Thanks for your support in the primary; now we look to November 8

To The Daily Sun,

I'd like to thank the voters of Sanbornton and Tilton who came out and voted in Tuesday, Sept. 13's, primary election. Especially I'd like to thank my constituents who voted for me, placed my signs in their yards, and who helped my candidacy along the way. Your support made my win in the primary possible.

However, the fight is not yet over. I hope to have earned your support in the general election on Nov. 8. We have a lot of work to do in Concord, and I hope you will vote to send me back to work tirelessly on your behalf. If I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at 603-528-6224.

In my leadership role as clerk for the House Criminal Justice & Public Safety Committee, I pledge to stand with our law enforcement community, protect our Second Amendment rights, and look for opportunities to improve public safety and update our criminal code.

It has been a true honor to serve the citizens of Belknap District 4. I thank you for your support in the primary, and I look forward to earning your support in the general election.

Rep. Dennis Fields

I was teaching a 4th grade class at Pleasant Street School on 9/11

To The Daily Sun,

I am a fourth-grade teacher at Pleasant Street School in Laconia.

Teachers make connections with their students every day. Never did I think that a connection made in my classroom on Sept. 11, 2001, would continue to last after all these years.
As I met my class after hearing the devastating news on that fateful day, I was at a loss for words, wanting to keep calm in the face of such uncertainty. I simply told my students that something dreadful had happened to our country and they would be hearing much more about it on the news when they got home.

It was certainly an emotional day for all of us. Of course, we all remember where we were and how we felt.

One of my students, Joshua Cherok was in my class that year. Each year since he has sent a letter of remembrance on the anniversary of 9/11.

In this year's letter, he reflected on how we came together as a class under very difficult circumstances and how he felt safe. He remembered how the tissue box was passed around as we sat in the circle just being together. He remembered...

Josh had a dream of becoming an airline pilot as evidenced by his fourth-grade illustration on our classroom door. I am proud to say he has achieved his dream and is flying planes today.
On behalf of teachers everywhere and particularly my colleagues at Pleasant Street School, keep making those connections. You never know where they will lead.

Mary Faria

Grade 4, Pleasant Street School
