On the Issues
Justice is the salvation of Democracy. I will fight for economic, gender, racial, social, criminal and environmental justice in Washington.
We must move forward, not backward. I will work to transform this country into a nation that affirms the value of people regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender identity or sexual orientation.
Healthcare is a basic human right; every citizen, regardless of health or economic status, deserves full access to high-quality healthcare. Health is key to overall well-being and economic stability for all. The only way to solve our national healthcare crisis is to expand Medicare to all.
I will fight for at least a $15 minimum wage and for a tax code that works for the 99% of us—not just for corporations.
Every American has a right to clean air and clean water. In Congress, I will continue to fight lobbyists, the administration, and special interests to safeguard and reform regulations and policies meant to prevent cancer and chronic illness.
I will fight to expand Social Security to lift Americans out of poverty, let people retire with dignity, and take care of our veterans and disabled citizens and their families.
We look forward to honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. this weekend. Dr. King was committed to non-violence and ending discrimination in our country. Now more than ever, it is important for Americans to honor Dr. King and his sacrifice by voicing their rejection of hate-speech, violence, and discrimination. We are better than this. We must speak out.
Hate speech and hate crimes are on the rise nationally and sadly, right here in New Hampshire. The violent, lynching attack on a bi-racial 8-year old boy in Claremont, New Hampshire was one of the most horrifying and troubling events in our state’s history. This troubled me greatly. It also troubled many other good people in our state legislature. So, I authored a resolution, HCR13, condemning hate crimes and any other form of racism in New Hampshire. It also rejects religious or ethnic bias, sexual or gender discrimination, as well as discrimination based on age, disability, marriage or familial status. Furthermore, it condemns incitements to violence or targeting a minority contrary to the law.
The hearing for this resolution will be held before the House Criminal Justice Committee on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at 10 AM in room 204 at the Legislative Office Building at 33 North State Street in Concord, New Hampshire. Please come to the hearing, speak out, or just sign in support of the resolution. If you can’t make it but wish for your voice to be heard, email or call committee members.
Enough is enough. Please help us send a message that there is no room for hate in New Hampshire. This has to stop.

If you had told me a few years ago that I would become an elected official or a Congressional candidate, I would have never believed you. I am not a career politician or an attorney - I'm a scientist and a mother who identified a problem in my community a few years ago and I had to use my expertise to help. Here's the story about what happened next.
In 2014, I discovered that kids were getting sick and some were dying of rare pediatric cancers across the New Hampshire Seacoast.
I was horrified. As a mom and as a trained scientist, I knew we needed an investigation. Two years after I reported it, the State of New Hampshire finally admitted there was a double pediatric cancer cluster in a five-town area of the seacoast. When the state dragged its heels on my recommendations to test the water and soil of affected homes, I notified the press and we started a fight for those families that continues today.
After being elected to the state legislature in 2016, I saw how my problem-solving approach as a scientist helped bridge gaps and bring people together on environmental policy-making and many other issues. Now I need your help to do the same in Congress. Read More ->
