The Issues

Changing Times…

My experience and understanding of our area and our people are critical in representing the multiple needs and concerns of our area. One size does not fit all and one issue is not the only issue for our area. Ruth said, “ I know who I am, where I am coming from, and where I am going to !” This is important when selecting a Representative. You need someone who is well versed in multiple issues and has the experience, the leadership, and the determination to make a difference. Ruth has been involved in several housing issues, including manufactured housing issues, for quite a while. In 2004 and 2005 Ruth attended numerous not for profit meetings on Manufactured Housing concerns including the New Hampshire Community Loan Foundation and HUD meetings. In fact, Ruth helped craft the voluntary rental assistance program that eventually became part of the current law in Chapter 70. She also was instrumental in assisting tenants during the early stages of the Relocation Trust Fund. Ruth believes the homeowners and community owners can find a common ground when suitably invited. In 2015, she co-sponsored legislation to improve and clarify the rent justification bill. In 2016, she sponsored the bill to create a Taskforce for a review of specific concerns in Chapter 70 that ensures community owners and homeowners discuss and recommend changes for the Legislature.

On November 6th, vote for Balance!

Balance of Spending

Issue: You and I must balance our checkbooks and live within our limits. We should expect no less from our elected officials.

Solution: Ruth will work to balance the budget by reducing government spending, not by raising taxes.

Balance of Jobs

Issue: With fewer manufacturing jobs, and a previous focus on retail, real estate, and the building trades, the declining market has greatly affected jobs in our district.

Solution: Ruth will work to diversify our job base through initiatives that will encourage new businesses to locate in our area.

Balance of Responsible Growth and Development

Issue: Our area will continue to grow. Growth helps create jobs and benefits our local economy, but it must be planned well and managed responsibly.

Solution: Ruth will work diligently to maintain local control on land use decisions and balance growth and development with individual property rights.
