Manchester, N.H. –Candidate for New Hampshire Governor, Andrew Hemingway, released the following statement on Governor Hassan’s appointment of Bill Duncan to the State Board of Education:
“Governor Hassan has doubled down on her Government take-over of our children's education, with her nomination of Bill Duncan to the State Board of Education.
“Bill Duncan is currently suing the State of NH claiming that lower income kids should not be allowed to have any choice in schooling. How can you be on the State Board of Education while suing the state over its existing education laws? Is Governor Hassan, who opposes the Student Tax Credit Program, rewarding Mr. Duncan with this appointment in appreciation of his filing of the lawsuit? This isn't the type of leadership we need.”—Andrew Hemingway
Hemingway for Governor has launched a petition to oppose the appointment of Duncan to the State Board of Education. You may find the petition at www.andrewhemingway.com/education-nomination-petition.
