To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

The House met for the final time this year, on the governor’s vetoes. As expected, only the budget was serious: the rest were essentially party-line votes, with Democrats supporting the governor and Republicans opposed. All failed to get the necessary 2/3 votes.


The budget was much more interesting, because of the “deal” reached with the governor. The Senate passed and sent it to us as SB9. It wasn’t a bad deal, actually: the business tax cuts were accelerated, and further tax cuts would apply if revenues grew as expected; there were no increased taxes or fees; the only extra spending was to fund the negotiated state employee contract – and most of that would come from the savings of 2 1/2 months of the continuing resolution. If this had been the budget that came from the committee of conference, I’d have gladly voted for it.


However, the “deal” had been negotiated in the backroom, and even worse, was presented to us as “take it or leave it.” Questions, suggested changes – even very small ones – were derided as not in the deal and argued, not on the merits but on the authority of those creating and agreeing to the deal. That attitude bothered me a great deal – it compares to the tactics in Congress, where you have to pass the bill to know what’s in it. So I (and Dan and Michael Brewster) voted in favor of every amendment, and against SB9. We were in the minority, SB9 passing 291-73. The final vote on the override of the budget (needed to incorporate the changes in SB9) was 321-25, with the three of us in favor.

Epsom Food Pantry


We are almost into Fall, so our needs will be greater as far as the canned goods go. Soups, hash, beef stew, hot cereal, pancake mix, syrup, and we can always use breads, especially white bread. That seems to be a favorite of folks. And as I always say, anything is gratefully received. 


We are the receipients of a donation from two lovely ladies monthly. Bravo to them.  It is amazing, the donations I get from Town folks and I can only thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The running of the Pantry, as I have  said many times, would not be as efficient as it is without the steady hand of Ken Brown, the buying and shopping of Liz Robinson, and the handling of the finances by Cheryl Arvanitis. And of course the devotion to the Pantry of our Volunteers. 


Until next time,
