To The Daily Sun,
If you are a candidate for office, you have a basic obligation to the people of your district. If you expect us to vote for you, we have a right to learn about your ideas and vision, and you have a duty to hear your constituents' concerns.
Kathy Rago apparently believes that she owes nothing to the voters of Laconia and Gilford. She expects to get away with a stealth campaign for State Senate in District 7. She hasn't appeared at any public forums in these two locations, and now she has even refused to attend the Lakes Region Community College candidates' forum hosted by LRCC and the League of Women Voters NH. Laconia is the largest city in District 7 and yet since Ms. Rago declined. The citizens of Laconia will not be able to hear from her before the election. Because she won't attend Senator Andrew Hosmer will not be allowed to speak at the event.
Andrew Hosmer will be there anyway to offer his time, because he wants to listen to the people he represents. Sen. Hosmer has always been there with his time and effort for the people of District 7. He has shown up for every forum or debate he has been invited to. He has agreed to any format in Laconia Ms. Rago prefers, at any location. She still refuses.
So where is Kathy Rago and why is she refusing to participate in an open forum for the voters of Laconia? Avoiding Laconia leads us to believe she wants to hide her vision, doesn't want to be held accountable for her votes, or just doesn't care about the people of Laconia, or those in Gilford.
Kathy Rago does not deserve our vote. I support Andrew Hosmer because he shows up. He takes responsibility for his votes. He is always accessible and committed to District 7. And he has a record of working hard and producing results for us. Andrew Hosmer cares about us. Kathy Rago doesn't.
