Why I'm Running
I am running for Grafton County Attorney because I believe that we can do more to pursue justice and promote the safety and security of the County’s citizens. For the past four years, I’ve served the citizens of northern Grafton County as the prosecutor for Littleton, Sugar Hill, and, now, Franconia. In that time, I’ve learned how the justice system works and where it needs to be improved. Not every case ends with a lengthy jail sentence. Not every case should. But every case should give the victims of crimes the justice they deserve. That’s the vision that I want to bring to the County Attorney’s Office.
Over the past four years, I've worked tirelessly to improve our justice system in various ways, while keeping focus on our treatment of victims by:
- expanding local law enforcement outreach to organizations which provide services to victims of domestic and sexual violence in order to reach better outcomes;
- testifying in front of the New Hampshire Legislature in support of bills which became laws that now give law enforcement better tools to combat human traffickers;
- supporting efforts to allow addicts to get the help they need before they commit more serious crimes by expanding drug courts to the misdemeanor level; and
- fighting to allow veterans suffering from PTSD and other service-related ailments to connect to VA services and incorporate those services into the local court structure.
As County Attorney, I could do more to improve the outcomes for those involved in the justice system. I could help more people, promote fairer laws, and work for better justice. That’s why I am running for Grafton County Attorney.
