If elected or re-elected, please describe legislation you expect to sponsor or co-sponsor.
I plan to refile the bills I had earlier this year which died due to COVID. Among them, I’m most excited to refile my bill about citizen review boards for officer-involved shootings.
What are the most important concerns facing you’ve heard from Manchester residents and how can you address those concerns if elected or re-elected?
The most popular topic in our district is probably the high number of abandoned homes, especially in light of the widespread homelessness in our area. Second to this would be substance misuse and the problems that relate to this widespread issue.
New Hampshire legislators are citizen legislators and being a legislator is a significant time commitment. How much time per week can you spend on legislative duties while the Senate/House is in session?
As much time as it takes. Proud to have a 100% attendance rating.
What is the most significant issue facing Manchester at the municipal level and how can you, as a legislator aid the city government on that issue?
COVID-19 has created a lot of new problems and also aggravated preexisting issues. As a legislator I can support initiatives recommended by city leadership.
With the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 in the future, do you support the legislature meeting remotely?
In your opinion, what were the five most significant pieces of legislation introduced in the New Hampshire General Court over the last two years? Please explain what made them significant.
Cannabis legalization; Minimum wage; Paid family & medical leave; Independent redistricting; And the state budget!
