ICYMI: Sununu tries to take credit for yet another Hassan economic accomplishment
Concord, N.H. - Yesterday, Governor Sununu claimed credit for Revision Military's decision to move to New Hampshire. The only problem: Revision Military has had its eye on New Hampshire since 2015, when they engaged in a dialogue with then-Governor Hassan. NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement:
"With no business recruitment accomplishments of his own, Governor Sununu is trying to take credit for Maggie Hassan's. The governor's not-so-transparent initiative to recruit 100 businesses in 100 days has amounted to nothing, and while Sununu has been eager to grab undue credit, he has yet to take responsibility for recent, large layoffs at Liberty Mutual & Sam's Club under his watch. Sununu should focus on doing his job instead of trying to swipe credit from his predecessor for her successful efforts to keep New Hampshire thriving economically." NHPR: Tactical Gear Maker Revision Military Expanding In To Pease By Todd Bookman "A military and tactical gear company says it will set up its United States headquarters at the Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth. Revision Military makes helmets and goggles used by soldiers and members of law enforcement. Governor Chris Sununu announced the company’s decision this morning, citing his own policies for helping to lure the company. It turns out Revision has had its eyes on New Hampshire for several years... ...Revision, it appears, had New Hampshire on its mind well before its meeting with Sununu. In October, 2016, the company issued a statement to the media saying that it was going to add a manufacturing facility in New Hampshire. I spoke with a company spokesperson today and she said Revision spent much of 2015 and 2016 considering its options in terms of expansion. New Hampshire was on that shortlist. The company in fact met with state officials, including then Governor Maggie Hassan."
