Hello friends and neighbors across New Hampshire, and especially the residents of Auburn, Candia, Chester and Deerfield. My name is Terry Roy and I am your Representative in Concord for Rockingham County District 31. I just completed my second term and would be honored if you sent me back for a 3rd. I began this term as the Vice Chairman of the Committee on Executive Departments and Administration. Effective July 29, 2021, the Speaker of the House reassigned me to be the Vice Chairman of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee where my life experience and skills were put to better use, particularly all things related to the 2nd Amendment and law enforcement. Prior to these leadership roles, I served as a regular member of both committees.
I am also a member of the Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules and a member of the Joint Committee on Employee Classification.
In June 2021, I was humbled to be elected by my peers as the Chairman of the bipartisan General Court Veteran's Interests Caucus which brings together legislators of both parties, who are either veterans themselves or who just care about helping our veterans. This is done through legislation and assisting them to navigate the red tape of governmentt and helping them get the assistance and benefits they have earned. As a 100% Disabled US Army Veteran myself, I enjoy nothing more than being able to help my brother and sisters in arms. Additionally, I serve as a Major in the Legislative Wing of the New Hampshire Civil Air Patrol, which is an Auxiliary to the United States Air Force and assists in delivering supplies and search and rescue operations during emergencies.
Since I joined the United States Army at the age of 17, I have built a life in public service. After serving in West Germany during the height of the Cold War era and then on through the end of the Persian Gulf War, I went on to serve in both municipal law enforcement and state regulatory enforcement in the fields of education and medicine. I have been a youth religious education teacher in my church and a leader in the Explorer Scouts. I have coached my children’s basketball, football and baseball teams as well. Due to the severity of the injuries, I received while serving our country, I was forced to retire several years ago and became a stay-at-home dad to my youngest, a now 17 year-old son who will be starting his senior year in high school this fall. Though being a disabled vet has challenged me physically, I strive to continue to find new ways to stay involved and make our community a better place to live for everyone.
I consider myself to be a Constitutional Conservative, which simply means that I believe the Constitution means what it says, and if you do not like it, you take the prescribed steps to amend it. You do not make laws at either the Federal, State or local level to circumnavigate it. I believe in individual freedom and responsibility. I will fight until my dying breath to keep the residents of this State free of unnecessary government interference and to make sure that it operates within the boundaries established by the State and Federal Constitutions.
I serve at the pleasure of you, the voters. I have no agenda other than that which you ask for. I am your representative and will continue to be your voice and advocate in Concord.
If you're able to support my campaign, the funds will be used to help getting out my message and the vote in the coming election. It is not enough that I win. We were able to achieve many great victories in the previous two years but there is more yet to do. We were limited in many cases by our very slim majority and unfortunately, some Republicans who seem to have lost their way and all too often voted with the Democrats. These representatives will be facing primary opponents this cycle and I will be helping their challengers. With your help achieving a true Republican majority and expand on our achievements in the areas of school choice, bail reform, lower taxes and less regulation are within reach. Together we can do it.
