Speaking of congressional candidates, in the 1st District, Republican Eddie Edwards was in Washington recently to sign the Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
He did so during a meeting with ATR president Grover Norquist.
According to the group, candidates and officeholders who sign the pledge “make a written commitment to oppose any and all tax increases.” The pledge is made to the people of a state or district, not to ATR or any particular group.
The pledge has been in existence since 1986, when it was signed by then-President Ronald Reagan.
Grover Norquist, Eddie Edwards
Edwards said: "I am proud to sign the Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge stating that I will not support higher taxes on the people of New Hampshire. I encourage my fellow Granite Staters to read the pledge itself and note that it is a pledge to the people of our great state, not to any group. It is my word. When people vote for me, they can be confident that I will keep my word. And I will not vote for higher taxes. Period.”
