Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund PAC announced September 28 that it proudly endorses Mike Cryans (District 1) and Debora Pignatelli (District 5) for the New Hampshire Executive Council. Both candidates face incumbents who have repeatedly voted to defund Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) health centers. The people of these districts deserve executive councilors, like Mike Cryans and Debora Pignatelli, who will stand up for healthy communities and support the fundamental role that Planned Parenthood plays in the health and wellness of nearly 11,000 Granite Staters.

Their opponents, incumbent Councilors Kenney and Wheeler, have consistently voted against funding PPNNE’s health centers. Most recently, in November of 2017, Councilors Kenney and Wheeler voted to reject a Title X family planning contract awarded to the state, which included PPNNE as a bidder. Fortunately, the contract passed the council despite their efforts. Additionally, both voted against funding for PPNNE health centers in 2015 and 2016, and Wheeler also voted against it in 2011. For more than 50 years, PPNNE has provided quality, affordable care to Granite Staters, yet Councilors Keeney and Wheeler have shown through their actions that they are willing to jeopardize the health of their communities for purely political purposes.  

Statement from Sabrina Dunlap, Chair, Planned Parenthood New Hampshire Action Fund PAC:

“We are proud to support Mike Cryans for Executive Council in District 1, and Debora Pignatelli for Executive Council in District 5, because they understand the vital role the Executive Council plays in making critical funding decisions about the health of our state. When elected, they will use their vote and their voice to stand with Planned Parenthood and the nearly 11,000 patients who rely on the essential health care services provided at PPNNE. Their opponents, Councilors Kenney and Wheeler, have used every opportunity to block basic health care that many of their constituents rely on, including birth control services, STI testing and treatment, and well person exams. They have shown time and time again that they are willing to jeopardize health care for lower income women and families, putting politics before healthy communities.”
