Cheshire County 9       Special Election Primary    Sept 7 General    Oct 26

For too long the majority in Concord has had the power to take away our rights. It's time to take back control and stand up for the citizens of Cheshire County and New Hampshire.

My Story

I grew up in Atkinson, NH and graduated from Timberlane Regional High School in 1973. I've been a blue collar worker my entire working career. I now live with my husband in Dublin. I'm retired and I'm really tired of what is going on in Concord. I've always been a quiet Republican. Things have changed and I have too. It's time for some common sense in Concord. My opponents in District 9 have voted for an income tax, (HB 712) a sales tax, a $400 million increase in the state budget, (HB1) which would include a 13% spending increase, and for 20 other new or increased fees. (HB 682) it's time for some fiscal responsibility.


"One of the keys to success is energy and Rita Mattson is loaded with it!"                                                                                           Augusta Petrone, friend and fellow DAGOP member                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          "It is a pleasure to endorse Rita Mattson of Dublin, a candidate for the NH House of Representatives. Rita brings a robust conservative view, and she will not be one to vote because she is told to, instead, Rita is one who will take her time to thoroughly study and understand any House Bill that comes before her prior to casting a vote.  I strongly urge the voters of Cheshire County District 9 - Dublin, Roxbury, Harrisville and Jaffrey, to support Rita Mattson."                                                        Marilyn L.

Rita grew up in our state and is a life-long blue collar worker. Her Live Free or Die principles and blue-collar work ethic are exactly what we need in Concord. At the State House, we have fought an income tax, sales tax, and reckless spending proposals. Rita will be a champion in that fight, and she will do a great job representing the people of Cheshire District 9.
