New Member Spotlight: Rep. Joe Sweeney (R-Salem)

rep. sweeneyAs a freshman at UNH, Joe is extremely concerned about the economy and the availability of jobs after graduation.

He is very interested in state policy issues, especially the budget, and decided to major in Political Science. Joe is finding the legislature an incredible learning experience, particularly in Election Law, where he serves in committee. Everyone has been very accommodating so he can balance the demands of public service with his education.

Recently, Joe made headline news because of his efforts to raise money for the Boston Red Cross to help people who were impacted by the
events on Patriot’s Day. Like many of us, Joe simply felt, “I just had to
do something to help.”
