Statement from Manchester City Democrats Chair Chris Pappas on State Senate Special Election

Manchester - Chair of the Manchester City Democrats, Chris Pappas, issued the following statement on the State Senate special election and Democratic nominee Rep. Jeff Goley.
"As someone who served with Rep. Jeff Goley in the New Hampshire House, I know he would make an excellent Senator for District 16.  Jeff has consistently demonstrated his commitment to New Hampshire and his dedication to the values of the people of the Granite State.  And as a resident of District 16, I'm confident that Jeff would be a positive, progressive voice looking out for our district in Concord.  
"While Rep. Jeff Goley worked hard over the last legislative session to pass a responsible and balanced budget, Rep. Boutin stood with his Republican colleagues in support of a reckless 13% across the board cut that would have slashed aid to cities and towns.  The proposal would have been devastating for communities in the District, forcing them to dramatically increase property taxes and make draconian cuts to public safety, health care, and education.
