Bonnie. (W)right for Salem.
Thank you for visiting my campaign website. I hope you will find this to be a useful tool in learning more about me and my campaign. On this site, I will maintain campaign news and updates, upcoming events, local news, and ideas on how you can be involved. Let us journey together to victory on election day!
I’m not your typical politician. About seven years ago, I was fighting to give people the right to know where their food comes from. NH already had a bill to label genetically engineered foods, but no grassroots organization supporting it. I saw the need and took on the challenge of starting a grassroots organization to get in done.
In retrospect, I had no idea what I was doing, what I would learn and how it would lead me to want to run for office. I thought politics was too confusing and too time-consuming to keep up with. I thought our elected officials were looking out for us; and that I could trust them, and the people like I have become, to do the right thing for me. I found out that, while our State Reps are representing my town, some of the ones we have elected are not representing me, nor are they representing many of Salem’s voters.
The more I learned about what was going on in our State Capital, the more involved I became. As I exchanged information with those who were working with me on food safety, I started to learn about other issues that matter to our town and state.
I have come a long way in the last seven years!
After years of working behind the scenes, I decided to run for State Representative in 2016, because I want to be a “Do-er” instead of a watcher. I didn’t get elected in 2016, but I’m not one to easily give up, so I ran again in 2018. Hopefully, the third time is a charm, as I am running again in 2020. I know that working together we can get good things done for our families and community.
I recognize that I still have a lot to learn. But I’m going to run, not as a career politician, but as someone who is eager, willing and, perhaps most important, capable of learning. I will be a fresh face, with fresh views.
I want to represent Salem in Concord. I would like to represent you!
Please check out my biography. I hope that you will agree that I am qualified; I hope you will agree that I am (W)right for Salem!
I welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use my Contact page to tell me what I’m doing right or how I can improve. I am always happy to answer any questions you may have.
