My name is Christopher Lins. Most people call me Chris. Many know me as “Coach Chris” with Bow Youth Lacrosse (5th/6th-grade boys). I am an Ohio native though NH has been my home since 5th grade.
I am a 1984 graduate of Concord High School, a 1989 BSEE graduate of Northeastern University, and a 2019 graduate of the Tuck Advanced Management Program. My wife, Jennifer, and I enjoy a blended family of 8 (2 hers, 4 mine). I am presently Vice President and General Manager – Americas, on behalf of Powerbox USA, Inc.
I am a two-time colorectal cancer fighter. Those who have been touched by cancer, or who know someone who has, know that it changes you. It blesses us and strengthens our resolve; it makes you a fighter, unlike many other life experiences!
I was inspired to run for public office in response to the Merrimack: District-23 State Rep special election on June 8, 2021. At the time, the two seated House members did not represent my moderate to conservative values. I could no longer remain on the sidelines and merely talk about what concerns me, so I decided to do something about it with unanimous encouragement from my friends, family, and neighbors. I have spent the better part of 32 years preparing for the opportunity to deliver inspired leadership for durable change on behalf of our community at the State House in Concord. While we did not prevail in this special election, we made significant progress and our campaign presses onward in pursuit of victory in the November 2022 mid-term elections!
During the special election campaign, I met many voters who agreed with our message of balanced representation in our district. Then, as now, conservatives and conservative-leaning moderates in Bow and Dunbarton do not have a voice in Concord. When we prove victorious in November 2022, I will immediately set to work on the following initiatives:
I am not running to change the world. I am running to provide solid, right-of-center leadership for our world – Bow and Dunbarton – and the great state of NH!
If what I have shared resonates with you, I would be honored if you would color the bubble on your ballot next to my name, Christopher S. Lins, on election day in November 2022!
Your Values, My Voice!
