As we hinted at yesterday, a Citizen’s Petition Warrant Article has come forward to overturn the Gender Non-Conforming policy adopted earlier this year by the Candia School Board.   It was presented at the board’s meeting last night by parent Dana Buckley, the Candia Budget Committee member whose requests for public information about the cost of the legal scuffle the Candia School Board got into with the Manchester School District over tuition payments have largely been denied by school board chair Nicole LaFlamme.  While state law only requires a citizens petition warrant article to be signed by twenty five residents of the town, Buckley’s petition was signed by one hundred seventy nine. Buckley said he presented the petition because the board, by a four to one vote, ignored the vast majority of parents and citizens who had concerns with the policy and wanted time to review alternatives, such as the construction of a single stall bathroom, and come up with a compromise that secured the rights of all Candia’s students.  At the time of the vote, the board not only faced several speakers opposed, but was also presented with a petition that had four hundred signatures from those opposed as well.  When asked whether or not the policy would come back before for discussion,  LaFlamme said no, noting that it had been adopted. Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn...

Emails obtained by the Republican State Committee via a Right to Know Request seem to indicate that the fix was in for Dartmouth Hitchcock Health to get a thirty seven million dollar contract from the state to manage New Hampshire Hospital, the state’s mental health facility.  The emails contained several communications between state and Dartmouth officials about the wording of a request for proposals to manage the facility.  Critics of the recently awarded contract, including several high level administrators and caregivers at the state facility, have charged the process was rigged to exclude all other potential bidders. In response to the information received, state G O P Chair Jennifer Horn announced that she will  file a complaint with the state’s Executive Branch Ethics Committee and ask them to investigate what she called, quote, “the growing pay-to-play scandal engulfing the Hassan administration.”  In making her announcement, Horn referenced stories published yesterday by the Union Leader and the Nashua Telegraph, which used the information she provided from the documents obtained showing collusion between the state and Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Horn said Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Jeffrey Meyers deliberately lied about the matter when asked about it by District Three Executive Councilor Chris Sununu at the Executive Council meeting where the Dartmouth-Hitchcock contract was debated.  Horn also said the Dartmouth-Hitchcock collusion joins a growing list of pay-to-play scandals, including the controversy surrounding Centene,...

Is Governor Margaret Wood Hassan presiding over a pay to play scheme in the awarding of state contracts?  Curious minds want to know, at least on the Republican side of the aisle.  Republican State Committee Chair Jennifer Horn called on Hassan to quote “start answering questions about the growing list of no bid contracts she has awarded to her campaign donors,” charging Hassan has quote “turned the state’s contracting process into her personal A T M.”  Horn also filed Right-To-Know requests for all records pertaining to the awarding of controversial contracts to a company called Centene, which the Union Leader reported as having given Hassan tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions before and after  the company received no-bid contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and all no-bid contracts issued while Hassan’s been in office. Among the facts raising questions over the state’s involvement with Centene are the following: On December 1st, 2 0 1 3, Centene began coordinating services for N H Medicaid participants.  Two days later, Centene employees donated $34,000 to Hassan’s reelection campaign. On March 5th, 2 0 1 4, Centene donated $25,000 to the Democratic Governor’s Association, while Hassan was its vice-chair.  Two weeks later, Centene donated another $25,000, then, the very next day,  Hassan signed Medicaid Expansion. On June 6th, 2014, Centene donated anther $75,000 to the D G A, followed by another $10,000 on...
