Re-elect State Representative Marcia Moody
Rockingham District 12 Newmarket & Newfields
BackgroundIn 2004 I was inspired by Howard Dean to run at the last minute as a write-in candidate for the New Hampshire House of Representatives and won. This year I am running for my third two year term. I have introduced social justice legislation each year and want to keep up the fight for health care, a clean environment and renewable energy.
AccomplishmentsThe reason I am running again is that last term I felt we were, for the first time in many years, able to bring to the voters of New Hampshire a really progressive agenda. We were able to pass significant legislation. After six tries, we were finally able to pass a much needed increase to the minimum wage. We were finally able to comply with the Supreme Court requirement to define an adequate education and we have developed a costing formula. We were able to establish a commission to study the possibility of tidal power generation under the Little Bay and General Sullivan Bridges. I serve on this commission. We were able to protect local control over groundwater withdrawal. We banned the incineration of construction and demolition debris. We have established a fair and independent ballot law commission.
GoalsMy goals are to work hard to find a way to provide affordable health insurance for all New Hampshire citizens. To implement alternative energy sources such as biofuels, solar power and wind power. To protect our water resources. Water has become the black gold of the 21st century. To protect the privacy and security of our citizens. To support those who serve our country. I want to provide a quality education for all children and fund it with revenues other than property taxes. I want to help the elderly and the poor to pay their heating bills this winter.
ValuesMy platform: I want to protect and preserve all that makes New Hampshire and its people great. The single most important issue facing New Hampshire at the state level is preserving the integrity of the vote and to insure that everyone’s legal right to vote is protected. My policy choices are honesty in government, being fiscally responsible and socially progressive. Being fiscally responsible means setting priorities for government spending that benefits the very people who are paying for that government with their taxes. Being socially progressive means helping others less fortunate to be able to achieve the American Dream. It means to stop privatizing profits and socializing costs.
