Wolfeboro Democrats are excited to welcome back former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter. Carol represented NH 1st District for four terms, interrupted twice by. Republican challenger Frank Guinta. She arrived in the Congress by beating Jeb Bradley, now a NH Senator, despite getting no support from the Democratic National Committee. She defeated Bradley again, this time endorsed by the Democratic Congressional Committee’s Frontline Program which is designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents. She was also supported by Emily’s List. While in Congress, Shea-Porter served on the Education and Labor Committee, The Armed Services Committee and the Natural Resources Committee. In 2020 she was named a vice-chair of the Democratic National Convention. Carol distinguished herself by her conscientious and principled service and her support for veterans and increasing the minimum wage. She was also a regular participant with local Democrats walking in the Fourth of July parade.
While looking forward to opportunities to gather again in person, the May meeting with Carol as our guest will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, May 25 at 7:00 PM. Register by clicking here.
Our guest this month is Corey Garry, a key member of Maggie Hassan’s campaign team. As you know, Maggie is up for re-election to the US Senate. This is a must-win seat for Democrats. Simply, the loss of one seat will return the Senate to Republican control and the end of our hopes for infrastructure, health care, immigration justice, racial justice, green industry and more. But equally important as the political head count is the character and dedication of Senator Hassan. Simply put, she cares! She cares about children who struggle with mental and physical challenges. she cares about Americans in uniform. She cares about the environment we will leave to our children.
We need to be all-in for Maggie’s campaign. Corey Garry will help us know the challenges we face and how we can do our part to keep her in Washington. Please join our Zoom meeting on April 26.
