Naomi Andrews Files for Congress
Concord, New Hampshire- Today, Naomi Andrews, joined by Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, her family, and supporters, filed as a candidate for Congress in the First Congressional District. Naomi Andrews and Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statements.
Candidate Andrews: “I am running for the United States House of Representatives. I’ve been honored to serve New Hampshire’s First District for over a decade as Chief of Staff and Campaign Manager for Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter. I want to continue serving the people of New Hampshire and I pledge to them that I will never forget that public office is a public trust.
I have legislative experience and I know how the House works, so I will hit the ground running on Day One. I will introduce legislation to help small businesses, soldiers and veterans, young adults and families, working men and women, senior citizens, and students. I know that education is the key to prosperity, that renewable energy is key to our economic future and our national security, and that when jobs are sent overseas, America suffers. Job creation and investing in America and our people are both good business decisions and good moral decisions, and subsidies for the wealthiest corporations leave Main Street and citizens holding the bill.
Our current Congress is passing legislation that favors special interests over people and small business. This must stop.
I am running because I want to keep America the land of opportunity and fairness for all of us.”
Congresswoman Shea-Porter: “When my friend, my Chief of Staff Naomi Andrews, announced she was running, I knew that was a game changer, and I am all in! Naomi was with me (and you) from day one of my first term, back in January 2007. She knows policy, she knows politics—she was my campaign manager for two of my winning elections—and she is a solid progressive. She's also one of the nicest people you will ever meet anywhere. She is running for the same reason I always ran—for the rest of us. Naomi is a natural leader, and she also has the experience to hit the ground on day one. I promise you, if you help Naomi Andrews get to Congress, her work and her voice will always make you feel hopeful for our future!
