Thank you!

To everyone who supported my candidacy, thank you! On Tuesday, November 17th, we had a recount for Hillsborough district 4. The results were confirmed, with a few minor changes in overall vote counts. Congrats to my “running mate” Lisa Post on her election. Thank you to everyone who helped us!


I am proud to be endorsed by Americans for Prosperity New Hampshire. AFP stands for worker freedom and economic vibrancy.

I am one of only 2 NH House candidates endorsed by AFP who has not previously served as a State Rep.

Check out the announcement here.

If you live in Wilton, Lyndeborough, Greenville, or Francestown, I am asking for your vote. Let’s make New Hampshire’s economy even stronger!


As a life-member of the NRA and a strong advocate for the 2nd Amendment, I am proud to have received an A rating (“AQ”, which indicates an “A” rating based on questionnaire responses).

ENDORSED by Bill O’Brien

I am pleased to announce that Bill O’Brien, former Speaker of the New Hampshire House, has endorsed me. Here is Bill’s full statement:

“Few come to their first campaign for state representative with the statewide prominence of Jim Kofalt as an advocate for New Hampshire and its traditions for effective, conservative government.  I endorse Jim in his campaign because those of us who are fighting for fiscal responsibility, limited government, protection of our liberty and constitutional rights need Jim in the Statehouse as an ally and leader in that cause.”

ENDORSED by Dave Wheeler

I am pleased to announce that former (and hopefully future) Executive Councilor Dave Wheeler has endorsed me. Dave and I believe in the same things: lower taxes and smaller government, personal freedoms, and religious liberty.

We share a strong commitment to the 2nd Amendment and to protecting human life. Please join me in voting for Dave on Tuesday September 8th.

Low taxes are the result of low spending.

Families throughout our state know what it means to make tough decisions when it comes to their family budget. We all need to live within our means, and state government should be no exception.

Former NH Governor Mel Thomson famously said that “Low taxes are the result of low spending.” It seems obvious, but too many of the state representatives currently in Concord seem to have missed the point.

In the legislative session that just ended, Democrats in Concord have pushed for an income tax, disguised as a “family leave” bill. If it had passed, workers throughout the state would have seen less take-home pay with every paycheck.

Both of my Democrat opponents voted for the income tax (HB712). That bill passed, and it would have become law if not for the fact that Governor Chris Sununu vetoed it.

I pledge not to vote for any new taxes. Period. No income tax. No sales tax. No tax increases or new taxes at all.
