Shaheen criticizes Brown’s energy policyConcord Monitor, October 19, 2014
U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is turning the focus to energy this week. Shaheen’s campaign today released a report highlighting votes her Republican opponent, Scott Brown, has taken on energy policy that she says will take New Hampshire in the wrong direction. And tomorrow, the state Democratic Party will host Massachusetts lawmakers and a New Hampshire energy expert to discuss Brown’s energy record.
Brown hosted his own event geared toward energy Friday when he met with a Hampton woman at her home to talk about rising energy costs. Utilities across the state are raising energy rates this winter – an average Liberty Utilities or Unitil customer can expect to see a month increase in their bill ranging from $42 to $50.
While energy hasn’t been a central issue to the campaign thus far, both candidates have outlined positions on the topic.
