Look for Season 12, Episode: "About Last Night"...Original Air Date: 11.05.08
Bush signed an executive order on Monday, July 14 2008, lifting a Presidential moratorium signed by his father, George Bush
Senior, and upheld by Bill Clinton. However, drilling can not start unless the Congress repeals its 1982 moratorium on drilling
in environmentally sensitive areas including the continental shelf. Drilling is still forbidden in many wilderness areas as
well. Thus, if we are to tap the offshore reserves, or the wilderness reserves, Congress must first act. However the Congress
has repeatedly blocked proposals by Big Oil for energy exploration - both offshore and in the wilderness reserves.
PRO: The untapped offshore areas of our Continental Shelf likely contain a supply sufficient to satisfy
- all by itself - the energy needs of the US for over ten years. When used to supplement imported oil, the supply will last
much longer. The new supply could be used to "buy time" for America to develop and deploy alternative energy sources.
The oil in the yet untapped Alaskan Wilderness Reserve is more than twenty times the amount of oil imported from Saudi Arabia
in a year. If the US were to move quickly to capitalize its existing reserves - a move even suggested by OPEC - this would
likely be a "quick fix" to $4 a gallon gasoline and $100 a barrel oil.
President Bush asserts that "obstructionists"
in the Congress have been blocking progress on energy exploration and this is one of the reasons Americans are faced
with unaffordable energy costs.
CON: I think we all remember the Exxon Valdiz super-tanker oil
spill and the BP oil spill from the Alaska Pipeline due to inadequate engineering and maintenance resulting from cost-cutting
by BP (and higher profits for their share holders). Although it should now be possible (through Federal regulation and oversight
of new exploration, drilling, pumping and transport), the Democrats believe it is unnecessary to drill either offshore, or
in the wilderness reserves. Senator Harry Reid (Senate majority whip, D-NEV) believes that President Bush is simply "grandstanding"
and that Big Oil should simply explore and exploit the 68 million acres already leased from the Government. (Unfortunately,
this means development of new methods to extract oil from shale - which is prohibitively expensive and will NOT relieve the
$4 a gallon problem. In addition, development of the new technologies needed will not put cheaper gas at the pump for years).
Other House and Senate Democrats echo this sentiment - despite rising anger from the American people about the
high price of gasoline. Popularity of the Democrat controlled Congress hovers around 13% (as it has for about a year?) making
this Congress the single most unpopular Congress in memory. This continuing action by the Democratic Congress may backfire
on them as the price of gas continues to rise.
Congressman Paul Hodes wrote to me today in a letter responding
to my concerns about energy prices: "Instead of drilling in environmentally sensitive
areas, we should focus on drilling on lands the oil companies have already leased, rather than developing new leases in other
fragile ecosystems. There are currently 68 million acres of federal lands that have been leased to oil companies but have
not yet been drilled. By not drilling on these lands, oil companies are limiting our nation's fuel supply and are driving
up fuel prices for New Hampshire families." Congressman Hodes is faithfully following the party line - but as I
mentioned before, drilling on the existing lands will require the exploitation of shale oil, which is VERY expensive and requires
new technologies. No "quick fix" here...
JIMMY CARTER WAS RIGHT. I don't normally
side with "Big Oil". And I don't often find myself agreeing with President Jimmy Carter of the 1970s. However,
last night, NPR's "Marketplace" talked about Carter's 1979 "Crisis of Confidence" speech. Carter
was a VERY intelligent man, no matter what you though of his foreign and domestic policies, and he realized the "system
of system" problem posed by the energy crisis. If we'd followed his energy blueprint, we wouldn't have as
many problems today. Carter laid out these goals:
--Never use more foreign oil than that which we ourselves produce.
--Start massive government investment to develop alternative sources of fuel. --Mandate that utility companies
cut their use of oil by 50%, and switch to alternative fuels. --Give $10 billion to strengthen the nation's public
transportation system. --Drastically raise CAFE standards for US automakers. It's odd to think that Carter might have had the answer almost 30 years ago...

