BEDFORD, NH - State Senator Andy Sanborn, candidate for re-election in the 9th District, announced today that his campaign has reached over 1,300 households and plans to reach 5,000 before the September 11th primary by going door to door on motorized scooters.
"From Bedford to Richmond, residents tell me that I am the first politician to ever stand at their door step and introduce myself," Sen. Sanborn said. "They have been incredibly appreciative of my effort and supportive of my candidacy because they know that I am out there every day, working for their vote. To me, it is so important to actually meet someone face to face and have a direct conversation. The scooters are efficient, economical, and a lot of fun, and they are enabling us to meet many more people than we would be able to traveling by foot or car."
Sen. Sanborn's campaign literature includes his personal cell phone number and email address so that voters can reach him directly. "One of the reasons I ran for office in the first place was because I thought our representatives in Concord had lost touch with their constituents," Sen. Sanborn stated. "I want the citizens of the 9th District to know that, as their state senator, I will be accountable and accessible to them, and that if they need to reach me for any reason, they can."
The new 9th Senate District includes 14 towns: Bedford, Dublin, Fitzwilliam, Greenfield, Hancock, Jaffrey, Lyndeborough, Mont Vernon, New Boston, Peterborough, Richmond, Sharon, Temple, and Troy.
