Does Matt Mowers Still Stand With Eric Spofford Among Sexual Misconduct Allegations?

Eric Spofford, founder and former CEO of Granite Recovery Centers, New Hampshire’s largest addiction treatment provider which received over $3 million no-bid from Governor Chris Sununu — to whom Spofford has donated tens of thousands of dollars — was credibly accused of sexual misconduct by multiple survivors employed at or in treatment at one of his recovery centers.


NHPR reported the results of a long-term investigative piece this week, which included photos of the Governor and Spofford together reporting that Spofford’s recovery centers received millions of dollars in funding under Governor Sununu’s administration since 2019.

Spofford has strong ties to NH GOP candidates. Governor Sununu said Spofford is “one of the first guys I’ll pick up the phone to" last July, after stating that he has not talked to Spofford in years.


While Sununu is scrambling to separate himself from Spofford, CD-01 candidate Matt Mowers has yet to disavow Spofford. Spofford has repeatedly donated to Mowers, and hosted a fundraiser for Mowers’s campaign last year. Voters in CD-01 deserve to know the truth– does Matt Mowers stand with Eric Spofford?
