InfoAnn McLane Kuster was born and raised in Concord, New Hampshire. She and her husband Brad now live nearby in Hopkinton where they raised their two sons, Zach and Travis.

As a longtime community activist, author, attorney, and advocate, Annie has focused her career on increasing access to affordable health care and higher education for families. She has been actively involved in a number of significant health and education policy issues, including the creation of the Medication Bridge Program to distribute free medication to low-income families and the UNIQUE College Savings Program to help families save for their children to attend college.

With her late mother, State Senator Susan McLane, Annie co-authored a book entitled “The Last Dance: Facing Alzheimer’s with Love and Laughter” and has toured the state speaking about aging and Alzheimer’s. In 2008, Annie received the Rainbow Award from Riverbend Community Mental Health Center which celebrates those who raise awareness of mental-health issues in New Hampshire.

Active in community service, Annie served on the Board of Trustees of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, New Hampshire Public Radio, the Capitol Center for the Arts and Child and Family Services of New Hampshire. She was a Founder of the Women’s Fund of New Hampshire and served on the Board of the Tucker Foundation at Dartmouth College to encourage community service.

In addition, Annie is a member of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys and maintains a private adoption practice in which she has helped hundreds of New Hampshire families adopt a child.

Annie served on the statewide steering committees of the presidential campaigns for both Barack Obama in 2007-2008 and John Kerry in 2003-2004. She also served as Co-Chair with Peggo Hodes of New Hampshire Women for Obama. She was a 2008 Obama delegate at the Democratic National Convention in Denver and a member of the 2004 New Hampshire Delegation in Boston. In 2000, Annie received the Eleanor Roosevelt Award for dedicated service to the Democratic Party at the local, state and national level.

She graduated from Dartmouth College in 1978, in the third class with women. Annie graduated from Georgetown Law School in 1984. She is a partner in the Concord law firm of Rath, Young and Pignatelli.

Annie and her husband, Brad Kuster, an environmental lawyer, have two sons, Zach, who attends Dartmouth College and Travis, a graduating senior from Hopkinton High School. Annie’s late mother was former State Senator Susan McLane, a pioneer for women in New Hampshire politics. Her late father, Malcolm McLane, was Mayor of Concord, a New Hampshire Executive Councilor, and one of the state’s most prominent attorneys for over 50 years.
