After a mis-cue yesterday on the identity, we now know that Rep Peter Schmidt (Strafford-4) is the serial parking violator in the picture. And no, the availability of spaces does not seem top be a factor.
Mr. Schmidt is a good liberal sticking to the anti-liberty line who clearly finds his need to be somewhere more important than something as trivial as No Parking zones. In Mr. Schmidt's defense, he appears to be handicapped---he's listed as a university professor. If that is true that makes him special. Isn't he special? If he does have any physical handicaps, which I doubt given that he is parking in the no parking zone by the stairs, he might demonstrate some of that superior intellect and years of leadership as an elected representative, and make other arrangements.
Who am I kidding. A NH liberal planning for a future other than the one they have imagined for you--like the series of fictions known as "revenue estimates" to justify lavish spending--is almost unheard of. And Mr. Schmidt is a good liberal. (He is supposed to be a professor right?)
His liberty rating is a D-, though it will be of interest to conservatives that between 2009 and 2010 he took a hard right turn. His NH House Republican Rating went from 9% to 17%. But he can still get it back in line, and I'm sure he's already had a good talking to.
Seriously, despite the lousy parking situation in Concord, Peter Schmidt needs to get out of his white tower a bit earlier and park like all the other voices of the people, in a parking space.
