Letters to the editor

(Continued)

Jim Lyons is the candidate who understands the consequences of our ever-expanding state government. He will continue to work to cut taxes and fund local aid. Jim Lyons will actually be our “representative.”

Jim Lyons has taken many punches while serving on Beacon Hill but has not crumbled. Lyons is a fighter for us, the taxpayers, and will not be bullied. He will continue to battle for openness and transparency in government. Please join me in re-electing Jim Lyons for state representative next Tuesday.

Support Finegold for state Senate

To the editor:

I would like to voice my support for state Sen. Barry Finegold in the upcoming elections on Nov. 6. In the many years I’ve lived in Andover, Barry has always delivered for our town. He’s been active in promoting youth sports and better educational programs for my kids and yours.

As a former public school teacher, I know how tight budgets can get. This year, Barry was able to deliver the highest amount of educational funding ever to our town. I can’t remember the last time Andover Public Schools had more money than they budgeted for. Needless to say, thanks to Barry’s efforts, our schools can improve programs, fund after school initiatives and support team sports.

We need someone at the Statehouse who is respected and reliable, someone who is responsive to our phone calls and letters and a senator who can deliver for Andover. Barry Finegold has exhibited these characteristics and I hope you consider supporting him on Nov. 6.

Re-elect Downing sheriff in Rockingham County

To the editor:

I’ve known and have been a friend of Mike Downing for over 30 years. We first met when he became a New Hampshire State Police trooper and we worked the same patrol areas. Mike was formerly a paratrooper in the U.S. Army. He displayed exceptional courage, determination and professionalism as a state trooper. Mike continued his law enforcement career as a Salem police officer and patrol supervisor before retiring and getting elected to the New Hampshire Senate.
