Jon Kiper is the epitome of the everyday blue-collar worker. He deeply understands the intricacies of our communities and the importance of effective zoning laws. His approachable style of leadership—far removed from the typical political maneuvering—combined with his passion for community betterment is what distinguishes Jon among other candidates for governor. Jon holds a genuine interest in the welfare of New Hampshire, and I believe that he is the ideal candidate.

Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Jon and a number of other local leaders at his own restaurant in Newmarket. Over burgers and fries, we engaged in a refreshingly sincere discussion about the future of New Hampshire—in particular, the housing crisis—and together we explored tangible solutions to enhance our state. It’s community gatherings like these that can restore faith in NH politics.

Jon’s commitment to understanding and addressing the needs of our community, coupled with his hands-on leadership, convinces me that he is the governor NH needs. I respect all of the Democrats running for governor, however, this is not just about politics. For me, this is about making real, positive change for our communities and incorporating a 21st-century problem-solving strategy. I wholeheartedly endorse Jon Kiper for governor, and I am confident in his ability to lead NH toward a brighter, more productive future.
