Why I’m Running to Serve the North Country

Why I’m Running to Serve the North Country

“I’m running for Congress to help rebuild the American economy so that it works for everyone. I will do this by fighting for the family sustaining jobs and healthcare our families deserve. I’ve devoted my long career in economic development to listening to what people need and helping them build the lives they want. We in the North Country need a leader who understands the North Country, who knows personally the needs of working families, and who has a track record and vision for creating jobs that put food on the table and money in the bank.”

-Emily Martz



The health and dignity of every person and the soundness of our economy depend upon a strong healthcare system, which includes access to quality, affordable healthcare for everyone.


Our communities and local economies have the power to create jobs that pay enough to put food on the table and save for retirement.

North Country Values

Our way of life, our environment, and the security of our country depend upon creating an economic system that works for everyone over the long-term.
