Meet the NHYR Executive Board
(2007 - Present)
|Elected on April 21, 2007 at the NHYR's Annual Convention by its members, Kerry Marsh will begin her first term as chairman of the state wide organization. Running on the pledge to grow this organization for the 2008 election cycle, Kerry envisions a NHYR group that is active in New Hampshire politics at all levels, but also takes the time to have some fun at social gatherings and YR sponsored events.
In 2003, Kerry graduated Summa Cum Laude from Keene State College with a BA in Economics and minors in Political Science and History. Kerry’s political experience began as a volunteer for the McCain for President Campaign in 2000 and volunteer for former Senate President Tom Eaton’s first and successful campaign. It was a special election that no one thought the Republican in a Democratic stronghold could win, but through strong grassroots efforts and a lot of help from Young Republicans across the state, Tom Eaton beat a well known local Democrat for the seat.
|Kerry’s first professional political experience was as the Deputy Field Director for the Keough for Governor campaign in 2002. Her work earned her the NH Young Republican’s 2003 Gipper Award for the outstanding Young Republican of the year.
In January of 2003, Kerry became the youngest GOP County Committee chairman in the history of New Hampshire when she was elected to lead the Cheshire County Republican Committee at the age of 21.
After graduating from Keene State College, Kerry joined the NH House of Representatives’ Majority Office staff working as a Legislative Assistant to Speaker Gene G. Chandler.
Most recently, her leadership positions included Vice Chair of the Vesta Roy Excellence in Public Service Series Board of Governors (2005-2007) which is a program that provides leadership training to Republican women; and is currently the Secretary of the Merrimack County Republican Committee.
Kerry is currently employed at Spectrum Marketing Companies in the Political Division.
