Congressman Frank Guinta (R-N.H.) will discuss his approach to the federal government’s fiscal challenges in an interview that will appear online at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16, as part of Fiscal Fridays, the public affairs television series on the New Hampshire-based NH1 News Network.
Guinta, who is seeking reelection in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District, will respond to questions about the growing national debt and the fiscal and economic policies he would pursue if elected. Key topics are likely to include Social Security, health care, tax reform, national defense and domestic investments.
Guinta currently serves on the Budget and Financial Services committees in Congress. He was a two-term New Hampshire state representative and was the mayor of Manchester from 2006 to 2010.
The half-hour program will appear Tuesday on the NH1 website. Segments of the interview will air the following Sunday, Aug. 21, on WBIN-TV, 99.1 NH1 News, and WEMJ 1490 AM. A video of the entire program will be available later on the NH1 website.
Paul Steinhauser, political director and anchor for NH1, will conduct the interview. Viewers can submit questions beforehand on Twitter to @NH1News using #FiscalFriday.
As previously announced, congressional candidate Jim Lawrence will be featured in the interview series this Friday, appearing on the NH1 website at 10:30 a.m.
