Letter: Proven leader, ready to serve

Published: 10/3/2022 7:00:30 AM

My name is Christine Tappan. I’m an Army veteran, corporate manager, small business owner, previous teacher, and appointed government policy leader here in the Granite State and I’m running for the New Hampshire State Senate in District 17. After high school, I joined the United States Army as an intelligence analyst. Later, I took on a new challenge: helping protect our most vulnerable children at the Department of Health and Human Services. In 2017, I was appointed by Governor Sununu to serve as an associate commissioner at Health and Human Services. I’m proud to say I was unanimously confirmed by both Republican and Democratic executive councilors.

I plan to take my deep experience and make it work in the State House for the residents of District 17. As I have campaigned throughout the towns of my district, I’ve listened and heard concerns about high energy costs and rising property taxes. The lack of affordable housing and childcare. I have also heard people upset at the undermining of our public education system, and the freedom to make reproductive choices that are right for their family. As state senator for District 17, I intend to be a fierce advocate for our community, while also focusing on working collaboratively with members of the legislature, government, business and communities to stand up for our freedoms, a fair economy, quality education for our children, and democracy. I ask the voters for their support this November 8.
