As the proud product of Manchester public schools, I know firsthand the importance of a good education and creating opportunities for children and young adults across the Granite State. Generations of Americans have used the education they received, from pre-K to post-graduate, to reach the middle class and build better lives for themselves and their families.

New Hampshire has one of the highest rates of student debt in the nation, and I am committed to doing all I can to make college more affordable and limit the burden of college loans. That’s why I am working to expand Pell grants, increase consumer protections for borrowers, and support tuition-free education at community colleges and public universities to ensure everyone has the opportunity to get ahead.
