We must work to expand and grow the role of Public Health Regions to allow cities and towns to offer critical non-emergency care for people suffering from mental health or an addiction illness. Our mental health system is overburdened, Public Health Departments/Regions have the ability, with funding sources, to offer crisis intervention, bridge treatment and community outreach until a person can be connected with a long term provider. We must also move towards pay for performance models for publicly funded treatment providers and facilities which ties funding to measurable quality of care from the service provider.
New Hampshire continues to adopt the Federal minimum wage of $7.25hr which is not a livable wage. I support raising the minimum wage gradually to $15.00hr by 2025. As a self employed small business owner, I understand how market competition drives wages for workers. Certainly in Southern New Hampshire you will see this occurring in order to compete with Massachusetts wages. However - we cannot allow the surrounding States to continue to undercut our labor pool. In order to retain skilled and unskilled labor we must advocate for a living minimum wage of $15hr here in New Hampshire.
I will advocate for expansion of public housing and affordable housing options here in New Hampshire. My district is certainly built out and already contains many housing options from single family housing to workforce housing. I believe the State should be providing tax credit incentives to developers who build affordable housing units in the State.
The State needs to direct more funding directly to the school districts throughout the State. Local property tax payers are currently overburdened by the cost of funding our schools with no equitable disbursement of funds from the State. We must search for alternative ways to fund public schools beyond the over reliance on property tax payers. My core belief is that every child deserves a quality education no matter the zip code they live in. I would also be advocating for the State to assist in funding of public trade and vocational schools here in the State to offer both academic and vocational learning opportunities.
As a social worker, I will promote policies that support social and racial justice throughout the State. I hope to work with and learn from a diverse range of people to understand which social and racial policies would benefit the people of New Hampshire. I would draw on my experience to help develop policies that reimagine social services in the criminal justice system. I will stand with, listen too, and work along side people of color in our communities to better understand how I can support positive changes in racial justice in our State.
