For Immediate Release
MANCHESTER, NH July 27, 2021–Manchester Republican mayoral candidate Richard Girard announced his support for Ward 8 candidate for alderman Ed Sapienza. Sapienza is in a three way “winner takes all” special election to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Alderman Michael Porter several weeks ago. Sapienza is a retired Hillsborough County Corrections Officer and former bailiff. He served Active Duty in the United States Army and was elected Registrar of Deeds for Hillsborough County.
In all the years I’ve known Ed, he’s loved our city. It pains him to see how business is done at City Hall and I’m glad to know he’s running. He has my support because I know he’ll ask questions; lots and lots of questions and I know questions are what need to be asked if change is to happen, if bureaucrats and politicians are to be held accountable and government is to be transparent. Ed and I share a passion for the kind of change that will make city government more cost-effective, efficient and responsive for the taxpayer. I am happy to support his campaign and encourage all of my friends and supporters in Ward 8 to do the same.
