CONCORD – On Friday, January 8th, Senator Lou D’Allesandro sent a letter to Governor Chris Sununu once again calling for transparency in the state’s handling of the COVID-19 outbreak at the New Hampshire Veterans Home that claimed the lives of 37 residents. This letter follows a previous request for information from the governor’s office made on December 21st per Article 1, Part 8 of New Hampshire’s Constitution that has yet to receive a response.
“In the past few weeks, I have listened as the families and loved ones of residents at the New Hampshire Veterans Home expressed their concerns that the state has not done enough to protect and care for our veterans. Last month, I asked Governor Sununu to help address their concerns by providing transparency in how the state had been addressing this crisis. That request has gone unanswered. Our veterans dedicated their lives to protecting our state and our country. It is our job now to do everything in our power to return the service and offer them the care they deserve. I am once again calling on the Governor to provide clarity and transparency and would hope that in the light of the significant loss faced by these families, the call is answered.”
