Letter To The
An Educated Choice
I am writing in response to Gloria
Andrews’ letter about Dr. Darren Tapp, candidate for NH House of
Representatives in Merrimack, District 20.
I work with, and have befriended, many
people attracted to NH by the Free State Project, just as Dr. Tapp
was. My impression is that “free staters” are diverse, share
“can-do” attitudes, have strong problem-solving skills, and believe
in active citizenry. They are far from homogenous.
Dr. Tapp has unique specialties in
education and mathematics, in which he holds a Ph.D. He promotes
out-of-the-box education and improves learning for local children
and adults. Darren is willing to volunteer his time as a legislator,
and I’m grateful to him and to all who are willing to serve.
In my opinion, Dr. Tapp is not “stealth” about being a “free
stater.” He learned of the high quality of life here, researched it
for himself, and became a local homeowner many years ago. I found
that same quality of life as a student in 1995 and became a “local”
upon graduation. I thank my alma mater for introducing me to
NH and I thank the FSP for doing the same for those it has inspired
to make NH their home. I don’t usually discuss what brought me to NH
and don’t find it odd when others don’t either.
I urge my fellow Chichester/Pembroke
voters to review their candidates with discerning eyes and avoid
being swayed by scare tactics. I am voting for Dr. Tapp on November
8th, and hope you will join me.
Letter To The
A friend of mine and former colleague is running for State
Representative, and I would like to share with you why I think he
should be your chosen representative. Darren Tapp and I met
several years ago while working at Hesser College. Knowing
Darren on a professional level, I can share with you what kind of
leader he will be for you.
Darren has repeatedly demonstrated that he is wholly dedicated to
every endeavor he embarks on. As his supervisor, every
suggestion I gave him, every task I asked him to complete, was done
immediately and with full effort. He was my most reliable and
dependable faculty member – I knew I could count on him regardless
of the situation.
At Hesser, Darren was involved in many college organizations.
As Chair of the Faculty Council, Darren demonstrated strong
leadership, making sure to attend to all the current issues facing
the college faculty. While on the Faculty Development
committee, Darren took the initiative to do what was in the best
interest of the college and its students by writing a letter
fighting to promote a highly dedicated faculty member who was denied
promotion. This resulted in the instructor being promoted.
I personally served on the General Education committee with Darren
and noted immediately that he is an active listener, working
collaboratively to meet the needs of those involved.
As your representative, I know that Darren Tapp will always have
your best interest in mind. He will listen carefully to your
concerns, and he will come up with proposals that take everyone’s
best interest to heart. He will take the initiative to fix a
wrong, and he will work with others in the state government to come
up with the best possible outcome for the people of New Hampshire.
Veronica P. Hupper, Ph.D.
