EXETER – Today, Chris Sununu, a Republican from Newfields, filed as a candidate with the Secretary of State to run for New Hampshire’s District 3 Executive Council seat. Sununu, 35, is a small business owner and engineer. He was joined today at his filing by veteran Executive Councilors Ray Burton (District 1) and Ray Wieczorek (District 4).
“The Executive Council is quietly one of the most important positions in the state,” said Sununu. “I’m running to make sure that state government runs efficiently and effectively, and to provide a direct conduit from the voters to the Governor’s office. Councilors Burton and Wieczorek, and former Councilor Ruth Griffin, have been model public servants, and I intend to conduct myself in a similar fashion – that is to work tirelessly in representing my district.”
“No matter what party controls the Governor’s office, there is always a need for the checks and balances the Executive Council provides,” Sununu continued. “People want to know that their voice is being heard and that someone is holding the Governor and state agencies accountable for their actions.”
“There are serious challenges facing our state, and I bring a fresh perspective with relevant experience to the job. If elected, I will focus on restoring fiscal responsibility, amplifying the voice of my constituents, and holding government accountable. As an engineer, I’m trained in problem solving, and that’s what I intend to do on the Council.”
Councilors Burton and Wieczorek issued a joint statement of support for Sununu. “The Executive Council plays a vital role in administering the necessary services provided by New Hampshire’s State Government. In these challenging times, we need the best possible public officials to ensure that the needs of the residents of this state are met. Chris Sununu is someone who would concentrate on constituent services and would always be a voice for the citizens of District 3 in Concord.”
