Hello Amherst, Today, I am happy to announce that I am running for State Representative. I am running because I believe that we need a new generation of ideas. New Hampshire has been in a decline for a long time and the signs are only getting worse. Members of my generation are finding fewer and fewer reasons to stay as property taxes continue to rise, education continues to be cut, and good jobs continue to be few and far between.
I think that it’s time to acknowledge that we can do better for our citizens. Education needs to be properly funded without extortion through property taxes. If we want people to raise families here, we need to give our workers paid family leave so they can afford to settle down. The children of those families will need access to affordable higher education which is currently lacking.
Together, we can make these changes and more to create a better community and a better New Hampshire. Join me in my run for State Representative if you believe that it is time to put pragmatism over politics and make Amherst an even better place to live.
Consider me on September 8th!
