Maggie Hassan

In 2004, Maggie was first elected to the New Hampshire Senate, winning one of the most competitive districts in the state.  During her six years in office, she was selected by her colleagues to serve as both President Pro Tempore and Majority Leader of the State Senate. Her focus was on keeping taxes low, job creation, balancing the budget, improving access to high quality and affordable health care, ensuring a quality education for every child, developing regional approaches to meet infrastructure needs, environmental protection and the development of a green economy. Because of her ability to get things done, in 2010 Business NH named Maggie one of the state’s most powerful people.
