About Cinde

Cinde Warmington is a lifelong health care advocate representing District 2 on the Executive Council

As the only Democrat on the Executive Council, Cinde has been the last line of defense against Republican overreach and extremism.

She has stood strong for funding Planned Parenthood and against banning abortion. She made headlines earlier this year by rescuing a town from the brink of bankruptcy that would have closed schools, prevented road maintenance, and stopped police and fire rescue services. She has helped deliver resources for job development, affordable housing, and child care services across New Hampshire. Cinde has been closely working with the congressional delegation and, in March, approved an additional $40M to expand the broadband infrastructure in rural New Hampshire where tens of thousands of families are not getting the service they need.

Cinde was first elected in 2020 by defeating Republican Jim Beard by just under 9 percent to represent Executive Council District 2 — which, at the time, consisted of 49 cities and towns.

In 2022, she secured a second term by handily defeating sitting Republican State Senator Harold French by nearly 20 percent, winning more votes than anyone else on the Executive Council. The newly configured District 2 represents over 250,000 Granite Staters in 81 cities and towns, including Concord, Keene and Lebanon, and stretching up the Connecticut River and Vermont border, to north of the Franconia Notch and into Coös County.

A health care attorney, Cinde began her law practice at the law firm of Shaheen & Gordon P.A. more than twenty years ago, and later became a partner and chair of the Health Care Practice Group. As an attorney, she advocated for the expansion of substance use disorder treatment services, increased funding for mental health services and increased access to telehealth services. Her practice focused on representing health care providers from individuals to large hospital systems in a wide range of business and regulatory matters.

Prior to becoming an attorney, Cinde worked in health care for two decades including as a medical technologist in hospital laboratories and in various health care management roles.

As a volunteer, Cinde has served on the boards of the New Hampshire Professionals Health Program, Riverbend Community Mental Health, and the Lakes Region Mental Health Center, where she served as Chair. She is a recipient of the Lakes Region Mental Health Center’s Pete Harris Community Service Award for her advocacy work to raise awareness of mental health issues.

Cinde lives in Concord with her husband, Bill Christie. She has two grown children, Emily and Adam, and four grandchildren.
