Concord – A new poll released last night by the University of New Hampshire shows a steady decline in Congresswoman Annie Kuster and Congresswoman Shea-Porter popularity. According to the survey, both Shea-Porter and Kuster have a dismal -1% favorability rating.
“Representatives Shea-Porter and Kuster are losing support because Granite Staters are fed up with their votes for higher taxes, reckless spending and more debt,” said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. “Kuster and Shea-Porter have gone to Washington and betrayed their constituents by championing extreme, job killing policies that will grow government and bankrupt our country. They are completely out of step with New Hampshire’s fiscally responsible values and unable to address the serious challenges that are threatening America’s solvency.”
The survey found that only 31% of First District residents have a favorable opinion of Congresswoman Shea-Porter, while 32% have an unfavorable opinion. That’s down from the 49% favorable/28% unfavorable ratings that Shea-Porter received in UNH’s August poll.
Second District residents have a 29% favorable and 30% unfavorable opinion of Congresswoman Annie Kuster, down from a 35% favorable/25% unfavorable rating in UNH’s October poll.

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.
