Super 603 Day in Strafford County: Coffee, Pizza & Conversations
It was another Super 603 Day for Gov. Chris Sununu on Thursday.
He spent the day touring a Seacoast region county.
Sununu has spent random days hitting small businesses and attractions in a particular county and posting pictures and video on his Twitter account. Thursday it was Strafford County's turn which started with a stop at celebrity chef Bobby Marcotte's Durham restaurant Rise + Grind.
"He met with the Durham Fire Department, just kinda stopped by, checked us out, his staff spoke highly of us. It was about a half-hour drinking coffee and mulling it over," Marcotte told Seacoast Current. "It was nice to see him out visiting small businesses."
Marcotte said they're both supporters of Best Buddies, which offers one-to-one friendship and leadership development for individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The governor apparently drank a lot of coffee during his Strafford County tour as he was first customer of the day at Aroma Joe's Coffee in Durham. He also explained the purpose of Super 603 Day.
"Just talking to a lot of business owners, a lot of families about what is going on. What they're predicting for this coming fall and what they need to see whether it's work force or kids going back to school. This is just the best way to get out and find out what's happening across the state," Sununu said.
Sununu's other stops included the Powder Mill Hatchery, the NH Farm Museum in Milton, Calef's Country Store in Barrington, Lickee's & Chewy's Candies & Creamery and the Children's Museum NH in Dover, the Rochester Opera House and Butternut Farm in Farmington
The governor also hit two pizza places: LaFesta Pizzeria in Dover and Stripe Nine Brewery in Somersworth.
