Clock Counts Time Hassan Has Refused To Hold Town Hall Meetings
Concord – The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today launched the Hassan Town Hall Ticker, a new clock posted on www.nhgop.org that tracks the days Governor Hassan has refused to hold a town hall-style meeting since her inauguration as governor on January 3, 2013.
“Governor Hassan refuses to hold town hall meetings because she knows her failed record of raising taxes on working families, mismanaging the state’s response to New Hampshire’s heroin epidemic and bringing Washington gridlock to Concord cannot be defended,” said New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn. “The governor’s shameful disregard for New Hampshire’s political tradition of open and accountable government demonstrates that she is a typical partisan politician who thinks too highly of herself to face her own constituents. After nearly three years of dodging questions, it's time for Governor Hassan to hold the type of town hall-style meetings that Granite Staters expect from their elected officials.”
As of this writing, it has been 1,037 days that Governor Hassan has held elective office and refused to hold a town hall-style meeting.
