Washington is broken. Only an outsider can fix it.
Jim Lawrence is a veteran, a graduate of the Air Force Academy, a small business owner, and a proud father of eight children. As a state legislator, he worked tirelessly to reduce the size of government, cut taxes, and promote liberty. His business is built on finding waste in government and eliminating it. Jim Lawrence will take his values and experience to a broken Washington, listen to the people of New Hampshire, and begin fixing the problem.
A message from Jim Lawrence:
Our forefathers fought to protect our liberties. The duty of our generation, like every generation, is to continue their fight to preserve our birthright as free Americans.
I was blessed with parents who modeled integrity, perseverance, and resilience in their work and life. They instilled in me a strong work ethic and a drive to achieve. My parents were both born and raised in the Bronx, New York. My father served in Vietnam and later became chief of personnel for the New York Police Department. My mother worked for IBM, rising to become an executive.
How I was raised shaped how I have lived my life. I have dedicated my life in public service, first as a member of America’s armed forces and later as a legislator, to the protection of liberty. I graduated from the United States Air Force Academy at the age of 21 and began my service in the military. At the age of 30, I was elected State Representative, serving three terms in the State House. During my time in the legislature, I fought to strengthen the economy and improve the lives of the people of New Hampshire. Fifteen years ago, I founded a small consulting firm that specializes in streamlining the federal government. I am proud of what we have accomplished: saving the taxpayers millions of dollars by eliminating waste, improving efficiency, and providing better services.
Two years ago, I saw a need for my experience and skills in Washington and ran for Congress in New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District. Despite entering the race late, we earned 20 percent of the vote in just 91 days of campaigning. I continue to believe that we need more voices in Washington who have experience making tough choices and will truly represent the interests of the taxpayers.
My greatest achievement, however, has been raising a family of eight children. As a parent, I remain committed to passing on the same love of country, work ethic, and values my parents instilled in me.
I am honored and humbled that so many people in this great state have asked me to once again run for Congress. As a veteran, small business owner, statesman, and—most importantly—a father, I pledge to work for you with the utmost integrity, perseverance, and resilience. My family and I are ready to take this on and make it a new day for you, the American people. Let’s unleash our potential!
