Teamster VP running for NH state rep

We're paying close attention to 19 political candidates who are Teamsters, used to be Teamsters or are close Teamster friends. Between now and Nov. 6, we'll be presenting one candidate a day to you, courtesy of Teamster Magazine. Read about other Teamster candidates herehereherehere, herehere and here.

Over the past two years, there has been an unprecedented attack on New Hampshire’s working people. 

John F. Murphy, a Teamster for more than 40 years, is one of many Teamsters who are tired of the attacks and running for office. As an international vice president on the Teamsters General Executive Board and as secretary-treasurer of Local 122 in Boston, Murphy is acutely aware of the threats to collective bargaining, health care and the middle class that are occurring across the country.

Murphy is running as a Democrat for state representative in Rockingham County, District 8, from the Town of Salem, N.H. 

Murphy’s campaign priorities are to defend collective bargaining rights in the public and private sector; invest in our children’s future by maintaining the best public education system; and fight for meaningful tax reform so senior citizens are not taxed out of their homes.
