I’ll work to solve state’s problems
To the editor:
I want to thank all those who worked for my election and especially those who voted for me for state representative. I am extremely humbled and proud to be your voice at the Statehouse.
During my campaign I met hundreds of voters in Derry, and I firmly believe that most of us share the same basic goals whether we call ourselves Democrats, Republicans or independents. We want a vibrant economy, quality health care, and an affordable, first-rate education for our children. Where we disagree often is on how to get there. I am convinced that the solutions lie somewhere in the middle. But we will never get there unless we talk to each other and listen to each other with open minds.
As your state representative, I will work with everyone who shares the same goals and is committed to finding new solutions to old problems when the old solutions are not working. Again, I thank you for your confidence in me.
Legislature must seek common ground
To the editor:
I thank the voters of Londonderry who placed their confidence in me to carry their message to the New Hampshire House of Representatives. I will do my best to achieve sensible answers to the issues that we confront as a community by working with our delegation and other representatives from around the state.
I have lived in Londonderry for more than 30 years, and spent much of that time working in local and state government. I raised two children and brought my mother here to share her last years with my family. I stayed on to bring five grandchildren to play on our lawn; my roots go deep. I feel I know my state and what makes us special.
