Few Reasons To Leave The Lakes Region

Let’s face it, we have all we need here in the lakes region. On Saturday, Oct 14th a few of us will take a short trip down to Manchester to support a very worthy cause.

Tammy Simmons is running for the board of aldermen in Manchester. I’m not a big fan of politics; for those that step up it’s a grind. If you are fortunate enough to have avoided the action on the inside, you have missed the reason you should support Tammy. You have missed seeing Tammy deliver the message of liberty to rooms full of statist; clearly, boldly, and passionately saying that which you scream at your news feed. You may be heard by your family and friends; Tammy pushes the message to those who would rather not hear the truth.

Please consider joining us for a few hours, I promise your investment of your valuable time will be well spent. Tammy is willing to do the hard work that comes after the election. The return on your investment is the delivery of the liberty message inside city hall. If you can’t make it Saturday, please share and look for other opportunities to help.

If you can make it, register at Ward 10 Door Knocking, or shoot an e-mail to electtammysimmons@gmail.com

July 5, 2016 Jurors Informed

A fresh new pool of jurors arrived at the Belknap Superior Court on Tuesday July 5th. About 70 received information that the court will not provide but is essential to serving as a juror.

Jurors with time to read some good information.
Jurors with time to read some good information.

A couple of interesting incidents occurred. One gentleman popped open the pamphlet to get an idea of what was inside, he knew what he was looking for and said, ‘oh yeah, I’ll be out soon; they won’t let me on a jury!’ I hope he gets to be foreman. Another older man was leaving as jurors were still arriving, so I asked him why he was leaving. He was dismissed from jury duty because he was over 70 years old. Hmmm, I know judges have a mandatory retirement at 70, I never knew there was a limit for a juror. Maybe we need this for the legislature also?

It was a nice day, only 2 people were not interested in taking a flyer. Well, 3 if I count attorney Sisti, but his hands were full. I should have gotten a picture of his ‘briefcases’, each one was the size of a file box.

We will be back out on July 18th at 9:00 to see if we missed anyone. I suppose a few may have called in their regrets for missing the first day.
