Epping Selectman Files Paperwork with Epping Town Clerk, Making Official His Special Election Candidacy for New Hampshire State Representative.
Epping, NH: With election date and candidate filing dates set, Epping Selectman Cody Belanger adds his name to the ballot in the upcoming special election.
"Over the past few weeks, I have spent considerable time talking to friends, family, and most importantly the members of the community about my interest in serving Epping in the New Hampshire House, and I am glad to say that responses that I’ve been getting are great!" Said Belanger.
"It seems that there is a desire to elect a young conservative who cares deeply about the town - someone personally invested in the wellbeing of the community.
Serving Epping on the Board of Selectman and getting involved in local civil service has shed light on the needs of our community. We need a strong voice in Concord who will look out for everyone's best interests.
Some politicians want to go to Concord to advance an agenda, and they often forget the people that elected them. Not me. I’m a little guy fighting for the little guys. I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve at the municipal level and I know there is more we can do together as your State Representative.
I will ensure that Epping is well represented. Epping's voice will be heard at the Capitol. I look forward to holding town halls, and knocking on doors and continuing the conversation about the local issues that we are facing.”
