RELEASE: Hassan Campaign Statement on Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Debate

MANCHESTER—Hassan Campaign Press Secretary Aaron Jacobs released the following statement on the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce debate:

“This morning’s debate showed once again that failed CEO Walt Havenstein is either intentionally misleading voters or doesn’t understand the positions he’s pledged to the Koch Brothers he’d support. Either way, it’s not surprising that Havenstein would be clueless as to the devastating effects of his Koch ‘plan,’ after his last strategy drove SAIC into a ditch, as the company shed thousands of jobs and its stock price plummeted. Not to mention that Havenstein failed to stop overspending and massive fraud that cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.”

“Governor Hassan, on the other hand, passed the most bipartisan budget in over a decade without a sales or income tax, and through her careful budget management the state finished fiscal year 2014 with a surplus. Governor Hassan’s bipartisan leadership is moving New Hampshire’s economy in the right direction, and Granite Staters can’t afford to let Havenstein do to the state what he did to SAIC.”

RELEASE: Hassan Campaign Statement on NH1 Debate

MANCHESTER—Hassan Campaign Press Secretary Aaron Jacobs released the following statement following tonight’s NH1 debate:

“Tonight’s debate made clear, once again, that Governor Hassan is the bipartisan leader we need to expand middle class opportunity, help innovative businesses create jobs and move New Hampshire’s economy forward. Failed CEO Walt Havenstein once again showed little understanding of New Hampshire state government or even of his own so-called ‘plans.’ His answers and dodges demonstrated that he’d be a rubber stamp for the backward Bill O’Brien/Koch Brothers agenda.”

RELEASE: Hassan Campaign Statement on Failed CEO Walt Havenstein’s Dishonest and Misleading Ad

MANCHESTER–Hassan Campaign Manager Marc Goldberg issued the following statement regarding failed CEO Walt Havenstein’s dishonest and misleading ad:

“This dishonest and misleading ad is the height of desperation from failed CEO Walt Havenstein. Given Havenstein’s record of bad management and his Koch Brothers agenda, it’s clear that Granite Staters can’t afford to give him a single term to take New Hampshire backward.”

“Governor Maggie Hassan has worked across party lines to make the tough decisions to responsibly balance the budget without a sales or income tax, and she would veto one if it reached her desk – period. In stark contrast to the gridlock in Washington, D.C., Governor Hassan has proven that she knows how to bring people together to get real results for New Hampshire’s people, businesses, and economy.”

RELEASE: In WGIR Debate, Walt Havenstein Tried and Failed to Run Away from His Koch Brothers Agenda that Would Take New Hampshire’s Economy Backwards

MANCHESTER— Hassan Campaign Press Secretary Aaron Jacobs released the following statement on today’s WGIR debate.

“In today’s WGIR debate, failed CEO Walt Havenstein repeatedly misled voters about signing the Koch Brothers pledge and promising to repeal access to health coverage from 50,000 Granite Staters. Havenstein still had no defense for his so-called “plan” that’s straight out of the Koch Brothers playbook and would blow a $90 million hole in the state’s budget to give more tax giveaways to big businesses, while making middle class families and small businesses pay the price.”

“While Governor Hassan made clear that she knows how to bring people together to get things done for New Hampshire’s people, businesses and economy, Havenstein once again pledged his allegiance to the slash-and-burn policies of Bill O’Brien and the Koch Brothers.”
