Where were lawmakers?

To the Editor: The headline on the Saturday, May 18, 2019 New Hampshire Union Leader reads, “Salute from a grateful state.”

The article stated New Hampshire honored its fallen members of law enforcement during the 27th annual ceremony on the grounds of the State House.

Twenty-seven years!

This is an annual event that is planned well in advance so calendars can be marked and attendance can be ensured. Gov. Chris Sununu gave the keynote address.

Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan along with Congressmen Annie Kuster and Chris Pappas were not in attendance. This is a New Hampshire event recognizing New Hampshire fallen officers.

These fallen officers were representing New Hampshire. Where were our elected New Hampshire representatives?
