In the closing days of the campaign for Governor, Walt Havenstein says he continues to promote his message of economic growth for New Hampshire to undecided voters.
In an interview with NH1 Radio News Director Jeff Wade, Havenstein also talked about the recent controversy surrounding Ebola quaratines. Governor Hassan announced this week a policy that called on those returning from Africa who have been in contact with an Ebola patient to self-quarantine at home for 21 days.
Havenstein doesn't think that goes far enough. "Frankly, for our citizens a mandatory quarantine would be appropriate," he said.
Asked how he would handle a situation similar to what's happening in Maine with nurse Kaci Hickox, who's refusing to self-quarantine, Havenstein said, "We would do what action we would need to take to make sure the public is safe given the uncertainty of this disease."
Havenstein also reiterated his opposition to casino gambling as a source of revenue, saying, "You can't use a casino as the backbone or cornerstone of economic growth for our state. It won't work."
On the subject of wind power, Havenstein said he was opposed to the wind project in Berlin approved this week by the Executive Council, calling wind power an inefficient energy source and suggesting that the project would bring only a handful of jobs to the area.
