Tim Prescott for Hillsborough 43 (Manchester Ward 4, Ward 5, Ward 6 & Ward 7)

November 2, 2012

Tim Prescott, who won a write-in campaign on the Republican ballot, is now one of the three people Cornerstone is supporting for Hillsborough 43, which includes Manchester Wards 4, 5, 6 & 7. Cornerstone is also supporting Rep. Kathy Souza and Roy Shoults within the district.

As a Families First Pledge signer, Prescott has said he will work in office to advance citizens’ rights of conscience and religion, protect innocent human life, defend the natural family and traditional marriage, restore the natural rights of parents to raise, educate and care for their own children, and enact free market economic policies to ensure prosperity in New Hampshire.

Additionally, Prescott said he is running for a state representative seat to keep taxes low by making sure the state never creates an income tax and by making it harder for politicians to raise taxes in general. Clearly, Prescott would also be a supporter of low spending and a balanced budget much like the one just passed by Republicans under Speaker William O’Brien. He said he’d also focus on job creation by passing a Right to Work law that will bring more job-creating companies to New Hampshire and get the state’s economy going again. Finally, he said he would support citizens’ constitutional rights, especially the right to bear arms, by working to prevent government officials from exceeding their constitutional authority.

Prescott, who lives with his wife Lisa in Manchester, owns and operates Steam Kings Carpet & Upholstery LLC. He said he has noticed the economy taking a toll on his business and wants to work on creating the conditions necessary to create longtime prosperity for New Hampshire businesses and families.
