DAWN JOHNSON

District 5  -  Laconia Wards 1, 3, 4, 5, 6

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

Sponsored a bill to take Budgetary control away from the Gunstock Area Commission, and give it to the Belknap County Delegation!

Ms. Johnson, along with candidates Terry and Silber, was a sponsor of House Bill 1078 to transfer control of Gunstock's budget to the Belknap delegation.  this was another case of overreach by the delegation in their ongoing effort to micromanage Gunstock's management team and control Gunstock's operation.   The bill was killed in committee - declared "inexpedient to legislate" by a vote of 19 - 0.   You may read the full text of this bill HERE.

Ms. Johnson 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. Johnson, 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.  

Posted an Anti-Semitic Cartoon on her Facebook Page

Ms. Johnson posted on her Facebook page an anti-Semitic cartoon that originated from the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer website.   After a public outrage, the cartoon was removed. Ms. Johnson apologized for posting it, but did not disavow its content. Here are links to two articles on the subject:
