Letter To The
To the people of Epsom:
When you enter the Epsom Traffic Circle
you will see new and larger American and POW MIA flags flying in the
Both flags have been replaced and they
look fabulous. It does the Town proud to show the people care about
the military service members that are serving and have served, and
to our brave police officers who gave their lives in the line of
duty for the citizens of the State of New Hampshire and the United
States of America. The new flags were purchased by businesses and
citizens of Epsom who donated money to purchase them and also a
spare set so they may be replaced as needed. I would like to thank
the following businesses and citizens for their donations:
Tim’s Truck Capital, Circle Restaurant, TD
Bank, Soltani Law Office, Circle Auto Repair Shop, Epsom Fire
Department, McBride’s Water Advantage, TKO Accessories, Care

To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom,
and Pittsfield, This week the House met for two long days to vote on
over 500 bills. HB1349, on the new Merrimack County courthouse. Last
year, we passed the capital budget, allocating $16 million to build
it - but specifying that it be on Hazen Drive, next to the Supreme
Court. When the initial plans were reviewed, the sheriff and county
attorney noted that there was no space for them in the new
courthouse, and the city of Concord really wanted it downtown. So
the city and the county worked together to plan a downtown
courthouse, and HB1349 presented the plan. By reusing the existing
courthouse site and better integrating the design and build than the
state does, the county expects to build it for a little less than
the state, but almost a year sooner. Dan and Rep. Dianne Schuett, of
Pembroke, spoke in favor of the plan. The recommendation to kill the
bill failed, 126-212, and it passed on a voice vote. If the Senate
and governor approve, we should have a new courthouse before the end
of next year.
We passed HB1313, requiring voters to be
residents of New Hampshire; HB1428, using some money that had been
squirreled away to fund several wastewater projects; and HB1605,
banning latex gloves in food service, 180-162.
My HB1282, updating the state building
code, was killed, 307-49, as was Dan’s HB1122, limiting state
employees to no more than 15% supervisors, 200-150, both as the
We debated several bills to limit
abortions at great length; the best of them, HB1625, banning
abortions after viability, was recommended to pass. That motion
failed, 148-151, and the bill was killed, 165-135. The others were
killed by wider margins.
