ICYMI: National News Covers Volinsky Challenging Sununu for Lack of Mask Requirements to Help Save Lives
Newsweek Notes Volinsky Leadership in Also Challenging Sununu No-bid Contracts
CONCORD, N.H. — National outlet Newsweek featured Executive Councilor and candidate for governor Andru Volinsky’s challenge to Governor Sununu at Wednesday’s Executive Council meeting for refusing to consider a business-enforced mask order for employees and customers alike.
- “Governor Chris Sununu told Executive Council member Andru Volinsky that New Hampshire is “not in a position to say a mask-wearing order is appropriate at this time” after Volinsky demanded such an order be issued at a meeting on Wednesday.”
- “In a statement sent to Newsweek, Volinsky said he is “extremely disappointed” in the governor. “When I asked, he refused to use his leadership to call for a mask order, and refused to speak out against the ‘Reopen NH’ rallies at the state house,” Volinsky said.
- “Volinsky, who is also a Democratic candidate for Governor in New Hampshire, has previously demanded greater transparency and accountability from the governor’s COVID-19 relief spending. In recent weeks, Sununu has authorized millions in spending without oversight from the Executive Council.”
