Ann McLane Kuster
NOW/PAC is proud to endorse Ann McLane Kuster (D) in her bid for the U.S. House of Representatives. Kuster is running for the seat from New Hampshire's 2nd congressional district.
Kuster is passionately pro-choice and has spoken out against the Stupak-Pitts Amendment. She worked with a coalition of health care providers to create the Medication Bridge Program that distributes free medication to New Hampshire families and seniors who cannot afford the high cost of prescription drugs. In addition, she successfully advocated ensuring access to the vaccine that prevents cervical cancer for women throughout New Hampshire.
Kuster has also worked to advance same-sex marriage in the state of New Hampshire. She supports pay equity and adequate child care for working mothers. She also supports adding class-based factors into affirmative action to ensure that all dimensions of diversity are represented.
Kuster received the 2004 Marilla M. Ricker Achievement Award from the New Hampshire Women's Bar Association, presented for achieving professional excellence, advancing opportunities for women in the legal profession, and performing exemplary public service on behalf of women. She also won the Athena Award for professional excellence, community service and assistance to women, and she has served on many non-profit boards across the state.
Kuster is challenging incumbent Charlie Bass, who won the seat in 2010 by a mere one percent of the vote over Kuster. NOW/PAC endorsed Kuster in her 2010 bid and could not be more excited about this endorsement and a victory in 2012.
