"The people of New Hampshire expect and deserve the office of the governor to be as open and accessible as possible."
- Gov. Maggie Hassan
Sounds logical, right? In fact, it actually seems like government transparency is one of the few areas in modern politics where all Granite Staters, regardless of ideology, could find common ground. Gov. Maggie Hassan is correct in her premise that the people of New Hampshire deserve two things: openness and accessibility. However, despite the aforementioned quote from the governor being predominantly displayed in the opening paragraph of her taxpayer-funded website, our state's chief executive has failed to meet even her own two parameters necessary for transparency.
