Dear friend,

This week in Washington the world was exposed to liar Corey Lewandowski who admitting to lying repeatedly to the public after being subpoenaed to testify in front of Congress. Our Senator Jeanne Shaheen is working across the aisle to make a difference for Granite Staters, announcing new legislation pushing PFAS protection for NH's fire fighters and passing an amendment to fund 2020 election security. We're excited to get to work to re-elect her, and we'll make sure #LiarLewandowski gets nowhere near the U.S. Senate.

This week in Concord, our legislators in the House and Senate voted to override Governor Sununu’s vetoes of bills that would have raised the minimum wage, provided paid family medical leave, enacted common sense gun laws, and so much more to improve the lives of Granite Staters.

Though many of the vetoes were not overridden, our legislators’ incredible efforts to create these bills and get them passed will not go unnoticed. Granite Staters know that unlike Sununu, who vetoed over 50 bills to please his corporate special interest donors, our Democratic legislators work for the people of New Hampshire, and I am so proud of the work Democrats in the House and Senate have done this session.

Now, we cannot allow the past week to deter us. We must continue fighting for legislation that creates an economy that works for everyone – not just the top 1 percent.

And we can start by taking this fight to our communities across the state - by writing letters to the editor, sharing our progress on social media, speaking at community events, and reminding Granite Staters that Sununu sold us out to special interests and corporations, and that we need to vote him and his reckless agenda out of the Corner Office, and elect more Democrats to the State House.

We can do this.

All the best,

Raymond Buckley, Chair
New Hampshire Democratic Party

At the New Hampshire Democratic Party
There is a lot at stake in our local and state elections THIS year. We need to make sure Naomi Andrews gets elected to represent Epping as its next State Representative in the special election on October 8th, and we need to re-elect our wonderful mayors and municipal leaders across the state. Sign up below to help elect Democrats up and down the ballot!

Sign up to canvass or phone bank for Naomi Andrews!

Join us in Keene, Nashua, and Dover this weekend at a canvass near you to support local Democrats!

And thank you to everyone who came out to support Mayor Joyce Craig! On Tuesday, Mayor Criag won 57% of the vote - the largest percent of the vote won by a Mayoral candidate in a primary in over 20 years. Because of your hard work, she is set to run an aggressive campaign focused on the work she has done to strengthen Manchester's schools, grow the cities economy, and effectively combat the opioid crisis.

Save the date: The New Hampshire Democratic Party Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner is Saturday, October 26th. More details to come at nhdp.org!


In the State House

Democrats this week proposed a compromise budget for New Hampshire. Within seconds, Chris Sununu dismissed it, and on Thursday, Republicans in the House voted to not even allow a discussion on it. It’s clear that Chris Sununu’s goal is not to govern, but to shut down the government altogether and deny Granite Staters property tax relief just to get bigger tax breaks for corporations. Call Chris Sununu at (603) 271-2121 and tell him he needs to support the legislature’s budget now.

In Washington

Senator Shaheen has been the target of ads from dark money groups attacking her for fighting to end surprise medical bills that are hurting Granite Staters. Senator Shaheen will not be intimidated by Wall Street firms that care more about profits than people, and she will continue working to improve the lives of Granite Staters by ending surprise medical bills.

Senator Hassan introduced The Prevent Evictions Act which would help landlords and tenants reach fair agreements to keep Granite State families in their homes. This is part of Senator Hassan’s work to address rising rents and unprecedented low vacancy rates in New Hampshire.

Congresswoman Kuster’s bill to create a new grant program to install carbon monoxide alarms in the homes of elderly and low-income individuals, as well as in schools and other public facilities, passed in the House this week. This bill will help prevent carbon monoxide deaths in New Hampshire.

Congressman Pappas was appointed to serve as a Conferee to negotiate the final National Defense Authorization Act, which provides him the opportunity to hold polluters of toxic PFAS chemicals accountable and support Portsmouth Naval Shipyard workers.
