Executive Councilor Kenney to address next TEA Party meeting

To The Daily Sun,

The Lakes Region TEA Party is pleased that Executive Councilor Joe Kenney will be the key speaker at its Sept. 21, meeting at 7 p.m. at the Moultonborough Library, 4 Holland St., Moultonborough.

Also, Marc Abear will provide an update on the Convention of States effort, and there should be time to discuss the primary election results and other topics of interest.

Joe Kenney treats being an executive councilor as a full-time job. Since being elected to succeed Ray Burton, he has been averaging about 60,000 miles annually to meet, represent, and help the citizens of his district and the state. Joe brought a wealth of experience to his executive councilor position, having served as a selectman, a state representative and state senator. Joe has also served our country for 30 years as a Marine, including tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and achieving the rank of lieutenant colonel. Joe is running for re-election to the executive council.

Marc Abear is a retired businessman, a SCORE mentor for small businesses, a fighter for constitutional government, and a candidate for state representative from Meredith and Gilford.

The Lakes Region TEA Party meetings are open to the public to attend, listen and participate in our discussions.

Recruits do not receive basic training at Camp LeJeune, N.C.

To The Daily Sun,

Concerning your cover photo caption in the Sept. 13 edition of the Sun, I'm sure that it was due to a miscommunication.

There are only two recruit training depots in the United States for the Marine Corps. One is MCRD San Diego in California and the other is MCRD Parris Island in South Carolina. Recruits do not receive basic training or "Boot Camp" at Camp LeJeune in North Carolina.

I apologize if this seems petty but Marines have a "thing" about accuracy.

That being said, I am sure that every Marine the world over wishes our brother Marine an eventual cure and many years of good health. Godspeed Derek. Semper Fidelis.
