Cindy Rosenwald – Ward 3
NH House of Representatives
7TH TERM

Representative Rosenwald will begin her 7th term in the 2017-2018 session.  During the 2016 session, Cindy also served as the Deputy Democratic Leader.    

The Nashua Telegraph ran the following posting for Cindy on October 27th, 2016:

A resident of Nashua for 28 years, Rosenwald is a retired college writing instructor, advertising vice president, and health care community relations associate. She has served six terms in the House and currently serves as the Deputy Democratic Leader.

I am asking the voters of Ward 3 to send me back to the House of Representatives so I can continue to work hard on their behalf to keep Nashua and the state of New Hampshire strong. I believe I have developed a reputation for hard work, responsiveness to constituents, pragmatism, the willingness to listen to all sides, and the ability to work across the aisle to solve problems and find innovative solutions that work for our state.

Over the past two years, I have been actively involved in legislation that increases funding and access to a range of programs and services to help solve our number one public health problem: the heroin and opioid crisis. This includes better insurance coverage for treatment and investments in supportive sober housing.

I have worked to fund drug courts, make sure our health care providers have access to complete patient information as a basis for informed opioid prescribing and ensure that local law enforcement has the necessary resources to combat drug crime. Having worked on three state budgets, I understand the need to balance fiscal prudence with investment in essential programs and services necessary for a robust economy and vibrant communities.”

 

THE 2015 / 2016 SESSION:

Cindy serves as Deputy Democratic Leader in the House.  This is the House’s #2 Democratic position, working with the Democratic leader on all policy and political issues.
Want to know Cindy’s views on the 2016 – 2017 state budget?  This link will take you to her most recent opinion which appeared in the Concord Monitor and Laconia Daily Sun.  This link is to an earlier Guest Commentary in The Telegraph.  Both represent the views of many Democratic legislators.
Cindy was a member of both the Finance and Rules Committees.  On Finance, she served on Division 3, which is all health and human service funding.   Last term, she was Vice Chair of Finance and Chair of Division 3.
Medicaid expansion continues to be a high priority.  It currently has nearly 50,000 enrollees and must be re-authorized by this legislature if it is to continue.  This program is fundamental to providing access to substance abuse treatment services.

This year, Cindy served on the Joint Task Force on the Heroin and Opioid Epidemic.  She sponsored HB 1423, which requires health care licensing boards to set comprehensive rules for prescribing opioids for treatment of pain.  Governor Hassan signed the bill into law in June.  Cindy also co-sponsored SB 533, which increased funding for drug treatment services and supportive sober housing.
