To The Daily Sun,
As a voter, I always take the time to look past the headlines and television ads and do my own research into where each candidate stands. With Earth Day this week, I thought I would do a little bit of homework and see where our candidates for U.S. Senate stand on environmental issues.
Now here in New Hampshire, we all know it's important to conserve land and protect our clean air and water. It's an issue that many of us vote on, and so it's important that we have leaders in Concord and Washington who agree. Fortunately for us, we do.
Senator Kelly Ayotte is no stranger to crossing the aisle to do the right thing on the environment. She supports the Clean Power Plan to help protect our air from carbon emissions, and was the first Republican to do so. She listened to the concerns of her constituents who were worried about unanswered questions about the Kinder Morgan pipeline's effects on our environment, and was the first statewide official to come out against the project. And she's been clear that she believes climate change is real. (That shouldn't have to be a concern, but sadly it is!)
After researching all this, I am glad that Kelly is our senator, and will definitely be supporting her re-election this year.
