To The Daily Sun,
We have a three-way race on Tuesday the 13th's Democratic primary ballot. Though Colin VanOstern has received great endorsements, and I originally donated to his campaign, having met and listened to Steve Marchand, I will vote for Marchand.
At 31, Marchand was voted mayor of Portsmouth. He's wet his feet or submerged is body in complex governing. VanOstern has dipped his toe with Executive Council decision-making and working for a company whose product sells itself (Stonyfield yogurt). As Hillary is the go-to party darling, VanOstern is that. Look critically at what the each gubernatorial candidate offers.
Steve Marchand prioritizes investing in public education. As UNH director of Corporate Relations, he's heard first-hand that needy public schools cause industry to lose prospective, choice employees who want better schools for their children. And we all want better schools for our communities. How else let every talent among us blossom? He'd restore the building-fund that our schools used to access for construction needs. He'd fund full day kindergarten.
He's the only candidate 100 percent opposed to Northern (Tres)Pass.
