Position on the Issues
From the Union Leader Voter Guide:

What is the most important LOCAL problem in your district? How would you fix it?
As I visit Manchester and Litchfield, people keep telling me that our schools need help while those same people are concerned about their taxes. My solution is to see that every dollar allocated to school funding is attached to direct student services. I would work to see that the state and federal government fund mandates they place on our towns. I would vote against downshifting of state cost to local communities and see that Manchester and Litchfield get a fair share of school funding aid.

What forms of expanded gambling, if any, do you support?
I would be willing to look at two strictly regulated casinos. I would like to see one in the southern part of the state and one in the northern part where people can come and vacation and stay and enjoy our beautiful state.

What changes, if any, are needed in New Hampshire's education funding system?
State and federal education mandates need state and federal funds. The state froze building aid, impacting all of our districts and diverting costs to local taxpayers. The federal special education mandate is funded at a level of around 17% when their obligation is 40%. I support a moratorium on refugees entering Manchester. They are well intended but with some students arriving with limited education, the concern is how our district can afford these programs without additional federal funds.
