I am excited about the opportunities before us this year, the hope and the vision of setting New Hampshire on the road to prosperity.

As a husband and father, I do not want my children and grandchildren bearing the financial burden of today’s generation, so I fight for a limited government that serves the people and lives within the means of the people to comfortably support it.

I want to create opportunities for people to succeed in life, and not have them subject to limitations placed on them by a heavy-handed government, so I push for pro-economic growth policies that attract and retain businesses that foster good paying, private sectors jobs.

As a military veteran, I am saddened that while we enjoy the rights and freedoms secured by those who served and sacrificed, many veterans are denied the health care they earned, so I will stand as their advocate to ensure that their service and sacrifice is not forgotten, but is honored and respected.

As a citizen of New Hampshire, “Live Free or Die” is more than a motto to me – it is a way of life. As I have done in the past, I will continue to support devolution of laws from the federal government to the state, where such ideas or laws can more effectively be implemented.
