Ben Ming for New Hampshire Senate District 12
My name is Ben Ming and I'm running for New Hampshire Senate District 12. I was elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives in November of 2022 to represent the Town of Hollis, and I currently serve on the House Judiciary Committee, where we consider bills pursuant to House Rule 31:
It shall be the duty of the Committee on Judiciary to consider all matters relating to the judicial system, right-to-know law, guardianships, life and death (such as abortion or assisted death), landlord/tenant rights, civil proceedings, tort law, forfeiture, immunity, and probate; and such other matters as may be referred to it.
I previously served on the Fish and Game Committee, where we considered bills related to hunting, fishing, trails and vehicles, and the conservation and preservation of those resources.
The best place to follow my State Rep. work will continue to be my public Facebook Page (facebook.com/benming4nh). Stay tuned for the best way to follow and help with my campaign in 2024! You can also find me as BenMingNH on Instagram, Threads, and X(Twitter).
The second year of the 2022-2024 term will be a busy one, but I'm grateful to be in the position to do some good in this State. Thank you to the Hollis community, everyone who helped me get here, and everyone who will help us take back the Senate.
I represent a community that contain strong and differing points of view, but comes together on many of the qualities that make it special: great schools, rural feel and beauty, and people that care for one another. While not everything I do in Concord will have an obvious connection to Hollis, the laws and policies I support will always be with consideration to how it will affect our town. You can always share concerns, comments, or other thoughts with me by email (Ben.Ming@leg.state.nh.us). Response times may vary, but I will attempt to answer questions either as a direct response or a post on my Facebook page.
Current Member of the Hollis, NH Planning Board
It has been an honor to serve the Town of Hollis on the Planning Board since 2016. The people who speak before the Board have had a great influence on my understanding of our Town. As a State Rep., I continue to listen to the concerns of our community.
Respect for the Law
One of the issues supporting my decision to run for office was professional pride. Seeing how the law has been so publicly disregarded by both legislators and lawyers did not sit well with me, and I knew that the path to our vision of the best version of Hollis and New Hampshire could not occur without legislators that would respect the law even if they didn't agree with it.
Four Kids in Hollis Public Schools
The next generation will either benefit or be harmed by the choices made today. Those choices affecting students and schools must be our top priority. We are fortunate to live in Hollis and our Town would not be what it is today if it weren't for sustained years of excellent public education. Our schools must be protected.
My inspiration and why I got into this fight for the future of Hollis and New Hampshire. It may surprise some that she is called terrible names more often than she is thanked for her service as a doctor. That's not just during the pandemic, and it's not just doctors. I understand what the past few years has done to our medical workers. It's time that we have a legislature that respects their commitment and expertise.
