A Clarification Re: F & F's Election 2012 Campaign
Recently there has been some confusion over the Fathers and Families' Election 2012 Campaign, and we"d like to clear it up. Because of our recent conversations with Republican presidential contenders Gingrich, Huntsman, Pawlenty and Johnson, some people have incorrectly concluded that we are somehow leaning to the right. This is false–we"ve been asking Republican candidates about these issues because the candidates campaigning in New Hampshire are Republicans. There are lots of Republican events going on, and almost no Democratic events. This is because the Republican primary will be hotly contested, whereas the Democrats have an incumbent running. When President Obama comes to New Hampshire to campaign, we will try to ask him the same questions. To reiterate what we"ve consistently posted on our website, Fathers and Families is resolutely non-partisan and has and continues to work successfully with legislators on both sides of the aisle on legislation to promote family court reform. Our primary goal is to protect the loving bonds children share with both parents after divorce or separation, and we"re happy to work with any legislators or political figures who share this goal. If you have thoughts about our Campaign or this statement and would like to communicate with us directly, please email us at [email protected] If you would like to volunteer to be a part of our Fathers and Families' Election 2012 Campaign, please fill out our volunteer form here. Our New Hampshire efforts cost money---please help defray our costs by giving at www.FathersandFamilies.org/give. Together with you in the love of our children, Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S.
