Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek issued the following statement after vulnerable District 1 Councilor Mike Cryans announced he would obstruct Governor Chris Sununu’s pick to the New Hampshire Supreme Court:

“Let’s be clear: Councilor Cryans voted to block Attorney General Gordon MacDonald to the New Hampshire Supreme Court because he had the integrity to prosecute and file charges against disgraced North Country State Senator Jeff Woodburn," said Chairman Stepanek. "This unprecedented vote of obstruction is Councilor Cryans’ way of paying back his dues to Ray Buckley and the Democratic machine, who are still reeling from losing the North Country Senate seat last election. Today's announcement of Cryans' intended vote sends a chilling message to those who have the courage to take on entrenched politicians who are accused of misconduct.”
