Technology executive makes bid for 1st District
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A technology executive says he’s seeking the Republican nomination for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District in 2018.
WMUR-TV reports Bruce Crochetiere, of Hampton Falls, is founder and chairman of Focus Technology Solutions, a business technology consulting firm headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts, with offices in Nashua and Boston.
The 54-year-old Crochetiere says in a video he’s not a politician and believes a fresh voice from an outsider is needed. It’s his first bid for elective office.
Crochetiere joins two other Republicans to follow Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, who’s stepping down after her term ends. They are state Sen. Andy Sanborn of Bedford and former Liquor Commission Chief of Enforcement Eddie Edwards.
Eight Democrats are also running.
