About Shana image
My name is Shana Potvin (you pronounce my first name Shay-nuh). I was born and raised here in New Hampshire, graduating from Manchester Memorial High School and Southern New Hampshire University. I am a wife and proud mom to two incredible kids.

I am running for State Representative to represent the town of Bedford and bring back balance to the State House in Concord. I am running because the people of Bedford deserve a representative that listens and values the advice, input, and issues of everyone in the community.  I am an empathetic, level-headed voice. I am someone who can create positive change for those of all ages, abilities, identities, and backgrounds. I am ready to tackle the real-world issues of the towns, families, schools, and small businesses across New Hampshire.

I believe that a strong community is built when residents become active and engaged.
I am:
  • An experienced leader in local nonprofit organizations.
  • A parent & volunteer in our schools - Past chair of Stand By Me & Destination Imagination Team Manager.
  • An active volunteer in our community - Current Co-Chair of the Bedford Democrats, former Chair of Bedford Energy Commission, served on Bedford Public Library Foundation.
