#Farmington Local Candidates Meet & Greet Social, August 11th, 4-6PM- Go & Meet Anne Grassie

Great news! Local Dem candidates will be at a Farmington Democrats Meet & Greet  Social on August 11th, from 4-6PM. The event will be hosted at the Farmington House of Pizza lower level event room. You can get the address and directions here. We will have a variety of appetizers and there will be a cash bar open for the event. This brings a great service to us as voters and as a community as it is one of the few chances to hear local candidates before voting day. 
Manny Krasner will be available to speak as will Sylvia Arcouette. Both are running for the two New Hampshire State Representative seats for the Farmington community. This is Manny's first run for this position, but he is no stranger to the political landscape. Manny has been an attorney in Farmington since 1976, and served as assistant Strafford County Attorney from 1978 - 1981, and also as Farmington Town Moderator. Manny believes in finding practical solutions to our real problems. Sylvia almost had the position last term, falling short by just 25 votes! Sylvia currently serves on the Farmington Budget Committee and would like to bring more economic, educational, and recreational  opportunities for the families of Farmington. Online Manny can be found at Krasner 4 State Representative. Sylvia can be found online at Sylvia Arcouette on Twitter. Both will have more information and avenues to contact them online soon.


Anne Grassie, of Rochester, running for our New Hampshire  Senate seat, will also be attending and speaking to our guests. Anne is a grandmother of 18 grandchildren and has over three decades’ experience in public service and childcare work. Anne has spent a lifetime working hard to better the lives of children and families in New Hampshire. Anne knows that strong families are the cornerstone of strong communities, and will fight for workforce development, child care access, and education in order to keep our community strong. Anne can be found online on Facebook @AnneGrassieforNH and on Twitter @AnneGrassie.
Also invited is candidate for Executive Council District 2, incumbent Andru Volinsky. Andru believes that the strengthening of our democracy resides in strong public schools, treating healthcare as a human right, protecting our environment and fighting climate change, and reducing the income inequality in our state by providing fair wages. Andru can be found online at www.volinskynh.com.
All candidates will be available for questions and will make brief statements.  The atmosphere will be relaxed and conducive to folks arriving and departing at any time between the 2 hours of the event.  The Farmington Democrats will provide a variety of appetizers for those in attendance, and there will be a cash bar available. We hope that this event will allow Farmington voters to meet their candidates, find out what they are all about, and what they would like to accomplish if elected.  It is one of the few chances residents have to hear from their local candidates before election day in November.
Mark your calendars for the date and plan to join us for a fun evening catching up with each other and learning new things about all our candidates!
