Concord - Rep. Jeff Goley, Democratic candidate for Senate District 16, issued the following statement praising the Governor's State of the State address and his plan to help grow New Hampshire's economy.
"Governor Lynch is correctly focused on the one thing that matters most today: jobs. New Hampshire Working, the detailed plan he outlined in today's State of the State address, would go a long way to not only keep good jobs here in New Hampshire, but also bring new jobs to the state.
"As the Governor pointed out, New Hampshire continues to weather the economic downturn far better than most other states. Unemployment in New Hampshire is 30% lower than the national average but too many people are still out of work. The comprehensive jobs plan the governor outlined today is an important step in getting every Granite State citizen back to work.
