Democratic NH Governor


Legalized gay marriage so same-sex couples have same rights

Encourage diversity without discrimination

Q: Affirmative Action: Should race, ethnicity or gender be taken into account in state agenciesí decisions on hiring & admissions?

A: As Governor, I will continue working to make sure we do not discriminate against any of our citizens, on any basis, and that we encourage diversity in state government and at our state institutions.
