There have been letters in the paper recently asking people not to vote or support Tim Lord, who is running for the N.H. House seat in District 3 — Hancock, Bennington, Greenfield — because he supports President Trump.

Well, I support Tim Lord because he supports the good things that President Trump has brought us, like an unemployment rate of 3.7 percent with a black unemployment of about 6 percent, a growth rate of 4.1 percent, moving our embassy to Jerusalem, an historic tax cut for about 80 percent of Americans, bringing manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. from overseas, working with Central American nations to crack down on MS-13 gangs, rebuilding our military and destroying ISIS, overhauling the Veterans Administration by giving veterans more choice for medical care, and many more too numerous to mention here.

Tim’s work in Hancock is important to mention here. He did an outstanding job as chairman of the Hancock Historic Committee in fundraising and rehabilitation of the Historic Society building that will preserve it for the next 100 years or more.

And, mostly, I support Tim Lord because his Ph.D. in economics and his work in the international bond market are qualities desperately needed in our state to help our governor build and maintain a balanced budget without a broad-based tax.

With Tim’s willingness to listen and research the issues at hand we will have a strong voice in the House!

I urge all the people of District 3 to vote for Tim Lord to help keep our great state running smoothly.
