Nashua Mayor joins supporters of McCain

ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain’s presidential exploratory committee today announced that Nashua Mayor Bernard Streeter will support Senator McCain should he decide to seek the presidency.

Mayor Streeter is currently serving in his eighth year as Mayor of Nashua, New Hampshire’s second largest city. Previously, Streeter served thirty years as a member and dean of the New Hampshire Executive Council, representing southwestern New Hampshire.

Appointed by President Ford, Streeter was also a member of the National Health Planning Council. President Reagan later appointed him to the National Advisory Council of the U.S. Public Health Service.

"John McCain is a solid conservative and an American hero," said Mayor Streeter. "I’m proud to stand with John McCain and I am confident that he will continue to receive strong support in New Hampshire."

"We have put together a collection of New Hampshire’s best and most capable leaders, and I am honored and grateful that Mayor Streeter has joined our team," said Senator McCain. "Bernie is an important addition and he will play a lead role in our efforts."
