CONCORD – House Speaker William O’Brien (R-Mont Vernon) and House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt (R-Salem) today congratulated Rep. Marilinda Garcia (R-Salem) on her appointment to the Business and Economic Development Task Force for the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL). Rep. Garcia is in her 3rd term representing the towns of Salem and Windham. She is the co-chair of the House Republican Alliance and serves on the House Finance and House Legislative Administration committees. Garcia was a member of the “40 Under Forty” 2011 class for those individuals under 40 years old who are making a difference in the community and was identified as a “Rising Star” by the New Hampshire Union Leader. Garcia is active in supporting conservative values among Hispanics and recently participated in a national campaign by GOPAC.
House Speaker William O’Brien
“Rep. Garcia is a leading voice for economic growth in the House and is active in shaping the policies that have brought New Hampshire back from the financial brink and created an environment to bring good new jobs here. She appreciates the ideals paramount to our economic prosperity such as creating a supportive business climate, working to provide an environment favorable to increasing the creation of private sector jobs, preventing over-regulation of business, and keeping government lean to minimize its burden on taxpayers and businesses. She is an ideal choice to reach out to Hispanics nationally to remind them of these ideals and New Hampshire Republicans are proud that Rep. Garcia is participating in this conversation nationally.”
House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt
“As a fellow Salem resident and close friend of Marilinda, I’m thrilled to see her leading efforts to share Republican ideals of supporting our small business community and fostering economic development with Hispanics nationally. This is a great opportunity for both her and the Party to grow support among groups whose values are consistent with Republicans in strengthening our economy, rewarding hard work and taking personal responsibility. Salem is very proud of her efforts and is lucky to have her representing us both in Concord and nationally.”
