MANCHESTER, N.H. – Election Day is still several months away, but Victoria Sullivan’s team is ready to go as campaign season looms.
On Saturday, the challenger to incumbent Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig opened her campaign office to the public in an event replete with local elected officials and supporters.
The office, located at 62 Lowell St. in the building across from the Red Arrow Diner, had been used by the campaign for several weeks prior to the grand opening event.
Sullivan, a former state representative and Assistant Majority Leader in Concord, was pleased with the turnout at the event and is also happy with the progress her campaign has made so far.
“I think we’re doing a great job; I don’t think anybody would be this invested if it wasn’t a worthwhile campaign,” she said. “We’re out talking to people every day. We talk to so many people who realize the city isn’t going in the right direction and they want to be part of the solutions.”
Ward 3 Resident Richard D. Irving was one of the supporters on hand at the event, after knocking on approximately two dozen doors for Sullivan so far during the campaign.
Irving seeks to knock on several hundred more doors for Sullivan over the fall and also hopes that the fellow Sullivan supporters he met on Saturday will grow in number.
“With all the supporters and volunteers, we’re going to help Victoria win against Joyce Craig,” said Irving. “We expect more supporters in our cause, I just hope Victoria can win. With Joyce Craig having so much money, we need more for Victoria. (Victoria) is the type of person we need for this city to make it a better community.”
