Today is the last day of being a state representative after a lost in a recount by three votes. I will continue to act as a state representative up until I run for election in 2016. There is a lot of issues that need to be address for Franklin. In the next few years I will ensure students of the district will have more opportunities to have internships. I will try to help small businesses to expand and create jobs. In 2016 once reelected, I will introduce extended producer responsibility legislation to increase our recycling rate and to create jobs.
Thanks for all those who supported me and hope I have your support in 2016.
On election day, the turnout was good even though I lost by one vote. I filed for a recount the next day. The recount is on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at 3:00 PM at the state archives. I hope a recount will be in my favor. I still have some unfinished business. Thanks for all who voted for me and look forward serving again.
Representative Scott Burns
Because of the Paint Stewardship bills and other stewardship bills, I have received the endorsement of the NH Sierra Club. I will continue to improve on recycling laws. I am working on stewardship bills, recycling of electronics and composting bill.
The teamsters have supported me in the past few weeks. I have been endorsed by the NH National Education Association.
Tonight’s Franklin Candidate’s forum. One of the main issue was how we were going to cut the county budget and state budget. County budget, there are programs that can save money. For nursing home, there should be a community center for senior citizens to have a place to deal with aging in a respectful manner. For the prison, We should have recidivism programs. For the public safety, we should have prevention programs to keep students and others off drugs since drugs is the highest crime right ow. State budget, I would like to see each agency or department audited to see where programs or RSA that dictate programs or process are not needed and work towards programs that are needed and that are better investment with taxpayers money.
