Tuftonboro’s incumbent state representative Glenn Cordelli and challengers Gary Chehames (also from Tuftonboro) and Paul Puntieri (of Moultonborough) will be attending a candidates’ forum at the Moultonborough Lions Club on Friday, October 21, from 6:30 to 8:30.
When asked about the forum, Cordelli said,
I am approaching 1,000 doors that I have knocked on in this campaign. I believe it is important for candidates to get out and talk to people so I look forward to a positive discussion of the issues and responding to the negative attacks.
Chehames, speaking for himself and Punturieri, released the following statement:
Gary Chehames and Paul Punturieri are candidates for the two District 4 representative seats open in the NH House. In the past years, legislating solely by ideology has led to serious consequences for our District 4, New Hampshire, and Carroll County. Gary and Paul believe the benchmark for making legislative decisions should be based upon the needs of the citizens they will be elected to represent. To keep New Hampshire moving forward, they will accomplish this by being reasonable, collaborative, and using a common sense approach to governance. Feel free to contact Gary at Chehames@gmail.com and Paul at PPunturieri@yahoo.com for more information.
The Lions Club is located on 139 Old Route 109 in Moultonborough, NH.
