Pizza Barn Powwow

We had Karen’s tasty pizza and planned out more of the home stretch of the campaign! Autumn served us and educated us once again on why so many young people are leaving our great state of NH. We hope to address the hurdles they face and retain our youth!

@ Cindy’s Place in Wakefield

Great to be out listening to people’s concerns at Cindy’s Place. Met a school teacher in a summer job as waitress to keep up with her family’s needs. A small business woman working her heart out and giving to the community. Majority wants common sense in Concord!

Breakfast at Lino’s

Knute Ogren, Pat Pustell, Theresa Swanick

The Dynamic Trio had breakfast at Lino’s Restaurant this morning. We missed the man himself (Lino’s a busy guy!) but the food was awesome and Jill and Donna friendly servers! We three are running for the three open seats in the NH House to represent Wakefield, Ossipee, Brookfield and Effingham.

We discussed the issues that the citizens we talk to care about: fighting the opioid epidemic; keeping young people in NH; supporting businesses and families (since businesses are families) with good schools, affordable healthcare, and improved infrastructure; legalizing marijuana to help treat opiate addiction, help fund that treatment, and help fund education and defray property taxes which are among the highest in the nation. We have new energy and fresh ideas we’d like to take to Concord for Wakefield, Ossipee, Brookfield and Effingham!

Meeting @Hobbs in Ossipee

Theresa Swanick, Knute Ogren, Mike the waiter, Patricia Pustell, Ryan Sempf

We spoke with yet another young person who can’t make the money she needs to in NH and is planning to move so she can make enough money working part time to allow her to attend school out of state. Very ambitious young lady NH is losing… we hope to change that. When kids say they need to make higher minimum wage and their parents nod their heads, you know it’s true… we need fresh ideas to invest in the young people of NH, the future of NH! Vote for Knute and Pat and me to represent Ossipee, Effingham, Wakefield and Brookfield in Concord come November 6. Register to vote with your town clerk.

Effingham Street Fair

From Left: Knute Ogren and Grace Fuller

Knute and I visited the Effingham Street Fair on Saturday morning. What a great time! Here’s Knute’s report:

“The whoopie pies by Susan — awesome. Edith’s Swedish Almond Squares were getting lots of shout outs. I enjoyed connecting with Grace at this booth that had people like me buying dimes to throw into pans and tins and any number of metal containers. It was very cool. I met Noah who was WAY better than me and won lots of tickets.

Kudos to everyone who had a role in organizing the Effingham Street Fair. It’s good when the community comes together. Effingham Elementary, Effingham Fire, the Effingham Historical Society, the Effingham Preservation Society … wicked good.”
