Letter: Cryans for Executive Council
I am writing to voice my strong support of Mike Cryans to serve as the next Executive Councilor for District 1.
I’ve known Cryans for more than 30 years. He was born and raised in Littleton. His father, Andrew, was a Korean War and World War II veteran and worked as a local carpenter. Mike’s mother, Evelyn, who still lives in Littleton, was a homemaker. Together they instilled in Mike the value of hard work, giving back to the community and a good education.
A former teacher with deep roots in District 1, Cryans has the background and values to serve us well. The Executive Council plays a unique and important role in New Hampshire state government: approving nominations from the governor for judges, commissioners, notaries public, justices of the peace, and commissioners of deeds; approving all Sstate contracts with a value of $10,000 or more; and hearing requests for pardons, among other functions. It is essential that those serving on the Executive Council demonstrate the highest level of public service and commitment to our state.
Cryans is the best person to serve in this important position for District 1. He has served the people of Grafton County for the past 17 years as a county commissioner, acting side by side with the late great Ray Burton in a bipartisan manner to do the people’s work. Cryans will bring a commitment to promote economic development in District 1 and to continue to be a strong advocate for education.
Please join me in voting for Cryans for Executive Council on March 11. You will be glad you did.
