Gov. Chris Sununu continued to advocate spending $52 million for standalone infrastructure projects across New Hampshire during a stop in Claremont on Monday afternoon.
Speaking before a room of lawmakers and city and school officials at the Arrowhead Recreation Area, the two-term Republican framed the one-time grants included in his proposed budget as an investment in communities, including Claremont, that otherwise couldn’t afford needed upgrades to roads and buildings.
He also took aim at Democrats’ plans to redirect the money for education, saying the move could deplete state coffers during an economic downturn.
