Letter to the Editor:
Thank you to the many Chichester and
Pembroke residents who supported me during the election! I am
humbled and also feel the weight of responsibility, knowing that
many citizens have faith in me to help move New Hampshire
The introduction to the legislature began last week,
with many meetings and a two-day orientation and a caucus this
week. My first impressions include amazement, resolve, and
I am amazed at the huge number of
representatives that I’ve met and their diversity of experience
and intellect. I am also amazed at the infrastructure that
so efficiently deals with the hundreds of legislators.
resolve comes from realizing that there are many agendas, and to
institute forward-thinking long-term solutions, much work must
be done to align a majority. Thankfully, most legislators
I talk to, also feel the need for long-term solutions to correct
short-term thinking, including the huge budget swings of the
last four years.
What is upsetting is coming face-to-face
with what the Monitor now (after the election) trumpets as “a
budget shortfall pegged at between $600 million and $800
million.” Like most, my wife and I work very hard and
ensure that we responsibly live within our means. I am
frustrated that due to the irresponsible spending of the
previous majority, much of 2011 will be spent reacting to the
huge inherited deficit, rather than proactively focusing on
solving long-term problems.
We will be working hard to
resolve this budget mess, and then moving forward toward
long-term solutions. Thanks again for your support, and
Representative J. Brandon Giuda
