Jeanne MIA On Vote Protecting NH From Online Sales Tax
Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Senator Shaheen missing an important vote yesterday on the federal sales tax bill (Roll Call Here).
“It is unacceptable for Senator Shaheen to miss a vote on legislation that will hurt consumers and burden businesses with onerous new regulations. Shaheen’s failure to stand up for New Hampshire by voting “no” on this motion is an insult to her constituents and a dereliction of her duties as an elected federal official. Granite Staters deserve a full and complete explanation from their senior senator about why she was unable to represent their interests on this important issue.”
“Senator Shaheen has failed to actively oppose her party’s attempt to ram this devastating legislation through the Senate. For months, Shaheen has sat on her hands and refused to join Senator Ayotte in her fight to protect small businesses. Yesterday’s missed vote serves as another reminder that Jeanne Shaheen has been an unaccomplished and ineffective senator who has failed to provide any leadership for New Hampshire in Washington.”


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.
