Bosse Back in Berlin

Makes third trip to North Country in six weeks

(Berlin) Hillsboro Republican Grant Bosse on Thursday returned to Berlin, speaking to the Androscoggin Valley Republican Committee at White Mountains Community College. Grant made a brief statement outlining his priorities, then took questions for nearly an hour. Questions ranged from the economy to immigration to the war against Islamic Fascism. Bosse shared his thoughts on how to best revive the North Country economy.

“This part of New Hampshire hasn’t participated in the economic growth America has seen in the last six or seven years,” said Bosse. “Ultimately Congress can’t create jobs in rural New Hampshire, but we can get Congress out of the way. Coos County faces unique challenges, but also has unique advantages.”

Bosse recently completed five years on the staff of U.S. Senator John Sununu, specializing in energy policy. He told the crowd power transmission is a key hurdle for creating jobs.

“We’re in the middle of one of the world’s great natural forests, we have a source of renewable energy all around us. We need to get Congress out of the way so we can build new power lines and bring jobs to rural New Hampshire,” Bosse continued. “But we don’t have the power lines to transmit that power where it needs to go. That discourages businesses from locating here.”

The Androscoggin Valley Republican Committee will next meet on May 8th at White Mountains Community College. Bosse will be back in Berlin on April 24th for the city’s Brewtopia event. Last night marked Bosse’s third visit to Berlin in the last six weeks. For more information on Bosse’s campaign, go to
