** ———————————————————— Dear Friend,
THANK YOU to all Granite Staters who voted, volunteered and ran for office on Tuesday, November 7th!
In NH, we made HISTORY by electing Joyce Craig as the first female mayor in Manchester! In doing so, she defeated 4-term incumbent Republican Mayor Ted Gatsas, ending a 12-year run of Republican mayors in New Hampshire’s largest city.
On election day, 110 Democratic women won municipal elections across the state. Shoshanna Kelly and Gloria Timmons became the first ever women of color elected to citywide office in Nashua. Linda Harriott-Gathright joined Shoshanna becoming the first two African-American women elected to Nashua’s Board of Aldermen. Gerri Cannon became the first ever transgender elected official in Somersworth history. Jeremy Hutchinson became the first ever LGBT elected official in the history of Rochester. Somersworth Mayor Dana Hilliard, New Hampshire’s first ever openly gay mayor, was re-elected to his third term. Paul Grenier was elected to an unprecedented fifth term as Mayor of Berlin.
Also on Tuesday, Erika Connors and Brian Sullivan were both elected to New Hampshire’s House of Representatives in Hillsborough County District 15 and Sullivan County District 1, respectively. Thanks to their victories, New Hampshire Democrats have won 8 out of 10 special elections this year.
These victories are just the beginning of the amazing things we can accomplish when we turn out Democratic voters across the state. If we continue to organize and recruit strong candidates in every town, we will have huge gains across the state in 2018.
Please continue to use this regular newsletter as a tool for your local committee meetings or as a supplement to your own regular newsletter.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.
Best,

============================================================ Copyright © 2017 NHDP Grassroots Chair, All rights reserved. As we enter the 2018 legislative session, we will need all hands-on-deck to push back on the Republican leadership who have already made it clear that they will focus on restricting voting access, pushing through corporate tax cuts and other priorities that the people of New Hampshire do not want. My job over the next year as the NHDP Grassroots Chair will be to keep local Democrats informed and engaged during the 2018 legislative session, and I need your help!
