New Campaign Materials

My campaign literature and signs are now ready to go! Anyone who would like a 14 x 22" lawn sign, please let me know: · (603) 880-3080

Pictures and more, below the jump...

On Wednesday I'll be picking up the signs from Keystone Press in Manchester. I ordered 50 so I know there'll be plenty of these to go around:

This version of my literature will be distributed right before the election in our major lit drops on October 21st and 28th:

Vote for me in online poll!

An incredible opportunity has presented itself for me to get adequate financing for my campaign and I need all of you to help by voting for me in this online contest:
  • Fill in your Name, E-mail, and Zip code
  • Do a quick search of the page for ‘Edwards’ or find me under Hillsborough-26
  • Check off Andrew J. Edwards and cast that ballot!

The Forward Together PAC is letting people vote on their website for the NH State Rep. candidate that they feel will most change the political map this year. The top 15 finishers will receive $500 towards their campaigns, and the top 5 will receive $1000.

I don’t like asking most people for money, so this is a great way for me to reach my fundraising goal. As a college student, I face a challenge in covering the costs for the basic materials needed to campaign (signs, literature, etc.). The important thing to remember here is that this is not necessarily a vote for me to win, it’s simply a vote to put everyone on an even playing field.

Please tell your friends and family to vote too! The poll ends Oct. 8th, next Sunday.

Nashua Telegraph candidate questionnaire

I didn't expect the newspaper's candidate survey to lob us any softballs, but I had no idea the questions would be so loaded.

I wish I had known to disregard their threat to cut us off after 25 words, then I might've been able to give some of the more serious questions the full answers they deserve.

1. The likely loss of federal Medicaid money would mean the loss of up to $140 million for the next two-year state budget. Would you rather meet that anticipated shortfall by reducing the role of state government, adopting a state sales or income tax, raising existing taxes or something in between?

We need to make health care available to everyone and state income or sales taxes would increase burdens on people who already can’t afford it.

2. The budget debate is certain to spawn legislation to legalize slot-machine gambling at the state's racetracks or resort hotels. Would you support that expansion? Why or why not?

I’ll give any proposed solution full consideration when dealing with such important issues as education, quality of life, and the future prosperity of our state.

3. Republican candidate for governor Jim Coburn supports constitutional amendments to both enshrine opposition to an income tax and to dramatically reduce the role of the Supreme Court and give to the Legislature the authority to determine the proper level of state aid to public schools. Do you support each proposal? Why or why not?

Radically altering our system of checks and balances won’t fund education; state income tax was and will continue to be avoided without amending our constitution.

4. There likely will be legislation to make civil unions legal in New Hampshire as they are in Vermont and to amend the state constitution to ban gay marriages. Would you support either proposition? Why or why not?

I will not support discrimination of any sort, including gender or sexual orientation, and will not play politics with our state’s Constitution.
