I would like to share with you why I am voting for Dan Feltes for governor.

I’ve known Dan for a long time, before politics, before his current seat. He’s a good family friend, and I’d like to tell you about what I know of his core values.

Throughout Dan’s tenure in the Legislature, he sponsored countless progressive bills to expand access to health care, prioritize clean energy and carbon emission reduction, and make New Hampshire more accessible for the individual worker.

Growing up, Dan’s father worked in the same furniture factory for over 40 years and his mother worked part time while raising four kids. After graduating from law school, Dan turned down corporate law firms to work as an attorney at New Hampshire Legal Assistance, where he represented low-income families and individuals that our system has ignored and neglected. I was volunteering at NHLA and saw first-hand the incredibly powerful ways in which Dan would fight for families.

Dan shares his father and mother’s hard-work mentality and has demonstrated that he has Granite Staters’ best interest in mind. When leadership in New Hampshire was missing and delayed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Dan led the way and introduced the “Worker’s Bill of Rights” to address the disparities and hardships that arose in the wake of COVID-19.

Dan’s leadership will pave the way for Granite Staters to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for years to come. We need Dan Feltes in the corner office.
