC lobbyists and special interests, he announced a series of so-called public kitchen table talks with much fanfare--and then refused to tell voters the time and location of these meetings.

“Frank Guinta claimed that these meetings would show he is accessible. Instead, they simply prove what we’ve known all along, that his policies are so toxic and extreme that he needs to hide behind political stunts," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Bryan Lesswing. “Kelly Ayotte put it best: Frank Guinta is a grandstander, and this latest stunt exposes him yet again as a cynical career politician."
