To The Daily Sun,
We have a clear distinction between the two candidates running for state Senate in District 2.
Charlie Chandler, who has my vote, supports same sex marriage He understands that people should have the right to marry the person they love. The LGBT community in our area is surprisingly robust, full of talented, intelligent, and productive people who just want to live their lives in peace with the ones they love. Chandler knows this — knows us — and supports our rights to equality and privacy.
Bob Giuda, on the other hand, after a 2010 appearance at Rivier College in Nashua, characterized his opposition to same-sex marriage by saying, "What's next? Men and sheep? Women and dogs?" He stated that same-sex marriage is the "downfall of the nation," equating the current condition of the U.S. to the collapse of previous civilizations, such as Sparta in Greece.
I hope you'll make an effort to meet Charlie Chandler and listen to his views. He's a retired lawyer from Warren and was a selectman in Northfield. He served on the Ballot Law Commission and presided over the investigation of the FRM securities matter. He currently serves as chairman of the board at Franklin Savings Bank. He is also a selectman in Warren, as well as a moderator of the Warren School District, and a sitting member of the Board of Directors for Pemi-Baker Land Trust. And he is Governor Hassan's appointee to the Cannon Mountain Advisory Commission.
Chandler is a stable and intelligent character and has the temperament necessary to serve in the state Senate. He has my vote.
