New Hampshire Republican State Rep Switches Parties

September 17, 2021

New Hampshire state representative William Marsh is no longer a member of the Republican Party.

Earlier this week, the Brookfield resident announced that he is joining the Democratic Party. His reason:  he doesn’t like the positions his fellow Republicans take when it comes to the coronavirus vaccine and masking policies.

“I have come to realize a majority of Republicans, both locally and in the NH House, hold values which no longer reflect traditional Republican values. And so I am recognizing the reality that today’s Republican Party is no longer the party I first joined when campaigning for President Reagan many years ago,” Marsh wrote in a press release, according to The Hill.

Marsh, for example, supports mask mandates in schools — something the state did not implement this school year.

“As we all know, the combination of the infectious delta variant and waning immunity is causing Covid-19 to surge both in NH and throughout the United States. ICUs are filling up and younger people are getting sick and dying,” Marsh also said.
