A 35-year resident of Porstmouth, I was president of Seacoast Media Group from 1997-2017, and was re-elected city councilor in 2021. I am also board chair of the Prescott Park Arts Festival, past board chair of St. John's church and co-chair of Portsmouth Listens. I love our city -- not only its places but its people -- and have benefited from serving its business community over the years. I was also Chamber board chair in 2003, then-director Peter Hamelin and I worked with Sen. Judd Gregg to get funding to expand the Little Bay Bridges. Seventeen years later, its done!
