To The Daily Sun,
A recent candidate's forum held at the Pease Library in Plymouth revealed that all of the candidates running for elective office during this election cycle are against the Northern Pass, either favoring burial, or totally against the Northern Pass.
I can personally attest to the fact that Omer Ahern, Jr., who is running for state representative for the area of Plymouth, Hebron and Holderness, has accompanied me to various meetings around the state for the past four years for the purpose of exposing the horrors of the Northern Pass Project. Omer made contacts around the state, which have enormously promoted our cause. He has spoken against the Northern Pass at New Hampshire Grange meetings, New Hampshire Farm Bureau meetings, and various civic organizations to which he belongs. Additionally, Omer has attended various hearings with me, most recently, the SB-99 hearings in Concord regarding the restructuring of the Site Evaluation Committee.
Yes, being a politician who is against the Northern Pass shows a conviction to do what's right, but long-term commitment and actions taken to promote our fight against the Northern Pass demonstrates that Omer is with us for the long haul, which is why he has my vote.
