Do you support commuter rail funding? I support the concept.

Do you support providing more state money for higher education? Yes. New Hampshire has a wonderful state university that it has never adequately supported.

Do you support pro-gun legislation, such as constitutional carry? No. While I’ve been a hunter and shooter for much of my life, I believe that there should be a license required to carry guns just as the needs to be a license to hunt or drive a car.

Do you support reauthorizing Medicaid expansion? Yes I do. While it may not be the perfect solution, it has provided health care for the needy and it is the right thing to do.

Do you support increasing the minimum wage? Yes

Do you support marijuana legalization or decriminalization? I do support marijuana decriminalization.

What would you like voters to know about your philosophy, principles or priorities? I believe that state representatives are elected to represent everyone in their town or district, not just Republicans or Democrats. It’s time to reopen the lines of communication and work together for the citizens of New Hampshire.