Science, Technology and Energy
David was trained at the MIT Sloan School for a wide variety
of strategic technology planning and leadership positions, including management of large corporate and national laboratories.
A Ph.D. in Management of Technological Innovation
8 years on the Board of Directors of an international industry association
Thirty-five years of technology experience, including ten years as a high-tech entrepreneur
and small business owner
experience as a US diplomat to a UN agency in Geneva, the International Telecommunications Union
This experience gives David both the domestic and international perspective needed
to help NH develop a strategic plan for next-generation initiatives in science, technology and energy. We need to create high
quality JOBS to compete on the world stage. We MUST stop the “flat spin” death-spiral our economy is in. We suffer
from an ever-aging population, an exodus of high-tech jobs, and departure of our trained young citizens at an alarming rate.
We are in danger of losing our New Hampshire Advantage!
Public Education - "Education is the Foundation of Liberty"
David has served on the Nashua School
Board since his election in 2009, as one of nine at-large Board of Education members, and has demonstrated his ability to
lead innovative reform in the Nashua Schools, leveraging his Ph.D. in Management of Innovation from the MIT Sloan School to
help develop a strategic vision for innovative change. He is well known for his bi-partisan approach to problem solving
without sacrificing conservative principles. As Chairman of Curriculum and Evaluation, he works closely with teachers,
administration and other elected officials to help reform public school curriculum in math, science and technology. As a member
of the Education SIG of the Wireless Innovation Forum, he modernized multi-disciplinary curriculums at engineering colleges.
In Concord, he hopes to further reform of New Hampshire’s K-16 public education, including the introduction of an innovative
college internship program modeled after MIT’s highly successful Industrial Cooperative (Co-op) Program. This needed
revitalization of New Hampshire’s college system will help both college students AND industry, bring/retain students
TO NH and RETAIN young, trained NH citizens to STAY IN NH.

My son sent me this in an email :)
All of our children attended Nashua schools.
Top L to R: Allen, Barbara, Susan, Amanda. Bottom: Dave, Tommie.
Dear Friends: My name is David Murotake. I am a fiscal conservative and have lived in Nashua since 1982. I'm the son and grandson of legal immigrants from Japan who settled in Hawaii.
I'm a "Nisei", a second-generation Japanese American born in Hawaii in 1954. Since my first language was
Japanese, I'm also what the school systems call an "ESL" - an "English as a Second Language" speaker.
I was also a "low socio-economic status" (Low SES) child who grew up in Kalihi-kai in Hawaii (Dog the Bounty Hunter's
Parent, Volunteer and Home School
Teacher: My wife Tommie and I moved to Nashua in 1982 after we both served in the US Army. We've
raised four children in Nashua and sent them through the local school system. I ran a registered Nashua home school for one of my children, and both of us were registered volunteers
with Nashua schools. My teaching experience includes the positions of Instructor in psychology at the MIT Sloan School, senior
teaching assistant for Electronics Laboratory at MIT, Sunday School teacher for over 12 years at St. Joseph parish (K-8),
Character Development Instructor in the Civil Air Patrol, and many years of working with youth as a registered Cub Scout,
Boy Scout and Girl Scout leader in Packs and Troops from Nashua Wards 4, 5 and 8.
Pledge: Oppose any and all new taxes
David Murotake signed ATR Taxpayer Protection Pledge
A Scholar: I graduated as Valedictorian of Immaculata
High School Class of 1971. I attended MIT on a full academic scholarship, converting an Academy appointment (my choice of
Westpoint, Annapolis or Air Force Academy) into a 4-year ROTC scholarship to the college of my choice. I graduated with three
degrees (SB, SB, SM) in 1977. After five years in the Army, I returned to
civilian life in 1982 and obtained my Ph.D. in 1990 from the MIT Sloan School on a fully funded doctoral program paid for
by RCA. I have gone back to school, and am working for the M.Ed. degree program, majoring in Curriculum and Instruction at Rivier College .
