We need reps with the balanced approach favored by Valerie Fraser

To The Daily Sun,

There is one bright, shining light in what has been a contentious, negative and truly horrible campaign season 2016: Valerie "Val" Fraser, who is running for re-election as state representative of Belknap District 1, which includes the towns of Center Harbor and New Hampton.

Val has been a staunch supporter of the voters in her district from her time as a member of the New Hampton Selectboard. She is honest, hard-working, fiscally responsible, and above all is a no-nonsense, practical hands-on leader with a great deal of common sense.

Val always listens carefully to issues before making decisions, and she always follows through with what she promises to do. She has a clear understanding of who her constituents are and goes to bat for them every time. Her recent efforts to assist the voters of New Hampton and Center Harbor in their efforts to preserve the integrity of the Snake River Bridge is a good example of the dedication and perseverance that are hallmarks of Valerie's character.

There is a quote on votesmart.org included in Valerie's biography that reads: "Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer." This statement was made by former President John F. Kennedy, and Val lists it as her favorite quote. I believe it accurately describes Val's leadership style, and in these troubled times I believe we need people with a balanced approach who can build consensus and work for the practical good of all.

Please cast your vote for Valerie Fraser on Nov. 8.

We deeply appreciate the professional care provided to 'Moe' Perry

To The Daily Sun,

On Oct. 19 a very special man in our hearts passed from this world to the next.

Our family would like to express its deepest gratitude to the entire staff of LRGH for his comfort and care; also to the staff of Genesis and Belknap County Home during his short stays.

His was a long, hard journey as he fought to stay with us.

We deeply appreciate the professional care provided to him and the concern, courtesy and understanding shown to his family. The assistance they gave, along with a smile, cheery attitude and gentle approach gave us all a bit of peace.

The names are too many to mention; you know who you are. You have all touched us deeply.

For 69 days we watched over him. Now he watches over us.

Family of Maurice "Moe" Perry
