Executive Council votes to hang Dudley Dudley portrait despite Sununu's year-long stonewalling


Concord, N.H. - Today, the Executive Council voted unanimously to hang Dudley Dudley's portrait, responding to more than a year of delays and ignored requests by Governor Sununu. Dudley was the first woman elected Executive Councilor in New Hampshire history, yet Governor Sununu refused to hang her portrait after it was unveiled in December of 2016. This isn't Sununu's first run-in with a portrait of a historic woman in New Hampshire political history. Last year, Sununu put a potted plant in front of Senator Shaheen's portrait. Shaheen was the first ever woman elected Governor of New Hampshire and the first woman in American history to be a governor and a Senator. NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement: "Today, historic New Hampshire women scored a victory over Governor Sununu and his childish family grudges. Sununu's effort to shut out rather than honor New Hampshire's history is shameful and disrespectful and today's unanimous vote shows how unacceptable his behavior is. Enough with the petty games, governor."
