MANCHESTER - Senator John Sununu announced today that 862 women have signed up as Women For Sununu. This coalition, which is chaired by Sharon Sykas, Jane Lane, Jen Wrobleski, and Shirley Ganem, is one of the largest women's coalitions ever assembled for a candidate running for public office in New Hampshire.
Shirley Ganem, a Democrat and former selectwoman from Wolfeboro, expressed her unwavering support for Sununu. "Unlike his opponent, John Sununu has never shied away from the tough issues, and his decisive leadership is invaluable to this state. I'm voting for John this year, because he is an honest and independent voice in the U.S. Senate, and we need to send him back."
"Politicians come and go, but John Sununu is a steady and independent leader for our state in the U.S. Senate. His work on behalf of the voters of New Hampshire is unmatched by any other," said Jane Lane, a long time civic leader from Keene who worked for former Congressman Charles F. Bass and is an officer with the National Federation of Republican Women.
"Senator Sununu has been an effective voice on issues important to New Hampshire. From cosponsoring and passing renewable alternative energy tax credits, to passing the Internet access tax ban and being a strong voice for community health centers, Senator Sununu has never hesitated to do what is best for the interest of Granite Staters," said Jen Wrobleski, Former Executive Director of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee.
"I am proud to support Senator Sununu because of his willingness to listen to the people of New Hampshire," said Sharon Sykas, Former President of the New Hampshire Federated Republican Women. "John Sununu has led on issues important to women, including his successful efforts to extend the eligibility of Women's Business Centers right here in the Granite State."
Senator Sununu applauded the leadership of these respected women and discussed his gratitude for their support and friendship.
"I am honored to have the backing of this remarkable group of women," said Senator John Sununu. "In the Senate, I have worked to secure the Women's Business Center in Portsmouth, championed community health centers across the Granite State, and worked to keep taxes low for New Hampshire families."
