I'm running for state rep; I'd like to discuss your interests/concerns

To The Daily Sun,

My name is Tom Dawson. I am running for the position of State Representative for Laconia. I came to Laconia in 1972 and with one exception have been here ever since.

I don't walk very well, so I will be using my 1916 Cadillac as the centerpiece for my campaign. You may have seen me in the Fourth of July parade loaded with all the family cousins. I will not be going door-to-door, but will try to meet people at the farmers market and other events.

Watch for display ads and more Letters to the Editor concerning my qualifications and beliefs on various issues facing our state. If you have questions please call me at 524-5935 or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

I love this state and want to serve the people of New Hampshire, and especially Laconia.

See you around. Feel free to introduce yourself and discuss your interests and concerns. Don't forget to vote in the Primary on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Five of us are running for four seats.

Tom Dawson

We are fortunate to have Hllside Surgery Center in Lakes Region

To The Daily Sun,

Having spent time at the Hillside Surgery Center in Gilford recently, I wish to express my thanks and appreciation to the staff. No surgery is ever a pleasant experience, but the expertise and ability of the professionals at this center need to be recognized. My sincere thanks to Helen, Pat, Deb, Vicky, Kathy and Linda for their TLC above and beyond the call of duty.

We in the Lakes Region are fortunate to have such a facility in our midst. I also extend my gratitude to Dr. Shetty and his fine staff. Thank you all.
Sharlee Hynes
