Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig is seeking the Democratic nomination for New Hampshire governor, saying she will run with her record of winning tough elections and getting results.
Craig made history as the first woman elected mayor of the state’s largest city in 2017 and has been re-elected twice. In his campaign announcement Tuesday, he said he led the city to “unprecedented progress” in creating jobs, reducing violent crime and developing affordable housing. His campaign will focus on those issues, along with public education and protection of abortion access, Craig said.
“The same challenges we face in Manchester are faced by communities across the state,” he said in a statement. “Granite Staters deserve a governor who partners with cities and towns to address our shared challenges and deliver for families.”
