To The Daily Sun,
I have only one political sign on my yard this year unlike other election years when I have had up to 10. This year, I could have chosen signs for other candidates, but have decided to put up only one to introduce a new worthwhile individual, Tom Dawson, who is running for the State House of Representative.
It is hard to get your voice over the cacophony of an election period, but that is what we need to do to bring an introduction of Tom Dawson to voters in Laconia. Tom's history in public service is well documented, but what may not be apparent is his commitment to action and solving problems. Once he decided to run for office, he sprung into action and has organized a strong grass roots campaign, knocking on doors, listening to constituents — when involved, he gets active and does the work needed to get the job done. This is the type of "community representative" we need in the Statehouse.
There are lots of candidates running for state representatives in this year's campaign, but don't miss Tom because he is new. We all can benefit from new approaches, new energies, new skill sets and a new way of working with others. Tom's past experience on the School Board, as the State Fire Marshal, and as a professor at our local Lakes Region Community College make him well qualified to represent us in Concord.
