Letter: Ardinger has the experience
In choosing the best candidate for state Senate in District 15, a past history of representative success is an important consideration.
Others led the way with years of elected experience before running for the state Senate.
Sylvia Larsen, eight years on the Concord City Council, and Susan McLane, 12 years as a state representative, both served many years before becoming a state senator and served throughout with distinction.
Kass Ardinger has been elected three times to the Concord School Board, serving eight years, including five as president.
Her opponent has no elected experience. Kass has deep roots in New Hampshire, having been raised in Claremont and living much of her life in Concord. She has given 25 years of volunteer time to a variety of organizations serving the people of this state.
Her opponent is a relative newcomer to the state. Because of this long connection to New Hampshire, Ardinger understands well the issues of our community and state.
She has been elected multiple times to public service and has fulfilled her responsibilities in an intelligent, thoughtful and committed way guided by her strong values and leadership strengths.
While youth and a lack of elected service should not preclude running for office, we hope people will strongly consider the value of proven representative success and cast their vote for Ardinger for the New Hampshire Senate on Sept. 9.
