Letter: Why I support Alford-Teaster

Published: 10/14/2020 7:00:45 PM

Despite serving in our Legislature since 2017 and taking positions on several issues related to education, Sen. Ruth Ward has never sought to contact me, the chairperson of the school board, to discuss issues that impact the Kearsarge School District, the majority of whose towns are in her district. Not one time on any issue. Not school safety, not school choice, not school funding, not school reopening.

While we struggled putting together a detailed reopening plan with limited guidance from the state, we heard nothing.

Jenn Alford-Teaster met with me while she was running in 2016 and just listened to my concerns and what I was worried about as a school board member, and she asked how those in Concord would be able to help. She has been in touch many times since. That is why I support her candidacy for New Hampshire Senate District 8.
