(September 17, 2014) - Today, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is launching a new microsite at www.WhyAreTheyHiding.com. The site focuses on the failed votes and policy positions Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01), and Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) have taken, and highlights them as a reason for why the four aforementioned elected officials are hiding from Granite Staters with their refusal to hold public Town Hall meetings.
Last month, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire launched a smaller site and a web video focusing solely on Senator Jeanne Shaheen's record.
www.WhyAreTheyHiding.com, which will be an offshoot of the organization's main website, www.StrongNH.com, is being backed with a significant, state-wide, online advertisement buy, which will be used to educate countless New Hampshire residents about the lack of honesty and transparency they are receiving from their elected officials.
Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:
"New Hampshire once had a long standing tradition of open and honest elected officials who were concerned with the views of their constituents. However, that seems to be fading from memory as Governor Maggie Hassan, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, and Congresswoman Annie Kuster continue to hide from those they represent.
"Considering their support for a failing Obamacare, a collapsing foreign policy, and a crisis at our border, we certainly understand why they are hiding from Granite Staters, but that's no excuse. Granite Staters want to know why Hassan, Shaheen, Shea-Porter, and Kuster are going out of their way to avoid them. Since their constituents can't get answers from their elected officials, our new microsite helps explain why they are hiding from them."
