BEDFORD, NH – During the next week and a half, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner will be transitioning his upcoming “Granite State Conversations” tour into a new initiative.
He will now be using the platform to listen to New Hampshire residents, support small businesses, and show appreciation to those on the front lines fighting COVID-19.
During this period, Messner and the campaign will continue to focus on methods to safely interact with voters during this pandemic, such as virtual town halls and advocating for ways for Granite Staters to support local businesses and first responders. The campaign will always be mindful of social distancing recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and other health agencies.
The initiative begins with Messner’s Salem virtual and telephone town hall meeting this Thursday, March 19, which will focus on concerns surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic and its impact on Granite State families and businesses.
“We are all in this together. Our state and federal governments, first responders, and medical professionals are rightfully focusing their efforts on defeating this disease. We stand by them in their efforts. However, it is also important to ensure that we fully understand the significant financial and social impact that the current precautions and restrictions are having on our schools, small businesses, and communities. I want to hear from these individuals and I want to be their advocates as we navigate through this crisis. The first step is for Granite Staters to be given an opportunity for their voices to be heard and our upcoming Salem virtual town hall will be the first step in that process,” says Messner.
Granite State Conversations with Corky Messner which was scheduled for a March 30 launch, will now be reformatted given the new reality facing residents. It will involve on-line communications and other strategies to reach out to New Hampshire voters along with philanthropic stops to help communities.
“Now more than ever, our community is incredibly important,” says Messner, who will be soon announcing more details for stops throughout the state where he will advocate for ways to safely support businesses and those fighting COVID-19.
“From purchasing gift cards to ordering ‘take-out,’ there are many ways we can help our local restaurants and small businesses. We must come together to donate and find ways to support our first responders and medical professionals who are on the frontline fighting this disease. I look forward to doing my part to help,” says Messner.
