State reps invite public to discuss issues Jan. 16

LACONIA — Phil Spagnuolo, the Democratic candidate for the Belknap County District 3 State House seat, along with reps. Charlie St. Clair and Dave Huot, will hold a question-and-answer session at the Huot Center, 26 Dewey St., from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Spagnuolo, a recovery coach at Navigating Recovery of the Lakes Region, will face Republican Les Cartier in a Feb. 27 special election to determine the successor to the late Rep. Don Flanders, R-Laconia.

Cartier, a retired hazardous materials coordinator for the State Fire Marshal’s Office, defeated William Henry Davies in the Republican primary on Tuesday. Spagnuolo did not face Democratic opposition.
