NEA-NH Recommends Education Champion Hilliard for Somersworth Mayor

CONCORD, NH – OCTOBER 25, 2021- During his time as Mayor of Somersworth, Mayor Hilliard has used his voice as an elected leader to fight for more funding for public education and partnered with NEA-NH to expose school voucher schemes that threaten to damage our kids’ education and raise property taxes.

Letters from Members: Not Up to the Challenge

This letter is in response to Rep. Moffett’s recent words and actions.  He suggested that his party is the one that should be trusted to oversee the education of our children to ensure they are successful in the 21st Century. He also stated that the NEA does not have the best interest of our students and educators at its core. With all due respect, Rep. Moffett, you are incorrect on both counts. Those who disparage my Union tell me that “we love teachers – we just don’t like it when they band together.” These words sound innocent, but they undermine the provision of a great public education. Individual educators find it difficult to stand up to bad educational policies and unfair working conditions. Together we have always accomplished more. Rep.

One that consistently ends poorly in states that have passed similar laws. Private schools in Florida now rake in close to $1 billion a year in public money. A voucher scheme like the one recently enacted here in New Hampshire is responsible for this dramatic diversion of public funds to help wealthy families in Florida pay their private school tuition bills. “Thanks to Governor Sununu and Commissioner Edelblut, New Hampshire property taxpayers will now be funding their local schools and the private and religious
