To The Daily Sun,
Here are two of the candidates who have my votes on next week's ballot:
Maggie Hassan is my choice for U.S. Senate. She has shown, by her leadership as governor, to have productive relationships with both Republican and Democratic House and Senate leaders. It's difficult when you're the minority party to accomplish your goals, but with hard work she was able to convince the Legislature to pass expanded Medicaid. By Aug. 15, there were 41,505 people enrolled in that program, many of whom had never had medical coverage before.This positive outcome gives me hope she will be able to work cooperatively with both sides of the aisle in Washington. Her opponent is not a leader.
Kelly has been a GOP rubber stamp on issues like reproductive rights and has gone along with the refusal of her party to hold hearings on the much-needed ninth member of the Supreme Court.
Mike Cryans is my choice for N.H. Executive Council. The council of five members, in consultation with the governor, votes on all major executive branch decisions.
The executive sistrict consists of one fifth of the total residents of the state. Mike has had years of experience as Grafton County Commissioner working closely with our dearly departed Ray Burton, and Holderness' own Martha Richards. I see Mike as a leader. He'll be encouraging new business, seeking ways to help with internet connectivity, finding improved methods of transporting goods and services. In other words, he'll be out in front of the issues. His opponent is a shadow who is often seen in the background, not the foreground where Mike will be.
When you're voting on Tuesday, Nov. 8, I hope you'll agree that Maggie and Mike are worthy of your vote.
