I have witnessed Forrester's work ethic & her ability to accomplish

To The Daily Sun,

I have known and worked with Jeanie Forrester for more than 13 years. I first met Jeanie in 2013, while we were both members of the White Mountain Toastmasters group, where we both grew from the experience of honing our public speaking skills. In 2004, we were both founding members and served for several years on the Waukewan Watershed Committee, which was formed to protect the drinking water for the Town of Meredith. The committee formulated the first watershed management plan in the state of New Hampshire and was recognized and honored by the Department of Environmental Services.

During that time, Jeanie became the director of the Greater Meredith Program, which is a Main Street program for the Town of Meredith. Along with being the director, she also ran the Promotions Committee, of which I was a member.

Through all of my interactions with Jeanie, I was able to see first-hand her work ethic and the ability to accomplish even the most difficult task. Jeanie always completed tasks ahead of schedule and under budget. Jeanie will accept nothing less than excellence in the work she does and is a true professional. Jeanie's ability to listen and empathize with others has been a true asset to the community she served and will be a true asset to the residents of this state.

With Forrester as governor our kids won't have to leave for good jobs

To The Daily Sun,

This is a very important election coming up. We always seem to say that. But this election is different. It is the turning point of our state and country.

It was not long ago, when New Hampshire did not have any money in the rainy day fund. The state spent more than it had coming in.

When Maggie Hassan took office she spent and spent and ignored her budget. When it came to submit a budget, her budget was huge and not realistic. She wanted to raise taxes and fees.

Our Legislature brought it to reality. They paid her overspending and made a budget with funds New Hampshire was receiving. This is in large part due to my state senator, Jeanie Forester. She was on the Senate Finance Committee and later became its chairwoman and created a realistic budget.

Jeanie is running for governor. Although I hate to lose her as my state senator, I am thrilled to have her as our governor.

Jeanie is the only candidate who signed a pledge to oppose any tax increase and she will cut taxes and fees. If Jeanie says she is going to do something, rest assured she will do it.

Since the Legislature cut the business tax, (only a little and hopefully they will cut more) business is on the increase in New Hampshire.

She is the only candidate opposed to Obamacare.

Obamacare is in trouble. There are states that next year will not have any choices for insurance for Obamacare. We in New Hampshire have choices, but who knows for how long.

Jeanie is a financial conservative. She will bring good-paying jobs to New Hampshire. New Hampshire citizens will no longer have to work a few part-time jobs to pay bills. She will bring in good-paying jobs that will give benefits. Our children will not have to leave the state for good-paying jobs.

With more good business in New Hampshire, the byproduct will be less fees and taxes for New Hampshire citizens. She will attack the addiction head-on and help our citizens and families of citizens.

I have emailed Jeanie many times with questions of what was going on in the state. She always returned my emails. I am not saying she will do this as governor, but she will be a responsible and caring governor for the citizens of New Hampshire.

New Hampshire is lucky to have Jeanie as a public servant. New Hampshire needs Jeanie as its next governor.
