To The Daily Sun,
Area Democrats are happy to announce that they have an outstanding slate of candidates for the coming State Primary on September 13. You'll have a chance to meet the candidates as they describe their goals to move N.H. forward. I'd like to focus on two such candidates, both N.H. natives, whose voting districts include areas covered by this publication.
Charlie Chandler of Warren is running for State Senate — for the seat now held by Jeannie Forrester . Senate District 2 covers 15 towns from Haverhill to Sanbornton. He has over 45 years of experience in state and local government. He currently serves as chairman of the board at Franklin Savings Bank and as a selectman in Warren. Charlie brings a spring in his step. His experience in various state positions (see his bio at www.charliechandler.com) means that on his first day as our senator he'll be ready to tackle the tough issues face N.H.
Mike Cryans (www.mikecryans.org) is running for the N.H. Executive Council District 1 in the image of Ray Burton, who served the district for so long. This is a very large district serving one fifth of the population of the state from Pittsburg to Tilton. Unlike the present District 1 councilor, Mike wants to be seen and heard throughout the area. He wants to know your concerns and to be there for you when crucial issues come before the Governor and Council. This is the office that votes on all major contracts for projects in state departments and agencies. The Executive Council also accepts federal grants to fund important programs like the N.H. Health Protection that has made health care available to so many in the North Country. Mike is presently Grafton County District 1 commissioner. His 18 years in this office, working alongside Ray, have given him an insight into the needs and concerns of those in the North Country.
Both these men have deep roots here and are looking forward to serving the people in their districts and all residents of N.H. They will be there for us when we need them to make the choices to make our state a better place in which to live and prosper!
