I liked Rep. Gallagher's 'judgement & decision making' a lot

To The Daily Sun,

This is the first letter to the editor that i have ever written, but I must respond.

Belknap County Commissioner David DeVoy spent more words and effort attacking (state Senate District 2 candidate) Mr. Gallagher than in support of Gallagher's Republican opponent, Mr. Giuda. He said he didn't like Brian's "judgment and decision making." At the executive branch I participated on a committee in hiring Mr. Gallagher. Years later, working at the judicial branch I liked his "judgment and decision making" enough to hire him again.

It appears to me that Mr. DeVoy may have a problem with people who see things differently than he does. Mr. Gallagher is only one of 18 representatives on the county delegation. How many votes did Mr. DeVoy's plan get? Apparently zero! Mr. Gallagher has experience with all three branches of the government, which will enable him to serve the people of Senate District 2 well.
