Concord – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the House casino super committee voting to recommend that the full House kill SB 152:

“Governor Hassan’s fiscally irresponsible house of cards is beginning to collapse. Today’s vote is a major setback for her proposal to include $80 million in speculative gambling revenues to cover the massive spending increase in her state budget. Her proposal is so reckless that even prominent Democrats including outgoing Attorney General Michael Delaney and House Finance Chairman Mary Jane Wallner have spoken out against it and call her plan a ‘mistake.’ It is past time for the governor to come up with a “Plan B” to offset the non-existent and illegal revenue in her proposal.

“New Hampshire deserves a governor who is willing to show leadership and propose a responsible budget that does not rely on phony, fraudulent and illegal gambling revenue to balance our books. Republicans are committed to exposing the devastating impact of the governor’s budget and proposing real solutions to preserve the state’s fiscal integrity and maintain the New Hampshire Advantage.”

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.
