My Journey to Hollis and my New Mission
"My children led us to Hollis when they moved East back in 2011. My oldest son (a father of five) had retired from the US Marines and took a high tech job in nearby Massachusetts. At that point, the family here campaigned to have Nana Renee and Grand Pa Dave move nearby."
Upon further investigation, it became clear that Massachusetts was not an ideal place to relocate to as it was too much like California. Once Nana and Grand Pa found Hollis, they fell in love.
"I truly love everything about Hollis: the towering trees, the farmland, the neighbors, the lifestyle. i enjoy the dirt road that leads to our house and I especially love my John Deere tractor! But really, most of all I love the kindred spirits and friendship of the people of Hollis and i truly embrace the history and tradition of freedom, self reliance and responsibility for one's self, family and home in a supportive community, so characteristic of Granite-Staters.
I am awestruck by Monument Square and by the courage and bravery of the Minutemen, Hollis Citizens, all, who risked everything and marched to Concord Bridge to defend their homes and whip the finest army in the world. This is an inspiring legacy that Hollis must always treasure.
Our Community meetings and volunteer committees are special and an example of true democracy.
It is because of my special affection for Hollis that I am seeking your support for the office of NH State Representative for Hollis’ District 27."
