Maggie Hassan began her career in public service in 1999 when Governor Jeanne Shaheen asked her to serve as an advocate on the Advisory Committee to the Adequacy in Education and Finance Commission. Her experience as an attorney along with her role as the parent of two children, one of whom has severe disabilities, enabled her to provide a unique perspective as the commission did its work.
In 2004, Maggie was first elected to the New Hampshire State Senate, winning one of the most competitive districts in the state. During her six years in office, she was selected by her colleagues to serve as both President Pro Tempore and Majority Leader of the State Senate.
Maggie Hassan was first elected to be the 81st Governor of New Hampshire on November 6th, 2012. Governor Hassan was re-elected on November 4th, 2014.
On November 8th, 2016, Governor Hassan was elected to serve as the next United States Senator from New Hampshire. She was sworn in as New Hampshire’s junior Senator on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017.
