MANCHESTER, NH – In recognition of their outstanding work, Senator Hillary Clinton will have breakfast with five of the New Hampshire for Hillary campaign’s top volunteers during her upcoming visit to the Granite State. The volunteers, who come from all corners of New Hampshire, include a small business owner, a college student, a retired attorney, a Vietnam veteran, and a retired painter.
During the month of October, thousands of NH for Hillary volunteers worked in their regional offices, wrote letters to the editor and reached out to tens of thousands of their friends and neighbors through house parties, phone banks and canvasses.
“I am humbled by the support that I have throughout New Hampshire,” said Senator Clinton. “These exceptional volunteers will help to make my campaign a success and I look forward to talking with them and personally thanking them for their hard work and dedication to my campaign. I believe that together we will make history and bring about the change America needs.”
The five volunteers joining Hillary for breakfast are:
Jennifer Alford, who runs her own catering business in Warren. She and her husband Peter have two sons: one attends the University of New Hampshire; the other is a recent college graduate. Jen is an avid outdoorswoman who enjoys kayaking in the river behind her home, cooking, writing and making phone calls to voters in Hillary’s Plymouth office.
Eliana Fishman, a first year student at Dartmouth College in Hanover. A New York City native, Eliana spent one year working with youth in Washington, DC as part of AmeriCorps before beginning college. She chose to attend college in New Hampshire specifically because of the Presidential Primary and is thrilled to be a part of Senator Clinton’s campaign. Eliana canvasses each weekend and volunteers in Hillary’s Lebanon office regularly during the week.
Ronee (Veronica) Harris, a Meredith resident, who has volunteered almost every day since the campaign opened its Lakes Region office in early September. Ronee worked as attorney for Rhode Island’s Department of Transportation for 17 years before retiring in the Lakes Region. She is always energetic and positive whether she’s making phone calls or canvassing.
Henry Mowatt, a veteran of the Vietnam War. Mowatt, a Concord resident, was a postal employee for two decades. Henry made phone calls to voters almost every day in October, participated with other Concord area Clinton campaign volunteers in the American Cancer Society’s Breast Cancer Walk, and canvassed his own neighborhood. He has become a fixture in Hillary’s Concord office, known to other volunteers for his dedication and humor.
Perry Young, who came to Dover from Queens, NY. He was a member of the District Council 9 Painters and Allied Trades International Union of New York for 33 years. Perry spent virtually every day of the last month phone banking and canvassing for Hillary. When Perry is not volunteering for the campaign, he enjoys cooking, going to the beach, and watching baseball.
