Tri-Dems Meeting Feature, Rep. Jackie Cilley, A Local Hit

Former candidate for Governor, Representative Jackie Cilley was our featured speaker for March. We've had Jackie speak to us many times and  she is always a dynamic speaker with a good sense of humor and this visit was no exception. Yesterday, just before Jackie spoke with us, she was defending a bill she sponsored to establish a living wage in New Hampshire of $14.25.  As you may know, that bill did not pass, but that did not dampen her passion for this bill or her resolve to champion it so that more people in New Hampshire can live with their families above the poverty line and off state assistance, saving the taxpayers money. She also spoke with us about other important issues for this legislative session. She has some great ideas for the future and we were very happy to discuss them with her. Afterward, Milton had their caucus and the rest if us enjoyed the bountiful appetizers and deserts we provided for the event.  We look forward to having Jackie back again in the near future.  She is always a favorite in our group.
