Steve Marchand Grafton Senate District 1

Wednesday, September 20,
Littleton Senior Center@5.30 pm, Zoom @6pm

The Grafton and Coös County Democratic Committees, together with the Northern Grafton County Dems, are jointly sponsoring a hybrid meeting on September 20 to focus on the Senate District 1 seat. 

Our guest speaker will be Steve Marchand of Move the Goalposts, doing an analysis of the 2022 results and what they mean for Democratic prospects to flip that seat to Blue next year, similar to the kind of analysis he did earlier this summer for the NH House districts in Grafton County.

The program will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and you can attend in person at the Littleton Senior Center or via Zoom.  Registration details for in-person and Zoom coming next week.

Broadband Expansion in Northern Grafton

Residents of Bethlehem, Easton, Franconia, Littleton and Sugar Hill get ready!

The New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs created the Office of Broadband Initiatives in preparation for millions of federal funding that would be coming to New Hampshire for broadband expansion and adoption.

In its second round of payouts, Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has provided more funding in New Hampshire.  Residents of the Grafton County towns listed above can choose an internet connection through fiber. There is no installation cost, saving homeowners as much as $10,000!

Click on the Fidium link below to find your town’s webpage. Residents can preorder as well as see product/pricing information. If you live in one of the listed towns you can apply right now. This is a one-time opportunity to not have to pay installation fees.

Guns and Schools!

Wednesday, September 13 @7 pm

Back to school season is upon us. Parents and teachers have bought school supplies, kids are finding out which classroom they will be in, and we are all excited for the possibilities a new school year brings.

Unfortunately, back to school season also comes with real fears about school safety, especially the looming threat of gun violence in our classrooms. 

Send letter to your legislator and ask them what they plan to do about community gun violence: http://act.granitestateprogress.org/cms/thanks/tell-your-lawmaker-guns-have-no-place-nh-public-schools?action_id=37553&akid=2428.15144._4Zhyw&ar=1&rd=1&taf=1
