In Their Own Words:

I've lived in Nashua since 1973 with my husband, Mike. We have two sons who have now graduated from college after growing up in New Hampshire. I have deep roots in New Hampshire - ever since the age of 5 when my family enjoyed the beauty of New Hampshire in the lakes region.

A graduate of the University of Denver, I was the first Executive Director of the Nashua Girl's Club.

I first ran for public office in 1986 as a state representative and then as a state senator. I stopped the Nashua tollbooths, helped bring education funding to my district, was tough on crime and soft on children. In 2004, I was elected to the Executive Council, sometimes called the Governor's Council, and I haven't changed from my steadfast values that led to my 10 election victories. Since being elected to the Governor's Council, I have shone a bright spotlight on the practice of awarding NO BID contracts and approving retroactive contracts. I have voted to approve excellent Judicial nominees and am proud of my votes approving Agency Heads and members of our many State Boards and Commissions.

I bring a moderate independent voice to Concord.
