2012 NH Gubernatorial Election: Ovide Lamontagne on the issues
On the Web
Lamontagne has taken ‘The Pledge’ to oppose any broad-based tax as Governor. He will work to review and reform the current business tax code to keep New Hampshire ahead of the competition to be the most pro-business, pro-family state in the Union.
As governor, Lamontagne will keep spending low and the budgets balanced. The years before Republicans retook the Legislature in 2010 were marked by irresponsible double digit spending and tax increase proposals. He says he will be the leader who stands up for families and business against free spending Concord special interests.
Lamontagne believes it is imperative to cut the red tape in Concord that inhibits business growth. As Governor, he will work to repeal outdated regulations, establish a 90-day moratorium on new rules and subject any proposed new regulations to a robust economic cost-benefit analysis.
One of the most significant concerns I hear from small business owners throughout New Hampshire is the high cost of energy, and how it negatively affects their ability to create jobs. He will work to further de-regulate our energy industry and introduce free market reforms to lower utility costs for our entrepreneurs and job creators.
