Cornerstone Statement on Election of Governor Sununu

Cornerstone congratulates Governor-elect Chris Sununu. We believe he’s ready to listen to the concerns of New Hampshire families.

We’ve taken strong exception to Mr. Sununu’s votes to send taxpayer dollars to abortion providers. Even so, we take him at his word that he is open to policies to enhance patient safety for women choosing abortion. Unlike his opponent in the governor’s race, he is willing to defend the First Amendment rights of New Hampshire men and women who choose to demonstrate peacefully, which is a right threatened by the still-unenforced buffer zone law.

Where the education of New Hampshire’s children is concerned, families can take heart at Mr. Sununu’s support for more involvement by parents and less by the federal government.

This is a promising start. Cornerstone and its supporters statewide look forward to working with Governor-elect Sununu on public policy that strengthens New Hampshire families.
