Why am I Running for the New Hampshire House District 20 Seat?

Serving in local government is a great opportunity to help improve our communities. My first elected experience was as a representative on the Oyster River School Board. While on the board, I worked to encourage and support creative problem-solving. It provides the foundation required to make improvements to our students' educational experience and models the behavior we want our students to learn. I later joined the Durham Town Council and had a chance to work on finding solutions to municipal issues. Through countless hours in meetings, I heard the challenges our communities face and the impact that state polices and budgets have on municipal governments and school boards. These polices and budgets have increasingly become barriers to the success of local school districts and have compelled me to run for the State House District 20 representative seat.

Why did I choose to run for district 20? It was just created in the new state district maps and includes Dover Ward 4, Durham, Lee, and Madbury. It has four very different town governments and two school districts. Improving communication and collaboration between so many stakeholders is challenging, and representing District 20 is a chance to use my experience to advocate for polices and budgets that support all of our communities. I registered to have my name placed on the Democratic primary ballot September 13 and hope to earn your support.
