My goal is to be an independent voice in the New Hampshire Senate for the rapidly increasing numbers of undeclared voters. These voters are now the largest voting bloc in our state. I believe they are fed up with both parties. I served as A Republican Representative for 14 years, then as a Democratic Representative for 12 years. I came to understand that partisanship of both parties has been a major stumbling block holding back solutions to problems of education, tax reform, environmental protection, energy, and accountability. It is my goal to approach these problems in a non-partisan way, free from party games, and bosses. It is time to be unafraid to speak truth to power.
