NHDP Statement on Swearing in of Governor
CONCORD, NH — Today, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu was inaugurated to another term as Governor of New Hampshire. In response, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement.
“In this last election, Chris Sununu saw his win margin cut in half. That’s because New Hampshire voters see beyond his ‘aw shucks’ attitude and well-known family name to his dismal record of service for the people of New Hampshire.
“When this governor has been in New Hampshire — and not touring the country in an attempt to prop up his national image ahead of a doomed presidential run — his work has centered on a predictable strategy: take credit for everything good, deny blame for everything bad.
“The voters are catching on to his failures on skyrocketing property taxes and energy costs. They’re catching on to his attacks on and attempts to defund public schools and public school teachers. They’re catching on that he does not support a woman’s right to choose, and that he’s willing to follow far right extremists in his own party anywhere that will provide him even a modest level of political advantage.”
