The dispute over whether Gary Daniels should be on the New Hampshire Human Rights Commission because of comments he made about gay people didn't dampen his support in his hometown. Daniels was the top vote-getter in a race for selectman. He said he is pleased people still have confidence in him. He already is a member of the school board.
The former state representative, who ran unsuccessfully for the state senate, was nominated for the Human Rights Commission by Gov. Craig Benson. A majority of the members on the executive council said they would not vote for confirmation, and Benson has delayed any vote. The councillors objected to comments Daniels made in 1997 in opposition to legislation giving gay people the right to file antibias claims with the commission.
