If elected or re-elected, please describe any innovations, reforms or improvements you seek to introduce to your office.
The position of register of probate should either be removed from the NH constitution or brought back to its original purpose. Currently the role has no responsibilities. I will work with our state legislature to bring resolve to this issue during my time as register of probate. It should not be utilized as a political soap box for topics unrelated to the position.
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?
I have not heard (currently) of many issues facing Manchester residents in relation to this position. Outside of this position and in other races there are a multitude of concerns and issues, however I am not campaigning on those nor will I use this position to state personal preferences on unrelated issues.
How does your background (excluding time serving in the position you are seeking) qualify you for the position you are seeking?
Empathy and customer service are the trademarks of all positions I have held over the past 12 years. If elected for this position and I am able to assist in bringing the position back to its originally intended purpose I will utilize those same characteristics to assist residents during typically trying times navigating the probate court system. If the position is removed from the state constitution I will have assisted in “de-cluttering” state government of un-needed positions.
In your view, describe the political atmosphere in New Hampshire over the last two years. Do you believe this will have any impact on your position?
This along with several other county positions, in my opinion, should not fall prey to the typical left vs right mindset of the current political system. The positions at the country level, especially those labeled as Register, should be customer service focused as they do not legislate laws and ordinances.
How is county government unique from municipal or state government in New Hampshire? Do you believe it is necessary?
Again as in question 4, I see county government more as a customer service branch. The counties here in NH serve unique purposes such as running and maintaining county jails, courts and nursing homes etc. It is a necessary function that also helps bring about the checks and balances needed to ensure the government is made by the people and works for the people.
Do you believe that COVID-19 will impact county government in the future?
Covid will impact us all In the long term. Based both on our reactions to novel viruses and restrictions that have been placed the same procedures may be used in future instances. Though the majority of decisions are held at the state level many are also controlled at county and city/town levels.
What were the biggest issues faced by the person serving in the role you are seeking over the past two years? How did they, or how did you, deal with those issues?
There was no active pursuit to either abolish or restore this position in the last two years. When conducting research on the current Register of Probate the most I found was relative to topics and opinions with no relevance to the position. The title of Register of Probate appears in my opinion to have been used as a soap box for issues outside of the county level and job description. I look to bring that back to focus on instituting change for the position and working with State Senators and Represenatives to do so.
