To The Daily Sun,
We have two distinctly different candidates, coincidentally both from Warren, running for the State Senate seat for District 2.
First, Charlie Chandler, a Democrat and retired Laconia attorney widely recognized for leadership, integrity and good judgment, with a 45-year record of collaborating to accomplish shared objectives.
And second, Bob Giuda, a Republican and retired airline pilot, who is known to take extreme positions that raise questions about his judgment and temperament.
Republican Speaker Harold Burns recognized Mr. Chandler in a 1996 Declaration, stating the House is "profoundly grateful ... and expresses its sincerest appreciation" to Mr. Chandler for serving "with distinction and great dedication, consistently speaking with the energetic voice of leadership" and for "outstanding performance as a servant of the people." More recently, Mr. Chandler was selected by the Secretary of State to serve as presiding officer for the investigation into Financial Resources Mortgage Inc., which bilked New Hampshire fraud victims of millions of dollars.
Mr. Giuda traveled to Nevada to join armed supporters at Cliven Bundy's ranch to face down federal officials over grazing rights on public park lands. Mr. Giuda claimed the government had asserted "dictatorial powers" and their actions are "linked to international efforts by international organizations to destroy our sovereignty by attacking our property rights and our 2nd Amendment."
Charlie Chandler believes in investing in the K-12 public schools, our community colleges and the state's University System. While Bob Giuda believes in diverting taxpayer dollars to fund charter, private and religious schools.
Please join me in voting for Charlie Chandler for State Senate in District 2.
