Ethics. Integrity. Diligence.
Candace is not currently running for office, but still advocates for progressive values that will benefit the lives of the people of New Hampshire
As a mom of two and a registered nurse, Candace cares very much about children. She has experience in tutoring and substitute teaching, so she sees some of the issues from the teachers’ perspectives. Aside from work and family, Candace enjoys volunteering in the community: she has volunteered with Families in Transition, community events with faith-based organizations, and the Bookmobile. She has done community service projects four times in Africa, including building the foundation for a hospital in 1999, and serving as a RN in Mozambique with Nurses for Africa in 2019. She often attends peaceful protests about issues that deny people their civil rights. She is a card-carrying member of the ACLU, American Humanists Association, Southern Poverty Law Center, and Human Rights Campaign.
