Dear New Hampshire Democrats,

 

On behalf of the 19 members of the Platform Committee, I am pleased to present the 2024 NHDP Platform for your consideration.

 

Our goal was to create a values-based platform that candidates up and down the ballot can run on this fall and volunteers can also be proud of.  It is a platform that distinguishes us from Republicans and speaks to the major issue areas facing New Hampshire. 

 

These issues include:

  • Protecting Democracy and Voting Rights

  • Reproductive Rights and Comprehensive Health Care

  • Economic Building Blocks

  • Workforce: The Engine of our Economy

  • Education

  • Diversity and Immigrants

  • LGBTQ+ Community

  • Climate, Energy, and Agriculture

  • Public Safety and Justice

  • Fiscal Responsibility

  • Veterans and Military Families

  • First in the Nation Primary

 

We conducted six virtual listening sessions where we heard from Democrats all over New Hampshire.  We listened to your comments, took your ideas into  consideration, and updated the platform for this fall’s election cycle.

 

We hope you will be as pleased as we are with the result.  This platform got a unanimous vote from the committee, and after being  published as a draft on the NHDP website, had no amendments proposed.

 

We look forward to its adoption at the convention.  Now, go out and win!

 

Sincerely,

Deputy Senate Leader Cindy Rosenwald, Chair

Deputy House Leader Alexis Simpson, Vice-Chair

Assistant House Leader Brian Sullivan, Vice-Chair

Dear Fellow Democrats,

I hope this message finds you well and filled with pride for our collective efforts in shaping the future of our party and our nation. As we come together to celebrate the wide array of topics covered in the resolutions submitted for consideration, let us take a moment to reflect on the remarkable diversity of ideas, perspectives, and experiences that define our Democratic community.

From healthcare and reproductive rights to calling out Gov. Sununu and former President Trump, the breadth and depth of the resolutions underscore our commitment to addressing the pressing challenges facing our society. Each resolution represents a heartfelt commitment to building a more equitable, inclusive, and compassionate world for all.

In addition to honoring the incredible range of topics covered, I would like to take a moment to pay tribute to the 25 resolutions honoring Democrats who have passed away over the last two years. Their dedication to our party and our values will always be remembered, and their legacy will continue to inspire us as we carry forward their vision for a better tomorrow.

As we gather to vote on these resolutions, let us draw strength from the diversity of our perspectives and the unity of our purpose. Together, we have the power to affect meaningful change and create a brighter future for generations to come.

Thank you for your unwavering commitment to our party and our shared values. I look forward to the important work ahead and to the opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with you in the fight for progress.

Sincerely,
Resolutions Committee
Chair - Maura Sullivan, New Castle
Mike Rollo, Hopkinton
Walter King, Dover
KR Epstein, Manchester
Ellis Robinson, Grantham
Catherine Farkas, Sanbornton
Jason Telerski, Nashua

If you are a Delegate, you will be voting on all proposed NHDP Resolutions. Resolutions will be divided into multiple votes; the first vote will be on all memorial resolutions, followed then by individual votes on each other resolution. You can find the resolutions here:
