When talking to Merry, you become aware of her commitment

To The Daily Sun,

In this climate of candidates running their campaigns by slamming each other and telling, or should I say shouting, what their opponents won't, or didn't do, it is refreshing to meet a candidate who talks about what they plan to do to make Laconia a better place for everyone to live.

Liz Merry is running for state representative in District 3. She has prior experience as a state representative (2010), and she is an active member of the community, working on committees at LRGH and Genesis, among others. Through her volunteer work, she is involved in seeing first-hand what Laconia needs. This is her motivation to become state representative again and be in a position where she can make a positive difference for the people of Laconia.

In talking with Liz you become aware of her honest commitment, drive, genuine concern for the community, and her awareness of the needs of all area residents. She wants to make Laconia the best city in the Lakes Region.

Some of her ideas include improving Laconia's attraction to tourism, attracting more business to the area thereby providing more jobs, having the education needed to train people for those jobs, and providing housing and health care that adapts to the growing and changing needs of the residents in the area.

Liz is well-spoken, conscientious, and forward-thinking. She is a formidable candidate capable of being heard in the Statehouse and accomplishing everything needed to make Laconia the best place in the Lakes Region. So when she comes to your door, ask her about her plan, and tell her your needs.

Forrester said she would work for all N.H. people, and she did

To The Daily Sun,

Of all the candidates running for governor in the Republican Primary, Jeanie Forrester stands out. When Jeanie announced she was running for governor, the first thing she promised to do was work for all the people of New Hampshire.

As a state senator in District 2, that is exactly what she did. The people she served said she was always available to attend all events, small or large. Jeanie worked with Ray Burton and she could have never gotten a better teacher.

The other candidates have big-bucks supporters and hate to leave the southern part of the state where the majority of the voters live. As Jeb Bush found out, despite famous name and more than $1 million in his campaign coffers, he only made it through a few primaries.

Luckily for Jeannie, the winner gets the most votes not the most money.

Jeanie just picked up one of the most sought-after people that are going to support her, and that is Tom Thomson and his wife Shelia, owners of the Thomson Family Tree Farm. Tom is the son of the legendary anti-tax Gov. Mel Thomson. In endorsing Jeanie, Tom said she is a conservative leader who will protect New Hampshire taxpayers and stand up to the liberal Republican establishment.

Jeanie was the leader in fighting Northern Pass unlike the other candidates.

After listening and reading about some of these other candidates it is hard to tell if they are real Republicans. How could any good Republican support Planned Parenthood?

I hope you have the time and good luck to meet Jeanie, you will be glad you did.
