To The Daily Sun,
It seems like a million candidates are running for office this "season," all vying for our attention, our support and our votes. All claim to support many of the same things. How to choose? For me, I want to see how the candidate lives, and if the values professed are the values lived.
Such is the case with Andrew Hosmer, currently serving his second N.H. Senate term. He began his career as an assistant district attorney in Massachusetts. Later, in the business world, he worked for 20-plus years as sales and marketing manager for AutoServ, growing the business to almost 200 employees.
Outside the Senate, Andrew serves as the chairman of the Holy Trinity Endowment Trust of St. Joseph Church and coaches youth soccer in Laconia. He has served on the Concord Chapter of the American Red Cross and the Belknap County Economic Development Council. He is active in the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce, United Way, Community Services, Lakes Region General Hospital and the Laconia Boys and Girls Club. Andrew is married and has four children.
When Andrew Hosmer says he supports New Hampshire businesses, I believe him. He personally understands what it takes for a New Hampshire business to succeed. He supports investing in our economic infrastructure, roads, bridges, highways, internet access, and job training, and has voted for reducing the Business Profits Tax.
His experience as a prosecutor has given him an inside look at the justice system and the ravages wrought by drug addiction. I'm not surprised he has championed bipartisan efforts to stem the tide of the state's opioid flood, fighting to strengthen prevention, treatment and recovery efforts.
Andrew Hosmer's concern for the health of all New Hampshire citizens is obvious in his volunteer work for the Lakes Region General Hospital and the Red Cross, and is backed up by his prominent role in passing the reauthorization of the New Hampshire Health Protection Act.
Not only seeking quality education and enrichment for his own kids, Andrew has worked on behalf of the children in his community. He has been a leading advocate for education K-12, our Community Colleges and University. Not just words; he really does care about and support education.
Looking at Andrew Hosmer, state senator, I like what I see.
