Steven Cunningham State Representative
Sullivan District 2


July 7, 2010

Steven Cunningham represents the towns of Springfield, Croydon, Newport, Goshen and Washington in the NH House of Representatives. 

Representative Cunningham is a member of the House Committee on Municipal and County Government.


... and it's partly my fault. I voted for the county budget. The reason the budget almost had to go up is the cost-shifting from the state budget (which I voted against) to the county. We did essentially level fund grants. Next year, I would like to see some cuts here. We denied raises for many positions. Some spending will save money in the long run.

The real problem with the county budget is next year's budget. The state budget is going to be a disaster, which will mean even more cost-shifting from the state to the county. The county does not have a lot of fat in its budget to cut. Cost-shifting to Sullivan County pretty much means increased property taxes to our residents. The key to a decent budget next year will be lower spending at the state level where we do have a lot of fat. I need all my constituents to support me next year on our state-wide fiscal diet. Jenny Craig for governor.
