Coalition of Manchester Republicans Endorse Mayor Joyce Craig for Re-election

Local Republicans join former Manchester GOP Chair Victor Goulet in supporting Joyce Craig for Mayor.

MANCHESTER, NH — Today, over 50 Manchester Republican voters including former Manchester NAACP President Woullard Lett joined former Manchester Republican Party and Concerned Taxpayers of Manchester Chair, Victor Goulet endorsing Mayor Joyce Craig’s re-election campaign. Among the endorsers are community and business leaders and local residents from across the city whose belief in Manchester goes above partisan lines.

“I will be voting for Joyce Craig on November 2nd because she represents the full community rather than a particular party,” said Woullard Lett. “In her time as Mayor we’ve seen the city maintain a steady course despite unprecedented troubled times. I know that Joyce will be the best Mayor to help us move forward.” 

“I’m grateful to have the support of Democrats, Independents and Republicans from across Manchester,” said Mayor Joyce Craig. “As Mayor, I have a proven track record of working across the aisle to make positive change — from making historic investments in infrastructure, passing $43 million in American Rescue Plan funding, increasing the number of police officers on the streets, increasing affordable housing, and more.” 

“Mayor Joyce Craig demonstrates collaborative and non-partisan leadership that has served Manchester well over the last four years,” said former Manchester Republican Party and Concerned Taxpayers of Manchester Chair Victor Goulet. “She led Manchester throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping residents safe, students supported, and businesses open. Her immediate actions developing guidelines, addressing questions, and providing free testing and vaccinations ensured the health and safety of our community. And throughout it all, she practiced sound fiscal management, getting through the pandemic with a $2.3 million city surplus.”

“Through the American Rescue Plan, Joyce is implementing evidence-based programs that will allow Manchester to continue to prevent violent crime, support small business, increase affordable housing, assist seniors and more. She has worked with the Police Department to reduce crime for the 5th year in a row, and brings together residents, non-profits, and business leaders to tackle issues like homelessness in Manchester,” added Goulet. “Mayor Craig is the best person to lead our City, and I am proud to support her for re-election.”
