The state’s first openly transgender legislator who was elected to the House of Representatives in 2011 but never served her term, said this week that she plans to return to politics.
Democrat Stacie Laughton, of 507 Broad St., was elected in November 2012 as one of three House members for Ward 4 in Nashua. However, after news surfaced about her previous life as a convicted felon under the name of Barry C. Laughton Jr. in Laconia, Laughton signed her letter of resignation.
