His company was first rate in every respect. His commitment to the city and its improvement were unquestionable and benefited many. The city party did well under his leadership and I am honored to have his support.”

Statement of support from former MRC Chairman Jerry Thibodeau:

I’ve known and worked with Rich Girard for many years, including during my time as Manchester City Republican Committee Chairman in 2006 and 2007. He knows the city, its issues and government as well as anybody I know.

His experience coupled with a unique determination to get things done is exactly what Manchester needs at this time. He has my full support in his campaign for mayor.
