What is Mowers hiding? With just three weeks until the Republican primary, New Jersey Matt Mowers’ personal finance disclosure has not been made available to Granite State voters
Concord, N.H. - Today, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley issued the following statement in response to New Jersey Matt Mowers’ refusal to make his personal financial disclosure available to Granite State voters - with only three weeks left until the New Hampshire primary elections on September 8: “Cementing his legacy as a craven political operative with close ties to Chris Christie’s Bridgegate scandal, New Jersey Matt Mowers has refused to make his personal financial disclosure available to voters of New Hampshire. What is he hiding in his personal financial disclosure that he doesn’t want voters to know about before his primary election? Mowers is so desperate for a connection to New Hampshire that he's taking a page right out of disgraced former Congressman Frank Guinta's playbook by hiding his shady business dealings from voters. We know Mowers is new to the state, but I can assure him that Granite Staters expect their representatives to be transparent and accountable - as Matt Mayberry, who has already filed and made that filing available to the voters, clearly knows. Mowers must make this information public today.” Personal financial disclosures for House candidates were due on May 15, 2020. Mowers was given an extension on May 11, 2020 - making August 9, 2020 the new due date for his disclosure. Ten days past that new deadline, the filing is still not yet available. Personal financial disclosures for candidates running for the House can be accessed via the Clerk of the United States House of Representatives.
