To The Daily Sun,
I was a legislator back in the 1980s and was interested to note at the time how few of the 400 members really make a difference in that body. How few are actually listened to when they take the mic on the floor — maybe 75 out of 400.
I have watched Liz Merry in her many activities in New Hampshire, and in her term in the New Hampshire House when she lived in Sanbornton, and I'm so impressed by her leadership skills, knowledge, work ethic, and her commitment to the things she values.
She has an amazing resume, which includes a leadership role in Nortel Networks, as well as working on environmental projects internationally. Her interests are broad. Her commitment to mental health has been demonstrated by her leadership of NAMI-NH the National Association for Mental Illness as well as at Genesis Behavioral Health right here in Laconia. Her work on the LRGHealthcare board over the last several years has been important as the hospital and health system has been transforming itself to better meet the needs of the broader Lakes Region.
Liz Merry has immersed herself in the community, and is aware of the wide range of needs at the local and state levels. A strategic thinker, she is an asset to any cause she undertakes. We are lucky to have her as a candidate for the New Hampshire House from Laconia.
Please don't forget to vote in the Primary on Sept. 13 and support Liz Merry for state representative.
