Our State Representatives
Strafford is in House District #3, currently consisting of the towns of Strafford and New Durham. Redistricting to take place this session may alter this district.
Together, Strafford and New Durham elect two State Representatives. Currently both are Republicans:
Rep. Kurt Wuelper is a member of the House Judiciary Committee.
Wuelper supports using public taxpayer funds to support religious and charter schools and has recently sponsored legislation on this issue. He is the past president of NH Right to Life and was endorsed by the NH Right to Life PAC in 2020.
Rep. Michael Harrington is a member of the House Science, Technology & Energy Committee.
Harrington has primarily sponsored anti-income tax and energy related legislation. He has received A and A+ grades from Americans for Prosperity, a libertarian-conservative political advocacy group funded by David Koch and Charles Koch, whose endorsement they received in 2020. How this is connected to the needs of Strafford and New Durham residents remains to be seen.
