Mr. Cryans was elected 8 times & Ray Burton supported him once

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

After reading Mike Cryans' supporters over and over say that Ray Burton supported Mr. Cryans for Grafton County commissioner in 2012, it should be noted that Mr. Cryans was elected to eight terms.  But Ray only supported him one time. Why?

For you that are not aware, in 1996 Mr. Cryans ran against Ray Burton for the 1st District Executive Council portion. Ray out-polled Mr. Cryans 62,927 to 30,361 — over 2-to-1. In order to win this time around he is going to have to change the mind of many voters that didn't support him last time around.

With local experience, selectman and state experience, state representative and state senate, I feel Joe Kenney has the right experience to represent us as our next executive counselor from District 1.

The most important thing is to get out and vote, no matter which candidate you support. Our right to vote is one of the greatest privileges we have as Americans.

Good luck to both gentlemen.

See you at the polls.

L. Michael Hatch
