Sen. Chuck Morse is serving his fourth term in the New Hampshire Senate representing District 22, which includes the towns of Salem, Atkinson, Plaistow, and Pelham. Sen. Morse was recently elected the 128th President of the state Senate and is the fourth lawmaker in Senate history from Salem to be given this distinction by his colleagues.

During his time in the Senate, Sen. Morse has been responsible for writing three state budgets as Finance Chairman. The Republican budget in 2010 was the first to cut state spending since World War Two and by doing so righted the state’s finances and closed an $800 million budget deficit.

The 2013-2014, which passed almost unanimously through the legislature, continued those principles by controlling spending and not raising taxes. The budget also protected conservative policy initiatives such as the school choice scholarship tax credit program and business tax reforms designed to improve New Hampshire’s economy.

Prior to the Senate, Sen. Morse served in the New Hampshire House of Representatives and as a town moderator and selectman. Away from the State house, he is President of Freshwater Farms & Garden Center in Atkinson and Granite Creek Farms of Brentwood, and he is active with the Salem Boys and Girls Club and the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce.

A graduate of Plymouth State University, Sen. Morse lives in Salem with his wife, Susan and their daughter Emma.
