To The Daily Sun,
It gets really tiresome when people share false information on the internet and present it as fact. It seems like many will just share something that fits their agenda without even bothering to do the tiniest bit of due diligence. It’s not only annoying, it’s damaging. When we lose our integrity, we lose a very central part of who we are. And so, it is with a sincere apology to my mother, I must break the rule, “If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all,” as I proceed to discuss the N.H. Congressional District #1 Republican Primary.
As we are all painfully aware, politics can be a very nasty business. It can turn ugly at the drop of the hat about truisms, but when the truth is completely abandoned and a twisted vitriol is all that’s spewed, then it’s not only ugly, it’s tainted to the point where good people throw their hands up and stay home. We have a lot of wonderful people running for office on both sides of the aisle in both congressional districts. We are very fortunate that they have all stepped up and agreed to undergo a thorough dissection of their personal lives.
In the CD #1 Republican Primary we have a candidate who I find beyond reproach. His name is Eddie Edwards. Eddie is an honorable Navy veteran, and a retired police professional. He’s also run his own consulting business to help business owners navigate the highly regulated liquor industry. He’s an animal advocate, having giving much of his time serving on the board of the Cocheco Valley Humane Society, a veteran’s advocate, working tirelessly with at risk veterans at Veterans’ count, a wonderful husband, a great father and an amazing friend.
The lies being spread by some of his opponent, Andy Sanborn’s, supporters are just unbelievable. Suspected of this …. tossing around racial insults… myriad marriages… What’s next? Boston Strangler come back to life? Good God, man, how badly the Sanborn team must want this seat to spread malicious gossip and outright lies. It really makes me wonder what they’re deflecting from their candidate, but of course, we have only to look at the court records to see what Sanborn can’t hide.
I encourage every single Republican to get out and vote on September 11. Vote for Eddie Edwards. Do your own research. The FACTS speak for themselves.
