An expert in business taxes, Deborah Wheeler spent years working for the New Hampshire State Department of Revenue before taking an early retirement in 2002. She had hoped to work longer, but, as the youngest in a family of 10, she found herself in the role of caretaker to her older siblings and ailing husband. Ms. Wheeler was eventually approached to run for office because of her involvement in the union and her active role in helping children. She is currently serving her third term with the New Hampshire General Court, and is inspired by her idol, Hillary Clinton.
Ms. Wheeler feels that her success in office stems from her ability to listen to the needs of her constituents, fight for what she feels is right, and get the job done. She hopes to be remembered for doing a lot for her fellow citizens and for working on legislation that positively impacts quality of life without any thought to personal gain.
Looking forward, Ms. Wheeler would like to stay healthy, and anticipates another term in office with the support of her new husband and constituents. She intends to continue her service to help children and people with disabilities. In the future, Ms. Wheeler hopes to see better cooperation between all of the parties and more reaching across the aisle. She registered to run for her fourth term on June 2, 2016.
