Americans for Tax Reform congratulates New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu on winning reelection.
Gov. Sununu signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge back in 2016, when he first ran for governor, making a written promise to the people of New Hampshire that he will oppose and veto any and all tax increases. While in office, Gov. Sununu has stood strong against the many Democrat-led efforts to raise taxes.
Underscoring his commitment to taxpayers, Gov. Sununu and New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald recently filed a lawsuit in the United States Supreme Court against Massachusetts, whose Department of Revenue is actively trying to export taxes onto Granite Staters. For more information on this dangerous tax grab by Massachusetts, read Grover Norquist’s, president of Americans for Tax Reform, OpEd in the Union Leader here.
“Gov. Sununu is a true ally to New Hampshire taxpayers,” said Norquist. “From Democrats in the state legislature to the tax collectors in Massachusetts, Gov. Sununu always puts up a strong fight against anyone who tries to take more hard-earned tax dollars from New Hampshire taxpayers.”
Now, when lawmakers convene next legislative session to tackle a number of issues brought on by the Coronavirus, New Hampshire taxpayers can rest easy knowing that they still have an ally in the Governor’s mansion. In addition, the New Hampshire General Court flipped back to Republican control, with a number of pledge signers in both the state house and state senate.
Americans for Tax Reform offers the Pledge to all candidates for state and federal office. In addition to Gov. Chris Sununu, 12 other sitting governors are signers of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
New candidates sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge regularly. For the most up-to-date information on these races or any other, please visit the ATR Pledge Database.
