CONCORD – Today, Deputy Democratic Leader Cindy Rosenwald pushed back on the partisanship shown by newly elected House Speaker Packard during his speech to accept the nomination for Speaker of the House.
Deputy Democratic Leader Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua) issued the following statement in response:
“Earlier today, the New Hampshire Senate, in an outpouring of bipartisanship, unanimously passed Senate Bill 2, which will allow us to better serve New Hampshire voters during these trying times. Meanwhile, in the New Hampshire House, partisanship took center stage as the newly elected Speaker used his platform to create fear and division over issues that neither Democrats nor Republicans have supported in my 16 years serving in the New Hampshire Legislature. In his speech, Speaker Packard made a passionate call against raising taxes, which should take into account all taxes. House and Senate Democrats remain committed to protecting our property tax payers, and I look forward to seeing his budget plan that lowers property taxes and avoids the downshifting of costs from our budget shortfall to our municipalities. What our constituents need now is meaningful COVID-19 recovery and relief, not partisan talking points."
