Rep. Travis Bennett (D) – New Hampshire’s 8th District

Political advocacy and involvement is many times placed into the ‘future goals’ bucket for many millennials; however, with more Americans than ever looking for new ideas and leadership, there’s no better time to raise your hand. Travis Bennett launched the Plymouth State University Democrats organization, and in 2014, balanced classes, work, and a New Hampshire House of Representatives election on his way to winning the race in the 8th District.

The progressive Democrat has advocated for the environmental issues facing the communities of Hebron, Holderness and Plymouth which he represents, as well as given a voice to students at PSU who didn’t feel heard due to their more temporary status in the area.

One of the main factors in Travis’ decision to enter the political arena has been the current lack of recognition of the impact of governmental interaction with the society at large. Speaking on what led him to get involved, Travis said “Today… there needs to be some social structure in place to help citizens provide the basic framework in which society operates. When that’s not there, it’s pretty clear which states succeed and which states don’t.” With support for some drug decriminalization, greater educational funding, and criminal sentencing reform, we’re excited to see the results of Travis’ advocacy.

Last year, Travis Bennett won re-election to the New Hampshire House of Representatives, and has begun his second term. His NH Representatives bio can be found here, and you can keep updated on his plans on his Twitter and Facebook.
