Is it legal to have your pca with you at campaign events? Can they campaign with me? Thank you. Great job. Running for state rep in NH here.
Sarah Blahovec
Thank you for the question! We're going to hold the questions until later on and so we encourage everyone to send them in on Zoom (also through the Q&A feature), Streamtext, and email (sarah@ncil.org)

How do you get the media to stop focusing on your disability and get them to focus just on your message?

I know this is a loaded question, but can you speak to your thoughts re: chronically ill staff or candidates as it relates to impact on hours they can realistically work each week? What steps do the campaign community need to take to make campaigns (both staffing them and running as a candidate) more open and accessible to the chronic illness community?

How would you advise someone who is a longtime community advocate and activist (local and statewide) who hasn’t had a paid position for a few years, but contributes thousands of hrs as a volunteer - the narratives I’ve seen from media of candidates always focus so much on their work (the paid work) how would y’all suggest addressing this?

A little more clear, I think…How do you answer “what is your job / profession / career - what do you do for a living?” if what you do is unpaid and therefore not considered work to most people
