Manchester, NH - Today, Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig was re-elected by a decisive victory. Last month, Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund PAC endorsed Craig, the first woman mayor of Manchester, citing her consistent support of inclusive reproductive rights and health care. As Mayor, Craig has opposed the Title X gag rule, supported patient safety at the Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) Manchester health center, and supported Medicaid expansion. 

Manchester is home to PPNNE’s flagship health center in New Hampshire, and the non-profit organization has served every neighborhood in Manchester for decades, providing reproductive and sexual health care and education. Last year, the health center saw nearly 5,000 patients. Mayor Joyce Craig’s re-election will help ensure that PPNNE’s patients can continue to access the health care they rely on, including birth control, STD testing & treatment, well-person exams, gender affirming care, and abortion care. 

Statement from Kayla Montgomery, VP of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood NH Action Fund:
“At a time when access to reproductive health care is at risk across the country, it has never been more important to elect leaders like Joyce Craig to city hall and every level of government, who will fight to ensure everyone has access to the care they need. By re-electing Mayor Joyce Craig, Manchester voters have sent a clear message that they want a mayor who is a champion for everyone in their community, including women, lower-income people, youth, and the LGBTQ+ community. Tonight we congratulate Joyce Craig on her re-election as Manchester Mayor and thank her for her unwavering dedication to protecting reproductive health care and fundamental human rights in New Hampshire’s Queen City.”
