Rep. John Hikel (R) reaches out to Democrats

To the Editor:

Here we are and another election season is upon us.  Today I am reaching out to the Democrats who will be voting on the Sept. 14 primary. 

First of all I am a Republican and a fiscal conservative one at that.  I have served on the Goffstown Budget Committee for 5 years and diligently sought to keep a tight rein on runaway spending and hold our officials accountable and question the process when I think that your hard earned tax money isn't providing you a reasonable return.  

I understand how important it is to have an efficient as well as quality education for the children.  I understand how critically important it is to the entire community to have a police department and fire department that protects each of us 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the funding necessary to carry out these duties.  These two departments are so important that written in the NH Constitution Part 1 Article 12 where it talks about the Reciprocal of Taxation, it was specifically talking about these two departments. 

I understand that the roads and infrastructure needs to be adequately funded to maintain easy access in, out, and around Goffstown.  The Goffstown Public Library, great civilizations in history had great libraries and the staff here provides exceptional programs and literature for all of the residents to use. 

All of these amenities come with a price, and I for one enjoy the quality of life in Goffstown mostly in part of the people of Goffstown who truly care about the community and it's survival.  I have been a small business owner for 25 years, many times sweating through the week that bills and especially payroll will be met.  Fortunately through the years of hard work, staying focused, controlled spending, and quality work output my company has weathered many financial storms. 

As an incumbent NH House of Representative candidate, I would, at each and every vote, consider if this law will be constitutional.  I have voted to support the arts, parental rights, education how the parents see best for their children, fiscal responsibility, lower spending, less taxes, smaller more efficient government, personal freedoms and NO SALES OR INCOME TAX all in an effort to continue to maintain New Hampshire of one of the great places to live, work, and play. 

I am sure there are many residents of Goffstown and Weare whom I may not share all philosophies with but I am also sure that I share many personal values and political views with many residents as well.  If you have a question to ask or suggest that you would like me to bring to Concord, I am always glad to meet with you and I can usually be found at my auto repair shop in Pinardville daily.  I would be glad to share my voting record with anyone and explain why I voted a particular way.  

If you believe that the current levels of state government spending are not sustainable and you want someone to fight for you as your Representative, then consider writing my name in on the Democrat Primary Ballot in one of the blank spaces and be sure to check the box next to my name.  A special thank you to the Democrats and Republicans who have pledged their support and friendship already.
