Letter: Wazir for state rep

Wednesday, August 08, 2018

I recently met with Safiya Wazir, candidate for N.H. state representative for Ward 8, Merrimack District 17. I was impressed with her background and her desire to represent the residents of Ward 8, District 17. She has the energy and the focus to be a successful proponent for these citizens, and I urge them to vote for her on Sept. 11.

She is on the board of directors for Community Action Program for Belknap-Merrimack Counties, working to assist low-income families to become self-sufficient. She is vice chair of the Head Start state policy council to help families and children in New Hampshire.

Her core belief is that strong families are at the core of a strong education and a fruitful workforce and economy.

I believe she can bring a new perspective and effective representation. She is dedicated, and her advocacy based on her work to date shows her commitment.

Please come out and vote for her on Sept. 11.
