Manchester Mayor Gatsas says Bragdon must choose between leading LGC or Senate
"I believe that being the Senate President and the dean at the LGC, that it was a conflict, because certainly they are lobbyists (and) they are always in and out of that office talking to the Senate President," Mayor Ted Gatsas said he told radio talk show Jack Heath.
Gatsas, a Republican, was a guest on Heath's New Hampshire Today Show this morning when, according to the mayor, Heath asked me about the Peter Bragdon situation.
"I think he should make a choice one way or another," Gatsas said of Bragdon, a Milford Republican. "People are questioning it.
"In my opinion, the Senate institution is something we should hold in very high regard," said Gatsas, a former state Senator.
Still, Gatsas said, he would never presume to tell Bragdon what to do.
"I would never give a message one way or another. That would be something he would have to determine," Gatsas said.
Bragdon on Wednesday said he had no plans to resign his Senate post and blamed party politics for the perception of any conflicts of interest.
