Ovide Lamontagne’s gubernatorial campaign announced the hire of veteran Granite State strategist Paul Collins as Campaign Manager.
“We are very pleased to announce today that Paul Collins will serve as our Campaign Manager,” said Lamontagne Senior Adviser Jim Merrill, “Paul is a seasoned leader whose years of high level management experience make him the ideal choice to oversee day-to-day campaign operations. Paul excels at the style of grassroots campaigning that Ovide is engaged in every day: earning support county by county, town by town, voter by voter. He is an outstanding addition to our team, and I look forward to working with him to spread Ovide’s pro-jobs message of economic renewal throughout New Hampshire.”
Collins added, “I am proud to join the Ovide for Governor team today. Ovide is a proven conservative and a tested leader we can trust. He is a man of experience and integrity, and the clear choice for Republicans and Independents who wish to deliver real change and reform to Concord. I am honored to get to work at electing him as our next Governor.”
Collins is a former Sununu staffer, both in the governor’s office and the White House, and went on to staff Senator John E. Sununu and Congressman Charlie Bass. Most recently, he served as the Senior Strategist for Jon Huntsman’s First-in-the-Nation Primary campaign.
