NEA-NH congratulates Senator Dan Feltes on his victory in yesterday’s Democratic primary for Governor. We look forward to working with him during the coming weeks to make sure he becomes the next Governor of New Hampshire.
Andru Volinsky ran a strong campaign that helped highlight many of the issues our public schools face every day. NEA-NH thanks Councilor Volinsky for spending more than 30 years fighting for safe schools, adequate and fair school funding, and insisting that the state meet its obligation to provide all students with access to quality public education.
This November’s election may be one of the most critical in our lifetimes. Public school students, educators and their families cannot afford to have Chris Sununu remain in office for another term.
Governor Sununu appointed an anti-public education, Betsy DeVos ally, to serve as the New Hampshire Commissioner of Education. Since then, Commissioner Edelblut has focused his efforts on everything but the well-being of public schools.
The Governor also supported Commissioner Edelblut’s efforts to divert taxpayer COVID relief funds to private and religious schools.
Chris Sununu opposed additional aid to school districts during last year’s budget battle, which would have provided taxpayers relief from a too underfunded school system and when it was passed over his objections, he tried to take credit for the additional money.
His priorities are wrong, and his agenda is anti-public education. This November, if students are to come out on top, we need to elect leaders, in Washington and Concord, who will stand strong for public education.
