Letter To The
Chichester and Pembroke have the option of
voting for a quality candidate for state rep, Darren Tapp. I am
certain he will work for what’s best for New Hampshire.
I deliver time sensitive medical supplies,
so you can imagine how critical my car is for my job. Years ago, I
had a boot on my car that was going to prevent me from working the
next day. I reached out to my friends to help with the situation.
When Darren found out about this situation he immediately gave me
the remaining amount I needed to remove the boot from my car. Darren
was not carrying enough cash or a checkbook to make his gift, so he
gave me bitcoin.
I’m aware that many people may not
understand bitcoin. The thing is, Darren’s background in mathematics
gives him the ability to actually understand bitcoin. This is a rare
trait that voters should not discount. Anyone should want a state
rep with specialized knowledge and how it applies to technology.
Darren later went to the statehouse to
argue for a bill that would have allowed the state of New Hampshire
to accept bitcoin. If this bill passed it would have helped people
who were in my situation. Darren has not only been an advocate for
me personally, but also in the statehouse. I would encourage people
to vote for Darren Tapp so he can be an advocate for you, too.
