Two weeks before the General Election with Congress, Governor, State Legislatures and County Offices on the ballot. Democrats on the ballot are tested public servants that work for people not special interests. We support public education, community based health and mental health services, environmental sustainability, economic development and property tax relief. We win on the issues, now we need to win at the ballot box. Turnout is all important.
I’m proud to have earned endorsements from:
Planned Parenthood Northern New England Sierra Club-NH
National Educators Association – NH American Federation of Teachers-NH
State Employees International Union – NH National Association of Social Workers-NH
Professional Fire Fighters – NH
These organizations can help get out the vote and make the difference in close elections.
Town Select Board Leaders
I’ve made a priority of getting to Town Select Boards, engaging in discussions on state and local issues, and opening two-way communications that helped during the legislative process. I also attended School Board Deliberative Sessions and visited nearly every school in the district. This attention to bridging local and state government has helped earn me the support of many local leaders:
Kendall Lane, Mayor of Keene
Peggy Pschirrer, Walpole, Select Board Chair
Bill Hutwelker, Swanzey, Selectman
Mike Darcy, Hinsdale, Select Board Chair
Ben Kilanski, Winchester, Select Board Chair
Ray Britton, Gilsum, Select Board Chair
James Rousmaniere, Roxbury, Select Board Chair

There are two more opportunities to meet Democratic state legislature and county office candidates.
October 30 – Harrisville-Nelson Candidate Forum, Nelson Town Hall, 6:45 pm

Women’s Empowerment Rally
This coming Saturday, October 27th, there’s an exciting opportunity to hear women leaders including Annie Kuster, Molly Kelly and Debora Pignatelli, at the KSC Redfern Arts Center, from 1 to 3. Let me know if you can help staff a Kahn for Senate table.
Superior Court Judge Brown of Hillsborough County granted an injunction against new Voter Registration requirements in SB 3, that new voter affidavit requirements in SB 3 constitute potentially burdensome and discriminatory barriers. SB 3 has 10 pages of affidavit declarations that new registrants need to review and initial, as opposed to the current 1 ½ page affidavit. Expert testimony stated that the new affidavit reads “at least as difficult as a Harvard Law Review.” The WMUR story can be found here…
The Democratic Coordinated Campaign Office has done a great job finding likely Democratic voters in Cheshire County. Now they need us to help Get Out the Vote (GOTV). Please offer your time and talent to help in these final 2 weeks.
