Letter: Walt for the future
New Hampshire needs a governor who is a proven leader and knows how to build a future for the next generation here in New Hampshire.
Walt Havenstein has proven his commitment to the next generation through his leadership of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). This robotics program focuses on educating the next generation to compete with other nations in science, technology and math.
Using more than 30 years of experience in the technology and defense industries, Havenstein has been actively involved with FIRST since 1999. He joined the board of directors in 2006, was named chairman of the board in 2010 and currently serves as vice chairman.
He helped expand FIRST as a national STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education effort through strategic relationships, including one between FIRST and BAE.
He has proven that nonprofit organizations and corporations can help build future leaders by working with local school systems. By educating the next generation of innovation leaders with technical skills, he is developing the base for new businesses in New Hampshire that will compete successfully internationally.
Using his leadership skills as a retired Marine colonel and retired CEO who managed a budget three times that of the state of New Hampshire, Havenstein will work with the Legislature to create a business climate that will nurture the development of new businesses and bring families back to New Hampshire for new opportunities.
Please vote for Walt Havenstein for governor and start building a successful future for New Hampshire.
