I'm running as an independent, write-in candidate for the N.H. House

To The Daily Sun,
This election season we may feel bogged down by party politics, and many of us feel we have to pick the lesser of two evils. If you live in Sanbornton, New Hampton, or Tilton, that may not be the case for you. This year, among the party candidates running for state representative is a glimmer of hope.

I'm Griffin Fredette (and) I am running as an independent and will work across party lines to do what's best for New Hampshire, without having to conform to a party. i will make sure that New Hampshire remains a great place to live for the people here, while not having to introduce more taxes or excessive spending. I will tackle the problems we face with the interests of District 4 in mind, and I hope this Nov. 8 you'll consider writing in Griffin Fredette on your ballot.

Victoria Woodhull was actually first woman to be nomiated for president

To The Daily Sun,

Letter writer James Veverka is mistaken. Mrs. Clinton is not the first woman to be nominated for president of the U.S. Victoria Woodhull (1838-1927) a self-made woman was nominated in 1872 with Frederick Douglas as vice president, although he never accepted it. (Wikipedia and The Citizen is where I found an article).

She was brilliant, had no formal education and raised poor in a not-so-happy home. She was definitely a woman ahead of her time.

Mr. Veverka, you wrote to Mr. Earle, I believe this quote. "I support your right to an opinion 100 percent, but I love my facts and data." Mr. V, you make your facts and data fit into your own agenda and dismiss the facts of others.
