Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund (PPNHAF) is pleased that Granite State voters elected four pro-reproductive health members to the Executive Council, three of whom were endorsed by PPNHAF PAC:

  • Mike Cryans, District 1
  • Andru Volinsky, District 2
  • Russell Prescott, District 3
  • Debora Pignatelli, District 5

 One year ago today, Councilors Volinksy, Prescott, and Pappas voted to support family planning contracts that came before the Executive Council. Councilors Joe Kenney (District 1) and David Wheeler (District 5) opposed the contracts, risking essential health care services to over 11,000 patients that Planned Parenthood of Northern New England serves annually. Both councilors were not reelected on Tuesday.

 Planned Parenthood NH Action Fund ran grassroots campaigns to ensure that constituents of their districts understood what was at stake for reproductive health in the race for Executive Council. Voters of the Granite State showed on Tuesday that councilors who try to take away essential care and make our communities less healthy will be held accountable at the polls.

This new majority on the Executive Council ensures that the people of New Hampshire will continue to be represented by a Council that puts the health and safety of its communities first. 

Statement from Kayla Montgomery, Director of Advocacy and Organizing, Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund:

“We’re thrilled that the Executive Council will continue to be represented by a majority of pro-reproductive health councilors. The stakes for reproductive health could not be higher, and Granite Staters made clear that they will not support extreme councilors who repeatedly attempt to take away their care. Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund will never stop fighting to protect the essential care that patients rely on, and educating voters about these councilors’ tremendous responsibilities. We’re thankful for the councilors-elect who campaigned on a vision of a healthier New Hampshire, and are eager to work with them as we move our state forward.”
