CAROL SHEA-PORTER: New Hampshire Needs Naomi Andrews In Congress
I have had the great honor of serving the people of New Hampshire’s First District in Congress for four terms, so I know the job and its responsibilities very well. During that time, I have served with three different presidents, both in the majority and in the minority, so I know how and who to work with to still get things done. I know the issues that New Hampshire and America have dealt with over those four terms I have served—the great recession, two wars, terrorism and other national security threats, challenges our active duty military and veterans face, climate change and toxic chemicals in our air and water, spiraling costs for education, flat wages, affordable health care and child care, substance use disorders…to name just a few. I also know the various kinds of concerns that lead Granite Staters to seek assistance.
There is only one candidate running to replace me in Congress who also knows these issues well. That is one of my favorite people, Naomi Andrews, who was with me on my very first day in Congress and resigned her position as my Chief of Staff to run for the congressional seat. Naomi has my enthusiastic endorsement because she has years of experience on Capitol Hill and in our district and because she is running for the right reason and running the right way. Naomi is running “for the rest of us.” She grew up in Epping in a hard working blue collar family. Through her family’s great effort and sacrifice, she and her siblings all went to college, and Naomi went to law school. She loves and understands our state, and wants to keep serving us. She is also running without corporate PAC or DC lobbyist money, as I always have. We both have seen too much dirty money in politics, and she is doing her part to clean it up.
Although there are good candidates in this race, I hope you will join me and vote for Naomi Andrews, who is fired up and ready to go to Congress. She knows public office is a public trust, and she is a great public servant. New Hampshire needs Naomi’s knowledge, her experience, and her courage to always do what’s right. I trust her completely, and you can also. Please vote for Naomi Andrews this coming Tuesday, September 11.
