WINDHAM— Kristi St. Laurent of Windham officially filed with the Secretary of State to run for New Hampshire’s 19th District Senate seat. The seat recently opened with the retirement of Senator Rausch and covers the towns of Derry, Hampstead and Windham.
“It is the job of a State Senator to get real results for the people of their district and not get bogged down in ideological battles,” said St. Laurent. “Granite Staters in District 19 deserve a State Senator to represent them with a common sense, independent, and pragmatic approach to legislating. I will be that Senator.”
St. Laurent is a former resident of Derry, graduate of Pinkerton Academy, and has lived in Windham for the past fifteen years with her husband Rob and three children. She is a Physical Therapist by training, with a Masters of Science degree and more than 20 years of professional experience. Currently, she practices at Northeast Rehabilitation Hospital in Salem.
St. Laurent is in her second elected term on the Windham Planning Board and is currently serving her second year as Chair.
“The exploratory committee was a great first step. That initial chance to hear from voters about their concerns before they are framed by the campaign season was revealing. It also confirmed the decision that this is the right time for a St. Laurent for Senate campaign,” St. Laurent added.
