Jon Hopwood for Hillsborough, NH County Treasurer
Organized by: Jon Hopwood
I am a Democrat running for the position of Hillsborough, New Hampshire County Treasurer in order to bring about greater transparency in county government.
The state of New Hampshire ranks near the bottom in terms of the transparency of our government entities. The Granite State also has a weak whistleblower law, which should be strengthened.
Whistleblowing laws are one of the most effective tools for uncovering and eliminating fraud, waste and abuse in government. I ask you to help me save your tax dollars by promoting a more honest and effective government.
The situation at the Hillsborough County Jail (Valley Street Jail in Manchester) is scandalous and has opened up the County to possible multi-million dollar recoveries. As County Treasurer, I will work to reform the pinch-penny policies and backward philosophy that has enabled this morally and financially hazardous situation.
