July 10 — To the Editor:
At a time when our politics has reached a partisan fever pitch, I believe that Chris Pappas is the right leader at the right time for New Hampshire’s First Congressional District. He is a small business owner, a native son of New Hampshire, the highest elected openly gay official in New Hampshire, and a proven leader who has brought people together to find solutions to the issues facing Granite Staters.
Chris ran for the Executive Council because five Republican Councilors - all men - defunded Planned Parenthood. Once elected, he worked to restore that funding, protecting access to health care for women, men, and families across the state. He also fought for the state’s Medicaid expansion program which insures more than 50,000 people.
Chris’s record of results reflects a moral compass, not a political one. Chris doesn’t just talk the talk — he walks the walk. He’s been consistently pro-choice, believes that health care should be a right and not a privilege, and is a progressive small business owner. Chris has stood up for our values while representing a district that has voted mainly for Republicans year after year.
Chris is working hard to earn the support of each and every voter based on what matters to them and their families. I know that Chris shares my values. That’s why I’m voting for him on Sept. 11 and I hope you will join me in electing Chris Pappas to Congress.
