"I am a candidate that supports the interest of working families. I know the challenges that they face, because I face them too. Workforce development is a very important issue to me. Local small businesses need to be able to attract and retain young professionals and their families to New Hampshire, and we need to make this a place that they want to live. This means we need job training and workforce development programs that prepare students to enter the trades and help people who are transition to their second or third careers. That means fighting for paid family and medical leave, so an illness in the family doesn’t require someone to choose between helping their family and paying the bills. That means investing in our public schools so families from New Hampshire or those looking to move to New Hampshire, see this as a place they want to raise their kids. That means lowering the cost of college, so kids that grow up here don’t have to leave the state to receive an affordable higher education. These issues are important to me and set me apart, not just because I believe in them, but because I live them."
