Hi....I'm John O'Day State Representative  for Cheshire County District 11 , serving the towns of Fitzwilliam and Rindge . Once again I am asking for your support.
    When I first ran for office, I made a commitment to you, the voters that I would actively participate in our New Hampshire government. For me that meant reading and studying the bills and showing up for session and committee meetings, regardless of weather conditions , illness , or inconvenience . I have a 100 % attendance record and intend to continue that trend . Last term I ran on what I said I would do, this term I am running on my record . I can't say that I didn't make a mistake or two, but overall I am happy with my votes. In this session alone over 1000 bills went through committees and voted on by the house. I encourage you to check out my voting record using the following link.  http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/house/members/member.aspx
    It's important that our elected officials be judged on what they have done... not by what they say they will do. It's not in my nature to boast , but I am proud to have received the General John Stark Protector of Freedom Award 2 years in a row. I have the utmost respect for the author of the phrase " Live Free or Die "..even naming our German Shepard "Stark" in his honor. The American Union Conservative Foundation also recognized my voting record as one reflective of "conservative excellence".
     To be honest, I don't enjoy the politics game much, but I feel strongly it is my duty and obligation to uphold the liberties that our Founding Fathers paid for with their treasure and lives.                                                                                                                                  

Having lived in both Rindge (since 2005) and Fitzwilliam (1991-2005) I believe I can best represent the needs of both communities.

I come from a family of do-it-yourselfers.  By trade, I'm a skilled machinist with 42 years experience.   I was a part-time police officer for 4.  I've rebuilt or remodeled houses for resale.....and operated and mechanically maintained heavy machine equipment. I'm a thinker, a fixer, and a doer.

For the last 21 years I've been the office manager of the Peterborough Veterinary Clinic, our family business with my veterinarian wife June Sailor-O'Day.  Those accounting skills came in handy when I was treasurer of Boy Scout Troop 308 of Rindge for over 5 years....and in my current position as treasurer of the Rindge, Jaffrey, Fitzwilliam Republican Committee.

June and I have two sons.....Shane, a college graduate engineer.....and Kyle, a Specialist in the US Army.   The pride we have in them was so worth the hardest job I've ever held...."stay at home Dad" while June was at the clinic.  We also have a new Golden Retriever puppy named Guinness.  Life, especially since adding Guinness, leaves little time for play, but I am a licensed pilot and enjoy motorcycles, antique cars, snowmobiles, skiing, hiking, and firearms.  I am also a Christian and believe firmly in the Judeo-Christian principles our country was founded on.

Please view my pages to find out what I am about and where I stand on the issues.  If you agree with me, then please vote for me. If there is an issue you would like to know where I stand on that you don't see, please ask.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  I appreciate it.
