New Member Spotlight: Rep. Richard Meaney (R- Goffstown)

rep. meaneyIf you’re in Health and Human Services, you already know Rep. Richard Meaney, who is well known for doing his homework, showing up prepared, and asking the tough questions.

It’s an ideal committee for him to serve, and as a former Health Care Executive with a Master degree in Health Care Administration, he brings much industry knowledge to the tough policy debates. In fact, last week was his first time at the well, and he ably did so, speaking in support of HB271, stating that NH will not expand Medicaid.

When asked why he decided to serve, Richard replied, “I ran because it’s the right thing to do. I have a daughter and I want to make sure New Hampshire is a great place for her to live.”

Richard is a retired Army Officer and lives in Goffstown with his family. He has served as Chair of the Goffstown-Weare Republican Committee, and on the Goffstown Budget Committee and Planning Board
