SANDWICH — Sandwich Democrats invite the community to meet District 1 Executive Council Candidate Mike Cryans at the Doris Benz Center (Heard Road, Center Sandwich) on Monday, February 3. Beginning at 6 p.m. with a social hour and potluck supper, the gathering will feature a talk by the candidate at 7 p.m., followed by a question and answer period. There will also be some interesting door prizes.
Cryans has served as a Grafton County Commissioner for many years, and is employed as Executive Director of the non-profit Headrest, Inc., in Lebanon. Its mission is to "help those with limited income so that no person is turned away; no person is alone" when coping with a need for community, crisis or addiction support. Headrest, Inc. serves clients in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.
Formerly from Littleton, Cryans now lives in Hanover and states, "For the past 16 years, I served side-by-side with the legendary Ray Burton as a Grafton County Commissioner. On a daily basis, I saw his commitment to the people of this district and his service to every corner of the northern part of our great state. With that same passion, I am running for the Executive Council to continue this service and to work with Governor Hassan to effectively advocate for a state government that brings an innovative approach to creating jobs and fostering economic development."
