Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Governor Maggie Hassan to withdraw her nomination of radical anti-school choice activist William Duncan to the State Board of Education:


"The School Choice Bill leveled the playing field, offering even our poorest students the opportunity to access the educational environment that is best for them.


"Governor Maggie Hassan's decision to nominate somebody to the Board of Education who is suing our state to end this worthy program is another example of her elitist and callous disregard for the most vulnerable students in our community. William Duncan is a radical anti-school choice activist who has led the charge to deny children access to the best possible educational opportunities regardless of family income. He is the wrong person for this important position and the governor should immediately withdraw his shameful nomination."
