In an interview with WMUR political director Adam Sexton, Rep. Mark MacKenzie talked about why he’s running for Congress to represent New Hampshire’s 1st District:

“I’ve been a fighter all my life. I have done this work for over 40 years. My life has been about a life of service. As a firefighter in the City of Manchester for more than 20 years. I made that commitment. It’s a life of service.

“I continued that in working in representing workers. I led the largest labor organization in the State of New Hampshire, the most diverse in terms of the different sectors of the economy we represented.

“And all of that work was about making life better for working families in this state and in this country. That is my work… It was about working families and making life better for people.”
