ACTION ALERT: FIGHT BACK on HB372 

ACTION ALERT!
Tell the Senate to vote NO on HB372!
Last week, Republicans passed an amendment to HB 372 along party lines in the Senate Election Law Committee. This bill would enact a de facto poll tax in New Hampshire by requiring voters to declare residency and acquire a license upon registering to vote. This is a BLATANT attack on students’ legal right to vote in New Hampshire, an effort clearly designed to help Republicans win elections they know they can’t win on a level playing field.
We must fight back!
TAKE ACTION by joining our upcoming phone banks to let the state Senate know to vote NO on HB 372. These calls can be done in a group or at your home. Training is available to those that need it!
PHONE BANKING STARTS TONIGHT! We will making calls on the following times:
Thursday, December 7th from 5 pm to 7 pm Tuesday, December 12th from 5 pm to 7 pm Thursday, December 14th from 5 pm to 7 pm Tuesday, December 19th from 5 pm to 7 pm Thursday, December 21st from 5 pm to 7 pm Thursday, December 28th from 5 pm to 7 pm Friday, December 29th from 5 pm to 7 pm Tuesday, January 2nd from 5 pm to 7 pm

Last month, we launched Sununu Reality Check, a project designed to hold Governor Sununu accountable for his out-of-touch policies that favor his family, friends and corporate special interests when he should be fighting for working families. We’re tired of his phony bipartisan doublespeak and his ‘aw shucks’ act, so we’re saying enough is enough. We’re focusing on five key issues: education, the economy, health care, the environment and ethics.
With an incredibly successful 2017 coming to a close, I know we can make Sununu a 1-term governor but that means making sure everyone knows what his real record is.

The bill would redefine “domicile” status for voting purposes, effectively forcing registrants to declare residency upon registering to vote, chilling the right to vote for college students in New Hampshire. By forcing students to declare residency, this bill would act as a de facto poll tax, moving the goal posts on students who are legally allowed to vote in New Hampshire.

** ———————————————————— Dear Friend,
We are so proud of our accomplishments and successes in 2017 and we could not be more thankful for all of your hard work. On Tuesday, November 7th, Democrats in Berlin, Claremont, Concord, Dover, Keene, Laconia, Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth, Rochester, and Somersworth won huge, historic victories. Thanks to every hard working candidate and everyone who knocked doors, made calls, wrote a letter to the editor, and cast their ballots, New Hampshire Democrats have won 8 out of 10 special elections this year. If we continue to organize and recruit strong candidates in every town, we will have huge gains across the state in 2018.
Last week, we launched Sununu Reality Check, a project designed to hold Governor Sununu accountable for his out-of-touch policies that favor his family, friends and corporate special interests when he should be fighting for working families.

NHDP Grassroots Newsletter – 11/14

View this email in your browser (mailchi.mp/nhdp/nhdp-grassroots-newsletter-550203?e=a40ec310b1)
** ———————————————————— Dear Friend,
THANK YOU to all Granite Staters who voted, volunteered and ran for office on Tuesday, November 7th!
In NH, we made HISTORY by electing Joyce Craig as the first female mayor in Manchester! In doing so, she defeated 4-term incumbent Republican Mayor Ted Gatsas, ending a 12-year run of Republican mayors in New Hampshire’s largest city.
On election day, 110 Democratic women won municipal elections across the state. Shoshanna Kelly and Gloria Timmons became the first ever women of color elected to citywide office in Nashua. Linda Harriott-Gathright joined Shoshanna becoming the first two African-American women elected to Nashua’s Board of Aldermen. Gerri Cannon became the first ever transgender elected official in Somersworth history. Jeremy Hutchinson became the first ever LGBT elected official in the history of Rochester. Somersworth Mayor Dana Hilliard, New Hampshire’s first ever openly gay mayor, was re-elected to his third term. Paul Grenier was elected to an unprecedented fifth term as Mayor of Berlin.
Also on Tuesday, Erika Connors and Brian Sullivan were both elected to New Hampshire’s House of Representatives in Hillsborough County District 15 and Sullivan County District 1, respectively. Thanks to their victories, New Hampshire Democrats have won 8 out of 10 special elections this year.
These victories are just the beginning of the amazing things we can accomplish when we turn out Democratic voters across the state. If we continue to organize and recruit strong candidates in every town, we will have huge gains across the state in 2018.
Please continue to use this regular newsletter as a tool for your local committee meetings or as a supplement to your own regular newsletter.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Senate Public & Municipal Affairs Committee Moves Forward with Broadband Infrastructure Bill (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=dfa22a4a21&e=a40ec310b1)

