Letter: Two better choices for Andover voters

Monday, November 5, 2012

State Rep. Jenn Coffey is running as the incumbent to represent Andover, Salisbury and Danbury in newly-constituted Merrimack County District 1. In her campaign literature she talks about the need for more jobs, better services and better health care – issues with which I agree. But during the …

Advantage Bow, one more time
