Grassroots Newsletter 7/9


View this email in your browser

Dear Friend,

We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable Fourth of July and are back from the break ready to elect Democrats because we have a lot of work to do!

In the past few weeks we’ve had highs and lows. We found out that President Trump would get to pick another Supreme Court Justice with Anthony Kennedy’s retirement and we’ve seen images and heard stories of children locked up in cages. This comes in addition to Governor Sununu vetoing bills that would have saved three biomass companies, all of which are now planning on closing, because that’s what his corporate donors wanted.

But, despite these tough times, Democrats have been active and engaged like never before. We had an incredible first Day of Action where volunteers laid the groundwork for an eventual sweep in the coming elections. We also saw Granite Staters come together to protest Trump’s horrific immigration policies and we celebrated Pride in Nashua.

Trump and Sununu will keep pushing their radical agendas whenever possible, so the best thing for us to do is to get off the sidelines and elect Democrats!

Supporter Housing


The NHDP is gearing up for our 2018 Coordinated Campaign! We are bringing on staff and volunteers to support our Town and County committees to turn out the vote in November. We need your help finding places for them to stay. Whether it is for a week or through election day – any little bit helps. Please fill out THIS FORM if you are able to house a volunteer or staff member.

Sununu Reality Check

Following Governor Sununu’s veto of two energy bills late last month, three biomass plants have since announced they will shut down their operations, threatening thousands of jobs in economically vulnerable areas of New Hampshire. The plant operators are predicting devastating trickle-down impacts of this veto on the local economies of towns like Bethlehem, Ashland, and Tamworth.Sununu explained his veto by saying he was “protecting ratepayers,” which is his way of masking his political ties to big energy providers like Eversource, who donated over $50,000 to his campaign.

These vetoes fly in the face of Sununu’s promises to help New Hampshire’s economy. What can you do about this? Click here to find your state legislator. Contact them and urge them to vote to override Sununu’s veto when the time comes.

Follow Sununu Reality Check on TwitterFacebook, and check out our website ( to get updates on how we’re holding Sununu accountable.
