Alderman Dan O’Neil Endorses Patrick Arnold for Mayor
Manchester, NH –  Patrick Arnold’s campaign for mayor announced today that Alderman At-Large Dan O’Neil has endorsed Arnold’s candidacy.
“I’m proud to support Patrick’s campaign for mayor because we share some important values,” said O’Neil. “We share the belief that our city can do better, that we need responsible leadership at City Hall, and that our leaders should always put the people’s best interest first. I have seen Patrick in action as an Alderman, and I trust that he will fight tirelessly for our community. This campaign is important because our city is at a crossroads. We have the opportunity to move forward as a leader in education, job creation, economic development, and quality of life. I’m looking forward to working with Patrick and the people of Manchester to win this race and give our city the leadership we deserve.”
“Dan’s support means a lot to this campaign,” said Arnold. “The people of Manchester appreciate the incredible work Dan does on the Board of Aldermen, and they know they can trust him to make the right choices for our city. Dan and I share the belief that Manchester can do better. Mayor Gatsas likes to say that everything is fine in Manchester, but Dan and I know we can do better than just meet minimum standards. I’m running for mayor because we need new leadership at City Hall, and I’m proud to have Alderman Dan O’Neil in my corner for this campaign.”

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.
