OVER HALF OF GOVERNOR SUNUNU’S COUNCIL ON DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION RESIGNS

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – More than half of Governor Sununu’s Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion resigned today in a letter voicing opposition to the Governor’s signing of a budget that includes “Divisive Concepts” language restricting free speech. Member of the advisory council, Representative Jim Maggiore (D-North Hampton) released the following statement following his resignation:

“As both a member of this council and as a legislator, I could not in good conscience support language restricting the free speech of Granite Staters. The work to create a more diverse and inclusive community will continue regardless of the Governor’s politics. The members of the Council made a commitment to the residents of New Hampshire to make a difference in this state. We will continue in our efforts to fulfill that promise.”
