To the editor,

In this fall’s election, I will not be a candidate for the New Hampshire House from Carroll District 1 for the towns of Bartlett, Jackson and Hart’s Location.

I do not wish to subject myself and my family to the misleading and slanderous type of campaign that I was subjected to last election. More importantly, I want to be able to spend more time with my family and support my two granddaughters here in the valley and my two granddaughters in Colorado.

I enjoyed the years I represented a number of towns in the valley and am very proud to have helped many people over the years. I will continue to do the best job I can as a Bartlett selectman and look forward to continuing in that role.

I want to give a big thank you to all the folks who have supported and stuck with me over the years and I appreciate all of those who have urged me to run again, however, I must do what I think is best for me and my family and I trust people will understand my decision.

Gene G. Chandler
