Hollis Republican Nancy Wall is challenging Nashua Democrat David Gottesman in the race for New Hampshire Senate District 12.

Wall is a native of New Hampshire and has resided in Hollis for the past 30 years. Educated at Radcliffe College, Wall was successful in a 40-year career in retail management before turning her talents to serving the Nashua Symphony as General Manager from 1991 to 1997.

Like Gottesman, Wall served one term in the legislature, and has a long record of community involvement.

Wall also served on the board for the Granite State Taxpayers, an organization founded to protect the interests of the taxpayers of New Hampshire.

“I have always enjoyed the leadership roles I have held in my community and in this state. It is a part of who I am. I devote my time to the things in life that I cherish and one of those happens to be our way of life here in New Hampshire. It’s important, I think, that we do not take for granted what many have worked for years to preserve: our freedom, our independence and our privacy,” Wall stated in her candidate announcement.

Wall says her candidacy for Senate offers voters a choice. “I believe we all have a choice to make with regard to the future of New Hampshire. Will we work to retain the personal freedom and low overall taxes our state prides itself on, or will we stand idly by while our state lapses into a new era of costly government expansion as those states that surround us have?”

In addition to her political endeavors, Nancy spends her free time helping people track personal genealogical histories. Among her current memberships are the New Hampshire Historical Society, the New England Historic and Genealogical Society, the Sons & Daughters of the First Settlers of Newbury, the Piscataqua Pioneers and the Hollis Historical Society.

Wall is active with her church in Hollis, the Anna Keyes Powers chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Hollis Republican Town Committee. She has two daughters and a son and two grandchildren.
