Milford, NH - Having been selected as this year's 'Governor for a Day' competition winner, our very own seventh grader, Andrew Flockton is stepping into the Governor's shoes for a day today. It is a rare and unique opportunity for him to experience what it's like to lead, listen, and learn more about political and civic issues that his entire school held an overwhelming clap out for him.
 
Andrew Flockton is a member of the school's student council and student newspaper, the Granite Town Tribune. He was chosen for writing in his essay about his interest in local government, business, and tourism. 
 
A full copy of Andrew’s submission letter can be read below:
 
“If I were Governor for a day, I would want to learn about the state government and learn more about business and tourism in New Hampshire. I am fascinated with the inner workings of government and being Governor for a day would be a good way to expand my knowledge of government. I would like to represent the next generation of New Hampshire citizens by being Governor for a day.
 
I am a member of my middle school’s student council and newspaper club. In my school newspaper, the Granite Town Tribune I have written 2 book reviews, published my school board speech, published an article quoting a UN treaty, and an article on the NH State Flag. I also designed the cover for the issue.
 
I am fascinated in government, specifically at state and local levels and I enjoy campaigning for change which I feel is needed. I have educated myself in the legislative process and I have spoken to 2 state senators, 3 state representatives, your office, the Londonderry, NH Town Council and the New Hampshire House’s ED&A Committee about changing the state flag because I believe that our state flag is identical to other flags, unrecognizable and unrepresentative of New Hampshire. I have also spoken about education. I have sent a Petition for Rulemaking to the NH State Board of Education in connection with a local issue, as well as speaking at a school board meeting against the renovation of a school for students with disabilities that included the mobbing of the students into a high school.
 
I also have an interest in business. I want to learn about business because it fascinates me. I would also like to start a business, (specifically a sole proprietorship) in the field of graphic design soon. I have already freelance designed a business card and a logo. I hope that when I grow up, I will be an inventor.
 
Lastly, I would appreciate it very much if I was considered for the Governor for a Day of the State of New Hampshire."
