Throughout his career, Moyer has treated people with respect

To The Daily Sun,

We have an opportunity this year to elect a man to the office of Sheriff of Belknap County who is truly unique.

Mike Moyer has been involved in law enforcement in Laconia for 27 years, starting out as a patrolman, then going through the ranks as corporal, detective, sergeant, lieutenant, captain, all the way to chief of the Laconia PD.

Along the way, Mike always treated everyone that he encountered with respect, and as an appreciated human being first. Whether as a patrolman stopping a car, or as a detective investigating a crime, each person was treated with respect; as a person that counted. As an officer in command, he treated his fellow officers as valued men and women, whom he appreciated and depended upon.

When Mike Moyer speaks to you, he will look you in the eye, and you will have his full attention, and he will listen to you and hear what you are saying. These qualities of appreciating people as people first, and understanding that one particular situation doesn't need to define this particular human being for the rest of their life, is what makes Mike Moyer a very special person, and a very special law enforcement officer. It is why someone that Mike had arrested in the past, felt that it was necessary to let Mike know that they would support him in his campaign for Sheriff of Belknap County. This person respected Mike, and understood that Mike did what was necessary at that time, and appreciated that Mike had treated them respectfully.

I believe Mike Moyer will be a sheriff in the style of Dan Collis. I doubt you could find anyone that would find fault with Dan. He was a man that all respected, and a man that respected others. He had an ever-present smile and a desire to be the very best he could be for the people of Belknap County. I see Mike as the same opportunity to have a man that will take this very important job and give it his all, and give the people of Belknap County a Sheriff that will uphold the law, respect the people, respect his officers, and do his utmost to defend and protect the Constitution.

I thank Mike and his wife Robin for taking on this campaign, and I hope I have the opportunity to soon call him Sheriff Mike Moyer.

As state sentator, Forrester has been a listener and a helper

To The Daily Sun,

I have known Jeanie Forrester for many years and have worked with her on a number of projects. She has been a valuable asset to the Lakes Region Visiting Nurses Association, keeping the organization abreast of changes in the regulations. I have worked with her on Turn Up the Heat which raises money to help needy people in the towns of Meredith, Center Harbor, and Moultonborough with their fuel bills. Jeanie is very organized, and she is always a pleasure to work with.

Jeanie has been an outstanding state senator, traveling around to all the towns in her district listening to the needs of the people and helping when and wherever she can. It doesn't matter whether the person is a Republican or a Democrat. She willing to help.

She doesn't toot her horn, but was named State Senator of the Year, and Woman of the Year by Keene State College. Jeanie has the ability to work with people on both sides of the aisle. These are just a few of the reasons I am supporting Jeanie Forrester for governor, and I strongly urge you to vote for her also.
