Letter

Emerson stood up for vital needs

To the editor:

I am very grateful to our Rindge Representative, the Honorable Susan Emerson, for her advocacy for children and the environment. In just the last week, Rep. Emerson attended hearings on two important Senate bills, SB98 and SB123, where she spoke on the floor in support and voted in favor of these bills.

SB98 loosens PUC regulations to allow limited Group Net Metering that will be helpful to schools and other campuses/developments that would like to use alternative energy for powering infrastructure. SB123 designates $2 million of RGGI money to be spent on municipal projects. Thank you, Rep. Emerson, for voting for the health and growth of renewable energy in the state of New Hampshire.

I am also deeply indebted to Rep. Emerson for being so instrumental in organizing the Million March Against Child Abuse on April 22. It was a cold and windy day, but Rep. Emerson stuck with us for the whole event and read Judge L. Philip Runyon’s wonderful letter of support to us.

Rep. Emerson’s commitment to representing her constituents while being true to her conscience and beliefs is highly laudable. I wish we had more like her in Concord. She stands up for us.

Patricia A. Martin
