I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the property owners who let me put my campaign signs on their property. I will continue to work hard to bring your questions and concerns to the state house. Together, we will work to make our district (Seabrook/Hampton Falls) and the state of New Hampshire a great and prosperous place to live. Thank you and God Bless America."
