Meet Dr. Sherman

A Lifetime of Service

Dr. Sherman has dedicated his life to service, from working as an EMT in high school, to designing a clinic in a homeless shelter while in med school, and then more than 30 years of working as a doctor. When he got a call, he worked to treat everyone – it didn’t matter who you voted for, your income, your race – he provided care to everyone who needed it. Dr. Sherman’s always tackled the tough issues head-on. He will take those same values to the Governor’s office.


As the New Hampshire State Senate’s only doctor, Senator Sherman has been a leader for public health in Concord. Dr. Sherman has a long history of reaching across the aisle to get things done. Working with members of both parties, he’s helped expand health coverage to more than 50,000 Granite Staters, lowered prescription drug costs, instituted the toughest clean water standards in the country to protect our firefighters and drinking water, and increased the number of beds available for people in a mental health crisis. He’s worked to deliver help to small businesses impacted by COVID and connect them to the workers they needed. In leadership and as a member of more than 16 statutory commissions and committees, he has kept his promise to address the challenges of the mental health crisis, the opioid crisis, and the issue of environmental and drinking water contamination.

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services appointed Dr. Sherman to help make sure the state provided a high level of care to Granite Staters with limited resources. He also co-founded and then chaired the COVID Policy Alliance’s Senior Support Team to connect senior residential living facilities with the critical resources they needed. And in 2020, the Secretary of State asked him to bring his healthcare and election law expertise to make recommendations for ensuring the safety of both voters and election workers in the 2020 elections. 


Dr. Sherman is running for Governor because we need someone who will focus on finding solutions and building a thriving economy that works for all Granite Staters. Too many families know what it’s like to question how you’re going to afford child care, or pay a medical bill, or cover housing and utilities each month. As your Governor, helping those families will be his top priority each and every day.
