Rep. Joseph Krasucki for Senate District 13

Rep. Joseph Krasucki, a first-time Republican candidate for the Senate, is a current state representative from Nashua who is running to represent Senate District 13, which includes Nashua Wards 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 & 9 in Hillsborough County.

Rep. Krasucki, a Families First Pledge signer who voted with Cornerstone 95 percent of the time during his past term in the House, served as a member of the House Constitutional Review and Statutory Recodification Committee, where he played an important role repealing out-of-date laws by co-sponsoring and passing HB 1553.

Also within his past term in the House, Rep. Krasucki was a co-sponsor of HB 1477, an environmentally conscious effort that reclassified “spent material” so that it has to be processed before use, as well as HB 329, which requires parental notification before a teen can have an abortion.

In a campaign video, the senate candidate said his focus in the Senate would be to reduce the business enterprise tax, the business profits tax, the fees businesses pay and burdensome regulations to improve the environment for business development and job growth in New Hampshire. He also said he would try to find efficiencies in the education system to provide a quality education at a reasonable cost.

In media reports, Rep. Krasucki bemoaned the amount of money spent in senate races and said he was trying to win using his own money and knocking on doors.

In his personal life, the longtime Nashua resident is a retired chemist and engineer who used to work at BAE Systems. He has fathered five and is a grandfather of four.
