In case you missed it, Ann Kuster missed the NH-2 candidates town hall last night at Dartmouth College in Hanover!
Despite Dartmouth being her alma mater, and Hanover being one of the most Democratic towns in all of New Hampshire, Ann Kuster chose to ignore the requests for her to attend this event and meet with her constituents
The Valley News highlighted Marilinda Garcia’s town hall with this front page article. According to the article:
“State Rep. Marilinda Garcia, R-Salem, called for the United States to take a stronger stance in foreign affairs during a town hall-style meeting held at Dartmouth College on Wednesday evening.”
The article went on to say “In an hour-long discussion with John Bolton, former ambassador to the United Nations, Garcia critiqued the Obama administration’s approaches to Iran’s uranium enrichment program, the threat posed by Ebola, and Russian aggression in the Ukraine. She also urged greater border security.
Garcia’s call for increased engagement overseas reached receptive ears in the warm basement of Dartmouth Hall, as evidenced by standing ovations at the beginning and end of the event and by applause in between.”

We have 3 town halls left, but with just under 3 weeks until Election Day, Ann Kuster is running out of opportunities to meet with her constituents. Our invitation still remains open for Ann Kuster to attend any upcoming town halls, so that she can engage in an open and honest discussion with voters.
The Wall Street Journal published an article on October 13 detailing Marilinda Garcia's appeal with younger, Millennial voters. According to the article:
Marilinda Garcia, a 31-year-old Republican running for a Congress in New Hampshire, echoes many of the same concerns about the economy, education costs and employment opportunities.
“All of that combined has made for a confusing and a little bit frightening situation for millennials in terms of where they will go, what career they will pursue, whether they can buy a home, what their future will be like,” she said.
But Ms. Garcia said that hasn’t necessarily translated into voter apathy. Fellow millennials make up the “heart and soul” of her volunteer campaign staff. “If you are a candidate that resonates with them, if you’re offering a solution or offering a vision they relate to, you’re likely to be successful,” she said.
