“I congratulate all of our newly seated Representatives and thank them for their hard work and commitment to serve New Hampshire. I look forward to working with the newly elected Speaker of the House to address the important issues facing our State. While we may not agree on everything we will certainly look to find common ground and work to propose common sense solutions. We need to produce an honest, sensible and balanced budget without raising taxes or fees, and we need to ensure we maintain a focus on jobs and economic growth. We have an important job ahead and I look forward to working with this legislature to help make New Hampshire a better place for our families and our business community.”
