Alexandria is a proud resident of Portsmouth, New Hampshire and is dedicated to helping keep the country free. She was a candidate for Alderman in Manchester in 2015, and candidate for state representative in 2016. She plans to run for state representative in 2020. She is a passionate veterans’ advocate, strongly committed to preserving the constitution, and majoring in political science at SNHU with a concentration in campaign leadership to dedicate her life to helping our elected leaders, and to serve the people. She really enjoys mentoring younger students and getting them involved in the political process. She believes young people should be empowered to run, and encourages them to get on the campaign trail and not be afraid to put themselves out there. Alexandria wants to help business thrive with the least government regulations possible. She believes everyone has the opportunity to prosper if given the chance.

Alexandria is the granddaughter of the late Bruce C. Knox, a former Selectman in Auburn. After traveling for several years as a student and musician, Alexandria moved back to Manchester in April 2013. After spending the summer of 2017 studying in Texas where she learned about local and state politics and attending the Young Womens Leadership Summit, she had the opportunity to move to Portsmouth. She has experience in several different fields including performing for military honor guards as professional bugler, performing for veterans events as a highland bagpiper, volunteering in the Coast Guard Auxiliary and Civil Air Patrol as radio operations specialist, and volunteering in politics. She has volunteered for several campaigns including Walt Havenstein for Governor 2014, Andrew Hemingway for Governor 2014, Scott Brown for Senate 2014, Frank Guinta for Congress 2014, and several state representative and senate campaigns. She recently was an intern for Gov. Chris Christie’s presidential campaign, and was an intern for Gov. Scott Walker’s Presidential campaign. She also had the opportunity to volunteer for Senator Kelly Ayotte’s reelection campaign in 2016. As a musician, she has toured throughout the United States and Canada performing for large and small events. She continues her studies at SNHU in political science as well as performs for events as a highland bagpiper. Before becoming a professional musician, Alexandria toured with various drum and bugle corps throughout the U.S and Canada and attended the Manchester Community Music School for music college prep, leaving to study music performance at the University of Minnesota Moorhead in 2007.

Alexandria got started in politics because she knew she wanted to make a change for the better. Alexandria is unique because she was born three-months premature that led to complete vision loss. She hopes to empower others with unique challenges to discover their dreams and live their lives to the fullest. She was raised in a family that saw her as a normal person and not as a person with special needs. She believes that people with different abilities and unique challenges do not have to be limited to the low expectations society holds for them. She comes from a family with strong work ethics and family values. She was taught early in life about the importance of fiscal responsibility. Alexandria is running to improve New Hampshire’s economy, lower taxes so that Granite state citizens may live the American dream, and will work to help the business climate grow. She is also dedicated to helping those experiencing mental illness, addiction, and homelessness. She is excited to have this opportunity as a candidate. If elected, Alexandria will be a strong, compassionate advocate for her district in Concord. She especially hopes to help those with special needs live their dreams not through big government, but through individual choice and limitless possibilities.

When Alexandria is not performing, volunteering, or studying, she enjoys adaptive skiing, volunteer activities, going out to eat, spending time with friends, trips and activities with her vision loss group, going to the beach, spending time with her cat Sable, and reading.
