NH DEM CHAIR CONGRATULATES LONDONDERRY REP
ON HISTORIC SPECIAL ELECTION WIN

CONCORD, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Kathy Sullivan today congratulated John Robinson for becoming the first Democrat to be elected State Representative from Londonderry since 1912.

Robinson, who was elected in a special election on Tuesday January 24 to represent Londonderry and Auburn, will become the 151st Democrat in the New Hampshire House of Representatives.

"This was a historic election in Londonderry and a key milestone for Democrats in Concord," said Sullivan.

"John won because he was clear about his goals: improving education, passing property tax relief, and protecting the most vulnerable members of our community, like seniors and children. He won the support of his neighbors in a district that has voted solidly Republican for the past ninety-four years, and his victory is one more sign that the people of New Hampshire are looking for elected officials that put progress over partisanship."

"I congratulate John for his hard work and commitment to the people of his district. I also congratulate House Democratic Leader Jim Craig, Governor John Lynch, and the other Democrats who helped John win this campaign."

Robinson, a local writer and New Hampshire native, has lived in Londonderry since 1997 with his wife Karen and four children. He volunteers for the Londonderry School District's radio station, which he founded, as well as the Goffstown Rescue Squad and the Air Force Military Affiliate Radio Service.
