U.S. House District 1 Election (NH): Frank Guinta
Frank Guinta is the incumbent Republican representative for New Hampshire's 1st congressional district.
Frank cut spending in New Hampshire and successfully fought for the city’s first tax cut in a decade and slashed municipal borrowing by 50%. As a result, Manchester’s economy grew and the Queen City became a better place to live.
His ongoing “Getting Granite Staters Back to Work” jobs initiative has been his top priority in New Hampshire. Through it, Frank has hosted job fairs in Rochester, Derry, Manchester (for military veterans and their families), and Portsmouth, plus a Women’s Conference, several Manufacturers’ Summits, Small Business Roundtables and other events designed to help more Granite Staters find good, middle class jobs.
Frank earned his Master’s Degree in Intellectual Property from Franklin Pierce Law Center (now the University of New Hampshire School of Law) in Concord. After marrying his wife Morgan, the young couple agreed New Hampshire was the perfect place to raise a family.
Since arriving in Congress last year, Frank has been actively fighting to protect programs that many Granite Staters rely on, such as Social Security and Medicare, and to safeguard them for future generations as well. He received the 60 Plus Association Award and the 2011 Standing Up for America’s Seniors Award, among others.
When Frank isn’t in Washington for House votes and committee hearings, he spends as much time as possible in New Hampshire staying connected to the people he represents. As a devoted dad, he always makes time for his young daughter Colby and his son Jack.
