Dennis Lamare was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 21 of the New Hampshire State Senate.


Lamare was born and raised in Newport, New Hampshire. Upon graduating from high school in 1974, he attended Boston University for two years and then returned home to care for a brother who was suffering from psychological problems in the aftermath of the Vietnam war. He has worked as a dishwasher, tree trimmer, construction worker, restaurant manager, stock broker, and most recently, as an independent insurance agent.[1]


Campaign themes


Lamare's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Gas tax

  • Excerpt: "The recent gas tax increase is an unnecessary burden on the working family. Its projected to have an increase cost of $450 per year ($40/mo). This may not seem like much, but it make a difference in the choices a family will have to make who are on a limited budget. Less oil/heating fuel, less college savings, less fuel to get to work, one less meal...I propose to sponsor a bill to repeal this tax."

Health care

  • Excerpt: "Common sense approach is to have the health care industry open to competitive market, cross state lines, competitive bidding and let pricing be set by demand. I am open to options that make coverage fair, affordable and beneficial to both sides."


  • Excerpt: "I oppose Common Core Curriculum and want decisions made on content and standards directed at the local level."


  • Excerpt: "Reviewing and repealing the impediments to economic growth are incentives to strong economic growth. I will work hard to keep the jobs we now have and attract new business to the State to make available well paying, satisfying jobs."
