Tim Schofield is a progressive leader who will be a strong voice and advocate for working people. He knows that government has a role to play in creating jobs, assisting small businesses and providing fair and open opportunities for everyone.
Working Class Roots
Tim understands the struggles of working families. He is the youngest of eight children from a working class family. Tim was born in Cambridge, went to public schools and, with the help of the G.I. Bill and student loans, was the first in his family to go to college, graduating from the University of New Hampshire.
