Representative Bob Wheeler, Candidate for State Senate,District 20, was joined by Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta twice this week in his door to door campaigning efforts. The two visited various neighborhoods on Manchester’s West side and visited with residents. Guinta took the opportunity to reiterate his support for Wheeler, and the need for a true tax and crime fighter representing the District in the Senate.

“Time and Time again, over the course of his many years of public service, Bob Wheeler has displayed a strong commitment to fiscal responsibility and safer neighborhoods,” Guinta said. “The people of Manchester’s Westside and Downtown need Bob Wheeler in the State Senate fighting any income or sales tax and securing the crime fighting resources so important to our local law enforcement efforts”

Earlier this month, Bob Wheeler pledged to be an advocate for Manchester and Goffstown in Concord, fighting to secure greater crime fighting resources from the State. Wheeler, who was recently responsible for adding fourteen new state troopers while still balancing the budget, is also working with the City of Manchester to secure a location for a second police substation on Manchester’s Westside.

“I am very excited about the level of support that Mayor Guinta and has given to my candidacy,” Wheeler remarked. “The Mayor understands that in order to keep taxes low and rid our neighborhoods of violent crime, words must be backed up with real action. This is true on the local and state level. When the voters match up my record on these issues with the record of my opponent, it should become very clear that I am the candidate committed to finding real solutions.”

Bob Wheeler is a small business owner who has dedicated over 30 years of his life to public service. He is a former Chairman of both the Goffstown Board of Selectmen and Budget Committee, as well as, Majority Leader of the New Hampshire House of Representatives.
