Rep. McLeod threatened a constituent with charges of harassment because she didn’t want to be listed as the Representative for Franconia on a local community website or receive emails that were being distributed to members of an opt-in mailing list. She had originally asked to be placed on the opt-in list. Rep. McLeod is interested in hearing from constituents that agree with her but threatens a criminal investigation if one disagrees with her position.

Please remove me from your email list and your website. Your website is an unreliable source of information for the public. It is a well known fact in the community that the information posted there and sent out has most certainly been tampered with to achieve the results you and others are looking for and to harass public officials, including me.
Do not contact me again. If you continue to harass me I will notify NH House Security and the NH State Police and ask them to investigate.
Rep Martha McLeod
