Letter To The Editor

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 Editor


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.
