To the Editor:
I am honored and humbled to be a candidate for State Rep- resentative District 10: Bristol and Bridgewater. I fell in love with New Hampshire during my childhood visits to my extended family on my mom’s side. The outdoor adventures—hiking, kayaking, and swimming—reso- nated with me, and I have spent the last decade advocating for the protection of our environment, so that future generations con- tinue to benefit from the peace- ful escape it provides. These are trying times and I am eager to meet with constituents—lifelong residents and newcomers alike— about their concerns and visions for our district.
As a rising third-year law stu- dent at the University of New Hampshire School of Law, I

 care deeply about the three Es: education, environment, and economy. Like so many people across demographics and party lines, I believe the State Legisla- ture needs to increase its invest- ment in public education instead of relying on local property taxes; with one-third of students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in different states, I hope to retain local talent. Providing free public higher education for at least two years will greatly reduce the av- erage student debt, hovering at around $39,000.00. To that end, I believe our zoning laws need modernization, moving away from minimum lot sizes that in- centivize single-family homes towards more community-based living. With greater connectivity via electric buses from our dis- trict to Concord and increased
broadband, young people will feel empowered to make roots here. Small businesses, as I’ve been told, cannot fill their job vacancies. This smart and sus- tainable development need not sacrifice the small-town charm we all love. Legalizing and taxing cannabis—an elective tax—will generate funds for these progres- sive initiatives. This is where tra- dition meets progress.
Through community organiz- ing, I believe in a more promising tomorrow. I hope that younger people, those who have just
turned or are about to turn 18 years old, will exercise their fran- chise their vote so they can de- termine their futures. We need to work to live, not vice versa, which is why I believe in increased tax credits from the state so that peo- ple can invest in clean energy, such as electric cars and solar panels for their homes, which will ultimately reduce costs; I believe in increasing the minimum wage to a livable wage and providing early childhood care and paid family leave; I believe in commu- nity gardens and greenhouses, and lifeguards on Cummings Beach, so that parents can trust that students receiving swim les- sons are safe. As an openly gay man, I understand the impor- tance of creating safe spaces in all environments, such as the classroom, and teaching inclusive and accurate histories of all mar- ginalized groups. These small yet effective changes can stimulate our local economy and promote emotional, physical, and social
In the weeks to come, I hope
to see you around town: at the lake and grocery store, on my runs, bike rides, and swims; at public forums with my Republi- can counterparts, where we can engage in the peaceful art of dis- agreement, an important feature of a healthy democracy. I plan to host a few meet-the-candidate events, so please check my web- site for more information: www. You can also reach me by email at tay- to ask me questions or join my campaign. I hope you will vote for me in the primary election on September 13, 2022 and in the general election on November 8, 2022.
All my best,
Taylor Largmann
