Glenn Cordelli converts knowledge to windom, to all our benefit

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to take a moment and give credit to where it is deserved. New Hampshire prospers from great leaders who make a difference in our community, schools and our great state. Glenn Cordelli is our Carroll County District 4 leader representing Tuftonboro, Sandwich and Moultonborough.

Glenn Cordelli has demonstrated excellence with his promotions while serving on the House Education Committee. New Hampshire needs Glenn Cordelli as state representative to continue advocacy on higher educational standards and freedoms but also as a strong honorable leader of legislation.

Glenn Cordelli supports parents' decisions, privacy and protects students and teachers information. His view in opposition for sales tax work hand in hand for budget reform.

Glenn believes in free enterprise and encourages individual initiative with actions. He is receptive to new ideas and thoughtful change while retaining principles of strength and pride for freedoms and human rights. Glenn's honesty is a tribute to his character reflecting his fearlessness to criticize the topics that need to be held accountable.

Glenn Cordelli demonstrates compassion for New Hampshire's needs by converting knowledge to wisdom and determining a course of action to improve the quality of life for all at home, in New Hampshire. Voting for Glenn ensures a leader who posses integrity and confidence that inspires and motivates us all to get the job done. We are all reminded to keep in mind what is good and right in the best interest for the nation as a whole.

I am asking you to join me in voting for Glenn Cordelli on Nov. 8.

Sen. Hosmer has all the qualities necessary to be a good legislator

To The Daily Sun,

It is always noble to see a senator who is not afraid to interact with the community he serves and who possesses the willingness to create durable solutions to the current societal issues.

As we all know, New Hampshire has been greatly affected by the heroin epidemic and Belknap County is currently battling a severe substance abuse crisis. The individuals who are tasked with managing these crises are often times asked to do a lot more with less, sometimes with very limited or no resources at their disposal. To address these concerns, the New England Police Benevolent Association Local 265 (Probation/Parole Officer's Union) reached out to lawmakers in New Hampshire, mostly state senators from both sides of the aisle, to provide awareness to the current issues.

Sen. Hosmer was very responsive to our calls and welcomed the opportunity to meet with us to discuss these challenging times. He immediately made himself available to participate in a ride-along program to see firsthand what our community's problems and needs are. His willingness to examine the issues and listen closely to the public's frustrations and concerns speaks volumes about him as an individual and community leader, setting him far apart from other politicians who are "talk but no action."

These days it is becoming very common for politicians to distance themselves from their constituents. As soon as they get elected they inevitably forget about the promises they made during the election season. Once in office, they make decisions without any input from the communities they serve. These decisions seem mostly to favor their political party rather than what better serves the people who voted for them.

However, that does not seem to be the case for Sen. Hosmer. He is leading by example and showing the people he is not all talk, but a man of action. He is an exemplary representation for all those who took the oath to serve the general public. He is heavily invested in the community, which is self-evident by his response to requests for open dialogue and opportunities to go into the community and be a part of the solution not become part of the problem.

He is always among his constituents asking and learning about the most pressing issues within society, attending social functions, such as Multicultural Day, Recovery Court graduations, and meeting with community stakeholders. He has also attended local coalition meetings against substance misuse, is working with Navigating Recovery to become another resource in our community, and attends local functions to help sustain families in need of support.

In summary, the quality of the Legislature is measured by his dedication to represent the constituents within it. Sen. Hosmer possesses all of the qualities necessary to properly and effectively legislate and surpasses all the expectations of those within the community he serves. He is a role model within the community and has earned this opportunity to better serve his constituents.

This November please vote for Andrew Hosmer, as he is a true public servant who has continued to work tirelessly toward solving difficult and true societal problems with honesty, open-mindedness, active community participation, community dialogue and bipartisan communication. He is a leader who will maintain his word and follow through with promises of positive change.
