He is guided by the fundamental belief that in order to move New Hampshire forward, we cannot afford to leave anyone behind. Here is Dan’s statement the day he filed to run for state Senate:
“I’m running to make sure that every citizen in every part of this district has someone who will work tirelessly for them every single day. I hope to bring new leadership to the State House to help shape New Hampshire’s future. I believe that District 15 should have a progressive voice in state government; a Senator who will stand up for working families, for a fair economy and for social policies that are just and advance equality; and a Senator who promotes policies that attract and keep young people here in New Hampshire’s economy, including affordable housing, quality education and strong communities. I am excited to get out there and talk with voters throughout Concord, Hopkinton, Henniker and Warner.
I look forward to a vigorous issues-based campaign, one modeled after Gov. Maggie Hassan’s honest and genuine approach to public discourse.”
Dan is a Concord attorney who for the past 8 years worked for New Hampshire Legal Assistance advocating for low to middle income persons and families in Court and in the Legislature, including in employment security, affordable housing, energy efficiency, consumer/utility law and veterans issues. Dan has a history of working with members of both political parties to get things done. He has provided community service including on the StayWarm NH project, to Habitat for Humanity, and on the City of Concord Board of Ethics.
