Jim Coburn response toGovernor Lynch

regarding Merrimack County Superior Court Judge Kathleen McGuire’s Ruling on SEA Case

Concord , NH - “Here is another case of Governor John Lynch trying to be everything to everyone, and not taking a decisive position…” Coburn said after hearing Lynch’s reaction.

On this issue, the Governor commented that he is in favor of extending benefits to gay and lesbian couples but supports his AttorneyGeneral’s fight against this…”That is not leadership”…Coburn said. “A true leader would pick one or the other, support the ruling or support his Attorney General”
