Why I’m Running to Serve the North Country

Why I’m Running to Serve the North Country

“I am running because I want to live in a just world, a world where everyone has the opportunity to realize their full potential. But the ever-widening wealth gap is destabilizing our economy and society and leaving people behind. We can fix this with leaders who focus on common sense solutions to real problems. I’ve devoted my long career in business to hearing what people need, helping them build the lives they want, and helping businesses and the clean energy sector in our region expand. I’ll use this experience and my strong determination to help our communities build family sustaining jobs, get everyone access to quality healthcare, and continue being the responsible stewards of the land that we are.”

-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.


After over 20 years in economic development, I know jobs. I know how to build them, and I know how to keep them. Our communities and local economies have the power to create family sustaining jobs if we work together.

North Country Values

Like most of us in the North Country, I was raised to work hard, earn what I need, and help others along the way. These are the values that will shape my policies and platforms.

  • The health, and well-being of our environment, our way of life, and the security of our country depend upon conserving our natural resources and curbing climate change.
