You’ll Want to Hear This Month’s Speakers!

Monday, October 1st from 6:30-8:30PM
McAllaster Room, Lower Level of the Bedford Library

Guest Speakers:
Brendan Summers
Senior Advisor, Let America Vote
Let America Vote is a political action organization founded by former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander in February 2017. Its mission is to end voter suppression across the country. Let America Vote chose New Hampshire as one of five states in which they operate a field office in 2018 to help elect state and local candidates who support voting rights.

Zandra Rice Hawkins
Executive Director, Granite State Progress
Topic: The Free State Project
The Free State Project’s stated purpose is to move to New Hampshire, take over state government, and create a libertarian ideal of utopia. Over 20,000 libertarians signed a letter of intent to move, with thousands of early movers already in-state. Granite State Progress and a working group of community members have tracked the influence and structure of the Free State Project over the years, from their attempts to slash public services to their vast social network that helps identify housing, jobs, and political opportunities for movers. Come learn what it is about, how they operate, and what you can do to protect your community from their extreme tactics and ideology.

Refreshments Will Be Served

Democratic Write-In Candidate!

Write-In Bill Barry for Hillsborough County Sheriff

Bill Barry of Manchester has recently stepped forward to be the Democratic candidate for Hillsborough County Sheriff. In order for him to be on the ballot for the November 6 elections, we need to write him in this coming Tuesday, September 11, Primary Day.

After you take a Democratic ballot on Tuesday, in the section for “Sheriff” write-in Bill Barry in the line marked “WRITE-IN” and then fill in the little bubble to the right.

If you would like to help with visibility outside the polls on Tuesday, just show up and look for our Democratic State Representative candidates, other volunteers, and the signs. You should see our crew on the right side as you enter the high school from the back entrance. There will be extra signs there to hold. The more the merrier; the large the group, the better the visibility! Consider hanging out for an hour or so before or after you vote. Thanks!
