Friends, family and community members of a local Barnstead family are
sponsoring a benefit buffet dinner to raise funds for a local family
during a very difficult and financially draining time. Eric
Robertson, a long-time resident of Barnstead, has worked in area towns
for many years as a juvenile probation/parole and law enforcement
officer. Eric and his wife, Wendy, have raised their two children
in the town of Barnstead and they have been active in community and
school events with their children.
Eric has been battling cancer for quite some time now and his medical
bills have accumulated significantly. In addition, Wendy has
experienced pay losses when she has missed work to help Eric with his

support raising funds for this worthy cause. The cost is your
generous donation. Menu will feature grilled hot dogs and buns
with all the fixings and side dishes you can imagine, with fresh apple
crisp for dessert.
A silent auction of locally provided farm and
craft items and 50:50 raffle will also be held.

Dear Barnstead Voters,
My name is Barbara Comtois, and I am running for State Representative.
I am very concerned about the future of our State. Recently, I
learned State Agencies have come out with their budgets to be approved
by the new legislature. Combined, these budgets are asking for a
$1,400,000,000 (1.4 billion dollars) increase over the last budget, or
12.5%. Are you getting a 12.5% increase in your wages? Let’s
remember that this is just the state level, the county’s departments are
asking for increases, and when the town and school meetings roll around
in March, we will most likely see an increase in those budgets as well.
Increases in budgets just seem to be inevitable, but we need to be
responsible and think about the taxpayers who are footing these bills.
My children’s future is at risk, as well as their children’s future.
We have many problems that need solving, but throwing money at them is
not a solution. We have to work diligently to make sure that we
and our children can afford to live here, while at the same time
providing the necessary services needed to run our state.
As your State Representative I will work to bring back the NH Advantage,
and explore cost-effective measures that are constitutional to reach
this goal. It would be an honor to serve as your State
Representative. Please vote on November 8th.
