Sue's Historic Campaign ...
My heart and soul belong to Bedford, so it seemed only natural that upon retiring, I found a new way to serve the community.
On November 6, 2017 I met with the Bedford NH Democrats Committee and expressed my desire to run for 2018 NH Representative. From that point forward, my campaign had a momentum of its own. Along with my core team, volunteers helped with on-line presence, meet and greets, canvassing, post card mailings, and letters to the editors. We gave this effort everything, not wanting a loss be due to complacency.
On November 6, 2018 our campaign made history...electing the first Democrat NH Representative in Bedford since 1934. We made a pledge to run a positive campaign that put people before politics, and the voters demonstrated that they agree: it's time for common sense, respect and civility to be the rule, not the exception.
I was born as the youngest of 4 children, raised in Manchester, and graduated from West High School in 1974. Many of my childhood memories involve my lifelong Bedford friends. My parents were both born and raised in Manchester, as well, so my roots run deep.
I graduated from Keene State College in 1978 and immediately went to work for the Bedford School District. I taught 12 years as a classroom teacher at McKelvie. After receiving my master's degree from Northeastern University, I was a school counselor for Bedford for another 27 years. With 39 years of service to the Bedford School District, I retired in June 2017.
I have lived in town since 1988. My wife, Susan, and I raised two children here, and
we are the proud grandparents of four exceptional little people.
It's go time ...
On December 5, 2018 I was sworn in, feeling incredibly honored to be representing the Town of Bedford. I have been appointed to the House Education Committee. As I ran my campaign, I want to hear from you, residents of Bedford and NH. I want to know your opinions, experiences, and hopes.
