Ready for round 2.0!
Updated: Oct 14
It's been quite a ride as a freshman State Representative. I knew I would learn a lot in my first term in the House, but I admit I wasn't expecting so much of "the unexpected". We started with an unprecedented tie vote on the first ballot for NH Secretary of State, right after our swearing in, and we are wrapping up the session with unprecedented meetings held outside of Representatives Hall with masks, face shields, and seats 6 feet apart to (attempt to) continue the people's work during the COVID pandemic.
I am proud of much that I have accomplished in the last two years, and of what I was able to join with other House and Senate Democrats to accomplish, but we have a lot more work to do to make state government fairer, more effective, and more accountable. I know that the experience I have gained in the last two years will make me a better public servant, and I am excited to announce that I am running for a second term!
Among the things I want to improve on, I am planning to dedicate much more time this term to constituent communication -- and a web presence outside of the Zuckerberg empire.
Up soon: more reflections on 2019-20 accomplishments and disappointments and what's next. Please let me know what you'd like to hear more about in this space!
