Wolfeboro, N.H. — (May 21, 2020) — Disability and family advocate, Carrie Duran wants to earn your vote as she announces her candidacy for state representative of Wolfeboro. Carrie is a proud native of New Hampshire, a graduate of Kingswood Regional High School and an involved Wolfeboro community member. When asked why she is running for state office, Carrie said “I am running because I am mother. I am running because I want to lead the way in creating a safe, healthy and economically thriving community for my children. As the parent of a child with a disability, I am passionate about and ensuring inclusive educational and employment opportunities for our most vulnerable citizens. I have a much-needed perspective to give towards the issues facing our lower income families, especially during the time of Covid-19.”
The importance of volunteering and community involvement are values she hopes she has instilled to her three children. Thirteen-year-old twin girls, Marisole and Isabella and nine-year-old daughter Katie have witnessed their mom testify at many hearings at the New Hampshire State House. “My girls have accompanied me all over the state as I have served on various boards and committees to advocate for the needs of families and persons with disabilities. I am so fortunate to have their love and support.” Carrie states. Carrie currently serves her community by volunteering on the board of Northern Human Services, Lakes Region Community Developers and The Council on Developmental Disabilities, among others.
In her bid for State Representative for Wolfeboro, Carrie brings to the table a strong background in the hospitality and retail industries. For several years, Carrie was the facilitator for the hospitality program at Lakes Region Community Services and is a Certified Hospitality Instructor through the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute. “Our business community can feel confident with my knowledge and experience in this sector as I have been a manager for a large luxury hotel brand, a national restaurant company and an international retail company.” But Carrie feels perhaps waiting tables during the summer in Wolfeboro is her best experience calling card and is looking forward to when her girls are old enough to enjoy the same opportunity.
“I am committed to serving Wolfeboro with my experience and my unique perspective to the issues facing families, our local economy and our most vulnerable citizens. This time of national emergency has affected us all in ways we never could have imagined. Now more than ever we need diverse representation and I know I have the heart and determination to represent Wolfeboro in Concord. I humbly ask for your vote and I look forward to serving our community. Thank you.”
