Paralyzed with fear as a child while my mother suffered down the hall is a feeling I will never lose.
At that age I was not yet empowered to protect my mom. Thanks to the strong influence of my grandparents, over time I gained that strength and have since dedicated my life to protecting and serving the most vulnerable among us.
After almost three decades in law enforcement I had seen the devastating effect domestic violence has on all it touches.
Yesterday I went to Concord to witness the signing of bills that expand victims rights and empower them to seek justice and begin to heal the scars abuse leaves. I will not hide from you the fact that although overjoyed to be there, it was a very emotional day for me personally.
At the statehouse I joined with fellow law enforcement leaders from across New Hampshire in the advancement of laws that protect our most fragile populations. As the next Senator from New Hampshires 4th district I will continue to fight for justice.
