Ed is a good guy, even if he is a lawyer (just like Andrew Hosmer). Ed really is one of those folks that will literally give you his shirt off his back. From what I recall, he doesn’t seem to charge much for his legal services — though it is possible he felt sorry for me (which is easy to do) and kind of charged me just a notch above pro bono. He is a good lawyer and as such very busy.

To be fair we heard about it in a roundabout, but still perfectly valid, way. Deanna and the kids were supposed to be attending yet another pool party birthday celebration there this month. Then Deanna got an e-mail saying that it had to be rescheduled because the Inn had been sold and the closing date for the sale corresponded with the day for the party — and that the Inn was going to be closed that day. That was what we heard. I noticed today that there appears to be a lot of ‘interest’ in the Inn. So I too did a search this morning and found this. Yes, the price appears to have been lowered. I thought I had seen it around the $725K mark. I don’t know. My interest is cursory at best.

The first time I met Andrew Hosmer was at this year’s Laconia Multicultural Day when he was doing the rounds. We chatted briefly and I was hugely impressed. I introduced him to a ‘friend’ from Gilford who had lost his job at Hannaford’s. Andrew spent a lot of time talking with him. I decided that I was going to follow Andrew. I was not disappointed. Then I found out that my friend Lisa DiMartino, who also just won a seat in the NH house, was acting as Andrew’s fiscal agent. For me the deal was done. I was not just going to follow Andrew, I was going to root for him though Alton (where we live) is outside of his District 7. I am glad I did. Andrew has done all of us PROUD! Bravo. This continues to be a great, great, wonderful week for me, the family, Alton, NH, THE COUNTRY and the World. I am so happy and proud. Having folks like Lisa and Andrew in Concord is so good for the 47% — which includes us.


Andrew Hosmer introduced Dr. Jill Biden when she visited Laconia, NH on October 26, 2012.

Though I knew of his company, I only knew of Andrew’s opponent from what I had read in the media, as of the September primary race. I was amazed. For there to be so much smoke around him had to mean that something was smoldering. I was worried for Andrew. His opponent, in terms of signage and letters to the Laconia Daily Sun, seemed to be on a tear.

I had a brief, private chat with Andrew after the Jill Biden visit. He assured me that he was ‘looking good. Told me not to worry. But, I still worried. I counted signs on election day as I was in and around Gilford and Laconia doing my stuff for Obama. His opponent definitely won the sign contest. But, as with Obama, this election proved that signs means NADA. If anything it was those that had the least signs that won. I am so delighted. I had 4 Obama signs stolen. But, that is OK. Obama won. Romney lost. Same with Andrew. Andrew won. The signs lost.

I saw his opponents truck, emblazoned with the name of his company, illegally parked at the Gilford voting station. Yes, I have a picture of it — but I didn’t post it because I did not want to give his company any free publicity. To me seeing his truck illegally parked said it all. I wanted Andrew to win.

Andrew won. Life is good.

I can add another ‘I WON’ to my list. How great is that?
