Governor Sununu Shares Thoughts on New Hampshire with Employees of LTC Partners

Portsmouth, NH: LTC Partners welcomed New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu to its Pease International Tradeport headquarters on September 18. During the visit, Sununu lauded LTC Partners' growing business in benefits administration and insurance services and its impact on local employment, acknowledging the company's work as a government contractor overseeing two large federal programs, the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program and BENEFEDS, an electronic marketplace for federal dental and vision coverage.

The governor also addressed employees, answered questions, and shared his thoughts on New Hampshire and his administration's goals for the state.

Insurance is on everyone's minds these days, Sununu acknowledged. "It's all we ever talk about. It all connects together in terms of where we are going in this country, in this state," he said.

Emphasizing the many in-person visits he has paid to New Hampshire citizens and companies in the early days of his term in order to hear their ideas and concerns firsthand, Sununu cited some of the ways he is working to bring new business to the state, mentioning recent trips to neighboring states and Canada to discuss the advantages New Hampshire offers to its businesses. "We have so much opportunity here. We have to go get it," he said.

The governor alluded to the many advantages that the state of New Hampshire offers to its businesses and workforce, making special note of its lack of income tax and sales tax.

Sununu also stressed his goal of ensuring that New Hampshire remains front of mind in Washington. "Of all the issues, I'm only focused on what is going to get New Hampshire the best results. Let us create our own models, let us innovate the way we know how," he remarked.

"It was an honor to host Governor Sununu and hear his ideas about making New Hampshire an even better environment for businesses and workers," said LTC Partners CEO Paul Forte. "We were happy to show the governor how LTC Partners is doing its part."
