Why I am Asking for Your Vote

I believe in civility, decorum, and standing on principle.

My name is Alexandria Knox. I am a student at Southern New Hampshire University and am studying to dedicate my life to helping our elected leaders and serving the people. I am running for the New Hampshire House of Representatives to represent Manchester in ward 10, because I believe we need a positive change in Concord. I believe too many of our elected officials have lost the ability to truly listen and work together to get things done for the people. I also believe there are too many elected officials and politicians that just serve for the power, for the title, and not for the right reasons. I want to be someone my constituents can trust, honorable, and someone that my constituents can always come to with their concerns. Labels are getting in the way of solving problems and coming up with real solutions. I am a Republican committed to solid conservative principles while ensuring those that need help are treated with respect and compassion. I am inspired by our elected leaders, and want to serve my constituents and give back to my community. We need professionals of integrity and problem-solvers in the state house. We all face challenges every day, and I believe we can overcome these challenges by working together in a respectful way and holding our elected officials accountable. Right now families are struggling with the high burden of paying extremely high tax bills, and business are suffering due to increased government regulation. Our young people are leaving due to lack of employment and bleak futures. We need leadership that understands fellow citizens and the struggles we all face in our daily lives. I am running to ensure freedom and constitutional principles are upheld while ensuring that our veterans, elderly, and those with special needs and illness are provided with the services they deserve while keeping taxes low and government small. I face the challenge of being born completely without sight, but my vision is clear for the people I am seeking to represent here in New Hampshire. That vision is that we return to opportunity, prosperity, government accountability where all constituents are heard and represented, and preserving our freedoms before they are lost. I believe there are times when compromise is needed, but only if that compromise is for the good of freedom, prosperity, and all people. It’s time to stand on principle, take action, and bring civility back to Concord. I am ready to serve you and would be honored to earn your vote.

Alexandria got started in politics because she knew she wanted to make a change for the better. Alexandria is unique because she was born three-months premature completely visually impaired. She hopes to empower others with unique challenges to discover their dreams and live their lives to the fullest. She was raised in a family that saw her as a normal person and not as a person with special needs. She believes that people with different abilities and unique challenges do not have to be limited to the low expectations society holds for them. She comes from a family with strong work ethics and conservative values. She was taught early in life about the importance of fiscal responsibility. Alexandria is running to improve New Hampshire’s economy, lower taxes so that Granite state citizens may live the American dream, and will work to help the business climate grow. She is excited to have this opportunity as a candidate. If elected, Alexandria will be a strong, compassionate advocate for her district in Concord. She especially hopes to help those with special needs live their dreams not through big government, but through individual choice and limitless possibilities. When Alexandria is not performing, volunteering, or studying, she enjoys adaptive skiing, volunteer activities, going out to eat, spending time with friends, motorcycle rides, going to the beach, spending time with her cat Sable, and reading.
