(March 10, 2015) - Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is launching a microsite today. It highlights the lack of transparency found in Governor Maggie Hassan's corner office as she refuses to respond to multiple Right-to-Know requests or hold a single Town Hall meeting with her constituents. It also discusses her fiscally irresponsible budget proposal that mismanages priorities, increases spending, and raises taxes and fees on Granite State families and small businesses.
The conservative issues group Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire today launched a microsite alleging a “lack of transparency” in Gov. Maggie Hassan’s office. The site is “backed by a significant statewide digital advertisement buy,” the group said.
"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.
