As a Somersworth school teacher I understand how dearly the people of Somersworth value education. It is not fair that we continually lose thousands of dollars worth of education funding year-after-year because the state refuses to adequately fund education. I'm running to not only help save Somersworth taxpayers money, but also help ensure that Somersworth is guaranteed the proper funding it deserves. By fostering partnerships with our school leaders, community leaders, and elected officials at the state-level, as well as advocating and representing the city I care so much about, I will make sure that the voices of students and taxpayers are represented. More support from the State of New Hampshire also means lower taxes with more funding for our schools!
