Next Tuesday, former New Hampshire senator and Berlin native Jackie Cilley will announce her candidacy for governor at the YWCA in downtown Manchester.
(Manchester – February 3rd, 2012) Sen. Cilley is a daughter of millworkers and the first member of her family to attend college. To announce her candidacy for governor Cilley chose the YWCA, which once served as a hostel for young women who came down to work in the mills, to reflect her commitment to New Hampshire's working class and the opportunities those jobs represented for families to move into the middle class.
Cilley earned a reputation as a fierce advocate for the rights of working men and women while in the General Court. She will focus her campaign on securing for future generations the opportunities that made the success of this generation of New Hampshire's families possible.
Jackie Cilley, who served in both New Hampshire's House and Senate representing Barrington, built a successful small business while teaching hundreds of New Hampshire students over her 20 years as a highly respected business professor with UNH's Whittemore School for Business and Economics. A Berlin native, Sen. Cilley earned a BA from the University of New Hampshire and an MBA from the Whittemore School.
