To The Daily Sun,
I’m writing to support Harry Viens for State Rep. in Belknap District 1. Harry has a proven record of making sound decisions as a two-term selectman and as he begins his 9th year as a member of the board of directors of the New Hampshire Electric Coop. He approaches every situation using common sense and is an excellent steward of taxpayer and ratepayer dollars. He understands local issues and the importance of local control because problems are solved better, faster, at lower cost, and more efficiently at the local level — as he has shown his ability to do so time and time again.
Harry has been instrumental in sensibly reducing the town budget, and founded the Center Harbor Community Development Association to increase and improve economic activity. He worked with the Conservation Commission to develop a water resources ordinance to keep our lakes clean. In short, Harry knows local issues and effectively solves problems by leading. We would do well to send him to Concord to add his skills, knowledge and energy to solving our state’s problems.
