Tammy Simmons is chairperson of the Manchester Republican Committee, and last evening, she, together with her partner, Dan Garthwaite, threw quite the p-a-r-t-a-y in honor of Victoria Sullivan, candidate for mayor of Manchester.
Approximately 80-100 people gathered on their front lawn on Varney Street to meet and mingle with candidates running for local elections. Even the Governor made an appearance, giving a great speech, and graciously staying for several rounds of pics.
I am running for local school charter commission this Fall, and it was a pleasure to meet Ward 10 and 11 voters. Two real conversations: “I voted for you last time, but it’s great to finally put a face to a name,” and “I *didn’t* vote for you last time, but now that I’ve met you, I definitely will!” I look forward to meeting more constituents in the coming months, and remember, I’ll be back in 2020 for my Senate seat!
