Speaker Bio

Congresswoman Annie Kuster

U.S. House of Representatives

Natural Climate Solutions and Climate Action

Annie Kuster was born and raised in Concord, New Hampshire to a family that taught her the values of kindness and empathy. Growing up, Annie helped her late mother, State Senator Susan McLane, who served in the NH House and Senate for over 25 years and was a pioneer for women in New Hampshire politics. Through that experience, Annie gained an appreciation for the good that government can do for communities and people, and a deep desire to help create positive change for Granite Staters.

Kuster is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, where she serves on the Health Subcommittee, Energy Subcommittee, and the Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee. She is also a member of the House Agriculture Committee, where she serves on the Nutrition, Oversight, & Department Operations Subcommittee, Commodity Exchanges, Energy, & Credit Subcommittee, and Conservation & Forestry Subcommittee.

In Congress, Annie is focused on bringing Granite State voices to Washington. As the founder and co-chair of the Bipartisan Addiction and Mental Health Task Force, she is working across the aisle to address the substance use crisis in New Hampshire and throughout the country and advance evidence-based approaches to end the opioid epidemic once and for all.
