About Steve

I’m Representative Steven Smith, currently serving Acworth, Charlestown, Goshen, Langdon, Lempster, and Washington in Sullivan County, NH District 11.  Due to redistricting, I am running to represent District 3 (Charlestown, Newport, Unity). I will continue fighting for low taxes, fiscally responsible government, and common sense solutions to everyday problems.

Deputy Speaker of the NH House of Representatives

Appointed by Gov. Hassan, reappointed by Gov. Sununu to represent the NH Legislature on the NH Governor’s Interagency Council on Homelessness for 4 years – http://www.nhceh.org/nhich

Chairman of House Transportation Committee for 4 years

I am an Eagle Scout and father.  Our family has a small hobby business racing and selling slot cars.

I moved to New Hampshire over 30 years ago in search of a better life for my children.  Over the course of those 30 years, I’ve seen many influences chipping away at that unique New Hampshire way of life.  One of the reasons that I ran for re-election is to protect that New Hampshire way before it is too late.  You ought to be able to do an honest day’s work, and earn a decent living.

I currently work as a Realtor.  Prior to that I was a trainer at TeleAtlas/ Tomtom delivering and developing curriculum for adult education.  Prior to that I worked at Claremont Foundry. I ran a shot blast machine and climbed around down in the pit shoveling hot sand.  I’ve worked in woolen mills and book binderies.  Early in life I was a mechanic/cement mason at a cement company.  We made cesspool rings and nuclear waste containers.  I’m a pretty well rounded person in terms of life experience, and I know what it’s like to work hard for every dime you have.

We have some serious issues facing us, that aren’t going to fix themselves.  Manufacturing in New Hampshire is dying.  Jobs and companies were leaving the state.  Money was leaving the state.  We have made some progress towards reversing this trend, but there is more work to be done.

I came to New Hampshire because I knew that I’d be able to find a job and an affordable place to live. I went to Newport where I got a job at Arlington Sample, and an apartment on Laurel St.

I thank you for your support.  I have always remembered that my first responsibility is to serve the district.  I try to answer all letters, emails, and phone calls.  With a district this large, I can use help from point people in each town.  If you are interested in helping me, please contact me. I will continue to work to make government once again work for us.  Let me help bring the power back to you, and your neighbors.  It isn’t just the New Hampshire way, it’s the American way.

    Mr. Smith; I much appreciated your work keeping us updated on the Rt 12 repair (fiasco?) timetable. I feel you have given us good service in your position. With the receipt of my latest bill from the NH Elec Coop, which doubled, I hope your next missions will include immediate action to investigate and reverse these rate hikes. Just the increase in this billing will consume 10% of my monthly retirement income. i suspect you will be hearing from many folk about this. i certainly hope so.

    thank you
    Ken Corcoran
