What’s Happening at the State House


To voters of Pembroke, Chichester and Epsom, here’s an update on the public voting records of the state legislators who represent us in Concord.  In Chichester & Pembroke we are represented by Dianne Schuett (D), Dave Doherty (D) and Brian Seaworth (R ) and in Epsom – Rep. Klose (R), Brewster (R ) and McGuire (R ) are the Representatives


What’s encouraging to me is that these votes are not strictly on party lines, especially viewing the total vote count which is representative of a Republican majority.  However, after a careful review, we a clear & definite pattern for some individuals emerges.


The following votes are from May 4th.  SB131, to make an appropriation to establish a cross border drug interdiction program, was supported by Reps. Schuett, Doherty and Klose and opposed by Reps. Seaworth, McGuire, and Brewster It passed  252-108.


SB247, made an appropriation for the prevention of lead poisoning from paint and water.  Ultimately the bill passed 233-109.  Supporting were Reps. Schuett, Doherty, and Klose, and opposed, Reps. Seaworth, McGuire, and Brewster. 


SB9, limits the admissibility of the victim’s past in rape cases.  Reps. Schuett, Doherty, Klose, and McGuire voted in favor.  It passed 328-30.  Voting nay: Rep. Seaworth and Brewster. 


SB 191, on providing additional funding for kindergarten, passed  247-116.  In favor: Reps. Schuett, Doherty, Brewster, and Klose.  Opposed were Reps. Seaworth and McGuire.


Another vote was on investigating Rep. Fisher of Laconia for his misogynistic statements.  The vote was 307 – 56.  Voting nay: Reps. Seaworth and McGuire.


We vote again for our State Reps in the fall of 2018.  Please review the positions of each rep on these mainstream bills and decide if they represent your views and those of our town.


After careful review, both of us feel that Rep. Seaworth does not represent our best interests here in Chichester.


Respectfully yours
Sally Kelly & Gloria Andrews
