State Representative Candidate – Nashua Ward 3 / District 6

I am running as a first-time candidate for State Representative.  I feel I can no longer sit on the side lines while bills are being passed into laws that limit our rights, seek to marginalize groups of people, and decimate our public education system.

Nashua is a wonderful place to live.  People are caring and involved.  And after all the traveling my husband and I have had to do for work, this place is home.  I don’t want to see it become prey to special interest groups and agendas not in keeping with our “live free” ideals.

I believe that good government is the result of hard work done by legislators who take time to find out what people need then investigate the most practical way to provide solutions.  This requires the ability to listen, research and problem-solve, things I have done my whole career. Only together can we strengthen our communities and our economy.

As a first-time candidate, I have done my homework to understand the background and current state of the key priorities I would work on as a legislator.
