To The Daily Sun,
I am writing this letter in support of Diana Lacey for state representative from District 6 (Belmont). I don't know of anyone who will more truly represent the spirit of Belknap County and the State of New Hampshire. To me, that means putting ordinary working people with all their talents, and all their flaws ahead of political ideology or personal ambition. It means being willing to listen to those whose views differ, and maybe even to take away something from the conversation. It means bringing everyone into the fold, with the idea that more always gets accomplished when we work together to look for common ground and solutions to our problems.
Diana will be a tireless advocate for the people of Belknap County. She was born and raised in New Hampshire. She works for Health and Human Services. She is a mother and a grandmother. To her, the question will always be: "What can I do for the people of New Hampshire?", not "What can New Hampshire do for me?"
A man named Daniel wrote on Diana's Facebook page: "We may sit on different sides of politics. But I know you are honest and you truly care about the people you represent." That is the kind of person we sorely need in our representative.
Diana Lacey will be a refreshing change for District 6. Instead of voting against all the measures aimed at reducing the drug problem, she will support them. Instead of voting to reduce funds for outside agencies that provide services to our elderly needy (senior transportation, Meals on Wheels, and other programs helping seniors remain in their homes rather than entering a nursing home), she will enthusiastically promote the vital services they provide. Instead of slashing funds for economic development, she will provide encouragement for job growth in Belknap County.
As I said, a refreshing change.
