Get your walking shoes on, we'll be hitting the doors soon! Updated 10/5/2016.
Rachael Booth - State Representative, Grafton 15 (Bath, Benton, Easton, Haverhill, Landaff, Orford, Piermont, Warren)
“I want to restore fairness to our state government – fairness to our seniors, fairness to our veterans, fairness to our education and health care systems, fairness to our economy, and fairness and equality to the LGBTQ community.”
Sean Carney - State Representative, Carroll 2 (Chatham, Conway, Eaton, Hale’s Location)
“Ultimately we must begin to address climate change and make the social adaptations accordingly. With that being said, our government and elections have become so co-opted by the monies and interests, that the necessary legislation is extremely unlikely to be adopted, or even discussed. Therefore this election is just as much about fixing our democracy as it is about addressing climate change.”
Erik Corbett - State Representative, Carroll 1 (Bartlett, Hart’s Location, Jackson)
“We are working to bring progressive leadership to Concord to create a family friendly economy, a sustainable environment and a future for us all.”
Sherry Frost - State Representative, Strafford 16, Ward 4 (Dover)
“I want to be a part of making New Hampshire safer and more inclusive, and to help create an environment that attracts and keeps business and culture that makes all our lives better.”
Sylvia Gale - State Representative, Hillsborough 28, Ward 1 (Nashua)
“I will continue to be a visible and outspoken community activist for change, equity, and humane treatment for all, demanding an end to systemic racism and injustice, economic inequality, support and welcoming for all immigrants and refugees, prevention of firearms violence, and building community.”
Mark King - State Representative, Hillsborough 33, Ward 6 (Nashua)
“Together, we are not powerless; our fight for a just and sustainable country that works for all will prove this out. We have to highlight and change political processes and cultural structures that separate us. This begins in our hearts and homes, in our civic life at the neighborhood, city and state levels. Sharing our various life experiences, perspective and energy in service to a future of health and dignity for all begins now!”
Sean Lewis - State Representative, Rockingham 8 (Salem)
“I was inspired to run thanks to the gains and energy brought about by the Bernie Sanders campaign. I ran because I knew that there were people in my community who felt the same way I felt, that there was a better way.”
Mark MacKenzie - State Representative, Hillsborough 17, Ward 10 (Manchester)
“I have been a strong advocate of working class people in this state. It has been my life’s work. I hope to bring my experience and skills to the table and help to advance a progressive agenda which helps the workers of New Hampshire.”
Susan Ouellett - State Representative, Rockingham 3 (Raymond)
“Raising everyone up is the only way to achieve the ideals of democracy. Promoting equality for all and investing in healthcare, education, jobs at fair wages, and environmental protection will grow the economy, reduce poverty, and improve health and well-being.”
Marcy Rothenberg - State Representative, Merrimack 24 (Hooksett)
“The basic qualities of American life are in the balance: human rights; fair pay; equal opportunity regardless of race or gender; quality education and work opportunity; social and health services; quality mass transit and communication.”
Jan Schmidt - State Representative, Hillsborough 28, Ward 1 (Nashua)
“The government is there to assure that everyone is treated fairly, and I truly believe that there is much to recover and much left to do. Equal access, equal pay, livable wages, all our rights.”
Christine Seibert - Hillsborough County Commissioner, District 1 (Bedford, Manchester, New Boston)
“This election is about getting the money out of politics and fairness and equality for all people regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation, no matter your station in life or what you believe in we are all Americans when it comes down to it and we should at least agree on that.”
Tim Smith - State Representative, Hillsborough 17, Ward 10 (Manchester)
“[Healthcare] is a very personal issue for me, as I grew up not having access to affordable healthcare until my late 20s after I had graduated college. We need to do more, as a state, and examples include expanding (rather than eliminating) the NH Health Protection Program and making health and nutrition education a higher priority in schools.”
Linda Tanner - State Representative, Sullivan 9 (Newport, Unity, Springfield, Croydon, Grantham, Plainfield, Cornish, Sunapee, Meriden)
"New Hampshire should be a place in which treatment for drug addiction and mental illness should be accessible, affordable, and effective. We should have good roads, safe bridges, and broadband service to all parts of the state. Our education system should start in early education and include community college at a sliding scale. We should be moving towards reliable, clean, affordable energy systems while protecting our environment."
Mary Till - State Representative, Rockingham 6 (Derry)
"This election is about whether a democracy is for all the people or only for the powerful few."
Alejandro Urrutia - State Representative, Hillsborough 37 (Hudson, Pelham)
"I envision a Granite State more inclusive, with better education opportunities for the children of low income families, better mental health services and quality and affordable health care for all. I have a vision of a New Hampshire where everybody has the same opportunities without any discrimination because of the color of their skin, the accent of their voice or their sexual orientation."
Andru Volinsky - Executive Council, District 2 (Acworth, Alstead, Barnstead, Belmont, Boscawen, Bradford, Canterbury, Charlestown, Chesterfield, Dublin, Durham, Farmington, Gilmanton, Gilsum, Goshen, Hancock, Harrisville, Henniker, Hinsdale, Hopkinton, Langdon, Lempster, Madbury, Marlborough, Marlow, Nelson, Newbury, Northfield, Rollinsford, Roxbury, Salisbury, Stoddard, Strafford, Sullivan, Surry, Sutton, Unity, Walpole, Warner, Washington, Webster, Westmoreland, and Winchester, and the cities of Concord, Dover, Franklin, Keene, Rochester, Somersworth)
“We need to elevate the voices of the 99% because too often our basic values and concerns are not heard by elected leaders.”
Dan Weeks - Executive Council, District 5 (Amherst, Antrim, Bennington, Brookline, Deering, Dunbarton, Fitzwilliam, Francestown, Greenfield, Greenville, Hillsborough, Hollis, Hudson, Jaffrey, Litchfield, Lyndeborough, Mason, Merrimack, Milford, Mont Vernon, New Boston, New Ipswich, Peterborough, Richmond, Rindge, Sharon, Swanzey, Temple, Troy, Weare, Wilton, Windsor, the city of Nashua)
“I envision a New Hampshire where every person has an equal voice and a fair chance to realize their sacred potential, thereby contributing to stronger families, more durable communities, and a more just and inclusive nation and world.”
Bonnie Wright - State Representative, Rockingham 8 (Salem)
"I have progressive ideas, and support much of what Senator Bernie Sanders was trying to bring to our country. On the House floor, I will strive to bring the same values that Bernie has to New Hampshire, and will support his federal issues, as appropriate, on the local level."
