Marie McCourt for 2nd Hampshire District
“Voters in the 2nd Hampshire District will best be served by electing McCourt, whose understanding of the issues, skills as an advocate and compassion for less fortunate people will make her an impressive state representative.” - Daily Hampshire Gazette

Advocacy and Leadership

Marie has a long history of advocacy and community service, having worked locally and nationally for over 20 years.

"I began by volunteering at the Granby Marie at her Campaign Kick-offCouncil On Aging and working with my State Representative on elder issues. I continued my advocacy efforts by going to Washington D.C. to fight for research funding for diabetes."  Marie's volunteer service also includes the Women's Auxilliary for the Granby Fire Department, running a talent show to raise money for the grand piano at the Church of Christ, and being a Granby Lion.

Marie knew she wanted to work for her community in a more impactful way. When the Woman's Fund of Western MA offered a leadership course (LIPPI), she signed up immediately. 

"The LIPPI course gave me the confidence and tools I needed to be the leader I wanted to be. Since I graduated in 2012 I have been more active in the community and in town government, including being on many committees as well as elected to the School committee for 4 years, and on the executive board of the local food pantry."
