Governor-Elect Hassan's "Innovate NH Tour" Continues With Stops Across the North Country

The Office of Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan

COLEBROOK – Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan will continue her statewide “Innovate NH Tour” with events across the North Country. Hassan's “Innovate NH Tour” features stops across New Hampshire, including visits to innovative businesses and discussions with local leaders, educators and citizens, as part of her efforts to reach out to Granite Staters for their ideas on how to keep New Hampshire moving forward.

Hassan’s North Country tour will include meetings with community leaders and stops at local businesses beginning in Colebrook and including stops in Groveton, Berlin, Littleton and Conway.

Earlier this month, Hassan announced her North Country Priorities Transition Outreach Team of current and former local elected officials and community leaders who will help her reach out to North Country communities for their priorities and ideas. The North Country outreach team includes Raymond Burton, Executive Councilor for District 1; State Senator Jeff Woodburn of Dalton; Berlin Mayor Paul Grenier; Former State Senator John Gallus of Berlin; State Representative Tom Buco of Conway; former State Senator Mark Hounsell of Conway; former State Senator Deb Reynolds of Plymouth; former State Representative Martha McLeod of Franconia; and James Tibbetts, President and CEO of First Colebrook Bank.

As Governor, Maggie Hassan will bring people together to keep New Hampshire moving forward by focusing on innovation, fiscal responsibility and common-sense solutions to our challenges. Hassan will work with members of both parties to develop a fiscally responsible balanced budget that protects New Hampshire’s priorities without an income or sales tax. She will work to implement her “Innovate NH” jobs plan, which focuses on building the best workforce in the country, providing tax credits to businesses, and giving businesses technical assistance to help them create jobs. And Hassan will reach out to legislators and citizens across the state to listen to their ideas on moving New Hampshire forward.
