Many of us would give Gov. Chris Sununu positive marks for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. He handles himself well on stage in his frequent briefings. However, during this past year he vetoed 57 bills. A number of these were bipartisan and would have helped individuals during this pandemic. Let us not lose sight of these vetoes. Sununu is not the moderate he claims to be.

For instance, House Bill 712, the family and medical leave bill, was just vetoed by Gov. Sununu on July 10 during the pandemic. This bill would have allowed family members to stay home and care for those with COVID-19. It also would have helped victims of this terrible virus to stay home instead of having to go to work in order to put food on their families’ tables.

Fortunately, two qualified candidates are on the ballot for governor in the Democratic primary in September. Dan Feltes (currently the Senate majority leader) and Andru Volinsky (a member of the Executive Council) are both highly qualified to serve as our next governor. Please join me in electing a Democratic governor for the state of New Hampshire.
