In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Avard served on these committees:
Avard's campaign website highlights the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Free Market competition is a combination of the passion of the human spirit and the drive to create a better life for one’s family. People have the innate right to be free and because of this, they have a right to create goods and services in an environment that supports them instead of stifles their creativity. Instead of lining the streets of gold with red tape, we should be creating better roads, paved with the future of the successful New Hampshire citizens. This means cutting the red tape of paperwork and legal roadblocks, to allow the citizens of New Hampshire to prosper."
- Excerpt: "One of the most important roles our government plays, is the protection of our rights. In New Hampshire we can see a role back on our freedom of speech, protest, and even our religious freedom. The importance of self-expression cannot be overstated. The citizens deserve to have all of their rights protected by the government, whose central duty is to secure these rights."
- Excerpt: "Promises are made by the government every day, and all of those promises have a dollar value. As a man of integrity, promises mean something to me. Government needs to slow down and honor their commitments. Right now, government has two issues, limited time and limited resources. Government needs to lift regulation off industry. This will allow more efficient solutions to come to the aid of New Hampshirites and this will free the government up to turn their time and money to the protection of citizen’s rights."
Elections for the office of New Hampshire State Senate will consist of a primary election on September 9, 2014, and a general election on November 4, 2014.

Avard ran for re-election in the 2012 election for New Hampshire House of Representatives, Hillsborough 28. Avard advanced past the September 11 primary and was defeated in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
