But one candidate stands out more as an outstanding leader who will bring a collaborative approach to government. Such an approach will surely be needed in the coming years to drag our state out of its financial mess and ease the political in-fighting and pettiness that has so often these days made Concord look like little more than a schoolyard at recess.
That candidate is Maggie Hassan.
They close with what is on many of our minds
Choosing between these two gifted candidates was not easy. Through her rejection of The Pledge, Cilley is making great strides in raising a much-needed conversation about the source of our state’s revenue and we have, in the past, used this very space to highlight the need for such tax reform discussion. However, in the current political climate, when nearly any topic can become instantly polarizing, such a stance could stifle thoughtful debate on other big-picture issues facing the state and be replaced by vitriolic rhetoric focused solely on taxes. That’s why at this moment so critical to New Hampshire’s future, Hassan presents Democrats with the most persuasive, yet inclusive voice in her party for fundamental change in Concord.
This is big win for the Hassan campaign in this blue corner of the state.
