BARBARA COMTOIS

District 7  -  Alton / Barnstead

Ms. Comtois is currently a state representative and is running for re-election

Ms. Comtois is Endorsed by a Libertarian/Free Stater Group

 

The Liberty Alliance is a group that promotes an extreme Libertarian and Free State Libertarian agenda. They have rated all 424 of New Hampshire's legislators in terms of how well each of them conforms to their brand of Libertarian values.  Ms. Comtois, who pretends to be a Republican on the ballot, receives high marks from this group.  True Republicans may want to take this fringe endorsement under consideration before casting a ballot.  

Refused to Condemn January 6 Violence

A resolution was proposed in the New Hampshire House of Representatives condemning the violence in Washington, DC.  Ms. Comtois voted against a rules change that would've allowed that motion to be voted on by the full house.  The resolution to condemn the violence was never voted on, and therefore failed.

Voted to Block Gunstock Seasonal Loan

 

In 2018 Ms. Comtois voted to block the annual bridge loan (Revenue Anticipation Note) which would have cut off the oxygen to Gunstock's operations.   This was a routine annual process to allow Gunstock's management to invest in the coming season before the revenue flow began.

 

Her vote was finally overridden by other delegates.

Supported Underfunding of Nursing Home, Sheriff's Department and Corrections Department.

Ms. Comtois put our elder citizens in serious jeopardy by underfunding the county nursing home. The primary mission of the county nursing home is to take care of the elder poor where 85% of the residents are supported by federal Medicaid funding. Due to underfunding the budget for critical staffing, the nursing home remains at only 54% occupancy (check figure) with over 100 on the waiting list to get in.

And as s a willing delegation participant, Ms. Comtois undermined the county Sheriff’s and corrections budgets.
