Federal Candidates to Speak at Taxpayer Event with Grassroots Groups 


HILLSBOROUGH, NH — CNHT is pleased to announce that  P.J. O'Rourke, political humorist, journalist, and NH resident, will make a guest appearance at their 12th Annual Taxpayer Reunion Picnic.


P.J. O'Rourke has been making fun of politics for 40 years.  He is the author of "Parliament of Whores -- A Lone Humorist Attempts to Explain the Entire U.S. Government" and the forthcoming book of political theory, "Don't Vote -- It Just Encourages the Bastards".  He is currently a contributing editor at The Weekly Standard.


The Coalition of NH Taxpayers, NH's foremost taxpayer advocacy group, will hold its 12th Annual Taxpayer Reunion Picnic on Saturday, July 10th from 12PM - 3:00PM at the Hillsborough American Legion #59, 538 West Main Street, Hillsborough, NH 03244. 


As this is an election year, Candidates for Governor, US Senate and US Congress will speak, and a straw poll will be taken. Many State candidates and grassroots groups will be in attendance. State candidates will have an opportunity to take the traditional CNHT "Taxpayer Protection Pledge".


"This is an opportunity to mingle and mix with like-minded activists while meeting the candidates up close as well as a rare opportunity to hear Mr O'Rourke speak in person about his impressions of the growing conservative grassroots movement in NH, and across the country," said Ed Naile, CNHT Chairman.


Cost is $15/person for cookout fare, children 12 and under free, and the building is air conditioned. Space is limited. Tickets may be obtained on the web at: http://www.cnht.org/picnic2010.php
