I'm running because reading the political news this past year has made me an activist. My family owns and runs Lewis Farm in Concord, I am no stranger to hard work. It's time for a fresh, new voice to represent the voters in Concord, speak out and make a difference in New Hampshire politics.
If you are looking for a progressive candidate that cares about quality of life, constituent services, and making Concord a great place to live and work, the buck stops here: I won't let you down.
As a mother of two and a business owner, I know how to get things done. I believe we can balance the state budget without putting the funding burden on the backs of the middle class through more property taxes. My view is that it is necessary and important to secure the funds for a project before committing.
Our legislature is more polarized than it has been for more than 100 years. As a transactional attorney I am skilled in the art of compromise and negotiation. I am comfortable reaching across the aisle to solve our pressing state issues.
Rebecca and her husband James run the Lewis Farm, selling fresh produce and compost to all of Central New Hampshire. This is a great state to run a business, and we need to attract more young talent to start small businesses and families here. We can start by electing a young progressive business owner who is rooted in the community.
Rebecca is member of the Concord Transportation Policy Advisory Committee. She has over 20 years experience managing construction projects, negotiating contracts, and resolving complex financial challenges. As an architect and attorney she is an expert in collaborating and negotiating with people of many backgrounds.
We need a fresh voice for change to push for real solutions in Concord. We are dealing infrastructure challenges such as red-listed bridges, the opiate crisis, track opioid abuse funding and target mental health solutions, fund full-day Kindergarten statewide and address escalading childcare costs. I want to protect women's healthcare, pass paid family and medical leave along with long-term funding for everyone's healthcare. Together we could better align in state college tuition with cost of neighboring states, attract new, talented people to start businesses and families in Concord. We could reverse $100M in unnecessary tax cuts for 3% of NH corporations, incentivize renewable energy in NH and prevent a 2019 poll tax on voters.
I will focus on solving problems; like a long-term statewide plan to treat opiate addiction, funding full-day kindergarten, sustainable state healthcare funding and a dedicated infrastructure project approach. I believe in better environmental regulation to prevent water contamination and cancer clusters, and I am firmly against Northern Pass.
I am not a member of a machine creating more unnecessary and restrictive laws, like a poll tax on college students.
