CONCORD – Today the New Hampshire Republican Party released the attached research briefing on Governor Lynch’s toll hike. It also can be viewed at ( http://www.nhgop.org/just-the-facts-the-lynch-toll-/ ) .
Party Chairman Fergus Cullen had the following comments:
“The Lynch toll hike is only temporary relief to a Department of Transportation that has been plagued by mismanagement and a lack of leadership under the Shaheen and Lynch administrations. Governor Lynch has been silent while 51% of transportation money is being spent by other agencies, and in an effort to address the problem his administration has exacerbated, Lynch’s first instinct is to raise taxes. What New Hampshire needs is more responsible leadership –not higher tolls.”
