Experience & judgement make Chandler an ideal candidate

To The Daily Sun,

After four terms as a Grafton County Commissioner I have met many outstanding leaders and concerned citizens in Grafton County who are making a difference. One of these committed citizens is Charlie Chandler. Our voters have an opportunity to elect a new face with Democrat Charlie Chandler of Warren running for the seat in Senate District 2.

This is a huge district running from Wilmot to Holderness and Tilton to Center Harbor — 27 towns. The needs are diverse as are the citizens, the local economy, the schools, health needs, etc. Charlie is a native from Laconia now residing in the small town of Warren where he is on the Selectboard. His past and present experiences include being a member of the state House of Representatives, Tilton Fire District moderator, Cannon Mountain Advisory Commission, on many boards of directors (Pemi Baker Land Trust, Spaulding Youth Center, Franklin Savings Bank, etc.) — the lists continue but this shows his involvement with a variety of groups and the respect held for his opinion.

Charlie Chandler's experience, judgment, and temperament make him the ideal candidate for our citizens of Senate District 2. He is a graduate of UNH and Suffolk Law School. His 45 years of experience in both elective and local and state-appointed positions makes him the most qualified candidate to lead our region and the state to a better educational system, stronger and creative economy, alternative energy sources, and a big commitment to fighting the opioid crisis now devastating our state.

By electing Charlie Chandler and achieving a Democratic majority in the State Senate, we will uphold a positive vision for New Hampshire and create a society where all our people are afforded fundamental justice and equal protection with their voices being heard. I hope my neighbors and friends across this large Senate District 2 will join me in supporting Charlie Chandler at the ballot box this fall. He will make a difference.

My personal goal is to organize veterans in support of Jeanie

To The Daily Sun,

The Senate and House have convened for the summer and it is time for the candidates to start running full-time for the various offices. My favorite public servant, Jeanie Forrester, our present state senator, is holding and attending events from one end of the state to the other. This campaign is for all the people — grassroots from the word go.

There are so many campaigns that tout all their big-shot friends and fellow politicians. That is fine; everyone should be welcomed to help a candidate, but for Jeanie it is most important to get to everyone.

In order to be a good governor you need to know what the people of New Hampshire want her to do to improve the state. Jeanie listens, and will tell you she doesn't have all the answers, but it is up to all of us to make sure she knows what the people's concerns are.

Try to get out and meet her. You can also write, email, or call her with any questions you may have. If there ever was time we need to turn things around in New Hampshire after all the years of Democratic governors leading us, it is now.

I plan to help in any way I can. One of my personal goals is to organize veterans who wouldlike to support Jeanie. You can email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call me at 603-279-4930

Personally I don't mind those who don't support Jeanie to contact me for reasons they don't agree with Jeanie on, or things they would like changed.

One of the greatest things about America, we have the right to agree to disagree.
