LEBANON, NH – Continuing to build upon the momentum and grassroots energy of Granite State Democrats this cycle, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley announced today that the New Hampshire Democratic Party will open a coordinated field office in Lebanon on August 7th, and will be joined by candidate for governor Dr. Tom Sherman and fellow Democratic leaders.
“All over the Granite State, Democrats are building the momentum heading into November’s elections that is going to carry us to victory,” said NHDP Chair Ray Buckley. “These new offices are an integral part of our robust organizing program, and will help us turn out Granite State voters and re-elect Senator Hassan and Representatives Kuster, elect Dr. Tom Sherman to the corner office, and win back the majorities in the Executive Council, State Senate, and State House this November!”
The NHDP’s Lebanon office is the sixth field office to open this year, following the openings of offices in Manchester, Nashua, Exeter, Keene, and Laconia.
“There is so much at stake in November, and our grassroots activists are committed to ensuring that we defeat Sununu and elect leaders who are going to fight for Granite Staters. I am excited to officially open this field office in Lebanon to help connect with volunteers and voters in the Upper Valley. Going door to door is how I’ve always found common ground with voters to win elections, and it’s how we are going to win in November,” said Dr. Tom Sherman.
The Lebanon office will serve as the hub for organizing, training, and welcoming volunteers, community members, and grassroots leaders across the region. It will be a space devoted to gathering and talking to Granite Staters in Lebanon directly about Democrats’ commitment to taking on corporate special interests to lower costs for New Hampshire families, protecting reproductive freedom, and ensuring every child has access to a great public school education.
“This year, Democrats up and down the ballot are going to win big by meeting voters where they are and talking with them about the issues that matter most,” said Senator Sue Prentiss. “I am thrilled to see this office opening in my district, and I know that it will be the key to victory all over the Granite State this November.”
Since last year, New Hampshire Democrats have mobilized their superior ground game to defy national trends and win a series of critical victories up and down the ballot. In March, the NHDP helped lead efforts to secure important victories in local elections across the state — defeating anti-education school board candidates and over a dozen warrant articles that would have undermined New Hampshire’s elections, while electing strong Democratic leaders on Town Meeting Day. Following the Dobbs decision out of the US Supreme Court, Granite State Democrats are more fired up than ever to elect pro-choice leaders up and down the ballot.
“Lebanon residents and the entire Upper Valley have seen how the NH GOP has attacked our public schools, reproductive rights, and our voting rights. This new office, in addition to those already open across the state, is just another example of how Democrats are investing in a robust, grassroots field program, which will lead us to victory this November,” said NH House Democratic Victory Campaign Committee Chair State Representative Matt Wilhelm.
The NHDP, and its coordinated campaign arm, Organize NH, will continue to serve as Democrats’ hub for grassroots organizing and voter protection in 2022. The NHDP will work to organize and mobilize Granite Staters in every corner of the state while implementing a sweeping training program to empower local volunteers. The effort will focus on not only re-electing the federal delegation, but also on electing a Democratic Governor and Democratic Majorities in the State Senate, State House, and Executive Council.
