This week we’re looking at jobs – specifically, what the candidates for New Hampshire governor would do about them. Today All Things Considered host Brady Carlson talks to the Libertarian nominee, John Babiarz.
Ask any voter, or candidate for political office, this election cycle about the top campaign issue, and you’re bound to hear “jobs, jobs, jobs.”
As such, we'll talk with each candidate for governor about how they plan to improve New Hampshire’s economy and create jobs. We begin with Republican candidate Ovide Lamontagne, who has dubbed his economic plan the "Prosperity Agenda." He speaks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson.
Think about how anti-gay marriage rhetoric played a critical role in George W. Bush’s re-election in 2004, or how talking up a surging economy made Bill Clinton the first two-term democratic president since Franklin Roosevelt won in 1936.
Flanked by Former Governors John Sununu, Steve Merrill, and Craig Benson, Ovide Lamontagne told a boisterous crowd at Browns’ Lobster Pound in Seabrook, that the GOP needs to recapture the office its held for only two of the last 16 years. Lamontagne heaped special praise on Benson, N.H.'s last Republican Governor.
The State Attorney General’s office announced today that more than 43,000 TD Bank customers in New Hampshire are at risk of identity theft. The bank can’t locate two tapes containing sensitive data shipped between locations back in March.
TD Bank is offering new accounts free of charge and a year of credit monitoring to affected customers.
In total, the bank is notifying more than 250,000 customers on the east coast about the breach.
New Hampshire labor unions are calling on Congressmen Bass and Guinta to avert automatic budget cuts, laid out in a deficit reduction deal between Democrats and Republicans last year. As things stand now, on January 1st mandatory budget cuts will be imposed on defense spending, Medicare, and discretionary spending – unless the current members of Congress do something to stop them.
No matter who wins on November 6th, President of the New Hampshire AFL-CIO Mark Mackenzie says, it will be this year’s lame duck Congress who will have to deal with automatic cuts.
The suspect charged in the death of UNH student Lizzi Marriott will be arraigned in Dover District court Monday.
At a press conference Saturday afternoon, authorities revealed they had information confirming the 19-year-old's death, but that they have yet to recover her body.
"This is still an active and ongoing investigation. We are, at this point only 24 hours in and, as you are aware, the search for her was ongoing for a period of about two days or so. But now, obviously, that has changed."
