MANCHESTER - Leave it to the feisty Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, D-Manchester, to light a fire at the Labor Day Breakfast on a day when politics was front and center.
"Politics is a kick-ass, rock-and-roll business, and you have to kick ass and you’ve got to rock and roll in order to make it happen,’’ the long-time state senator said.
Hours before Republican Councilor Chris Sununu surprises Democrats by announcing for governor, the Democratic incumbent admits her agenda is unfinished.
"And while there are many encouraging signs that the economy is moving in the right direction we know there is more work to be done to ensure that all of our citizens are included in our shared prosperity," said Gov. Maggie Hassan.
Councilor Colin Van Ostern says the end of the Fairpoint strike by telephone workers, the longest one in the country, was a victory for workers and not corporate owners.
"They have the money but we the people, the workers, the citizens, that we have the numbers," Van Ostern said.
And Councilor Chris Pappas says benefits for workers make companies stronger not financially weaker.
"Businesses do well when employees earn a good wage; businesses do well when employees have paid vacations, when they have health care coverage. The workplace is not a zero sum game," Pappas concluded.
