Partisan bickering in Washington such as the comments made by the former Congresswoman today are exactly why so many Americans remain out of work
(MANCHESTER – June 1, 2012) Rep. Frank Guinta (NH-01) released the following statement on former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter's recent comments stating that the many job fairs hosted by Rep. Guinta are "unnecessary.”
“It is unfortunate that even on the same day we learn our nation's unemployment rate is at 8.2%, former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter still believes that getting Granite Staters back to work is not a priority. Over the past year, I've remained focused on the most pressing issue facing New Hampshire: middle-class job creation. That's why I've held job fairs in Portsmouth, Rochester, Derry, Conway and a special one in Manchester for Veterans and Military families to help those who served get back to work. In addition, I've launched a series of Women's Job Conferences and Manufacturers’ Summits to help even more of New Hampshire's unemployed. Partisan bickering in Washington such as the comments made by the former Congresswoman today are exactly why so many Americans remain out of work.
"Granite Staters looking for a job can be assured that despite the 'politics as usual' mentality by many politicians, I will continue to fight for them both in Washington and in New Hampshire - and I will not stop until every Granite Stater who is looking for a good paying middle-class job has one.”
