Far-Left Democrat Steve Marchand officially filed his candidacy for New Hampshire’s 2018 gubernatorial race today, doubling-down on his plan to reverse years of economic progress through job-killing tax hikes that would burden Granite State families.

As Mayor of Portsmouth, Marchand raised property taxes on his constituents, and since beginning his campaign, Marchand has given his full support for increasing the gas tax and reversing the business profits tax cut. To make matters worse, Marchand has even refused to take the customary pledge for New Hampshire political candidates to oppose any broad-based state income or sales taxes, breaking with tradition to pursue his Big Government agenda.

“With his firm commitment to hiking taxes on working families, Steve Marchand has embraced anti-jobs politics that would take New Hampshire backwards,” said RGA spokesman John Burke. “He can’t be trusted to lead the Granite State.”
