I've worked hard during my professional and political career delivering progressive change for New Hampshire residents. I'm extremely proud to earn the support of so many dedicated public servants. 

Letter: I support Rebecca Perkins Kwoka's historic candidacy


July 18 -- To the Editor: I wholeheartedly support Rebecca Perkins Kwoka’s historic campaign for State Senate in District 21. Rebecca, in addition to being a remarkably qualified and dedicated public servant with a long record of advocacy, would be the first openly LGBTQ woman ever elected to the New Hampshire State Senate. And as a mother of a young child, she would join a State Senate without a single young mother in it. These things matter. As legislators, it is our job to make sure that we represent our constituents, and to do that well we must look like and understand the lived experience of our constituents... Read More

Letter: Rebecca Perkins Kwoka for NH Senate


July 12 -- To the Editor: Driving up, down and across New Hampshire you learn a lot about the other people in you carpool. That is how I got to know Rebecca Perkins Kwoka, commuting to our monthly Leadership New Hampshire session days in 2017. In addition to her insightful contributions to our NH Leadership class, as she pulled from a wealth of knowledge in law, housing advocacy, renewable energy and the interesting Portsmouth City Council dynamics, I realized she was just getting started. When I heard Perkins Kwoka was running for State Senate, it sounded right... Read More

Letter: Let me tell you about the remarkable Rebecca Perkins Kwoka


July 10 -- To the Editor: I’ve been a registered Democrat my entire life. I’m a politics super fan and look forward to every Election Day, where you’ll usually find me holding a sign. These days, politics is not for the timid, and more often than not, involves a lot of heartache. Every once in a while, though, there are bright moments. This year, Democrats in District 21 have the opportunity to vote for a once-in-a-generation candidate on Primary Day. Please let me tell you about the remarkable Rebecca Perkins Kwoka, who is running for State Senate... Read More

Letter: Perkins Kwoka will keep state Senate on a progressive path


June 21 -- To the Editor: We all owe Martha Fuller Clark a huge debt of gratitude for her years of service and leadership on our behalf. I believe Rebecca Perkins Kwoka has the qualities we need to keep Senate District 21 on a progressive path. I have been impressed by her integrity, grit, work ethic, and good heart.

Letter: Support Rebecca Perkins Kwoka for state Senate


June 12 -- To the Editor: As a fellow public servant and working mother, I enthusiastically endorse Rebecca Perkins Kwoka for State Senate in the 21st district. I have seen firsthand Rebecca's commitment to the civic arena in her time as a City Councilor.

While we have a remarkable tradition of women leaders in our state, there is still a long way to go with representation of working mothers in politics... Read More

Letter: Rebecca Perkins Kwoka would serve the Seacoast well in state senate


June 10 -- To the Editor: Re Rebecca Perkins Kwoka I too noticed the "McIntyre 7" endorsed Rebecca Perkins Kwoka for District 21 State Senator, so I was not surprised by Claire Prout's reaction. I believe that during the McIntyre hearings, the previous Council appeared not to be listening to the residents, became arrogant and acted superior to the rest of us. All of their previous good work was forgotten at the election. I voted for people on both sides of that issue and I voted for Rebecca. I think she does listen and would be a superb state senator in Martha Fuller Clark's model... Read More
