As state sentator, Forrester has been a listener and a helper

To The Daily Sun,

I have known Jeanie Forrester for many years and have worked with her on a number of projects. She has been a valuable asset to the Lakes Region Visiting Nurses Association, keeping the organization abreast of changes in the regulations. I have worked with her on Turn Up the Heat which raises money to help needy people in the towns of Meredith, Center Harbor, and Moultonborough with their fuel bills. Jeanie is very organized, and she is always a pleasure to work with.

Jeanie has been an outstanding state senator, traveling around to all the towns in her district listening to the needs of the people and helping when and wherever she can. It doesn't matter whether the person is a Republican or a Democrat. She willing to help.

She doesn't toot her horn, but was named State Senator of the Year, and Woman of the Year by Keene State College. Jeanie has the ability to work with people on both sides of the aisle. These are just a few of the reasons I am supporting Jeanie Forrester for governor, and I strongly urge you to vote for her also.

For the sheriff to write letter belitting his employee is just mean

To The Daily Sun,

I don't like getting involved in politics, but I could not stand by and allow the unfairness by (Belknap County) Sheriff (Craig) Wiggin to go unmentioned. I have worked in law enforcement for many years and have worked with William Wright and Craig Wiggin. I could not believe while reading the (letters to the editor) this morning that one's own boss would throw his employee under the bus.

Sheriff Wiggin, you should be ashamed of yourself. You of all people should stay out of this and keep your opinion to yourself. If you wish to vote for Mike Moyer that is your privilege, but to go on a public newspaper and belittle your employee by stating he is not qualified to be sheriff is just plain mean.

And to the public, you should know that Mike Moyer is collecting a police pension from the state of New Hampshire. He is collecting this as he has retired from law enforcement. He is allowed to collect a salary from Belknap County if elected sheriff and continue to collect his pension as the sheriff is an elected position and does not count toward retirement. Essentially he is double dipping.

Sheriff Wiggin also did this for the four years he has been sheriff, collecting a pension from his retirement from the State Police. As taxpayers in Belknap County, we need to look at what these retired on-duty sheriffs have done for us while in office. Their interest, in my opinion, is not on law enforcement, but lining their pockets.

I have spoken with Bill Wright and found that he is very ambitious and eager to make many changes for Belknap County and local law enforcement. He has many years experience and is currently a supervisor for the Sheriff's Department. The Sheriff's Department in our county should be more than court security and paper servers. They have the ability to be so much more and can be with Bill Wright in charge.
