Rep. Susan Delemus for Strafford 11 (Rochester Ward 4)

September 27, 2012

Rep. Susan Delemus, who is a Republican running for the one seat in Republican-leaning Strafford 11 (Rochester Ward 4), voted with Cornerstone 97 percent of the time during her past two years of service in the Legislature.

The Cornerstone Families First Pledge signer said she was proudest helping to pass SB 289, which requires voters to present a photo ID to prove they are who they say they are before they cast a ballot. She worked on the Election Law committee alongside Reps. David Bates and Will Smith to help perfect the bill, she said.

“It was a victory when the House and the Senate overrode the governor’s vetoes and Voter ID became law in New Hampshire,” Delemus said. “Although none of my bills were successful, my voting record is something I’m very proud of, and I believe I served my constituents to the best of my ability. Also, I was supportive of many bills that did pass and helped make New Hampshire a more business and family friendly state.”

Upon re-election, Rep. Delemus said she plans to file legislation dealing with the definitions of “domicile,” “residence,” “resident,” “inhabitant” and “inhabitance” to help improve New Hampshire’s election law, and she would request the same Election Law committee she served on during her freshman term. Besides her election-law efforts, Rep. Delemus said she intends to sponsor or co-sponsor bills to protect parental rights, traditional marriage and Second Amendment rights.
