Letter To The Editor


To the editor:

As a New Hampshire resident on the verge of completing 50 years in construction, I worry about who is going to build our state as my generation exits the field. We need leaders who will implement policies that assure that careers in the building trades are secure and attractive to our young people.


Fortunately, we have a candidate on Senate District 6 who is acutely aware of the exodus of our young people and has been working in his field to create good high-paying jobs and make New Hampshire a better place for business.


Joe Casey has been working hard as an International Representative for the Electricians Union getting projects off the ground with good paying jobs for high skilled New Hampshire workers. He was instrumental in creating the best electrical training center in New England. He understands that education and vocational training and creating a skilled workforce makes our state more attractive to employers.


Residents of Barnstead, Gilmanton, Alton, New Durham, Rochester, and Farmington have the opportunity to vote for a proven leader, passionate about improving the lives of working people. A vote for Joe Casey on November 8th is a vote for good jobs and building a strong economy for New Hampshire.
