Governor John Lynch used his final state of the state address to ask GOP lawmakers change the tone in Concord, and to reverse course on cuts to higher education and a reduction to the state tobacco tax.
Drawing sharp lines has never been Governor Lynch’s style, but in this speech, Lynch did, repeatedly.
“The cut in the tobacco tax was nonsensical……”
“We hear from some a lot of anti-government talk, but to me that doesn’t make any sense,
Sadly, it has become too commonplace to attack state employees, and that needs to stop.”
Today marked Governor John Lynch's last State of the State address. And, as one might expect during a slow trudge toward recovery, the bulk of Lynch focused either directly or indirectly on the economy.
