Guinta For Congress - Help Frank Counter Buckley and Democrats Attacks

Frank said he would go to Washington to fight for opportunities for all Granite Staters, and that's exactly what he has done

He is working hard every day to advance our common goals so we can create better opportunities for all in New Hampshire.  He is:

  • Providing solutions to fix NH’s heroin epidemic
  • Fighting to eliminate regulations that hurt small businesses here in NH
  • Fighting to eliminate regulations that are devastating the fishing industry

  • Working to repeal and replace ObamaCare with a healthcare model that works for New Hampshire

But the democrat party is already up to its partisan games. They’ve named him one of their top tier targets for 2016.

We are mere hours away from an important end of the month deadline and he needs your help.

Will you contribute today and help him continue to stand up for your voice and bring forth real solutions for New Hampshire’s New Hampshire?

Thank you for standing with Team Guinta,

NHDP - After 100 Days, Ineffective Party Boss Kelly Ayotte Still Can’t Get “Damned Liar” Frank Guinta To Resign 

 

Concord, N.H. – One hundred days after Kelly Ayotte called on “damned liar” Frank Guinta to resign, the Guinta problem Ayotte created by propping him up throughout his years of lies isn’t going anywhere.
 
Last month, a Union Leader editorial highlighted the “embarrassment [Guinta’s] continued presence in office creates for the GOP” – and no one feels that embarrassment more than ineffective party boss Kelly Ayotte.
 
“Every day that ‘damned liar’ Frank Guinta remains in office is a glaring reminder of Kelly Ayotte’s incompetent leadership of the New Hampshire Republican Party,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “Kelly Ayotte propped up Frank Guinta throughout his years of lies, and now she’s learning that there’s no undoing the damage she’s done as Guinta refuses for the 100th straight day to heed her call to resign.”

US Rep Guinta Visits Eastern Slopes Regional Airport for Expansion Update 

 

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Today, Congressman Frank Guinta visited the Eastern Slopes Regional Airport (ESRA) in Fryeburg, ME to meet with the Board of Directors to discuss their action plan for infrastructure development and airport expansion. Airports are a vital part of New Hampshire’s transportation infrastructure and promote local economic development and job creation.

 

ESRA is the only aviation access point for North Conway and the Mt. Washington Valley area. During his visit, Congressman Guinta met with a member of the airports Board of Directors, Carl Thibodeau, to discuss its existing infrastructure as well as participate in a detailed walkthrough of the airports future expansion plans.

 

The Eastern Slopes and Mt Washington Valley area is one of the state’s most popular tourist areas, but remains one of the least accessible for air travel with no New Hampshire regional airport inside a 50 mile radius.  Tourism is our state’s second largest industry, creating thousands of jobs and countless economic opportunities for small businesses, it is imperative that these areas be accessible. The expansion and improvement of the Eastern Slopes Airport is vital to strengthening our state’s tourism industry and I look forward to continuing to work with local and federal stakeholders to see this project through to a successful completion.”

 

Congressman Guinta hosted a roundtable with airport authorities in April and as a result ESAA board members were able to apply for a grant, issued by the Northern Border Regional Commission, that would fund the improvements needed to help maintain the airports role as a leader of the region’s transportation infrastructure.

 

Congressman Guinta and Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) sent letters to the Northern Border Regional Commission in support of the funding. Both the Conway and Fryeburg municipalities have unanimously voted in support of investing in the airport and the MaineDOT has agreed to contribute a matching share.

US Rep. Frank Guinta (R-NH CD1)Meets with NH Council on Developmental Disabilities 

 

 

Manchester, NH – This morning, Congressman Guinta (NH-01) met with members of the New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities in his Manchester office to discuss initiatives to eliminate obstacles and promote opportunities for people living with disabilities.

 

The New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities carries out its mission through education, advocacy, and the funding of innovative projects that make significant differences in people’s lives.

 

“Due to the work of the New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities and the countless disability advocates across the nation, we are able to help individuals living with challenges to live more independently and participate more actively in our communities. Earlier this year, I held a bipartisan mental health care summit with stakeholders from across the state to identify areas where the federal government can be of assistance to patients and patient advocates alike.  I am in the process of writing a mental health care bill to address many of the challenges faced by those with a mental illness.  I look forward to continuing to work with great organizations like the New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities to increase accessibility and equality for all.”

 

One of the Council on Developmental Disabilities priorities is the Steve Gleason Act of 2015, which gives Medicare patients greater access to equipment needed to live fuller lives in our communities. Earlier this summer, Congressman Guinta proudly voted in favor of this bill, which has since been signed into law. The Steve Gleason Act ensures that individuals with disabilities will now have access to critical devices, such as speech- generators, or eye tracking technology through Medicare.

 

Congressman Guinta continues to support and encourage efforts to help assist those living with disabilities in the Granite State and throughout the country.

US Rep Frank Guinta (R - NH01) Visits Families in Transition’s Resource Center and Shelter in Manchester 

 

Manchester, NH – On Tuesday August, 18, 2015, Congressman Guinta (NH-01) visited Families in Transition’s newest housing development facility on Lake Avenue in Manchester, NH.  The Family Place Resource Center and Shelter will provide transitional housing to homeless families across New Hampshire and also includes such critical services as a healthcare clinic, preschool, and will help facilitate employment opportunities to assist families in achieving financial independence.

 

"Dating back to my time as Mayor, I have been a forceful advocate for eliminating homelessness.  This is a multi-pronged approach, combating substance abuse, ensuring access to affordable housing, and promoting independence and well-being.  I will continue to do all that I can to combat homelessness across the Granite State, and I applaud Families in Transitions on the development of the Family Place Resource Center and Shelter and their efforts to address homelessness and the many other needs that accompany it.”

 

Congressman Guinta has helped lead efforts to address the current challenges of homelessness throughout the Granite State by supporting H.R.251, the “Home for Heroes Act of 2015.”  H.R. 251 establishes a special assistant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to ensure fair treatment and access to HUD’s housing and homeless assistance programs.

 

If you or your family is at risk of becoming homeless, please call Families in Transition at (603) 641-9441 or e-mail intake@fitnh.org or contact the office of Congressman Frank Guinta at (603) 641-9536. For more information on how you can support Families in Transition please click here.
