REMEMBER TO GET OUT & VOTE NOVEMBER 2

From the Issue: 
November 2010
Hello, it’s Tom Carroll again; just a friendly reminder to get out and perform your civic duty by voting this November 2.  Remember, many have, and continue to sacrifice so much in order to ensure our voting rights.  We vote down at the School on, of course, School Street. 
   
I also want to take this opportunity to remind you that I am running for the New Hampshire House of Representatives as an Independent candidate and that I would be honored to serve if I am voted in.  In our Great State of New Hampshire, The House of Representatives is a very attainable goal; it presents a unique opportunity for someone like me, or even you in the future, to run for an office like this.
   
The New Hampshire House has 400 members and they are compensated only $100 plus a mileage reimbursement allowance per session.  It is not about the money, it is a true citizen’s legislature.  I have completely self-funded my campaign with my own hard-earned money.     

SENATOR KELLY’S PROVEN SUPPORT FOR TROY

From the Issue: 
November 2010
Senator Molly Kelly holds Troy special and has proved it time and again.  She actually lived in Troy when her children were little and enjoyed summers at Sand Dam.  She takes pleasure in attending Old Home Days, various fundraisers, senior meals and other gatherings that allow her to get to know the people of Troy and listen to and act upon their concerns.  If Senator Kelly doesn’t have the answer to a specific question she will do her research and put you in touch with the proper legislative division that can assist you. She never fails to follow up to make sure your concerns were addressed.  I’m certain of this because she has helped me on more than one occasion and the end result was always successful.
   

ELECTION STATEMENT

From the Issue: 
November 2010
I am running for the County Commissioner position to represent Troy and the other towns in District 3 in Cheshire County.  We need to have a lot more input into the County budget in order to help keep our tax rate under control. 
   
While our tax rate has been under pressure from the State, which took a big chunk of Rooms and Meals tax revenues away last year, other components of our tax rate, such as the county's portion, keep increasing.  The County portion of the tax rate from before 2007 was $1.99 then it went to $2.17 in 2007, $2.28 in 2008, $2.96 in 2009 and I estimate it will be almost $3.15 in 2010, and it’s going to keep increasing unless we control spending and plan projects, such as the new jail, with a lot more realistic budgets.
   

TOM CARROLL RUNNING FOR NH STATE REPRESENTATIVE

From the Issue: 
October 2010
Hi, my name is Tom Carroll.  I am 48 years old; originally from Keene and now live in Troy.  I am running for NH State Representative as an Independent in Cheshire County’s 6th District, (Harrisville, Marlborough, Troy and Swanzey). 

I am a God-fearing, Patriotic American and proud NH citizen.  I have never been nor ever thought I would become a politician; however like many of you, I have had it with our current so called “leaders”.  My candidacy is based upon classic, traditional principles.  This country was founded upon and became the most powerful, prosperous nation in the history of the world because of our Founder’s insistence on limited government, simple, clear rule of law and personal responsibility.  We have strayed far from these basic American principles and predictably, now find ourselves in an awful mess.  We do not need pie in the sky false hope or radical wholesale change; we simply need to get back to the basics prescribed to us by our Founders.     

SENATOR MOLLY KELLY

From the Issue: 
September 2010
A special thanks to everyone who organized this year’s Old Home Day.  It was a wonderful opportunity to see old friends and to make some new ones.  The food, as always, was outstanding.  I had fun with the dunking booth this year since I actually managed to dunk someone!  More recently, I attended the latest Troy breakfast and enjoyed hearing about everyone’s summer activities.  The Town is looking especially beautiful it seems to me.

Now the seasons are turning and thoughts turn back to school.  I’ve been busy over the summer with meetings of the Advanced Manufacturing Education Advisory Council as we prepare a report on our work.  This is a wonderful intersection of my interests in education and jobs.  Our advanced manufacturing industry needs good workers and these employers have a vested interest in ensuring that New Hampshire’s young people acquire the math, programming and problem solving skills needed for this vital and growing industry.
