The New Hampshire House Republican Alliance announced last week that it has elected two new co-chairs for the upcoming legislative session.
The group of conservative Republicans said that state Rep. Nancy Elliot (R-Merrimack) was re-elected as co-chair and state Reps. Robert Mead (R-Mount Vernon) and William O'Brien (R-Mount Vernon) were also elected co-chairs of the group.
Mead and O'Brien will replace state Reps. D.J. Bettencourt (R-Salem) and Andrew Renzullo (R-Hudson), who have been appointed to leadership positions within the House Republican caucus.
State Rep. Laurie Boyce (R-Alton) was re-elected to be the group's secretary and treasurer.
"Democrat legislative leadership and Gov. Lynch failed to prevent and, indeed, often promoted the extreme social and special interest laws enacted over the last session," O'Brien said in a press release. "Republicans in the NH House have their work cut out for them because we see more such radical and special interest legislation is being filed by the radical wing of the Democratic Party."
O'Brien added, "We look forward to working with the leadership of the House Republican caucus to protect the people of New Hampshire from these irresponsible fiscal and social policies."
The House Republican Alliance is comprised of Republicans who argue that legislators should support bills that are fiscally responsible and does not raise taxes.
