Raymond Howard is excellent choice to represent our three towns

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

This letter is to support one of the candidates for the Alton, Barnstead and Gilmanton N.H. House seat. His name is Raymond Howard.

Ray is a born and bred native of New Hampshire. He has been a contractor, and self-employed, for over 34 years. Hard work and frugality are nothing new to this guy. He knows exactly what it takes to pay bills, including taxes. He brings that Granite State common sense with him to the Alton Planning Board, where he regularly applies it in defense of the local taxpayer. As a contractor, he has a keen eye for the details in everything.

For more than 17 years, Ray has been active in the Boy Scouts. This great organization offers valuable contributions for molding young men's characters, and Ray has been a part of that.

If you want a candidate that is fiscally responsible, a defender of the U.S. and N.H. Constitutions, and a supporter of local control, may I offer to you the candidacy of Raymond Howard.

I believe he is the best choice to represent us in Concord.

Don Walker
