THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this Election Day a big success in the town of Amherst.
Republicans are now back in control of the NH House with a strong 80 seat majority.
We have an additional State Senate seat for a 14-10 Republican majority there and thanks to Dave
Wheeler Republicans have a majority on the Executive Council once again.
Amherst residents will now be represented by an all-Republican delegation to Concord.
Congratulations to Steve Stepanek returning to the House along with incumbents Pete Hansen, Bob Rowe, and Laurie Sanborn.
Congratulations to Gary Daniels - our new State Senator.
And we now have an all Republican County delegation once again with Dennis Hogan reclaiming the position of County Attorney.
Congratulations to Carol Holden, not only for being re-elected County Commissioner but also for being the top vote getter on the ballot!
That's a great looking ballot. The way it should be.
Thanks again to all the volunteers who helped our GOTV effort, poll checked, and held signs on Election Day.
The Democrats who were still elected at the federal level will be in the minority, and powerless to do any damage.
Maggie Hassan returns to office but facing a Republican legislature and Council. Let's see how that "bipartisanship" works out for her.
It's STILL a great time to be a Republican in New Hampshire!
At the monthly meeting of the Amherst Republican Town Committee, held March 1st, the following resolution was passed unanimously.
The New Hampshire Republican Party, State Senate, and State House leadership have been informed, as the resolution requires.
RESOLUTION OPPOSING MEDICAID EXPANSION
The following Resolution was adopted by vote of the Amherst Republican Committee members at a regular meeting of this body, on Saturday, March 1, 2014:
Whereas the Amherst Republican Committee finds that the Republican Party Platform clearly opposes the federal Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid in any form;
Whereas certain efforts of the General Court, which would accept Expanded Medicaid funding, unavoidably conflict with our Republican Party Platform;v
Whereas the Amherst Republican Committee finds that accepting some Expanded Medicaid funding now will inevitably result in the adoption of full, Expanded Medicaid in the near future.
Resolved, that the Amherst Republican Committee:
1. Declares its support of the Republican Party Platform, which opposes the federal Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid in any form including efforts of the General Court to accept any Expanded Medicaid funds.
2. Instructs the Committee officers to inform the New Hampshire Republican Party, the New Hampshire State Senate, and the New Hampshire State House of this resolution, and urges all Amherst Republican Committee members to make this decision known to all of our elected officials.
