- Nick’s comments on Libertarian Party of New Hampshire
- Jarvis’ 1.4% means that the Libertarian Party loses automatic ballot access. Needed at least 4%
- Phinney incumbent only 377 votes, (10%) in Strafford 24 house race, single member seat. The Republican who won barely campaigned. Only put yards signs up. Phinney had switched from Republican to Libertarian during the last term
- Dyer incumbent only 1,113 votes, 0.83% Hillsborough district 37, 11 member seat district. Number is deceiving due to how many people are elected from that district. The last place winner from that district got 4.95% 6,722 votes
- If candidates want to run to win they MUST infiltrate one of the two major parties.
- Wolfeboro. America’s oldest summer resort
- Granted to 4 men from Portsmouth by Governor Benning Wentworth in 1759
- Named after General James Wolfe who was victorious in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham in the French and Indian War which lasted 15 minutes and he died from three gunshot wounds. The battle turned the tide in the war. (Also 1759)
- Benning’s nephew John Wentworth became governor as well later on and established an estate in Wolfeboro called Kingswood next to what is now Lake Wentworth.
- During the 19th century the only way to get to Wolfeboro was via the road, i.e. stagecoach or horse.
- In 1872 a railroad was opened that branched off from “Sanborn’s Station” in Wakefield from the Portsmouth, Great Falls and Conway Railroad.
- The railroad caused tourism to explode. What was a small village became one of the biggest tourist destinations.
- The rail line ended right at Lake Winnipesaukee where you could board the steamship Mt. Washington owned by another railroad. The Boston & Maine railroad.
- The Mt Washington still runs and stops in Wolfeboro, Meredith, Weir’s Beach and Alton.
