Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Governor Maggie Hassan to withdraw the nomination of Teamster lobbyist and political coordinator Dennis Caza to the state Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission. The Union Leader today reported on conflicts of interest that could be generated by his confirmation.
“In order to uphold public trust in the Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission, Governor Hassan needs to immediately withdraw her nomination of a prominent Teamster political organizer and lobbyist. The appointment of a Hassan political crony who is beholden to union bosses and special interest groups would undermine confidence in the work of the commission.”
“Granite Staters expect Governor Hassan to appoint qualified and independent individuals to positions in state government. They do not want the governor to stack boards and commissions with patronage appointments who will stand with well-funded special interest groups instead of standing up for the people of New Hampshire.”

Teens Robbed of I-pod/Cell Phone


MANCHESTER, NH- On Monday, February 11, 2013, at about 6:30 PM, Manchester Police responded to a Clay Street address for a report of a robbery.  On arrival, they met with two 16 year old Manchester teens who reported they had been the victims of a robbery a short time earlier on Somerville Street, near Belmont Street.


According to the boys, they were walking in the area when they were approached by two men, one of whom demanded their belongings, indicating his companion had a gun, although no gun was observed.


One of the boys surrendered his I-pod Nano and Galaxy S3 cell phone and the men left.  They were last seen leaving the area as passengers in an older, dark colored 4-door sedan operated by a third individual who was possibly wearing a red sweatshirt.


The first suspect was described as a white male in his forties, about 6’3” tall with a slender build and dark “stubble” on his face.  He was last seen wearing a dark colored vest and a green “beanie” style hat.  The second man, alleged to have possessed a gun, was described as a clean-shaven white male in his forties with an average height and build.  He was last seen wearing a camouflage shirt and khaki pants.
