To The Daily Sun,
I am delighted that Mike Cryans is running for a full term on the New Hampshire Executive Council from District 1, and I hope you will all join me in voting for Mike on Nov. 4.
Executive Council District 1 is the single-largest voting district in our state, larger than either Congressional District. It covers two entire counties (Coos and Grafton) and parts of five others (Belknap, Carroll, Merrimack, Strafford and Sullivan) and comprises four cities (Laconia, Berlin, Lebanon and Claremont), 103 towns and 19 unincorporated places. The district was ably represented for 34 years by the legendary Ray Burton.
A district that large and diverse requires an executive councilor who can unite and balance the interests of the entire district, not divide us and alienate us with narrow-minded politics. Ray Burton succeeded by listening, not lecturing.
Mike Cryans knows how to listen and lead. As a Grafton County Commissioner for 17 years, Mike brings a respectful and civil tone to public office and a deep understanding of the needs of New Hampshire and the North Country.
Mike's varied experience as a schoolteacher and coach, as a senior executive for a local bank, as a small-business owner, and as the executive director of a community non-profit, will serve his district well. We need Mike's common sense and good judgment on the Executive Council.
