Congresswoman Annie Kuster leaves Granite Staters out in the cold
(March 31 2014) - Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) has been a Member of Congress for over 400 days. During that time, her office hasn't hosted a single Town Hall meeting to give all of her constituents the opportunity to address the many important issues facing the citizens of New Hampshire's Second Congressional District.
The video highlights the arrogance of Congresswoman Kuster and her supporters regarding her refusal to meet with all of her constituents. In addition to Congresswoman Kuster blatantly ignoring the question, one supporter who gets into the same car as her afterwards, rudely screams into the camera.
Afterwards, another supporter of Congresswoman Kuster and Senator Jeanne Shaheen mocks the Granite Stater holding the camera for having to stand outside in the cold rather than being able to attend a partisan event where he was not allowed inside.
Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:
"While Congresswoman Annie Kuster attends fundraisers and partisan events where only her supporters can attend, she continues to turn a blind eye to the rest of her constituents. That's wrong. It has been over 400 days since Congresswoman Kuster assumed office. In that time, we find it hard to believe that she hasn't found the time to host a single Town Hall meeting.
"In addition, the blatant and unapoligetic rudeness of Congresswoman Kuster's supporters and friends is inexcusable. Residents of the Second Congressional District deserve to know that instead of meeting with them in a Town Hall, she would rather take advice and council from individuals like these."
