On Tuesday, Democrat Kathleen Martins won the special election for state representative in Hooksett.
Her win last night was featured in this Huffington Post article for her ability to have flipped a historically red seat. As an SEA member, Kathleen ran on a commitment to advocating for worker’s rights and the SEA is proud to have endorsed and supported her candidacy.
Volunteers phone banked and canvassed in the weeks leading up to the election resulting in about a thousand Hooksett residents who cast their vote for her. Congratulations on this major win, Kathleen!
