The American Federation of Teachers (AFT), is a union of professionals that champions fairness; democracy; economic opportunity; and high-quality public education, healthcare, and public services for their students, their families, and our communities. They are committed to advancing these principles through community engagement, organizing, collective bargaining and political activism, and especially through the work their members do.
SEA/SEIU Local 1984 represents more than 10,000 public- and private-sector employees across the Granite State. The union has negotiated hundreds of contracts with state, county, municipal and private-sector employers.
SEA/SEIU Local 1984 does not base its endorsements on political party affiliation. It endorses candidates who support working people – the fiber of our nation. They support candidates who believe in:
- Union Building. We endorse candidates who support legislation and policy that gives all workers the right to organize and collectively bargain for better wages, benefits, and working conditions.

Renew US endorses candidates who support climate justice, racial justice and economic justice. I am honored to be one of 34 New Hampshire candidates endorsed by Renew US.
I am pleased to again receive a recommendation from the National Educational Association of New Hampshire (NEA-NH). This time, I am especially honored to receive one of NEA-NH’s 2022 Contested Primary Recommendations.
NEA-NH is comprised of more than 17,000 members, with a mission to advocate for the children of New Hampshire and public school employees and to promote lifelong learning. Members are public school educators in all stages of their careers, including classroom teachers and other certified professionals, instructors at public higher education institutions, students preparing for a teaching career, education support personnel and those retired from the profession. They are committed to improving student achievement in New Hampshire public schools, providing learning opportunities for teachers and students, and ensuring that all students are ready to learn.
NEA-NH says, “This year may be the most consequential election in our history. It starts next week with the New Hampshire primaries on Tuesday, September 13. NEA-New Hampshire’s Government Relations Committee and Executive Board have recommended 51 candidates in this year’s contested primaries. The complete list appears below. This year’s list includes 38 Democrats and 13 Republicans.
“We need elected officials who will work together to ensure our educators are fairly compensated, our schools are fully funded, and every child receives a fair and equitable education,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. “These elected officials start their journey as candidates who are committed to the fight to protect and increase funding for public schools and make sure our students have the tools they need to succeed.”
This election cycle too far too important to sit out.
“Your vote is needed to prevent radical legislation that slashes education funding, takes away resources from students who need it most, and makes it harder to recruit and retain qualified educators,” said Tuttle. “It’s time to vote your future.”
Move the Goalpost recognizes targeted candidates in the most competitive districts in New Hampshire – typically, the districts where the outcome depends on the quality of the candidates, and the level of resources and attention they are given.
They say, “Many of these races will be decided by 100 votes or less. This means every $100 we get to them makes a real difference. And that’s great, because they will make a real difference for New Hampshire once they are elected.”
I am pleased to be recognized by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America as a common-sense gun safety advocate.
The gun violence prevention movement is made up of gun violence survivors, prevention advocates, and friends and family members of victims-all working together to prevent gun violence in our communities.
They say, “Electing candidates who will govern with gun safety top of mind is fundamental to addressing our nation’s gun violence crisis, which takes more than 110 lives and wounds hundreds more every single day.”
The New Hampshire AFL-CIO is the state’s largest labor federation. They encourage the organization of all workers so that they may equally share in the benefits of union organization; work to increase public understanding of the labor movement and its contributions to society; advocate for legislation and policies which will safeguard and promote the principle of collective bargaining, the rights of workers and consumers, and the security and welfare of all working people; and oppose legislation harmful to these objectives. The New Hampshire AFL-CIO is a diverse social justice organization that is committed to the dignity of all and united in the struggle to improve the lives of working families and our communities.
New Hampshire Sierra Club is a state chapter of the Sierra Club; the most enduring and influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States of America. Founded in 1990, the NH Chapter is a volunteer-run non-profit organization, supporting environmental protections and clean energy solutions.
