Jenn Alford-Teaster (NH State Senate-8)

“I believe in the potential of people and I feel like given the right resources, they can surpass their own expectations.”

On Nov. 6, 2018, Jenn Alford-Teaster fell just short of flipping a red seat blue in the New Hampshire state senate.

Jenn was a first-time candidate running for State Senate in New Hampshire. She is passionate about public health, education, and economic development.

A New Hampshire native, Jenn was raised by her grandmother and mother in a small Seacoast apartment. They struggled just to put food on the table; eventually her mother had to accept welfare and food stamps to support her four children. It was an experience that deeply influenced Jenn’s commitment to easing the burdens on families in need.
