Letter To The
As a thirty-year resident of Chichester
and NH native, I want to ask Chichester and Pembroke voters to be
aware that State Representative candidates Brian Seaworth and Darren
Tapp are members of the Free State Project. This organization was
founded in 2001 to encourage 20,000 people to move to NH and run for
office to further their extreme anti-government agenda.
Neither Seaworth nor Tapp are forthcoming
about being Free Staters. You won’t find it mentioned on their
websites or social media pages. They don’t admit that they came to
NH (in 2006 and 2009) as part of a political migration with the aim
of dismantling our laws and government.
Seaworth and Tapp are running as Republicans to represent Chichester
and Pembroke at the State House. They are uncompromising
idealists who are more interested in their own agenda than in what
is best for our towns.
Seaworth’s anti-government beliefs have led to his sponsorship of a
bill to remove the Governor’s authority to declare a state of
emergency. Tapp doesn’t have a voting record yet, but has been
pushing for adoption of Bitcoin as legal tender and once told me he
didn’t see a need for the NHDOT or local fire departments.
Free Staters like Seaworth and Tapp
obstruct problem-solving at the State House because they want to
eliminate the role of government in our society. We need
Representatives in the State House who are willing to work across
the aisle to do what’s best for our towns and our state.
