“New Hampshire deserves a Leader in Congress who will fight for us.”
Dover, NH - Eddie Edwards, former chief of police for the town of South Hampton and former Chief of New Hampshire State Division of Liquor Enforcement, announced his campaign for Congress today in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District.
“New Hampshire deserves a Leader in Congress who will fight for us. We need a strong conservative who will stand on principle and represent the people, not the Washington special interests.
“Over the course of the campaign, I will be traveling throughout the district, listening to voters, and offering my vision for positive solutions to bring new jobs to New Hampshire, cut taxes and reduce the size of government, strengthen national security and provide for our veterans, reduce the burden of student loan debt, and fight the opioid epidemic.
“Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is outside of the mainstream of New Hampshire politics. She’s beholden to a small group of special interests in Washington whose goal is simply obstruction and delay. There’s a job to do, and she’s busy playing partisan games. I’ll get to work for the people of New Hampshire.”
Throughout his career as a public servant, Edwards has been credited with building critical partnerships necessary to bring people together.
Edwards continued: “Some of my proudest moments throughout my military and law enforcement career have come when I stood up for what was right and defended the Constitution of the United States. Often, the integrity it takes to do so is challenging, but the rewards of doing so are priceless.”
Eddie Edwards served as the chief of police for the town of South Hampton and as Chief of new Hampshire State Division of Liquor Enforcement. Under his leadership the Division became New Hampshire’s first statewide law enforcement agency to receive the distinction of Advanced National Law Enforcement Accreditation.
A navy veteran and graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia, Edwards spent a career in law enforcement before moving to the private sector and launching a business working with small businesses to help reduce regulation and cut through red tape.
Throughout his career, Edwards has worked to address the problems of substance abuse. As director of enforcement and licensing for the New Hampshire State Liquor Commission, he worked to reduce substance misuse and abuse. He has served on numerous boards across the State of New Hampshire focusing on Public Health, Public Safety, Veterans, Children, Education, and Substance Abuse Disorder.
Edwards, an officer and a gentleman, will serve the constituents of NH-01 with honor.
