NHDP - Voters Will Hold Republican Senators Accountable for Votes Against Commuter Rail

Concord, N.H. – Kevin Avard, David Boutin and the rest of the Senate Republican caucus voted today to block funding necessary to move forward with commuter rail from Boston to Nashua and Manchester. 

“The business community, including the Manchester and Nashua Chambers of Commerce, is calling on the legislature to act now on commuter rail in order to seize on our state’s economic potential and lay the foundation for a new generation of economic growth,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “Kevin Avard and David Boutin will find out in November 2016 that the people and businesses of Nashua and Manchester aren't going to forget this vote against the economic interests of their communities.”
