Carroll County had some wonderful candidates during the 2018 campaign. The DEMs throughout the county worked so hard to elect great people to office to represent Carroll County in Concord. There were lots of reasons for why we were as successful as we were. Hard working candidates, meet & greets, door-knocking, media coverage, strategic placement of signs, and — perhaps most important — excellent messaging about the issues facing the towns of Carroll County and the State of New Hampshire.
Because winning seats for DEMs in this county is hard work, Carroll County DEMs must pay attention to details NOT just during the campaign season but at all times. If you’re a Carroll County DEM, be sure to write letters to the local paper now. Get to your local meeting of the Democratic Party where you are. If there is a need for leadership in your town, consider stepping up and giving leadership a try. Invite a friend or colleague or family member to join you at a regional gathering of Democrats. Engage the young people in your life about the issues facing your town, the county, and the State of New Hampshire.
Lastly, be sure you are offering support to our county’s State Reps: Rep. DesMarais (Wolfeboro), Rep. Knirk and Rep. Ticehurst (Freedom, Tamworth, Madison, & Albany), Rep. Buco, Rep. Woodcock, & Rep. Kanzler (Conway, Eaton, Chatham, & Hale’s Location), Rep. Burroughs (Bartlett, Jackson, Hart’s Location), and Rep. Butler (Northern Carroll County). They are working hard and they need to know that all of us in Carroll County have their backs. If you see them out there in the world, give them a word of encouragement!
