Public Education is a true gift to the future of individuals and to our state and country, and the biggest reason for this to succeed has always been our teachers. Teach a child not what to learn, but how to learn, teach them to be inquisitive and interested in learning and we will have the doctors we need, the scientists, the inventors, the people who build and repair and program, and on and on. I honor their work and am grateful for their dedication to their service. I am pleased to announce that both AFT-NH and NTU have endorsed my candidacy because they believe that together we are working to better the lives of all citizens of the Granite State.
My one driving goal as a Legislator is to work for Justice. Some of us, because of who we are or what we look like, find it easy to obtain. But Justice is a promise of Equality to everyone, not just the majority, and so I will work to ensure this for all.
From their endorsement letter – “LGBTQ+ rights and protections are constantly at risk in the state of New Hampshire. The community as a whole is relying on hard-working advocates, to promote, move forward, and communicate on issues that would limit or inhibit progress on LGBTQ+ equality.”

Yesterday I received these via mail.
One wants me to remove all regulations on weapons, another wants me to remove all taxes, the last one wants me to remove a woman’s right to bodily autonomy.
I promise to consistently vote for smart gun laws, protecting 2a of the NH Constitution while protecting the community. I’d ask for help from gun owners on how to require everyone follow the guidance of responsible owners and make NH safer for everyone.
NH’s taxes are out of balance because of the consistent downshifting of the burden to run this state down onto property owners. We are punishing poorer communities and those with other burdens when they know our children should all have the same access to public education, safe roads and bridges, access to healthcare, a secure retirement within the community they spent their lives.
I promise to secure and protect the hard personal decisions women have to make concerning their own health and that of their families. The state has no right to interfere between a woman and her doctor.
Gov. Sununu announced on Tuesday that 5,466 grants have been approved as part of the Main Street Relief program, which compensates businesses for some of their losses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sununu said the average grant awarded is nearly $62,000. Each grant will cover 17% of a business’s losses with a cap of $350,000. (Source: WMUR ) Note: with 5,466 grants announced and an average grant of $62,000, this would mean $339 million out of the $400 million in funds allocated for the program have been spent.
