Instead of Working on Budget, Sununu Abandons New Hampshire...Again
Concord, N.H. - Instead of working on his budget, Chris Sununu announced he'll be leaving the state for a trip to Dubai. The Governor's office made no mention of what state employees would be traveling with him, who would be covering their expenses, and how much it will cost. Round trip non-stop flights from Boston to Dubai on a range of major travel sites list prices in the thousands. NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement: "No one should be surprised when the budget Sununu presents guts education, health care, and other essential services for thousands of Granite Staters because he would rather be in Dubai than doing his job at the State House. The very least Chris Sununu can do is tell us -- New Hampshire's taxpayers -- how much this trip is going to cost us, who is traveling with him, and who is covering his staff's expenses."
