Personal Biography
5th term in the NH House
Represents Deerfield, Candia, and Nottingham.
The Derryfield School (Manchester, NH)
Southern NH University (Manchester, NH)

James lives in Deerfield and is a father of three children, all of whom are in the NH schools and UNH. He holds a BA in English from SNHU, and works as a Senior Technical writer and is a published author.

James is a life-long hunter, a competitive archer, and a current Board Member for the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA). He is committed to preserving and strengthening our 2nd Amendment Rights in New Hampshire, preserving the great American tradition of hunting, and ensuring that the game animals and their environment remain healthy so that every future generation can enjoy hunting New Hampshire.

With three children in the school systems in New Hampshire, James has deep concerns about the quality of education, and objects strongly to programs such as Common Core and other federally intrusive mandates. Decisions made locally are simply decisions that are better made! A quality education must include local control and parental choice.

James will also fight to keep New Hampshire a free and sovereign state by fighting intrusions and mandates from the federal government, especially when unfunded. The federal government is, by design, limited in its power. Therefore, states must never resign their sovereignty. States Rights are paramount to retaining liberty. James will discourage accepting any federal funding that comes with strings attached, and will not give in to threats from federal entities that require us to give up liberty to receive funds.

James is a proud member of the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR), working to show veterans and their families the unwavering respect they have earned. James believes the families of fallen heroes who have sacrificed so much for America should be able to attend funeral services and mourn without the disruption of unpatriotic protestors.
