Letters to the


Jenn Alford-Teaster met with me while she was running in 2018 and just listened to my concerns and what I was worried about as a school board member, and she asked how those in Concord would be able to help. She has been in touch many times since. That is why I support her candidacy for New Hampshire Senate District 8.

Jenn Alford-Teaster has what it takes — the enthusiasm, motivation, background and a well-rounded platform — to be successful in the Senate and to beneficially serve the residents of District 8 and all of New Hampshire.

Jenn Alford-Teaster...knows personally what it is like to struggle, to have to fight for everything in a system that doesn’t always work for everyone. This is why we can trust that she has our best interests at heart, and why we should be committed to voting for her on Nov. 3.

This is my first letter to a newspaper on behalf of a political candidate. I have, however, been so impressed with Jenn Alford-Teaster that I feel compelled to support her publicly.

I’m supporting Jenn Alford-Teaster in the upcoming election because she will put people first if she is elected to the state Senate. She understands what it is like to struggle growing up in New Hampshire and can relate to working parents who face difficult decisions in sending their children back to school...She has my vote!

Dean Dorman, Keene Sentinel

As a retired educator, I am always warmed by the success of former students. Jenn is a perfect example of the payback of a strong public school education. She is the product of a quality education from a strong New Hampshire public school system. She will fight for equity and quality in our public schools.

I’ve known Jenn Alford-Teaster for more than 10 years, and know her as a caring, thoughtful, and well-informed person. While some entering politics do so with a highly partisan attitude, I see Jenn entering the political scene because her first instinct is to help people, solve problems, and make a difference.

Supporting Alford-Teaster for New Hampshire Senate

State Senator Ruth Ward and her campaign handlers have launched an unfounded and scurrilous attack on her opponent, Jenn Alford-Teaster.  Senator Ward claims that Jenn “wants to bring the Northern Pass project back form the dead” as some sort of Halloween trick.  Let’s be clear - Jenn Alford-Teaster has never supported the Northern Pass project and any statement to the contrary is untrue.  The Northern Pass project was withdrawn by Eversource in 2019 in the face of widespread and intense public opposition and a unanimous New Hampshire Supreme Court decision that upheld the rejection of the project by the Site Evaluation Committee.

Alford-Teaster is a public health scientist and has the expertise to make sure our district recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects. She is a tireless advocate for our rural communities, and I know that if she is elected to the Senate she will fight for all residents of District 8.

Voters in state Senate District 8 have a real choice to vote for this year: Jenn Alford-Teaster...Jenn is smart, compassionate, and incredibly hard-working. She worked her way out of poverty and understands the system from the ground up. She will work across party lines to improve life in our district. She gets out and talks to people. She listens.

Glynis Hart, Concord Monitor

I’ve been looking at Jenn Alford-Teaster, the Democrat running in N.H. Senate District 8. Jenn doesn’t fit the mold... She drives a pickup. She worshiped locally until it went virtual. She grew up poor. She is a gun owner....I hope we will elect sensible moderate people to represent us all up and down the ballot. Jenn has my vote.

David Erikson, Concord Monitor

Jenn Alford-Teaster puts people first. That’s why I’m proud to support her campaign for New Hampshire state Senate in District 8. 

Having access to good health care, great public schools and jobs that pay the bills isn’t asking too much. Alford-Teaster will fight for them, and for us.

I can’t wait to vote for Jenn Alford-Teaster Nov. 3. Please join me. We’re worth it.

Laura Kiritsy, Valley News

As the owner of a medium-sized Manchester business who lives in Senate District 8, I will proudly cast my vote for Jenn Alford-Teastor for state Senate on Nov. 3.

When COVID hit, we, like many businesses, felt overwhelmed and scared for our employees. The first person we turned to was Jenn. 

Christine Fletcher, Concord Monitor

 Jenn has impressive credentials, a young family, boundless energy, and a personal interest in everyone she meets. Her thoughtful and creative policy positions support New Hampshire families. We don’t want more of the same in 2020, we want someone who will represent all of the people in our district.
