Sen. John Gallus, a Republican from Berlin, has joined only four North Country members of the House in supporting a bill that would give a business a tax credit when it donates to a parochial or private school.
Less than two weeks after Sen. John Gallus, a Republican from Berlin, said he wouldn’t seek another term representing the North Country two Democrats say they would like to take his place.
They are Jeff Woodburn and Paul Ingersoll, each of whom has previously served in the House of Representatives.
Woodburn, 47, is a free-lance reporter and owns White Mountain News.com. Before that he had a real estate business focusing on historical buildings and was a teacher. The Whitefield native lives with his family in Dalton.
Sen. John Gallus, a Republican from Berlin who represents the North Country, was among those voting last week not to override Gov. Lynch’s veto of so-called payday loans.
As NHPR reported“The measure would have lifted the current 36% interest rate cap on small loans. In place of that cap, Senator Matt Houde told colleagues companies could charge borrowers up to 403% interest.
For years the North Country’s Senator - John Gallus (R-Berlin) - has favored turning the Cannon Mountain ski area over to a private firm. But Gallus says on Wednesday he’ll vote against a bill that would explore the idea.
