Manchester—As the only candidate for Governor who will protect a woman’s right to safely access critical health services and make her own health decisions, Governor Hassan today received the endorsement of Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund PAC.
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan saw many of her legislative priorities come to fruition during her first term in office, but none without support from the Republican-led state Senate.
Serving as governor after the divisive 2010-2011 legislative session, Hassan is now making bipartisan success a key piece of her re-election message as her [Nov. 4] showdown with Republican businessman Walt Havenstein approaches.
As Governor Hassan Received Endorsements from New Hampshire Fire Fighters and State Troopers, Havenstein Held An Ill-Prepared Media Stunt and Offered Conflicting Excuses For Yet Another Scandal During His Tenure as CEO of SAIC
Manchester—Today, failed CEO Walt Havenstein campaigned on education with failed Governor Bobby Jindal, even though Havenstein’s so-called “plan” would blow a $90 million hole in the state’s budget, putting at risk critical priorities including funding for public education. Havenstein has also voiced his support for the misguided voucher tax credit program, which diverts funding for all public schools, including public charter schools.
New Hampshire Veterans Deserve to Know Why Their Personal Health Information May Have Been Compromised and Why SAIC Never Compensated Those Hurt by Company’s Negligence
Manchester – Praising her tested leadership and unwavering commitment to protecting New Hampshire communities, the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire today endorsed Maggie Hassan for re-election. The PFFNH represents more than 2,000 active and retired fire fighters and paramedics.
In the Course of One Day, Havenstein First Declared That He “Held Those Responsible Accountable and Resolved the Problem,” But Hours Later Claimed He “Never Knew About It While There”
In Contradictory Pushback, Havenstein’s Campaign Also Admits He Couldn’t Keep Track of All the Contracts at SAIC
Manchester—Yesterday, Walt Havenstein gave two completely conflicting stories about his role in an SAIC scheme that overcharged taxpayers millions of dollars to train first responders during his disastrous tenure as CEO.
Manchester—Today, in his latest attempt to hide his disastrous record at SAIC and his Bill O’Brien/Koch Brothers agenda that would take New Hamsphire backwards, Walt Havenstein launched a misleading (and completely un-sourced) attack ad that recycles the same baseless claims that failed candidate Ovide Lamontagne tried two years ago.
As PolitiFact reported in 2012, “Lamontagne campaign officials declined to release their list of nearly 100 increases,” and PolitiFact was unable to find a source who could produce a list to backup Lamontagne’s charges.
As CEO, Havenstein Failed to Stop “Systemic Fraud” that “Cheated the Government Out of Millions of Dollars” in Taxpayer Money to Train Emergency Personnel to Respond to a Terrorist Attack
In 2013, SAIC Settled a Whistle Blower Lawsuit for $11.75 Million Resulting from a Scheme that was Reportedly “Well-Known Among High-Level Executives”
Manchester—Highlighting another example of Walt Havenstein’s failed leadership and mismanagement, Governor Hassan’s campaign today called on Havenstein to come clean to Granite Staters about what he knew, when he knew it, and why he failed to stop SAIC’s scheme that overcharged taxpayers millions of dollars to train first responders. The AP reported that the scheme was “well-known among high-level executives.” [AP, June 13, 2013]
Havenstein Can’t Point To A Single Thing He Would Change About Governor Hassan’s Bipartisan, Fiscally Responsible Solutions
Concord – Walt Havenstein’s clueless responses to questions about New Hampshire’s budget reinforces, once again, why Havenstein can’t be allowed to run our state. At his own press conference, Havenstein failed to name a single thing that he would change about Governor Hassan’s bipartisan, fiscally responsible solutions. In an effort to rescue a flailing Havenstein, Senator Morse also criticized the bipartisan plans to end the costly mental health and Medicaid Enhancement Tax (MET) lawsuits that threatened our state’s budget and bond rating, which passed unanimously in the Senate.
