Concord – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the State Senate Finance Committee rejecting the Democrats’ gas tax hike:
“Today’s vote serves as another reminder that the Republican led state Senate is the only thing standing between New Hampshire families and the Democrats’ reckless tax hikes. The Senate Finance Committee deserves credit for rejecting this disastrous gas tax increase and promoting fiscally responsible policies that will grow our economy.
“The House Democrat Leadership’s devastating gas tax would kill jobs, unfairly burden commuters and hurt small businesses. It is disgraceful that Governor Hassan would not pledge to veto a gas tax if it came to her desk.”

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.