A Veteran: I come from a proud 3-generation military family. I'm
an Army Veteran and served with the Combat Engineers and Army Security Agency. I'm the son of a retired Army Chief Warrant
Officer with two Vietnam combat tours, and the father of a Navy Corpsman back from his third deployment in the Global War
on Terror supporting our Marines.
Pledge: Limit budget growth to rate of inflation
David Murotake has taken the NH Advantage pledge
A Fiscal Conservative: I believe in Limited Government, support Nashua's Tax Cap, and have signed the New
Hampshire Advantage pledge, the Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers (CNHT) Taxpayer Pledge, and the New Hampshire Taxpayer
Pledge. I do not support broad based taxes, such as income taxes or sales taxes, to support any increase in the size of Government
- including our public schools. I also believe we need to enhance the education our children receive, making Nashua a more
attractive place for people to move to. This in turn, enhances the value of our City's real estate and increasing revenues
into our City and State educational trust funds. However, the taxpayer supports many programs in our schools which are NOT
mandated by State or Federal laws and regulations - programs like competitive sports in the high schools and middle schools,
and activities like year book, school play, debate and others which are supported by the taxpayer. To save these activities
in the face of certain budget cuts, we will need to institute an activity program - called "pay to play" in many
of the cities which have adopted this type of fee in their schools...
A Small Business Owner: I started SCA Technica, Inc (www.scatechnica.com), a Nashua based Small Business in 2002. We've won seven competitive US Government R&D contracts since our start-up, sold
our first patent in 2007, and granted our first two US Patents in July 2008 and February 2009.
Pledge: Fight sales, income, broad-based taxes
David Murotake has taken the CNHT pledge
As the owner of a high-tech startup company and a 27-year resident of Nashua,
I understand well the issues facing education K-12 in this city, and the challenges that face it. I am also experienced in
the fiscal governance and management of non-profit organizations. I studied Fiscal Control of Non-Profit Organizations at
USC's graduate school, and have served as a member of the Board of Directors of an international non-profit industry association
(www.sdrforum.org) for over 6 years. I will do my best to use my professional management and educational experience to help
Nashua's school system, the parents, and taxpayers of Nashua face and overcome our challenges. As a member of the School Board I will serve to improve the quality and safety of our children's educations,
while keeping taxes as low as possible.
A Christian Volunteer! I've been an active public service volunteer and environmental activist since my high school days. I also have
extensive volunteer experience in Nashua. I'm a Catechist and
Eucharistic Minister at St. Joseph the Worker parish in Nashua Ward 5, and have taught Sunday School there for over a dozen
years. I'm a Secular Carmelite (OCDS) in the St. Therese community in Nashua. I'm also a Past Grand Knight of Council 12311, Knights of Columbus at St. Joseph the Worker parish. I've also served for many years as a "cheerleader
dad" (the male version of "soccer mom") with my three daughters...
Small Brown Scapular
David Murotake is in formation for OCDS
My ministry extends to the Chaplain's Service of the Civil Air Patrol - the
civilian auxiliary of the US Air Force - where I serve as a Character Development Instructor (an assistant to Chaplains).
I am a CAP First Responder, a FEMA ICS-300 qualified Ground Branch Director, ground team leader, air search and a rated Senior
Mission Observer for air search and rescue. I'm also a certified Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) peer for individuals
and groups. During the 9-11 Crisis, I was one of the first CAP volunteers activated to assist Federal resources manning the
FEMA-1 Command Post, coordinating disaster relief operations for the New York metropolitan area and New England. I lived at
FEMA-1 for the next 72 hours helping FEMA and other agencies in trying to cope with the Twin Towers disaster.This surprised
me, as I expected to be aircrew in a CAP aircraft flying reconnaissance missions over the Twin Towers...In addition, I am
trained up through ICS-300 in the Incident Command System, and have specialized training in incident command staff in response
to terrorist/WMD situations in addition to normal emergency services.
