The story on Chris Hanson's move from Raymond to Windham is much appreciated. As someone who worked with him for two years in Raymond and is a Windham resident, I am excited for Windham’s future. I know that, given time and opportunity, he will prove to be a great asset to our town.
My statements to your reporter were paraphrased in the article and, for the most part, I am not displeased. However, on one point I do take issue. I stated, “Chris Hanson knows how to work as part of a team". I chose this wording specifically because, to me, it has a significantly different connotation than the hackneyed descriptive of “a team player".
I understand each publication is free to rely on its own style standards. Perhaps I am in a minority to whom double quote marks imply a verbatim quote. For the sake of clarity, may I suggest the use of single quotes when paraphrasing?
