Democratic Values are New Hampshire Values:
Work, Community, and Equality
Welcome to the David Watters for State Senate campaign website
We did it! Tuesday was a great day for Democrats across New Hampshire, and I am grateful to the voters of Senate District 4 for the 55%-45% victory. The message of restoring common sense and civility in Concord resonated across the District, and I will take my commitment to jobs, education, and community values to the state senate in January.
Thanks so much for your support throughout a long and tough campaign against a well-funded and motivated opponent. You held signs, knocked on 7,000 doors, attended house parties, forums, and debates, offered advice and expertise, and made the crucial financial contributions so the campaign could get a winning message to the voters. Most importantly, it meant a great deal to me personally to know that people were committed to the values of the campaign so we were in this fight together. This election was truly a team effort, from President Obama, Senator Shaheen, and Carol Shea-Porter to the candidates for state representative. Working closely with state representative candidates across the district, I saw the extraordinary quality of those who stepped up to serve the people by taking the House back for the Democrats.
There are so many people to thank, and I hope to speak with each of you personally as the occasion arises in the next few weeks, but I want to mention thank here Duncan Fleming, my campaign manager, Carole Appel, campaign treasurer, all the folks at Obama for America, and my colleagues in organized labor. I can’t say enough about the extraordinary work of Duncan Fleming, and I know all of you will join me in thanking him for his commitment to Democratic values.
The work of the state senate is beginning, and I will report soon on committee assignments and legislation filed. The Democratic senate caucus and Governor-elect Hassan are committed to bipartisan efforts to focus on jobs and education, so I believe we will have a new spirit of cooperation in Concord.
I will report to you periodically, and please call or email, since it is essential to have your advice on the issues facing the District and the state.
Thank you again for your support. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of New Hampshire.