A Scout Leader, I'm a past Assistant Scoutmaster and Merit Badge Counselor, Boy Scout Troop 410
at Immaculate Conception Church in Nashua Ward 8. I'm a former Pack committee chair (Cub Scout Pack 255 in Ward 4) and former
Girl Scout co-leader (several Troops in Wards 4, 5), I served as a registered volunteer Math tutor at Nashua high school for
two years and taught a registered Nashua Home School for two years. Many years ago - in Wiesbaden Air Base, Germany,
a community with over 5,000 families - I served as a community United Way chairman for two years. I am also very active
in my industry doing "pro-bono" work - having founded and chaired over half a dozen international working groups
and special interest groups in the field of software defined radio (SDR). I am a past vice-chair of the SDR Forum Technical
Committee, and immediate past chair of its Markets Committee. In October 2008 I was re-elected to a sixth term as a member
of its Board of Directors, currently representing Small Company members.
JFK - Inaugural Address - YouTube Video
David Murotake did what JFK wanted, volunteering for worthy causes.
My Favorite Presidents
President John F. Kennedy: He inspired me as a young child. I wept when
he was assasinated. He was a Veteran and a War Hero, a capable Commander in Chief, but a man of Vision and Peace. JFK brought
CHANGE as only a war hero and visionary commander-in-chief can. He re-structured the US Military, moving it from a "strategic
nuclear force" to a mixed force that could be used in counter-insurgencies and today's Global War on Terror. He established
the Green Berets - predecessor of today's Special Operations forces. He believed in volunteerism and started the Peace Corps. He challenged us. JFK was a Life Member of the NRA, and
a staunch defender of the Constitution and our Second Amendment Rights! If any man today claims to be like JFK, he should
only look back on history and ask, "In what way am I like that man?" JFK left very big
shoes to fill. So, too did his brother Robert Kennedy, brutally murdered while he was the Democratic front-runner...
Ronald Reagan - Inaugural Address - YouTube Video
My favorite photo & quotations of President Reagan
President Ronald Reagan: He is another one of my two favorite
Presidents. He was also one of my two Commanders in Chief, and one that every soldier I knew trusted to lead us into just
causes. More than any other President, his policies brought about the end of the Cold War. The policy is neatly summed
up by his motto: "Peace Through Strength". As a moderate and a "fusionist", Ronald Reagan was
villified by both the Right and the Left. But the vast majority of the American people (including me) loved him, and he united
a divided nation. Ronald Reagan even had a strong base of support in the Democratic Party. Like JFK, Reagan was a NRA member and staunch Second Amendment defender.
"The Constitution does not say Government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms.
The Constitution says `the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.`" - President Ronald
"No group does more to promote
gun safety and respect for the laws of this land than the NRA, and I thank you. Still, we've both heard the charges that supporting
gun owners' rights encourages a violent, shoot-em-up society. Don't they understand that most violent crimes are not committed
by decent, lawabiding citizens, they're committed by career criminals? Hard-core criminals use guns, and locking them up and
throwing away the key is the best gun control law we could ever have." - President Ronald Reagan
I studied as hard as I could in school and graduated as the Valedictorian of Immaculata
High School in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1971. I won a scholarship which gave me my choice of admission into Westpoint Military
Academy, Annapolis Naval Academy, or the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Instead, I converted my scholarship into a
full ROTC Scholarship at MIT, where I was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army in 1975. Later, after I completed my
Army active duty assignment, the RCA Corporation awarded me a fully funded Ph.D. Program to the school of my choice. Offered
admissions by the MIT Sloan School of Management and Harvard's JFK School of Government, I chose to return to MIT, using my
GI Bill and other Veterans benefits to help out with raising my family while attending school.
Bachelor of Science, Electrical Engineering. Minor: Political Science. Bachelor
of Science, English Literature & Creative Writing. Minor: Theoretical Math Master of Science: Electrical Engineering
and Computer Science. Doctor of Philosophy: Management of Technological Innovation (MIT Sloan School)
