Keene Sentinel Endorses Maggie

Keene Sentinel Endorses Maggie Hassan

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.

    For those making up their minds, I highly recommend this endorsement, because it so succinctly lays the case out for Maggie.

    The Sentinel recognizes the quality of all the Democratic candidates, notes the many areas of agreement, praises both Jackie Cilley and Maggie Hassan for their experience and dedication to years of service, and sets out a compelling case for Maggie Hassan.

    Of course I’d also like a Ferrari.

    Great endorsement and I too like the tone. They say things about Jackie that I agree with wholeheartedly.

    But the bottom line is that Maggie is the right person to lead NH right now.
