I cannot thank you enough for taking the time out of your busy schedules and coming out to vote on September 11. I truly appreciate the faith and confidence that you have placed in me by nominating me for State Representative for our Towns. I am both humbled and strengthened by your support.
Your vote this past Tuesday, on a day of memorial for thousands of Americans, reminds me that we as Americans are most blessed to have the freedoms we have. It was fitting and appropriate that we each had the opportunity to use our freedom by voting on the 11th anniversary of the day our very freedom was shaken and thousands of Americans lost their lives.
On November 6, every American will be voting for the future of our country with the election of a new president; and I cannot express how grateful and humbled I am that my name will appear on the same ballot as our next president.
I wish to thank everyone for their support in the Primary. Your donations of time and money, phone calls and letters, your holding of signs and words of encouragement, all worked to allow me the opportunity to serve you, as one of your State Representatives. However, the “work” is not yet over. We have less than two months before the general election to decide who will be our next State Representatives. Once again, I humbly ask for your support in any way that you may be able to assist my campaign.
This past Election Day, we all realized how much every vote counts when my good friend and State Representative, David Welch, was not re-nominated to a post where he has served our communities for many years. This is not the result that I had wanted or anticipated. Representative Welch has served this district for over twenty-eight years in a fashion that I emulate and hope to follow. David is someone I look up to and had been hoping to represent our towns with, side by side. Thank you David for your service!
As we held signs in Hampstead and Kingston and observed the American Flag being lowered to half-staff, I know that we all recognized how very precious our lives and our freedom are. We are the most fortunate people on Earth, with the ability to let our representative know what is on our collective minds. I promise that I am and will continue to be open to all of your concerns and opinions.
As your next State Representative I will bring your voice and concerns to Concord. I will not pretend to know all the answers, but I will represent this district fairly and keep an open mind in my representation of all of the citizens of Hampstead and Kingston with common sense to move us forward.
Thank you again for allowing me the opportunity to move closer to serving you in Concord.
Kevin St. James
