Rye Republican seeks 2nd term
Rye, NH (June 3, 2022) – This week, Republican Janet Stevens officially filed her paperwork to seek a 2nd term on the Executive Council.
“Two years ago, I walked into the Secretary of State’s office with a promise to bring commonsense, decency, transparency, and conservatism to the Executive Council chambers. I have delivered on these promises and I’m proud of the work accomplished on behalf of the communities in District Three and the state of New Hampshire.”
“Voters in District Three can continue to count on me to protect taxpayers and promote competition for state contracts, cast my vote for qualified agency appointees, support our businesses and economic development, stand with students and families who want educational choice, funding for clean water, advocate for expanded access to mental healthcare, and vote for judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, our civil liberties, and our elections.”
“Most importantly, I’ll continue to be a fighter for our communities and its families. There is no problem too big or too small for me to tackle on behalf of District Three families, businesses, school systems, or towns and cities. My role as an Executive Councilor is to assist my constituents as they navigate the portals of state government and help them acquire Federal and State grants that will propel their communities, businesses, or non-profits into a prosperous future. I’m excited to continue this work and I believe we have a very bright future for District Three.”
Councilor Stevens accomplishments have included:
- The acceptance and expenditure approval of $1.1 billion dollars of federal COVID-19 relief funds.
- The delivery of more than $39.2 million in American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (LFRF) to District Three including $12.8 million to the city of Portsmouth.

- The honor of proudly and properly vetting judicial branch and state agency nominees including New Hampshire’s Supreme Court Chief Justice, NH’s Attorney General, and Commissioners of State Agencies.
- Championing the $100 million InvestNH program to strengthen the New Hampshire economy and to develop housing for our next generation of workers.
