Send Brian Seaworth back to the State House.

Less Spending, Lower Taxes, Smaller Government.


"Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed. Their mistaken course stems from false notions of equality, ladies and gentlemen. Equality, rightly understood, as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences. Wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism. Fellow Republicans, it is the cause of Republicanism to resist concentrations of power, private or public, which enforce such conformity and inflict such despotism. It is the cause of Republicanism to ensure that power remains in the hands of the people."

-Senator Barry Goldwater, in his acceptance speech for the Republican presidential nomination

The first time you elected me to represent you in the legislature, we created a budget that came in just 1% under actual revenue. We then created a spending plan that stayed within that projected revenue. In doing so, we eliminated the $800 million deficit created by the previous cycle without raising taxes. The budget cut of 11% created a balanced budget through reduced spending. We did not need to borrow or raise taxes to get the money that ever-growing spending would require.

In my second term, we again passed a balanced and responsible spending plan that met the needs of New Hampshire without raising a single tax or fee. We rejected $129 million worth of tax increases that Governor Hassan claimed was necessary. Without the added taxes and spending, the Governor vetoed our budget. When her veto was easily over ridden by a responsible Republican led legislature committed to providing urgently-needed state services, she began to warm to the merits of our budget. Today, the press and campaign advertisements tell us the Governor "balanced the budget."

As a member of the House Labor Committee, we devoted considerable amounts of time to addressing the issue of high Workers' Compensation costs, which hurts NH businesses. We passed a law that allowed the free market and free negotation to work to bring down the cost of workers' compensation claims. While the results of this law are still not entirely established, the State is now seeing a 9% reduction in rates.

New Hampshire remains the best State in our nation by many, many measures. Recent studies rank New Hampshire as best in quality of life, low crime, health, and the best environment for children. Please join with me to protect the New Hampshire "Advantage" of limited government, low taxes, local control, and personal freedom.


I received an A+ based on my voting record from NH Families for Education. In my next term, I will continue to support legislation that empowers parents, teachers, and towns to improve education while reducing costs.

As a small business owner, I understand the importance of holding the line on taxes and reducing government red-tape, especially in a difficult economy. We have made progress in the last two years, but the legislature needs to stay on the path that it has begun. We cannot go back to hundreds of millions of dollars in deficits spending, over one-hundred increases in fees, taxes and borrowing from our children and grandchildren to cover operating costs. We must stop burdening our businesses with increased regulation and return New Hampshire to a place where businesses will come to succeed. Based on my record, I have been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business and Americans for Prosperity gave me A rating, calling me an "Advocate of Prosperity."

I ask for your vote on November 8th and as your Representative, I will continue to support smaller government, increased local control, and sensible government spending.
