Strafford - New Durham State Rep District Elections
Strafford's State Representative District is comprised of Strafford and New Durham. We elect two State Representatives that represent both towns. The Democrats running in 2018 are former State Representative Bob Perry of Strafford and Ellen Phillips of New Durham.
A Strafford resident since 1972, Bob Perry was first elected to the NH House of Representatives in 2006; through 2014, he served 7 years on the House Election-Law Committee. Bob is a retired Superior Court Stenographer of 30 years and a 12-year member of the Board of Directors of the Rochester Opera House. He has been a member of the Concord-based 501(c)(3) organization Open Democracy for nearly 8 years. Its mission is political equality for all through an open, accountable, trusted government free from the corruption of big money politics.
There is currently no system of checks and balances to assure the accuracy of our optical-scan voting machines. Perry strongly believes that, in the age of Russian interference in our elections, such a system needs to be legislatively created. Perry would work to maintain our right to vote, consistent with the New Hampshire Constitution; sponsor legislation to create an independent redistricting commission to end legalized voter fraud that currently exists through gerrymandered geopolitical districts; green energy and green jobs; health care for all; and fair and equitable funding of public education.

Phillips is committed to fair and equitable public education, as well as affordable health care for all. She is campaigning for a Family Friendly Economy, which supports affordable childcare, paid family leave and a livable wage for New Hampshire families. She will provide strong support for veterans and military families.
Ellen and Bob would make a great team to represent Strafford and New Durham in the New Hampshire House!
