To The Daily Sun,
I returned (Friday) from Veterans Square where many neighbors and others from Laconia turned out to remember those who served in the military and who sacrificed their lives for the betterment of all.
Some of those present approached me to thank me for running for office and to say that they were sorry I lost the election for state House of Representative. My response to them, and to the readers of the paper, is that even though I lost, I will not stop working in another capacity to help where I feel my skills can be of benefit.
There is a lot to do in Laconia and we can all, and must all play our part to keep it a safe, good place to live, and a good place to work and raise families. We owe this to those veterans and heroes from Laconia who gave their lives in military service. It's what they fought for and wanted to live for and so let's all do our part in honoring their memory by investing time and effort to make this the city they believed in.
