An honorable politician

Nashua and New Hampshire can take pride in the congressional candidacy of state Rep.Steve Negron. When elected, he will be the first congressman from Nashua to serve in the U.S. House since Judd Gregg won 38 years ago.

Steve’s commitment to Nashua and New Hampshire shows in almost everything he does. He is a member of the Board of Advisors of World Academy and a religious education teacher for Immaculate Conception Parish. Steve also is a former scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 410 and has coached softball, baseball and wrestling. He is a family man who truly cares about family values.

In 2005, Steve, a former Minuteman launch officer and program manager for the U.S. Air Force, founded Integron LLC here in Nashua. For more than a decade, he has employed our citizens and fueled our state and the local economy, applying his years of experience and technological expertise to secure the safety and security of New Hampshire and the nation.

As our state representative, he ignored party politics in defense of our wallets and pocketbooks. Nashua state Rep. Kevin Scully notes that “last year in Concord, it took the leadership of key legislators to hold the line on fiscal discipline and taxpayer protection; Rep. Steve Negron stood out as one of those leaders” and called him “a practitioner and defender of the NH advantage.” Steve is my idea of integrity and true leadership.

The incumbent, Ann Kuster, has been defending the power politics of Democrat special interests.

While less than 10 percent of New Hampshire workers are in a union, Ann Kuster has accumulated $3.5 million from labor unions, political committees and PACs, with only one-half of one percent of that total from donors with a New Hampshire address.

Ann Kuster labels herself as “moderate” when running for Congress, but also called herself one of President Obama’s “strongest supporters” and GovTrack.us – an independent, nonpartisan organization – finds Kuster’s “ideology score” to be consistently more liberal than House Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer. An ideology that advances the Washington, D.C., advantage at the expense of our own.

When I first met Steve, I was immediately impressed with his sincerity, and I believe him to be a good and honest character who will tell you the truth and not what he thinks you want to hear. An honorable politician are two words you don’t often see in the same sentence these days, but that is what you will get with Steve.

I support Steve Negron for Congress, because he wants to bring New Hampshire values to Washington.
