Ad Release: Hassan's Budget Veto is Hurting New Hampshire
MANCHESTER - Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is launching a significant, statewide television and online advertisement buy. It focuses on Governor Maggie Hassan's budget veto and the detrimental impact it is having on the Granite State's ability to fight a tragically growing heroin epidemic.
Derek Dufresne of Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire released the following statement;
"New Hampshire has been engulfed in a tragic heroin epidemic for months. More Granite Staters are now dying from drug overdoses than car accidents, suicides, and homicides. Tragically, Governor Maggie Hassan made the decision to veto a fiscally responsible budget that would have provided the resources communities needed to fight the epidemic. It was an irresponsible decision that has needlessly stalled the resources necessary for drug treatment, prevention, and recovery.
"Governor Maggie Hassan needs to stop playing politics with the lives of New Hampshire citizens. Granite Staters are suffering as a result of her veto. It is time for our state's chief executive to finally do the right thing and sign the state budget."
