Rep Jim Maggiore
Municipal and County Government
Rockingham District - 22
After serving one full term on the North Hampton budget committee, Jim was elected to the North Hampton select board in 2011. He is currently serving in his 4th term and is the board chair. Jim is the select board representative to the planning board, heritage commission, and water commission. As an advocate for local control of municipal affairs, fiscal responsibility, protecting natural resources, and transparency in government, Jim was naturally drawn to the House Municipal and County Government Committee. Municipal and County Government is responsible for all matters pertaining to town, city and county officers including: the boundary lines of towns, creation of new towns, cities and counties, local revenue, fees, property taxes and exemptions; and such other matters. Jim made an immediate impact on the committee writing several majority reports and speaking on the floor in support of Committee positions.
In addition to his responsibilities to the NH House and North Hampton select board, Jim serves as the vice-chair of the New Hampshire Municipal Association (“NHMA”). The NHMA is a non-profit, non-partisan association that works to strengthen New Hampshire cities and towns and enhance their ability to serve the public.
Jim is extremely proud and humbled to be elected by the NHMA board of directors as their representative to Governor Chris Sununu’s Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion in 2018.
Born and raised on Long Island, NY, Jim earned his BA from Stonehill College in 1990. He has lived in North Hampton for 23 years with his wife Melanie, children Casey, Josie, and Matthew, and his golden retriever, Tebow.
