The political season in New Hampshire is in hyper-drive due to our status as the first primary in the nation. As we approach the general election. I am occasionally asked who the Manchester NAACP favors in one political race or the other or who we prefer from among the various political parties. My response is always the same. The NAACP locally and nationally recognizes that we do not have permanent political friends or political enemies, only permanent political interests. We do not engage in partisan politics because our membership reflects the political spectrum. Further, our tax status prohibits it and our community has been under attack regardless of the party in office or the politician in power.
We do not play favorites with the politicians running for office or serving in office. Our favorites are the people we serve and the interests whom we promote. Please join us as we fight for people of color, especially but voting your conscience during this critical election season.
