NHAC - Concord and Manchester Taxpayer's Get Their Day in Court

Manchester, NH – In the wake of an obvious political move to ignore the will of taxpayers in Concord and Manchester, NHAC and a group of local taxpayers in both communities filed an injunction to get their respective spending/tax caps on the November 2008 ballot. Those hearings have now been scheduled and the dates of those hearings are as follows:

Thursday, September 18, 2008 at 9:00 am in Merrimack Superior Court for Concord and Friday, September 26, 2008 at 9:00 am in Hillsborough County Superior Court North for Manchester.

“What we witnessed during the last few weeks was political posturing at its worst. A group of elected official’s unfortunate decision to ignore the law has brought us to this request for court action. The will of 6,000 plus taxpayers was usurped by the need of a few politicians to keep the tax and spend train on the tracks.” said Michael Biundo, Chairman NHAC.

The effort to limit spending in the communities of Rochester, Somersworth, Concord and Manchester garnered the signatures of over 8,000 registered voters combined. In recent weeks NHAC has been fielding calls from local taxpayers and taxpayer groups from across New Hampshire and plans on releasing our next group of targeted towns in the coming weeks.
