Chris Sununu on Crime

 

 


Supports capital punishment, to support crime victims

New Hampshire became the 21st state to ban capital punishment as the state Senate voted 16-8 to override the governor's veto of a death-penalty repeal. Sixteen votes in the 24-member chamber were required to override the veto.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, a staunch opponent of repeal, cited law enforcement and families of crime victims in his reaction to the override vote. "I am incredibly disappointed that the Senate chose to override my veto," the governor said in a statement. Death penalty opponents withstood a strong lobbying effort by Sununu and active members of law enforcement throughout the state. Sununu came within one vote of having his veto sustained in the House, which voted last week to override the veto, 247-123, just meeting the two-thirds requirement. Repeal of the death penalty was a major initiative for the Democratic leadership in House and Senate.

Expedite critical resources to combat crime

This morning, 18 respected members of New Hampshire's law enforcement community joined together in support of Chris Sununu for Governor. The coalition highlights Sununu's broad support from New Hampshire's public safety officials: "As New Hampshire faces a debilitating drug crisis, it has never been clearer the strong support we need from a governor who will work to expedite the critical resources that enable us to quickly and safely combat crime and reduce the scourge of drugs," said a police spokesperson. "As governor, Chris Sununu will make support for law enforcement one of his top priorities."

Chris Sununu said of the announcement, "In New Hampshire, we are proud to have one of the most effective and professional law enforcement communities in the country. Our officers work tirelessly to keep our families safe and to address some our state's most complex and dangerous issues. Support for law enforcement has never been more vital."
