Health Care is largely affected by federal policy. But there is one thing which all states must do and that is, to eliminate laws which compel hospitals to provide care regardless of ability to pay. This has been a disaster for their finances. The state government would also do best to limit the disastrous effects of the Affordable Care Act and work towards its replacement with free market health insurance. When we had market freedom in the health insurance industry, prior to the ACA, health care costs were far lower than they are today. Low costs lead to affordability for those who want insurance.
A vibrant economy is only created by free enterprise. New Hampshire has consistently been a leader among the fifty states, in low unemployment, per capita income and standard of living. Not coincidentally, we have no income tax, no sales tax (on most items) and an entrepreneurial culture. I believe that during this recent health crisis, we would have been much better off had the state government worked with business owners by allowing them – as the experts in their own businesses – allowing each business to determine it’s own ways to stay open safely. We need to remove many of the regulations to free enterprise which New Hampshire does have.
To inspire low cost housing, the state government needs to support landlords and encourage more people to enter the industry. Many are discouraged because of the onerous financial burdens and regulations which are heaped on landlords. Not only do these expenses get passed onto the tenants in the form of rent (the ONLY way that a landlord can recoup her losses is through rent), they discourage good entrepreneurs from becoming new landlords and thus increasing competition and innovation. Politicians need to stop pandering to the popular attitude that landlords are merely selfish misers and creating policies based on this myth. In addition, building regulations have worked to prevent inexpensive forms alternative housing from being built.
I support private sector education and maximum educational choice. I do so because, as an educator who has worked in both the public and private sectors in education, I have seen that the private options are far better and more cost effective, in numerous ways.
We need police reform and accountability. I support making the Laurie’s List public. I support better vetting of candidates for our police forces. But embracing people for their differences does not start with law. That has been tried and it has failed. Such change comes from culture and it needs to be promoted by personal contact and education. One of the best ways to promote peace and cooperation has always been through business. Prejudices are antithetical to business relationships. Encourage business relationships in which people depend on one-another for their livelihoods, and we will have gone a long way towards eroding childish prejudices.

We need to fund healthcare. We need to help young people who are interested in going into the healthcare field to be successful, get paid a living wage, and not be burdened with unending debt. Since being in office I have been a staunch supporter of mental health. My work focuses on criminal justice reform with a more centered approach to addiction and mental health treatments.
Yes!
We need to show our communities we care about where they live and how they live. Housing is a human right just like healthcare. If you do not have safe adequate and affordable housing this contributes to the health crisis we are seeing. There needs to be more incentives for landlords to offer lower priced housing. There also needs to be an increase in wages to close the wage gap ensuring people can afford their housing.
We need to fund public education adequately. There needs to be more resources in schools for children that learn differently. We need more counseling specialists and child advocates in schools. We need teacher team oriented teaching. Teachers need to also get paid a living wage and a wage comparable to the work and hours they spend teaching.
I have worked on many social and racial equality issues and policies. I will continue to work on criminal justice reform and mental health and my biggest issues. I believe everyone should have access to an education, health care, housing, and basic human rights no matter your sex, identity, religion, skin color, orientation, and anything else that makes you unique and special.
