Havenstein is change NH needs

To the Editor:

There are many unfavorable things we can say about the current NH state of affairs. Two to consider are:

In 2010, our state faced a $800,000+ deficit, which was corrected by the Republican legislature in 2011/12. NH is again projecting a deficit of $100-$400 million for 2013/14, even though a surplus was generated in 2011/12. About $40 Million is due to HHS ObamaCare overspending.

And within two years, NH has slipped from 19th to 30th as a state in which to do business. Plus the economy has only grown 0.9% in 2013, placing NH last in New England.

We believe Walt Havenstein should be the choice of everyone for our next governor. Why? Many reasons; here are a few:

As CEO of both BAE and SAIC, he managed budgets larger than NH’s without deficits, while growing sales at BAE and he managed to save SAIC through this terrible economic recession.

By cutting out unnecessary regulations and business taxes, connecting schools with business, and continuing to promote STEM, he has a plan to increase jobs in NH by 25,000 within two years.

Anyone who has such outstanding accomplishments and has the loyalty of people who’ve worked for and with him, will bring NH out of its slump.

It’s time for a change!
