NHGOP CHAIR KIMBALL SAYS UNIONS USE ‘EXTORTIONATE REVENUE’ TO FUND DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES

CONCORD --Jack Kimball, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party released the following statement regarding the postponed vote to override a veto of the right-to-work bill.

“A vicious cycle exists in New Hampshire: union contracts force people who aren’t union members to pay dues.  The union bosses, flush with cash, funnel millions of dollars toward liberal Democrat candidates.

Republicans are fighting to break this cycle.  We stand for individual freedom, and we don’t believe a worker should be forced into giving money to a union that they don’t belong to.

When we take away this extortionate revenue from unions, they’ll have less money, but its money they should have never had in the first place.

I applaud Speaker O’Brien for taking this issue seriously and for planning the best way to override Governor Lynch’s anti-business agenda.”
