THE PLEDGE

CNHT is famous for being proprietors of the original no-broadbased tax pledge that is taken by many candidates for state office and elected legislators.

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 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.

HOW TO TAKE THE PLEDGE

Simply send an email to jane@cnht.org with your name and office held or sought and you will be added to the list. You can add your campaign website for listing, or, and email address where voters might contact you to ask questions. You may use the graphic pictured on the left. Simply CLICK HERE to download a larger copy which you can sign, rescan, and display on your website or use in mailing materials. There is no need to return the actual sheet to us.

We will provide a PDF file with the latest list of Pledgers 2016. It will be updated for 2018 as soon a filing begins. The filing period for state and federal offices begins on the first Wednesday of June 2018 – just 200 days away. Now would be a good time to start to think about running for the NH House, whether it is for re-election or as a first time candidate.

Let us know of any errors by emailing jane@cnht.org

Please note that the Pledge is NON-partisan and thus candidates running as R, D, and I are invited to make this promise to the taxpayers. WE WILL ATTEMPT TO CONTACT ALL CANDIDATES EITHER BY EMAIL, FACEBOOK, OR VIA GENERAL INVITATION TO THEIR PARTY’S HEADQUARTERS.

If you are a voter, and the candidates or current officials from YOUR district are NOT on the list, please contact them and urge them to take this important Pledge! Districts with missing Pledgers will have the word ASK! in red beside them.

How will you know who has filed? We will post a link to the list of filers for 2018 once it is published. The list will be updated every Friday.
