Epping Selectmen Cody Belanger released the following statement welcoming failed Congressional candidate Naomi Andrews to the State Representative Special Election race:
"This past week Democrats put forward former failed congressional candidate Naomi Andrews. A top Democrat operative and former Chief of Staff for failed Congresswomen Carol Shea-Porter who doesn’t have NH’s interests and particularly Epping’s interests at the forefront of her mind. Where has she been?
There have been many issues surrounding Epping’s future, and Naomi has been absent. Someone who hasn’t tweeted since the November Election last year, or someone who has been absent from Epping focusing on her career as a politician.
People like Naomi Andrews give people like me a bad name, those local leaders wanting to actually make a difference because the system failed them.
Naomi has been in DC, where she lives not in Epping. It’s obvious what the Democrats are trying to do, and I will run an honest campaign and will work harder than any other candidate in this election because I believe in a true grassroots campaign.
Ray Buckley and the NH Democrats want to focus on advancing their agenda by purchasing this seat. I’m confident that Epping will see through this nonsense and send someone to Concord who cares about Epping’s values and won’t foist their national agenda upon the voters.
I am the only candidate who has worked in a bipartisan fashion and the Democrats should be afraid. This isn’t about a national agenda, it’s about the people of Epping. And I’m the only candidate who will put aside any party platform and work with the people"
A primary Election date of August 20th, 2019 and a General Election date of October 8th, 2019 has been set for the Rockingham 9th State Representative seat Special Election. Democrat Rep. Mark Vallone currently occupies the other Rockingham 9 State Representative seat in this multi-member district.