… “Broadband connectivity is extremely important to both businesses and residential internet users in western New Hampshire and across the rural areas of our state. We want to resolve the Broadband Municipal Financing issue and get a system in place that works for everyone—municipalities, towns and retail broadband providers. It’s been 12 years since state bonding and broadband statutes have been updated. In particular, SB 170 as amended provides for public-private partnerships to leverage greater investment in rural broadband connectivity for areas currently unserved . . . As seen in other rural states, public financing is an important catalyst for private investment. This bill adds an important tool for towns and municipalities that want to develop additional residential and commercial internet broadband connectivity.” … – Senator Jay Kahn (D-Keene)
Senator Bette Lasky Files Legislation to Close “Gatsas Loophole” (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=3a834b2c82&e=a40ec310b1)

… “Our laws around individual political contributions are very clear—you cannot spend general election funds in a primary election. Closing the so-called ‘Gatsas loophole’ will ensure that any political candidate who violates the law will face penalties if they do so . . . Last April, the Attorney General’s office determined that Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas violated RSA 664:4, V(1) when he illegally spent $68,000 in general election funds over the course of his 2016 primary election campaign for governor. The Attorney General’s office stated that ‘a civil penalty may well have been warranted’, but the legislature has chosen not to provide this office the statutory authority to assess a civil fine in such circumstances . . . Free and fair elections are a hallmark of our democracy and we need to ensure that we give the Attorney General the necessary authority to enforce our election laws and punish those who break them. Now that candidates know about the ‘Gatsas Loophole’, the legislature needs to take action and close it as soon as possible to prevent others from breaking our election laws without penalty” … – Senator Bette Lasky (D-Nashua)

… “It’s disappointing that Governor Sununu’s loyalty to President Trump can’t be translated into getting results for New Hampshire. Our state is on the frontlines of the opioid epidemic, and we need our governor to take a stand against this administration to fight for the needs of our first responders, healthcare professionals and communities . . . Governor Sununu has repeatedly failed to secure federal resources to address this crisis, even as he condemns the efforts of our state’s federal delegation to secure additional aid. I urge Governor Sununu to take a stand for New Hampshire and negotiate with the Trump Administration to secure more resources for our state.” … – Senate Democratic Leader Jeff Woodburn (D-Whitefield)

… “We are proud to see the bipartisan vote of the House Labor Committee to finally move forward with family and medical leave insurance legislation, as it is critical to attracting and keeping the workforce we need and to helping combat the opioid public health epidemic. We thank our colleagues in the Labor Committee for coming together to do what’s right for New Hampshire families. Senate Democrats will continue to advocate strongly for passage of this important and necessary legislation in January in the House.” … – Senator Dan Feltes (D-Concord) and Senator Martha Fuller Clark (D-Portsmouth)

… “Today’s vote by the House Labor committee was an important step to making paid family leave a reality here in New Hampshire.

Democrats Decry Partisan Votes That Could Set New Hampshire Energy Policy Back 20 Years (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=3443201ae3&e=a40ec310b1)

