Jobs, job creation and job growth will be my top priorities if you elect me as your state senator. Over 50,000 people remain unemployed in this state. That is unacceptable. As an employer, small business owner and attorney for small businesses, I am intimately familiar with what it takes to help small businesses grow so they need and hire more employees. One thing businesses do not need is increased taxes and fees and I will do everything I can to prevent the state senate from enacting further taxes and fees on businesses and individuals, which inhibit economic growth. My goal is to make Nashua the most attractive city in the state and New Hampshire the most attractive state in the nation to businesses and employees.
