Diane's Position on the Issues:  

Civil Liberties/Civil Rights - I support basic freedoms and rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, the U.S. Constitution, and the N.H. Constitution such as:  the right to free speech, assembly, and religion; the right to privacy; the right to remain silent in a police interrogation; the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures of your home and property; the right to due process under the law; the right to a speedy and fair court trial; the right to vote; and the right to be free from discrimination based on gender, race or disability. 

Sanctity of Life - I support life from conception to natural death.  I support life for unborn persons in the womb with three exceptions: rape, incest, and protecting the life of the mother.  Health care organizations that perform abortions should not receive state funds, regardless of whether or not taxpayer dollars are specifically utilized for abortion services.  I oppose physician assisted suicide in the case of terminal illness but support palliative care for  end of life decisions.

Free Speech - I support freedom of speech and thought without censorship, punishment or retaliation for the expression thereof.  All viewpoints matter.

Gun Rights - I support the right of citizens to have and to bear arms.  Every law-abiding N.H. citizen has the right to protect and defend their lives, families and property by means of a legally acquired firearm.  I support N.H.'s "stand your ground" law.  I oppose any gun control legislation that further restricts or places additional requirements on law abiding gun owners.  I oppose "red flag" gun laws.

Property Rights - I support property rights.  I support the requirement that when property is taken through eminent domain, the owner has the right to require the party possessing the property to purchase it in its entirety at fair market value.

Rule of Law -  I support the N.H. Constitution, N.H. RSAs, the promotion of public safety and the maintenance of the rule of law by law enforcement.  I oppose defunding any branch or level of law enforcement in the state.

Government -  I support limited, responsible, sustainable, and transparent state government that is governed by the people with truth, character, and integrity with liberty and fairness for all N.H. citizens.

Personal Responsibility -  I support an environment in which unlimited opportunity is created and prosperity and independence are achievable for all Granite Staters willing to invest of themselves, utilizing their abilities and talents.

No New Taxes - I oppose N.H. adding any broad-based sales tax or any income tax on earned income.  I oppose mandatory payroll deductions for any "family medical leave" program, which is an income tax.  I support conservative, fiscal responsibility and reasonable taxation.  High taxes are the result of big budgets and big spending.  Existing taxes need to be lowered.

Business Friendly Climate - I support reasonable business tax rates along with regulation cuts to attract businesses and companies to relocate to N.H. or to expand their operations within the state thereby strengthening the state economy and creating employment opportunities for Granite Staters.

Economic Growth - I support all N.H. companies, small businesses, and entrepreneurs equally across all business sectors providing employment opportunities and tax revenues for N.H..

Educational Choice - I support educational choice.  There is no one size fits all educational selection.  The purpose of schools is to educate the student and public tax dollars should follow the student and not a particular public school system.  I support public schools, private schools, charter schools, and home schoolsIt is the responsibility and choice of the parents or caregivers to choose what type of education best serves their children.  It is not the role of the government to make such a determination. 
 
Healthcare Freedoms - I support healthcare freedoms.  N.H. citizens have the right to chose the type of healthcare that is best for themselves and their families.  I support free access to alternative healthcare providers, alternative therapies, and prophylactics including supplements and natural remedies.  I also support tele-health medicine.  I strongly oppose mandatory vaccinations as well as any type of mandated medical test, procedure, or intervention.

Military and Veterans' Support - I support active duty, reserve, National Guard, retired, and discharged service members as it pertains to civilian employment rights, healthcare and other benefits due to them.

Right-to-Work - I support right-to-work laws.  All N.H. employees should be have the freedom to decide whether or not to join a union and pay dues.

Voter Integrity -  I support strict residency requirements on voter registrations.  Only U.S. citizens permanently domiciled within the state and holding a N.H. driver's license or N.H. state ID card should be permitted to register to vote in N.H. elections.  Persons residing temporarily within the state should not be allowed to vote in any N.H. elections under any circumstances.  I support absentee ballot voting under current law, and I oppose broad mail in voting.

Individual Prosperity - I support legislation that provides unlimited opportunities for Granite Staters to live, work, and pursue happiness in ways that strengthen communities, making N.H. an exceptional state.
