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.
Lamare's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
- 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."
- 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."
