Just a quick heads up: Andrew Edwards (D-Hills 26) and myself have taken up webmastering the Nashua City Democrats website. Consider this blog defunct if you haven't already.

Well, at long last I have finally returned to For those of you who aren't aware, the people of New Hampshire chose Fontas in '06!

I must say life has been busy in the past few weeks. To give a brief recap: the end of the semester has come and gone; complete with finals, end of the term papers, and extensive study sessions. I attended Legislator Orientation on Nov. 28th and 29th at the State House, Legislative Office Building, and the Upham-Walker House. I met a lot of legislators and state faculty that I look forward to working with in the future. They were all extremely nice, and I was amazed at how easily I was received. Finally, I attended Organization Day on December 6th at the State House where I was sworn in and officially became a member of the House of Representatives. Organization Day is essentially the first time the newly elected members of the House officially convene in their entirety for the first time. As the two youngest members, Andrew Edwards and I both led the House in the Pledge of Allegiance, which was an awesome (literally) experience in itself.

Here are some photos taken before the ceremonies:

Well that is pretty much it for the Organization Day/Freshman Orientation/School wrap up. To give you an idea of what my plans are for the near future, the first legislative session day is on January 3, 2007. I am definitely looking forward to it. I am also currently co-sponsoring two bills, so that in itself is exciting and I will keep you posted! As for you, look forward to an update on how my first legislative session day was! In the meantime, have a happy holiday!

After a brief consideration of the past few weeks, I have come to terms with the fact that I am truthfully an awful blogger. I apologize to all those who kept checking blog to see the same updates day after day and week after week.

But there is good news that comes with this blog post. For one, I am now a State Representative. No, that is not a joke, I won a seat in the election! So that is big news. Second, Andrew Edwards also won, which means I have some young blood (along with the veteran representative Scott Merrick) to accompany me in the State House. Furthermore, the Democrats now have a majority in the House of Representatives, the State Senate, and the Executive Council. That is huge and I'm looking forward to finally being in the majority come January.

Finally, I would just like to thank everyone for the encouragement and support over the past few weeks. None of this would have been possible without it.
