Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement in response to State Senators Andy Sanborn, Sharon Carson, and Jim Rausch voting against Senate Bill 143 which expands the New Hampshire Working Program.
"It was disappointing to see Senators Sharon Carson and Jim Rausch join Tea Party Senator Andy Sanborn in showing their true colors and proving they aren't interested in creating jobs or moving New Hampshire forward. Senate Bill 143 creates the 'Pathway to Work' program which encourages and enables unemployed workers to create their own jobs by starting their own small businesses," said Buckley.
"This is an innovative jobs program to help train unemployed workers to start their own small businesses. Why would Senators Carson, Rausch, Sanborn vote against helping move unemployed Granite Staters to meaningful work?"
