As a native of New Hampshire living on the state’s coast, Mark McLaughlin serves as No Labels’ state co-chair.
Mark says, “The idea we could have a third option in this 2024 election is really important. We know from the presidential records of both Biden and Trump who they are, and 70 percent of the country feels like we need a third option. Why not give it to them?”
After earning his undergraduate degree in human biology from Stanford University and a master’s degree from Northeastern University, Mark has worked at the U.S. Geological Survey in the field of oceanography, studying sea urchins.
Now teaching math and science to prisoners in the state, he says his best work involves people.
Mark is particularly concerned about global trade, the environment and economic issues that impact Americans, “right outside their back doors.”
In 2017, Mark became involved with No Labels when it hosted a convention in New Hampshire. Since then, Mark has expanded his knowledge of local and national politics, while engaging with staffers from the offices of New Hampshire Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan.
“One thing that discourages people is that they don’t know if their representatives know what’s going on,” says Mark. “No Labels has provided me an avenue to promote citizen involvement. We can’t keep kicking the can down the road on our nation’s most important problems. We must be problem solvers for our nation.”
