Hassan should be honest about National Guard troubles

?How long is the media going to let Gov. Maggie Hassan get away with dodging questions? The alleged problems at the New Hampshire National Guard are just the latest example. It’d be bad enough if the governor’s answer was “I don’t know,” but are we really going to let her get away with, “I don’t have to tell you.”

Even if she’s not legally obligated to answer reporters’ questions, she owes it to the people of this state to explain what she’s doing to fix the problems at the guard. Refusing to be honest with voters because there’s no law that says you have to is hardly the kind of leadership I want in Concord.
