Travis Bennett will work for bipartisan solutions - like Sid Lovett

To The Daily Sun,

Travis Bennett has my vote to represent Plymouth, Holderness, and Hebron in the state House of Representatives. Travis embodies youthful energy and intellect and seeks greater political cooperation — crucial for the success of our State.

As a young man, Travis served as a congressional page in the U.S. House of Representatives where he witnessed first-hand the kind of political impasse he hopes to surmount in our state Legislature. As a political science student at PSU, Travis helped to encourage a civil society throughout the surrounding community, geared toward stimulating fruitful debate and cooperation on issues that matter. He is an experienced organizer, having helped organize international trips to academic conferences in Finland and Brazil, having assisted with the organization of the Plymouth High School Model U.N. Conference, and as a student representative to the Peace and Social Justice Studies Council.

A lifelong resident of New Hampshire, Travis spent much of his childhood exploring and enjoying the natural beauty of our lakes, rivers, and mountains. He also worked to help conserve this land as a volunteer and leader of volunteers on trail maintenance crews with the Appalachian Mountain Club and in two search and rescues in Huntington Ravine.

Travis Bennett will work on bipartisan solutions to continue Sid Lovett's legacy for the preservation and conservation of our surrounding natural environment, ensure the access of all citizens to affordable healthcare, respect the reproductive rights of women, and improve political access and representation of New Hampshire's young people, transcending party lines for common-sense policies and initiatives.

Please vote for Travis on Nov. 4.

I respect traditions of caring for environment, elderly & children

To The Daily Sun,

An open letter to the voters of Meredith and Gilford:

I am a candidate for the state House of Representatives and I am writing to ask you for your vote. There are lots of important issues facing New Hampshire and Belknap County and I would like to add my voice and talents to help solve the problems and meet the challenges facing our district.

My primary qualification is the ability to work collaboratively. I think that the hyper-partisan atmosphere that has infected the County Convention is a travesty. As a member of the convention and the state House I would take the responsibilities of office seriously. I know that government programs are important in operating our county and state. To pretend otherwise is irresponsible.

The residents of Belknap County rely on their representatives to fulfill their obligations as employer and provider of services. I will take that responsibility seriously.

My other qualifications include a background in business, education and non-profit organizations. I have lived and worked in the Lakes Region for more than 50 years. I know and love this area and respect the traditions of caring for the environment, the elderly, and children. Selfishness and greed are not New Hampshire values and never have been. Respect for tradition, education and individualism are the New Hampshire values I know. We take responsibility for our obligations.

Thank you for your consideration and thank you for voting on Nov. 4. Our democracy depends on you.

Sandra J. Mucci
