Senator Maggie Hassan this morning joined Mayor Andrew Hosmer for a downtown walk in Laconia to celebrate the start of Bike Week.
“After filing for re-election yesterday, I can’t think of a better place to visit than Laconia during Bike Week. This cherished New Hampshire tradition not only brings the community together, but it also helps strengthen the local economy,” said Senator Hassan. “It was great to have the opportunity to speak with small businesses during this busy time about the priorities that matter to them and my work to help strengthen New Hampshire’s workforce and grow our economy. I will continue pushing for solutions to help ensure that small businesses and families across the Lakes Region can thrive.”
“As a State Senator and Mayor, I have worked hand-in-hand with Senator Hassan and seen up close her deep commitment to delivering for New Hampshire families,” said Mayor Hosmer. “From supporting small business, to combating the opioid crisis, to expanding access to health care, Senator Hassan has gotten results for Laconia and communities across our state. Laconia and New Hampshire need bipartisan problem solvers like Maggie Hassan in Washington.”
Laconia is the latest campaign stop for Senator Hassan. She was recently in the North Country to meet with community leaders in Berlin, before filing for re-election and rallying with supporters in Concord. Senator Hassan also made campaign stops in Peterborough and Keene yesterday.
Senator Hassan has been a champion for Laconia and the Lakes Region. A few weeks ago, Senator Hassan was in Manchester for the announcement of a federal grant that was awarded to the New Hampshire Department of Justice to expand an innovative and effective prevention and treatment program for substance use disorder that was started by the Laconia Police Officer Eric Adams. In 2020, Senator Hassan hosted Officer Adams as her guest of honor for the State of the Union to highlight his innovative approach to the substance misuse crisis, which prioritizes meeting people where they are to help them get the treatment and support that they need. Additionally, the Laconia airport received federal funding to help with their expansion as part of the bipartisan infrastructure law that Senator Hassan helped negotiate.
