Bradley and Woods: Two leaders for the Senate
Sen. Jeb Bradley has become something of a star in the state Senate. The Wolfeboro Republican has used his experience in Congress and the Legislature before that to become a leader in a Senate that was filled with bright, accomplished, successful people of both parties. The people of District 3, which covers much of the Lakes Region, have definitely gotten more than their money’s worth from Sen. Bradley.
Jeb Bradley does not use his Senate seat as some sort of glittering title to wear after having become used to the deference often given to members of Congress, where he served two terms. No, he does the heavy lifting that an up-and-coming politician hoping to make a name for himself might do. He makes sure he is always well-informed, and he stays in constant communication with the people of his district. For those reasons, other senators often turn to him for advice and leadership.
If the people of the District 3 were to lose Bradley’s voice in the Senate, they would lose a powerful and effective advocate. They should send him back to continue working on their behalf.
Voters in District 4, which runs from Laconia to Strafford, have their own strong leader in Phyllis Woods. The energetic Republican National Committee member would be a tough advocate for the district, especially when it comes to keeping taxes and spending at reasonable levels. Woods has years of experience in the political arena, and she knows how to play nice with others while sticking to her values.
For improving the state’s economic climate, keeping government power in check, and having a senator who really gets small business issues, the voters would do well to elect Phyllis Woods.
