It has been an honor to serve as a State Representative to the New Hampshire House for the past 6 years.
I hope to continue that service, so I am running for another term. For the past 3 terms, I represented New Castle and Rye. This upcoming term, redistricting moved me from Rye and New Castle to a new district including New Castle and Ward 5 in Portsmouth.
Currently, I serve on the House Finance Committee. The main purpose of this committee is to construct the state’s biennial budget. It also reviews all bills that have a financial component.
I am assigned to Division II of the Finance Committee which includes the Department of Education, Department of Transportation, Department of Safety, Police Standards and Training, and the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources,
Previously I served on the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee. I participate in the Economic Justice Caucus and the Children’s Caucus. These bipartisan groups study and promote legislation that benefits the economic health of New Hampshire and the well being of our children. Through these committees, I have learned much and forged many relationships with other legislators.
I remain involved locally, serving on the Planning Board and Historic District Commission for New Castle. I am also on the National Advisory Council for Strawbery Banke Museum, and am a long time proprietor of the Portsmouth Athenaeum.
