"I'm very pleased to endorse Jay Kahn in his campaign for the State Senate.  Jay's distinguished record as a leader in both the business community and higher education makes him the best choice to represent the 10th District in Concord.

"I have had the privilege to work with Jay on a number of important initiatives that will increase economic opportunities and help students gain the skills they need for good-paying jobs right here in New Hampshire.  His innovative work creating KSC’s Technology, Design, and Safety Center is helping prepare students to fill valuable manufacturing, construction, and design positions.  His work to establish the Regional Center for Advanced Manufacturing with the Greater Keene Chamber, Keene State College, River Valley Community College, and the Cheshire Vocational Center and area businesses is a model for workforce development collaboration.

"Jay is smart and compassionate, and I know he will fight every day for his constituents. I look forward to working with him to get results for New Hampshire in the years to come."


This endorsement follows Jay Kahn's support from State Senator Molly Kelly and State House Representatives Michael D. Abbott, Dick Ames, Paul Berch, John Bordenet, Cynthia Chase, Gladys Johnsen, John Mann, Larry Phillips, Tara Sad, Marge Shepardson, Bruce Tatro, and Lucy Weber, all of whom are current Cheshire County elected officials. Congresswoman Annie Kuster has represented New Hampshire's Second Congressional District since 2013.  She has established a record of putting aside party politics to focus on the issues that matter most to Granite Staters, and is seeking a third term in November.
