Letter: Gardner is a gem

Tuesday, December 04, 2018

Will they or won’t they keep Secretary of State Bill Gardner in his corner office in the N.H. State House? I say they should. He’s a nonpartisan gem. I’ve gone to his office numerous times during filing-for-office days. He’s 100 percent in treating all comers equally. You get not a whiff of partisan politics. I can’t help but think Colin Van Ostern’s bid for the office is part of licking wounds. He lost to Gov. Chris Sununu. He has a head for politics; that’s why he was good as an executive councilor. He should sit it out this time and run for office again, his background being solidly with Democratic Party principles.
