Sister District for Jenn Alford-Teaster (NH SD-8)

Sister District is proud to be supporting Jenn Alford-Teaster in her bid for the New Hampshire State Senate in District 8. New Hampshire is currently a trifecta state for the Republicans, which means they control the governorship, the state house and the state senate. In New Hampshire, the state controls redistricting, so even though the state went to Hillary Clinton in 2016, Republicans control majorities in both the state house and the state senate. Our goal is to flip the New Hampshire senate blue by flipping three seats blue. All 28 state senate seats are up for election in 2018.

A New Hampshire native, Jenn was raised by her grandmother and mother in a small Seacoast apartment. They struggled just to put food on the table; eventually her mother had to accept welfare and food stamps to support her four children. It was an experience that deeply influenced Jenn’s commitment to easing the burdens on families in need.

She also knows how to make a little assistance go a long way. At 18, Jenn moved alone to North Carolina with two suitcases and $265, and found a job at a coffee shop where she worked for the next decade. There were weeks when she had to choose between buying food and paying utilities; but with the help of her employers, who encouraged her to apply for financial aid, Jenn enrolled in the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where she earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees and met her future husband, Jason. 

What Jenn learned about resilience and self-sufficiency during those years has fueled her commitment to public service. Back in her beloved New Hampshire, she and Jason have built thriving careers and bought a home where they are raising their daughter. But for Jenn, being comfortable is not enough, not when many families in her community are in trouble—that's why she's running for office.
