To The Daily Sun,
Last Saturday I spent a fun day with Jeanie Forrester, a candidate for governor. Along with her supporters, she marched in the parade in Warren. It was really impressive how many people showed up from all the area towns. I had a lot of fun before the parade going around meeting and talking to the local folks.
I met many veterans and we were able to sign up about 15 of them that will support Jeanie. A lot of them knew her as their state senator and were really pleased with her service for the area.
The one thing that surprised me was that that not one other candidate for governor was there. It seems they only need to be in the southern part of the state where the majority of the voters live. Jeanie is keeping her promise when she entered the race for governor that she is running to serve all the people of New Hampshire.
I personally feel great knowing she realizes how important the North Country is. The one thing I have noticed the past few weeks is how Chris Sununu has started to run his campaign as if he is in the general election. I have a lot of respect for his dad, the (former) governor, and brother, the (former U.S.) senator. I hope he doesn't think because of his name that makes him the winner.
To prove my point, most of you must know the name Jeb Bush. Many thought there was no way he could be
beaten. Well guess what? After more than $100 million spent he never got higher than fifth place.
New Hampshire needs something more than money and a family name to get us back to the great state we once were. Jeanie isn't taking anything for granted and knows she has three other good people running for the same job. I hope you get to meet her and see why she is the best candidate to be our governor.
I got off subject for a little bit. Back to Saturday, after returning to Meredith a cookout was held at Richard and Carol Gerkens for veterans and their families. Jeanie got to talk to many of the veterans and listen to their concerns. Jeanie said as senator she has heard many of the problems the veterans of New Hampshire are facing, and as governor she would make veteran issues on the top of her list and do all she could to improve the situation that it is at the present time.
We need someone that cares about all of us, and I believe that person is Jeanie Forrester.
