CNHT is famous for being proprietors of the original no-broadbased tax pledge which originated with former Governor Meldrim Thomson. The Pledge is taken by many candidates and currently election state officials. (Governor, EC, State Senate, State Representative)

If you are running for State Representative, State Senator, Executive Councilor, or Governor, you can take the Anti-Broadbased Tax Pledge any time. Once taken, there is no need to take it again, as your Pledge never expires, unless you rescind.

The Pledge (current list for 2018 is updated daily with date inside, filename is 7-7-2018) against broad-based taxes includes a general income tax, general sales tax, or, an increase in a current broad-based tax such as rooms and meals, etc.
