NH Senate Majority - Sen. Carson welcomes Comacst Customer Care Center to Hudson 

The New Hampshire Senate

Republican Majority Office

Hudson, NH – Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry) today applauded the opening of Comcast’s 127,000 square foot Customer Care Center in Hudson’s Sagamore Industrial Park. The $13 million facility was built to accommodate an anticipated workforce of 600 employees.

 

“I am thrilled to welcome Comcast to Hudson. Once this facility is fully-staffed, Comcast will employ 2,400 people across New Hampshire,” Carson said. “This state-of-the-art facility continues Comcast’s history of introducing its latest products and innovations to New Hampshire first.”

 

The Hudson Customer Care Center will be the first to use the company’s new “Einstein” knowledge management system, designed to improve interactions with customers. It includes employee wellness features such as an onsite fitness center, ceilings designed to virtually eliminate white noise, and 17 wellness rooms for employees to take breaks. The building housing the new Customer Care Center was once solely occupied by printing firm Presstek, which will now share the building with Comcast.

 

“Comcast recognizes that Hudson offers both the ideal location and workforce for growing companies,” Carson concluded.

NHDP - NEW WEB AD: Brown and Romney Outsourcing Records Wrong For NH

NHDP Releases New Targeted Web Ad Ahead of Romney Visit
 
Manchester, NH--The New Hampshire Democratic Party is releasing a new web ad ahead of Scott Brown's campaign stop with fellow Massachusetts politician and notorious outsourcer, Mitt Romney. During Romney's 2012 presidential campaign, it was revealed that Mitt Romney invested millions of dollars in a company that profited off of U.S. Outsourcing. Similarly, Scott Brown has been making hundreds of thousands of dollars off an outsourcing company, even endorsing their business strategy, which included sending jobs to China and Mexico.

"Scott Brown and Mitt Romney both cashed in off of outsourcing jobs--and that's just further proof that both are wrong for our economy and wrong for New Hampshire," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain.

NHDP - Mass and NH Labor Leaders Speak Out On Brown’s Outsourcing Record 

As Outsourcing Champion Mitt Romney Campaigns With Scott Brown, Massachusetts and New Hampshire Labor Leaders Speak Out on Brown’s Outsourcing Record
 

Manchester, NH – Massachusetts AFL-CIO President Steven Tolman and New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Mark Mackenzie spoke out against Scott Brown’s outsourcing record today as he campaigned alongside outsourcing champion Mitt Romney. Like Romney, Scott Brown has a record of profiting off companies that ship American jobs overseas. In the Senate, Brown voted to protect tax breaks for companies that shipped jobs overseas.
 
“New Hampshire shouldn’t make the same mistake Massachusetts made, because Scott Brown’s record when he went to Washington proves that he’s not for working families. He’s a guy that works to protect his corporate special interest backers, at the cost of the middle class,” said Steven Tolman, President of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. “Now we know that since losing in Massachusetts, Brown has been making hundreds of thousands of dollars off of a company that made outsourcing part of its business plan. That company, Kadant Inc., even outsourced jobs in Massachusetts, the same state he once served. Scott Brown was wrong for Massachusetts and he’s wrong for New Hampshire.”
 
“Outsourcing is the type of business practice that lines the pockets of people like Scott Brown and Mitt Romney, but is devastating for communities in a state like New Hampshire,” said Mark Mackenzie, President of the New Hampshire AFL-CIO. “When jobs are shipped overseas, families suffer, unemployment rates increase, and entire communities are decimated. The fact that Scott Brown personally profited from this practice is shameful. We can't trust him and most definitely can't afford to send his agenda back to the Senate.”


As a Senator from Massachusetts, Scott Brown voted to protect special tax breaks for companies that offshore American jobs. After leaving the Senate, he made more than a quarter million dollars by serving on the Board of Directors of Kadant, Inc., a company that outsourced American jobs to increase its bottom line. Just two days before he announced his most recent campaign in New Hampshire, Brown signed legal documents endorsing the company’s business strategy, which included establishing cheaper manufacturing facilities in China and Mexico.
