Letter to the Editor: In Support of John Samperi

It is difficult to imagine a clearer choice for the voters of the 35thrd State Assembly District than John Samperi.


Letter to the Editor:

Mr. Samperi is a genuine, down to earth candidate who understands the struggles of his constituents and will tell you the unvarnished truth.  Isnít it time we were given some of that instead of the usual political platitutes, self-absorbed puffery and phony pandering that passes for the truth? 

And when it comes time to do something for the district, wouldnít it be nice to have as our representative someone who knows how to work hard and diligently for something he believes in?  John Samperi is a small business owner who depends on his own efforts, reputation and hard work to put food on the table for his family. Yet, despite the demands and obligations of his own business and family, he still manages to find the time for his community.  John does not mind ruffling feathers, even within his own party, if it means getting results for those like himself, who struggle to pay their bills and stay within their budgets.  He is no-oneís "yes" man. 

He knows of the financial struggles confronting the towns of the 35th District.  He is a voice of reason and has outlined a simple plan to control State spending and its ever increasing corollary, taxation.  We are very fortunate to have this life-experienced candidate.  He is a husband, a father, a grandfather, a small business owner, a relentless hard worker. That is the kind of experience I like to see representing me in Hartford at this critical juncture.

I urge the voters of the towns of Westbrook, Clinton and Killingworth to vote for John Samperi, on November 6th. 

Anselmo M. Delia, Clinton

Before you continue with this bit, you need to know that this is borderline libel. I do not think racism or sexism are silly, so I would suggest that you either retract it or be responsible enough to stop using an alias to hide behind. Moderators, please take note. Desperate people will always resort to desperate measures, all right.

I'd suggest you ask the people who own the property Mr. Vicino puts his signs on. I know for a fact that at least one Vicino sign was on private property owned by a close friend of John Samperi and who doesn't support Mr. Vicino. Does Mr. Vicino just blindly place his signs wherever John Samperi puts up his own signs without bothering to ask permission from the property owners first? The state election committee would be interested to hear about that practice.

Not concerned about libel, Dave. Just commenting on articles published in established media (Did you see the links to the sources? Sue the NH Register, why don't you). Sorry if paints your buddy in an unfavorable light - but you can't simply declare "silly" (your word) what has been legitimately been brought forth and enacted upon by local governments (unfavorably for Samperi). You're intimidating no one with your panicky response. And all 3 signs were on the legal public setbacks. Interesting you are aware of them being removed. And YOU'RE threatening ME with legal action?

Yes, your going through old newpapers because of some fantasia that it will somehow discredit the common sense solutions Mr. Samperi wants to bring to Hartford IS silly, and you can quote me on that however you'd like. The very fact that you cannot state why any of Mr. Samperi's campaign platform is incorrect pretty much proves that better than I ever could. Plus, I've campaigned with Mr. Samperi throughout the 35th state district, and the one thing I keep hearing over and over is that people are just plain sick and tired of the negative campaign ads, so if you don't believe anything else I say, then at least believe this; I'm certainly not the only one who thinks this is silly. ...and what the heck do you mean "it's interesting I'm aware the signs were missing"? You just told me signs were missing off of Lover's Lane and Burr Hill Road. Were you lying? You really have no credibility.

Samperi can't hide from his past no matter where he runs to. AND, looks like between the two of us, Dave, I'm the one with the credibility. Look at this - pretty sweet!!!! http://thehaddams-killingworth.patch.com/articles/winner-of-the-35th
