The state needs to make sure we can work to raise medicaid rates to help providers and also nursing home workers. We must also work on lowering the price on prescription drugs. We must de-stigmatize mental illness and make it accessible for anyone. With addiction, it is a disease and it must be treated as such. We must provide prevention, treatment, and recovery options for everyone who seeks it.
The property tax system in our state is not adequate at all in this state. We must think about how we help those who are on a fixed income and also help young families looking to raise a family in New Hampshire. We should increase the minimum wage as 7.25 is absolutely dismal. We should support our small business owners by being able to get them a trained workforce.
I believe the state government made the right move with the Housing appeals board. We should also create incentives for building affordable workforce housing. Our vacancy rate in Nashua is too low and we need to incentivize building. Finally we should protect tenants and secure better tenant rights in NH.
We should find ways to continue funding education outside of our property tax system that prioritizes wealthy communities over property-poor areas. We should also make sure that pre-K is available to all students. Full day kindergarten finally was passed but we need to go beyond that.
As a person of color, this is a lived experience for me. I would recommend working on criminal justice reform. We should find ways to hold police accountable and help redirect resources to community programs that we are asking police to deal with. We should also find ways to make our state government much more equitable.
