Carol Shea-PorterCarol is a graduate of Oyster River High School in Durham, and has a BA in Social Services and a Master's Degree in Public Administration from the University of New Hampshire. She taught politics and history, started a non-profit Social Services Agency, and worked in various political campaigns before running for Congress in 2006. She took a then-unheard of pledge not to take any corporate PAC or DC lobbyist money, and won because of all the volunteers who helped her succeed without that money. Carol is a great believer in the power of grassroots, and in Congress she worked with grassroots organizations on a number of pertinent issues. She spent 8 years in DC, and believes that the  major source of the dysfunction in Congress is money and what it does to the political process.
