Mr. Terry Continues to Advocate for Secession
On August 23, 2022 Terry accepted a $250 donation from The New Hampshire Independence PAC, an advocate of secession from the US.
Yet Mr. Terry's Facebook page says "For the record and in fact, I am not in favor, nor have I ever been in favor of New Hampshire or any other state(s) seceding from the United States."
How can that be?? The NH Independence PAC's website states that " . . .our state’s future can be assured only by reclaiming our rightful status as a sovereign and independent nation. We seek to promote New Hampshire’s peaceful separation from the United States. . . ."

Mr. Terry 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. Mr. Terry, who pretends to be a Republican on the ballot, receives high marks - an A- rating - from this group. True Republicans may want to take this fringe endorsement under consideration before casting a ballot.
Sponsored a bill to take Budgetary control away from the Gunstock Area Commission, and give it to the Belknap County Delegation!
Mr. Terry, along with candidates Johnson 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.
