To The Daily Sun,
I just wanted to take a few moments of your time to tell you why I am voting for Steve Darrow, Republican, for Grafton County District 17 State Representative to the New Hampshire Legislature. I hope that others will feel the same way and pledge their support for my candidate.
Born and raised in Detroit, Darrow attended Canaan College and Franconia College and graduated with a B.A. in literature. He fell in love with New Hampshire and never left. He was hired by United Parcel Service in 1977 and worked in management for 28 years until his retirement. He currently holds the position of Selectboard chair of the Town of Grafton, where he has been selectman for 12 years. He has always been involved with his community.
For eight years he was on the Board of Directors to the Mascoma Valley Health Initiative. He served on the Mascoma Valley Regional School Board. He has been a commissioner to the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission. He labored on the trails of Cardigan Mountain as a volunteer with the Cardigan Mountain Highlanders.
He proudly serves his community, devoted to each member, regardless of political affiliation or socioeconomic background. He is an avid hiker and gardener, growing his own vegetables since his college days. Steve Darrow wants to see New Hampshire maintain its integrity. He believes New Hampshire has something to offer that is worth preserving. Steve Darrow cares about and wants to restore the New Hampshire Advantage, so that our youth don't have to move out of state to find a good job. He works at preserving and strengthening communities as he cares first and foremost about the people within those communities.
I am very interested in the way Grafton House District 17 (Alexandria, Ashland, Bridgewater, Bristol, Enfield and Grafton) will be represented and nurtured during the next decade. Important decisions, such as business development, infrastructure, housing, education, and quality of life will have to be made, decisions that will affect our district in the long run.
I want a "fresh voice" on the dais, one that will work hard for all, regardless of party. Darrow is that voice ... that "100 percent fighter" that I have been waiting for and I will be voting for him this Nov. 4. I hope that you and other folks will join me and support Steve Darrow for Grafton House District 17 Representative.
