Local Candidates Successful November 6!
Locally, NH Rep. Bob Perry of Evans Mountain Road in Strafford was re-elected to his fourth term in the New Hampshire Legislature representing the towns of Strafford and New Durham. The Strafford Town Democrats thank him for running and for continuing to do an excellent job representing the interests of the people of Strafford at the State House in Concord.
Kudos also goes out to Strafford Resident Dennis Vachon for his election as Strafford County Register of Deeds. He will be an asset to the county and town in his new county post.
