A Voice for Our Community
I first ran and served for local office on the Zoning Board and Planning Board, because I wanted to have a voice in the future of my community.
While campaigning around my home town, I heard the same thing over and over again – “Nobody Listens.” Too many of us feel this way, that nobody listens to us here locally, which is why I ran for Senate and how I hope to change Concord.
I pledge to never support a sales or income tax. I will fight to lower taxes and cut regulations for small businesses and working families.
Local Control of Education
New Hampshire is consistently rated one of the best education systems in the country, and I want to keep it that way. That is why I oppose Common Core. I believe parents, teachers, and local school boards make better decisions about how to teach our children than Federal Bureaucrats. That’s why I also support Charter Schools and Home Schooling.
I will support making New Hampshire a Right To Work state. We need to attract new businesses and this is an important step in the right direction.I also believe we need to make higher education more affordable for New Hampshire students, and expand our community and tech colleges to give our students every opportunity they need to compete and prosper in a 21st century economy.
Second Amendment Rights
Preserving the natural beauty of our state is critically important both for the quality of life we enjoy here, but also for our state’s economy. Tourism and recreation are one of the largest economic industries in our state. I opposed the Northern Pass and Kinder Morgan pipeline projects because they are irresponsible and would have a huge negative impact on our region of the state.
