To The Laconia Sun,
As a young woman and college student, I was incredibly proud when I read the article in The Laconia Daily Sun about state Sen. Andrew Hosmer, who sponsored a domestic violence bill. It is reassuring to know that Sen. Hosmer is looking out for the rights of people who have been backed into a corner, and in my opinion that's a man worth standing behind.
This piece of legislation, Senate Bill 390, allows victims of domestic abuse the ability to maintain a steady job and have peace of mind while at work. While I have never been a victim of domestic abuse, I have had some close friends who have, and I know that this legislation will be life-changing for them.
Sen. Hosmer is paving the way for domestic violence legislation in New Hampshire and has proven to me that I can still have faith in my elected officials. I just hope that other officials will follow Sen. Hosmer's leadership because domestic violence is a very real and very frightening reality for many of our fellow Granite Staters. This is a problem that we can all work together on to better New Hampshire.
Thank you Sen. Hosmer for sponsoring this bill and caring about your constituents and all people of New Hampshire.
