Tom Dawson has the ability to help us move forward as community

To The Daily Sun,

My name is Elinor Thorsell. Many of you have passed through my classroom at Memorial Middle School. I have lived in Laconia for more than 40 years and have gotten to know Tom Dawson through his son (a friend of my son) and his Stanley Steamer.

I was pleased to learn that Tom Dawson has decided bring to his extensive knowledge of community service as New Hampshire Fire Marshall to a new challenge as Laconia's representative to the House of Representatives at the Statehouse.

Tom is committed to listen to every piece of legislation, discussions and debates brought before the House of Representatives. He will weigh each idea or proposal with the people of Laconia in mind — all of us, not just one segment.

Tom will respond to issues with a wise and strong voice, keeping in mind our needs here at home in Laconia Most importantly, he will listen to Laconia's citizens regarding these issues.

I sincerely feel Tom Dawson has the ability to help us move forward as a community.

Tom Dawson has my vote.

Elinor Thorsell

How about dropping Hillary in Chicago? Think she'll make it better

To The Daily Sun,

Here are a few facts on the 2016 election:

— Secretary. of State Kerry has stated that refrigerators are as dangerous as ISIS. I do not go near my refrigerator unless I am armed.

— Bill and Hillary have a 10-foot wall around their residence in New York. Who built their wall?

— More than 90 people were shot in Chicago in a week. In 2016, there have been 467 homicides in Chicago, more than New York City and Los Angeles combined. Where is Black Lives Matter? Where is the Justice Department? Where is President Obama?

— Bill Clinton stated that you could drop Hillary in a trouble spot, come back and she will have made it better. How about dropping her into Chicago? How did Hillary make Benghazi better?

— Black DNC resistance marchers demanded that all whites go to the back. Is this racist?

— Bill and Hillary rented an estate in the Hamptons for two weeks at a cost of $100,000. Don't we all?

— Secretary of State Kerry is withholding details from Congress on the ransom paid to Iran. Congress needs to give money to the Clinton Foundation and Hillary will give them access to John Kerry.

Several celebrities are threatening to leave the United States if Trump is elected. This is a huge reason to vote for Trump. Although not a complete list, the following would leave: Barbra Streisand (Yay), Samuel L. Jackson, Miley Cyrus (can join Barbra in a duet), Cher (now it is a trio), Al Sharpton (who is going to miss him other than President Obama?), Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg ("The View" will be filmed in Canada).
