Nov. 1 — To the Editor:

Like every good Independent, I vote individual over party. Jaci Grote has my support for State Representative. Jaci’s years on Rye’s Planning Board, Conservation Commission and Budget Committee have shown her to be practical and determined. She is no Pollyanna – this is a successful business woman who can balance doing the right thing with fiscal responsibility. She understands what is special about the Seacoast and can be counted on to fairly represent every member of our community. Leave the partisan rhetoric to the grandstanders – vote for experience and fair-mindedness.
