We voters have chance to bring Forester's dedication to the entire state

To The Daily Sun,

New Hampshire needs an experienced, intelligent, responsible, compassionate governor who listens to the citizenry with an open mind.

For six years now, Jeanie Forrester has been serving her district extraordinarily well as a state senator. She views public service as our nation's founders intended: As a duty and a sacrifice, rather than as a path to power and wealth.

If Jeanie is unfamiliar with an issue, she researches it thoroughly. If she disagrees with you, she is forthright about it. When a matter is worthwhile, she works unflaggingly. And despite the years of largely thankless effort, she somehow manages to remain both positive and humble.

Now that she's running for governor, we voters have an opportunity to bring her dedication and work ethic to all the people of New Hampshire.

I've utmost trust in the decision making of the library trustees

To The Daily Sun,

Anyone keeping abreast with the Meredith Library Board of Trustees quest to expand and improve public library facilities for our town would know hat every board member appreciates the Benjamin Smith Library building. They are also aware of the building's historical significance and unique architectural design. Nor would the trustees disagree on the building's charm and beauty. What prompted the planning of a possible new library is the inner confines of the Smith building.

In recent letters to The Daily Sun, Trustee Pamela Coburn and staff member Matthew Gundy wrote openly and precisely of the library's insufficiencies on space and parking. Letters which, I believe, were widely read and welcomed by a vast majority of residents. Anyhow, count me in as one who supports a new library building. Count me in too as one who like to see the new library open its doors as close to downtown as possible. But, more importantly, count me in as one who has the utmost trust in the decision making of the library trustees. It's a seven-member (uncompensated) board constantly giving local residents the most precious gift anyone can give another person: their time! The untold personal sacrifices these board members made in studying every intricacy of such a Herculean undertaking should be applauded. Of course, the board is aware of the enormous task that lies before them. There will be naysayers and setbacks but a smooth seas never made a skilled sailor, which I'm sure most board members have already learned.

It takes a long run to get to the finish line, but when the gallop is complete, hopefully the board will recall the day Thomas Edison was grilled by a young reporter about his 97 failures before getting his bulb to shine light. Edison's reply: "I have not failed once in my quest to bring light to America. All I've done is find success in discovering 97 ways that wouldn't work."
