“I encourage anyone to vote for Andy Sanborn. At a recent meeting to inform the Hillsborough area about what their small businesses were facing with the legislation in Concord regarding the LLC tax, Andy spoke for over an hour, leading the audience through what was happening point by point. No one was bored. Instead, what people received was a very informative and educational speech about what was happening. He was articulate and able to educate without throwing firebombs about what others were doing. This is a mark of a leader who will pull New Hampshire residents together instead of tearing them apart like so many politicians are bent on doing. Andy and his wife Laurie, have built their businesses from the ground up and now provide jobs to others, something that we need desperately today and few politicians have done. Vote for Andy and you can sleep more soundly knowing you have put a principled leader into the New Hampshire Senate.”