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, Democratic members of the House Science, Technology and Energy Committee denounced partisan votes on legislation that would disrupt the energy economy and harm advances in clean and efficient energy:
Ranking Democrat Bob Backus (D-Manchester): “The high cost of energy is a major complaint of people in this state. The best answer is to maximize energy efficiency and help people lower their usage and their electric bills. These bills would do great harm to those efforts if they become law.”
Representative Jackie Cali-Pitts (D-Portsmouth): “In 22 years serving on this committee, I have never seen such disregard for scientific and economic fact. The bills recommended by the committee today will set our state back 20 years. At a time when we should be expanding clean energy, our actions are moving the state back and harming New Hampshire’s job market.”
Representative Suzanne Harvey (D-Nashua): “The legislature’s efforts 10 years ago on renewable energy provided our state with hundreds of jobs in a renewable energy economy. Any effort to undermine those efforts hurts our state’s workforce, and creates an unstable environment that discourages investment in a rapidly growing sector. Today’s actions will only discourage the young people that New Hampshire needs to attract from moving to and investing in our state.”
Representative Marjorie Shepardson (D-Marlborough): “This year in the legislature, there has been a pattern of undermining efforts to bring a clean energy future to NH. Bills to repeal the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and underfund energy efficiency will impede our goal of achieving 25% renewable energy by the year 2025 and destabilize the growing energy economy.”
Representative Peter Somssich (D-Portsmouth): “Given my scientific background, I believed the committee I was joining would be less partisan and more focused on factual evidence. I was wrong. This committee is judging things politically, not scientifically. This approach has resulted in an underfunding of our most effective energy efficiency programs, including low-income energy efficiency audits.”

… “President Trump’s decision to end cost-sharing reduction payments will dramatically hurt New Hampshire families’ ability to afford and access the health insurance they need. The Trump administration’s varied attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and its protections are shameful and it is abundantly clear that this effort is an attempt to settle a political score rather than act in the best interest of the American people . . . Today, we are calling on Governor Sununu and New Hampshire’s Republican legislative leaders to pass a reinsurance program to provide as much relief as possible to Granite Staters who will see premiums go up an average of 20% next year as a result of President Trump’s decision to cancel CSR payments. We are also calling on New Hampshire’s Attorney General Gordon MacDonald to join Attorneys General across the country who are promising to sue the Trump administration to protect cost-sharing reductions. We will work with anyone, anywhere to make sure Granite Staters continue to see the protections and guarantees they have received under the Affordable Care Act and fight back against President Trump’s destructive sabotage.” … – Senate Democratic Leader Jeff Woodburn (D-Whitefield), Senate Deputy Democratic Leader Donna Soucy (D-Manchester), House Democratic Leader Steve Shurtleff (D-Penacook) and House Deputy Democratic Leader Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua)

… “The decision by the House Rules Committee today was a cowardly display of the Republican party choosing to put politics ahead of the people of New Hampshire. This proposal on bump stocks clearly met the criteria provided in House Rules for late introduction of legislation. The Republican majority failed to site a single legitimate reason for blocking this proposal, and have shirked their responsibility to the citizens of New Hampshire by attempting to push this important debate onto the state Senate . . . Most people in this country, including myself, had no idea what a bump stock was prior to the tragedy in Las Vegas. Given the very real risk of copycat criminals seeking out these devices to carry out their own attack, it is imperative that we act now to protect public safety . . . An individual circumvented the law to carry out the deadliest shooting in American history. The time to act is now. New Hampshire’s Republican leaders have chosen to stick their heads in the sand at a time that our state, and our country, desperately needs real leadership. Today’s decision by the House Rules Committee was shameful.” … – House Democratic Leader Steve Shurtleff (D-Penacook)

… “I thank Speaker Jasper for his service over twelve terms to the people of New Hampshire, and I commend him on his willingness to lead the Department of Agriculture . . The Speaker’s decision to step down offers an opportunity for new leadership, and I will be running to be the next Speaker of the House . . . When I am out in the community, people constantly express a desire for leaders who are willing to work together for the good of New Hampshire. At a time when political discourse is too often driven by the extremes, I believe that my track record of bipartisanship can bring the legislature together in a productive way. I look forward to discussing my qualifications with my House colleagues.” … – House Democratic Leader Steve Shurtleff (D-Penacook)

============================================================ Copyright © 2017 NHDP Grassroots Chair, All rights reserved. As we enter the 2017 legislative session, we will need all hands-on-deck to push back on the Republican leadership who have already made it clear that they will focus on Right-to-Work (for less), restricting voting access, and other priorities that the people of New Hampshire do not want. My job over the next two years as the NHDP Grassroots Chair will be to keep local Democrats informed and engaged during the 2017-2018 legislative session, and I need your help!
