Aug. 30 — To the Editor:
It is my honor to endorse two incredibly hard working candidates for State Senator to truly & passionately represent the citizens of their communities.
Ryan Lent, District 24
I have known Ryan Lent since he was a youngster who attended Portsmouth schools & graduated high school with my son. They instantly become a close group of loyal friends, always laughing, enjoying and supporting one another as teammates on and off the athletic fields and still are to this day. Ryan faced adversity much too early in his life when his mom became ill with medical issues. The community rallied behind him and his family and I believe this life changing tragedy molded him into the devoted father, friend, business owner, and youth coach to advocate, fight for and listen to the people of the community he loves.
