Barrington, NH – Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jackie Cilley is pleased to announce that Mo Baxley, former executive director of NH Freedom to Marry, is joining her campaign as field director. Baxley, who has 30 years of experience including successfully directing public education, legislative and labor campaigns, working at the local, state, and national level, also served in the New Hampshire House. Her focus will be organizing county and local committees in support of Jackie's candidacy.

"We are thrilled that Mo is joining our team," said Cilley. "I know from working with her to pass marriage equality that she is a tireless advocate for what she believes in. Living in New Hampshire and having established relationships with scores of our citizens makes her an invaluable asset to our campaign."

"I am very excited about the Jackie Cilley for Governor campaign and thrilled to be working with Jackie," said Baxley, adding "I worked directly with Jackie on marriage equality and saw firsthand her commitment to doing the right thing and her effectiveness in getting the job done."

New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley has called Mo a "NH hero" for her efforts to pass marriage equality legislation in the legislature: "A lot will be said and written over the resounding victory for marriage equality in New Hampshire. Many will get credit, many will take credit but from my point of view the hero of this historic win is Mo Baxley… While many involved were helpful no one was as instrumental to today's win than Mo Baxley."

Mo lives in the Lakes Region.
