Governor Maggie Hassan asked legislators on Wednesday for a special session on November 18th to approve $11.1 million in new programs to combat the state's heroin epidemic.
When looking at Maggie Hassan's response, it truly has become a tale of two governors.
Over the summer, Granite Staters unfortunately suffered under the unresponsive Governor Hassan. This apathetic individual was willing to use her budget veto to hold up a 75% increase in funding to combat drug abuse simply to advance her liberal agenda. Now that she has made her political intentions clear, New Hampshire is forced to suffer under the rushed Governor Hassan. This frantic chief executive is exploiting the problem with no consensus or bipartisan plan to truly fight the epidemic.
The sad reality is that neither the apathetic summer version of Maggie Hassan nor the rushed fall version of Maggie Hassan understands the concept of leadership, which unfortunately hurts New Hampshire families.
