CONCORD, N.H. – Congresswoman Annie Kuster filed papers this morning with the New Hampshire Secretary of State, officially declaring her candidacy for reelection. Immediately following the filing, Kuster addressed supporters outside the State House.
In her remarks Congresswoman Kuster discussed her commitment to creating jobs and economic opportunity for all Granite Staters, fighting to ensure our veterans have the resources they need as they return to civilian life, and standing up for our seniors by protecting Social Security and Medicare.
“Granite Staters deserve leaders in Congress who will put aside partisan politics to stand up for their best interests,” said Congresswoman Annie Kuster. “Since taking office, I’ve had the opportunity to travel across the Second District to hear from Granite State small business owners, families, students, and so many others about what Congress can do to support their economic and personal success. Today I filed my intent to run for reelection so I can continue to work across the aisle and fight for the issues that matter most to us, from increasing jobs and opportunities for every Granite State family, to protecting Medicare, Social Security, and other programs our seniors and veterans rely on and deserve.”
Since elected in 2012, Kuster has established herself as a lawmaker committed to working across the aisle in Congress to get things done. In New Hampshire, she has hosted a series of career and opportunity fairs to connect New Hampshire employers with job seekers. She has also met with business owners and employees at over 30 companies around the state as part of her “Congress at Your Company” tour, and earlier this year she released a “Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Agenda” outlining how Congress can help Granite State workers and businesses succeed. During her next two years in office, Kuster will continue to prioritize measures to increase the economic success of hardworking Granite State families.
