I have 26 years of New Hampshire based business, charitable and government experience, including serving as chairman of the State Board of Education, chairman of the Board of St. Mary’s Bank – a three-quarters of a billion dollar financial institution – and as a business lawyer, shareholder and member of the management team at Devine, Millimet and Branch, one of the largest law firms in New Hampshire.
If elected I would be the first New Hampshire citizen of French-Canadian descent to serve as governor and the first active snowmobiler since Mel Thomson.
I was named Distinguished Citizen of the Year by the Boy Scouts of America in 2009 and Conservative of the Year by AFP-NH in 2011.
