Letter: Alford-Teaster is the smart choice in District 8

Published: 9/29/2020 12:01:11 AM

As the owner of a medium-sized Manchester business who lives in Senate District 8, I will proudly cast my vote for Jenn Alford-Teastor for state Senate on Nov. 3.

When COVID hit, we, like many businesses, felt overwhelmed and scared for our employees. The first person we turned to was Jenn because of her public health and emergency management experience. Jenn is a public health scientist whose research focuses on rural access to health care. She has worked in emergency management assisting fire, police, hospital, and municipal organizations to strengthen their ability to respond to disasters.

When so much was unknown about the pandemic, we trusted in science; we trusted in Jenn to help keep our employees safe.

Jenn supported us through developing our COVID protocols and provided ongoing guidance and encouragement with the government funding processes. She is always accessible (through countless worried questions), wise, calm, supportive, and, most of all, kind. And in this day and age, kindness matters.

Our district and our state need and deserve the intelligence, experience, and public service orientation that Jenn offers. She truly cares and advocates for all. I will be forever grateful to her for her support at an extremely trying time in the history of our company and our state. We are surviving, and Jenn played an important role in that.

Please join in me in casting your vote to elect Jenn Alford-Teaster the next senator of Senate District 8.
