Gov. Chris Sununu’s budget contains a smorgasbord of items for communities across the state, including $3.8 million for Laconia projects, but representatives say much of this money is not likely to make it through the Democratically controlled legislature.
Rep. David Huot, D-Laconia, said some of the Republican governor’s promised spending was merely a political exercise.
“It’s 100 percent political,” Huot said. “The governor is either running for re-election, or running for the Senate, or something. He’s looking to do stuff that will gain him political points in various parts of the state and help politicians of his party gain favor as well.”
