For Immediate Release
MANCHESTER, NH Sept , 2021–The mayoral campaign of Manchester Republican Rich Girard announced the endorsement of long time Hooksett town councilor and school board member Jim Sullivan, today. Sullivan, a Republican, has served multiple terms as town council chair and has also served as chair of the school board.
In announcing the endorsement, Girard said that Sullivan, a graduate of Central High, epitomized public service. “There are those who criticize long serving elected officials. Some merit the criticism, to be sure. However, there are people like Jim Sullivan who truly gain nothing from their service except the satisfaction of making a positive difference in their communities. That’s he’s been reelected to both the town council and school board so many times is a testimony to his ability to stay in tune with his constituency and the service he’s faithfully rendered over the years. Having worked with Jim over the years, I look forward to working with him again and opening new conversations about how our communities can cooperate.”
Statement of support from Jim Sullivan, Hooksett Town Council Chairman and school board member:
I am happy to support Rich Girard for mayor. In getting to know him over the years, I’ve learned that he truly looks for the win-win scenario. I think there’s a lot our communities could accomplish if we had an open dialogue and worked together and I know Rich is the kind of leader that will look to open those discussions. It’s no secret that what happens in Manchester affects what happens in Hooksett and every other town bordering the city. So, knowing Rich as I do, I’m excited to see what discussions will take place between our communities after he’s elected mayor. I encourage all my friends in Manchester to join me in supporting Rich Girard for mayor. Thank you.
