ROUNDUP: NHDP Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner Makes Headlines
In case you missed it, on Saturday, the New Hampshire Democratic Party hosted our annual Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner. Over 750 Granite Staters from the North Country to the Seacoast joined our federal delegation, state legislative leaders, and special guest Pete Buttigieg to help elect Democrats up and down the ballot this November.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg told a sold-out fundraising dinner of 700 Democrats Saturday that the midterm elections present an opportunity to change the future and Republicans have given everyone the most important reason to get out and vote on Nov. 8.
With the election 44 days away, issues of abortion rights and education funding are taking center stage, and Democrats who want to retake the New Hampshire House, Senate, and Executive Council and retain all four congressional seats were all at the event urging the faithful to get out and mobilize the vote.
The NHDP presented its emerging leader award to Strafford County Sheriff Mark Brave. State Rep. Manny Espitia, D-Nashua won the Kathy Sullivan Leadership Award. Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess won the FDR Award and the Eleanor Roosevelt Award was given this year to State Rep. Susan Almy, D-Lebanon.

Over 750 attendees attended the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner at the Hilton Manchester Doubletree Hotel on Saturday evening, headlined by U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg.
“What makes America great is our never ending journey to become greater and our refusal to settle for things as they are, to let this country sit where it has been as if it could go no further, but rather to demand they we continue the constant betterment and growth that is written into the very structure of our Constitution,” said Buttigieg. “That’s why I’m prouder than ever to be at your side — a Democrat — in every possible sense of the term. So let’s get after it and work these next 45 days like we never have before!”
The New Hampshire Democratic Party also honored Nashua State Representative Manny Espitia, Strafford County Mark Brave, Lebanon State Representative Susan Almy and Nashua Mayor Jim Donchess.
