Spagnuolo is a simple citizen who wants to solve a huge problem

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Laconians will get the chance to exercise their right to vote for a state House representative on Feb. 27. I will be voting for Phil Spagnuolo, a founding member of Navigating Recovery, who will focus attention on the opioid crisis in New Hampshire. He is passionate about being an advocate for those suffering from substance use disorder and uses his own journey of recovery to help others.

Recovery includes other aspects of the social and economic environment and consequently Phil's other priorities in the New Hampshire House would be building an economy that works for everyone and supporting our public schools. He had my vote when he explained that he was sick of going to Concord and being ignored. He is no politician but is running because he sees a problem crying out for a remedy and no one else is really listening. He is the epitome of what the Founding Fathers envisioned — a simple citizen who wants to solve a civic problem.

Please join me in supporting Phil Spagnuolo sending the signal that ordinary citizens can and will make their voices heard.
