Bedford Patch: AFP Becoming A Major NH Political Player
by Kathy Benuck
Americans For Prosperity has become a huge political force on the national scene through its successful educational programs that have empowered ordinary citizens to become effective advocates on major issues because they are armed with solid information and facts, as well as with compelling alternatives to any legislation and regulations that they oppose.
Here in New Hampshire, the Americans for Prosperity state chapter has been in existence only about three years, but is already supported by over 30,000 NH people of all political stripes who have let their opinions be known at the State House, and who have been vocal in their demands for more transparent government and for legislation that encourages business entrepreneurship and a sounder state economy.
AFP State Director Greg Moore was a recent guest on my “Tell It Like It Is” show, and we had a wide-ranging discussion on both national and state issues that have repercussions on all residents of New Hampshire, and that require strong citizen input if reasonable solutions to today’s problems are to be found.
The show titled “A Look at AFB” starts airing twice daily today on BCTV Channel 16 and will run through to Thursday evening the 22nd on the following broadcast schedule:
Friday/Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday – 9:00 AM, 7:00 PM
Saturday/Monday/Wednesday – 1:00 PM, 10:00 PM
If that schedule is inconvenient for you, or if you do not have cable television, you can also watch the show at anytime by going to www.tellitlikeitisnh.com . Simply click on the word Issues on the top toolbar, and then click on Most Recent Shows. The show will remain archived on the website on the Prominent Organizations page.
Before you know it, the Legislature will be back in session. It’s not too soon to become well-versed and able to communicate your viewpoints to your elected representatives. And with many unsettled critical national issues still on the burner, you owe it to yourself to voice your concerns to the members of our Congressional delegation. It takes more than being an armchair critic to get the changes that you want.
