Hello, my name is Caleb and I am a former member of the Hudson/Pelham delegation to the New Hampshire House of Representatives. I am a lifelong resident of the district; moving from Hudson to Pelham in 2016. I attended Alvirne High School graduating in 2015. While at Alvirne I was a member of the B Naturals, the school’s select jazz choir and was also a 4 year member of the Model UN club. I was also a boy scout in Troop 21 until I was 17. After high school I continued to pursue music professionally and presently play with the band Sturdy Moss based in Windham, NH. In addition, I have worked in landscaping and forest management first with Oakes Land Care and then with Beaver Brook Tree Farm, LLC. in Pelham. Presently I work as a graphic designer; creating advertisements, logos, and other graphics for individuals, organisations, and businesses. While working with various business owners and startups in New Hampshire I have been able to put to use my love of mathematics, economics, and design to help their companies grow and become centerpieces of their communities.
I did not become very politically active until I was 17 or 18. The first year I was eligible to vote was 2014 and that was when I decided that I should know who and what I’m voting for or against. Following that election I was even more curious about New Hampshire state politics. I reached out to representatives in my district and elsewhere in the state to learn more about what was going on in our State House and what I could do as a citizen to further policies that I wanted to change. I then started to volunteer with policy advocacy groups such as Americans For Prosperity and the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance. Eventually I decided that advocating policy, although helpful, was not the most direct way to affect change.
I ran for this office because New Hampshire desperately needed young, independent thinkers as apart of its government. I want to prove to my constituents that government can be restrained when they elect people who they know and trust. While in office, I worked every day to prove to my constituents that they come before partisan or special interests. Even after leaving office in 2018 I have still been active in Concord supporting policy that will reduce the scope of government and empower individuals to create, innovate, and succeed. I will always count myself among the tireless minority in safeguarding our freedom.
