Bean, Cushing and Edgar for Hampton

Representatives Phil Bean, Renny Cushing and Mike Edgar have all separated themselves as elected officials who put people first ahead of party. During a time that when our politics are so divided, these three representatives have worked across the aisle to get things done and deserve to be re-elected.

State must keep its pension promises

My job is to make the state keep its promise to Hampton and other cities and towns to share in the retirement costs of of teachers, police and firefighters.  Eight years ago, in the midst of an economic downturn, the legislature broke a decades old promise to Hampton and other municipalities and walked away from its obligation to support a portion of the retirement costs for teachers and public safety employees. The result was the largest property tax increase in state history, draining a million dollars a year from our town alone.  This past session in the legislature I led the fight to restore that state aid, an effort that, unfortunately, fell one vote short. Legislative leaders argue the state government can’t keep its promise because it needs to hoard a $100 million dollars in tax revenue in the state’s Rainy Day Fund.  I say its raining on local property taxpayers, and the state needs keep its promise and send that money back to the Hampton and other towns to help with property tax relief.  If re-elected, I will lead the fight to redeem the broken promise.

Hampton needs Cushing in Concord

Robert “Renny” Cushing deserves our votes on November 6 to re-elect him as state representative from Hampton.

Just this month, Renny won a major victory for Seacoast citizens, working with representatives from both parties to get the public access to documents of the Coakley Landfill Group (CLG). The courts denied CLG’s appeal, of a Right-to-Know suit, so that now we may finally get answers to what is going on with our drinking water, and possible links to high cancer rates in our area.

Cushing is one of NH’s most effective leaders

At a time when our nation seeks leaders with integrity, principles and strength of character, Rockingham District 21 already has one in Renny Cushing.

When our legislators were given the opportunity to stop the forced closure of Concord Steam biofuel plant that would have saved forestry jobs and millions of taxpayer dollars, Renny was one of only 15 who opposed it.

Cushing deserves another term as state rep.

We need Renny Cushing re-elected to the N.H. state House. Representative Cushing has allowed Hampton citizens and N.H. citizens to have a seat at the table. Representative Cushing has been an advocate and voice for the health, safety, and welfare of N.H. families by passing effective legislation and standing up for issues such as mental illness, affordable education, clean energy, the environment, infrastructure, worker’s rights, women’s rights, the LGBTQ population and so many others.

Hampton voters should return Cushing, Edgar to NH House

This election I’ll be voting to re-elect Hampton State Representatives Renny Cushing and Mike Edgar, two of the most effective and hardworking legislators in Concord.

Renny Cushing was born and raised in Hampton, has served in the NH House for many years and is an exceptionally productive and respected member of that body. He’s sponsored countless bills to protect the most vulnerable in our state including the elderly, victims of domestic and sexual abuse and those dealing with mental illness. He was named the 2018 Legislative Leader of The Year by the National Alliance on Mental Illness and has also been named to the Union Leader’s List of most effective legislators. Additionally, Renny is one of the leaders of the coalition working to determine the effects of the Coakley Landfill on the local environment and is an outspoken advocate for the protection of the seacoast water supply.
