I am proud to endorse Brian Gallagher for state Senate seat, District 2

To The Daily Sun,

As the first leg of our election process rapidly approaches the September primary, voters are clearly taking notice of what the candidates have to offer. In state Senate District 2, we are fortunate to have conservative Sanbornton Rep. Brian Gallagher running to succeed Senator Forrester.

During the past two years, I have had the unique opportunity to serve with Brian both in Concord, and here in Laconia with our Belknap County Delegation. Whether allocating funds through House Ways and Means or helping to navigate county efforts to build the new jail, Rep. Gallagher has exhibited fiscal restraint , foresight, and particular sensitivity to the allocation of county and state taxpayer dollars.

The next legislative biennium poses an exceptional challenge to lawmakers as we must meet necessary services and responsibilities with a finite arsenal of resources. These times demand a senator who will be more than equal to the challenge. I am proud to endorse Brian Gallagher for the New Hampshire Senate as the right man at the right time who will surely serve our state with distinction and excellence.

Rep. Peter J. Spanos
District 3, House Finance

Speaking with both candidates for sheriff on the radio on Saturday

To The Daily Sun,

Tuesday, Sept. 13, is the date for the New Hampshhire Primary election for both parties. That election will determine the Democrat and Republican who will be on the ballot in November for the winners of contested races for state and federal offices.
This Saturday I have former Laconia Police Chief Mike Moyer, and Deputy Bill Wright of the Belknap County Sheriff's Department. These two Republicans are seeking the nomination for sheriff, a two year term, for the November election winner. But first; the primary!
Saturday 8:10-8:8:40 for Moyer, and 9:30-10 for Wright. We are at 1350 am, and live stream
