Andy Martin - National landmark hotel The Balsams Supreme Court appeal; New Hampshire GOP fray

New Hampshire Corruption-fighter Andy Martin continues battle to save national landmark hotel The Balsams

Andy is expected home in New Hampshire in time to join the contest to choose a new GOP state chairman

(MANCHESTER, NH)(December 6, 2012) Andy Martin, New Hampshire’s leading corruption fighter, has sent a Notice of Appeal to the New Hampshire Supreme Court seeking to unravel what Andy calls a corrupt scheme to turnover a national landmark hotel to real estate speculators who vandalized the facility. A copy of the Notice of Appeal is an ATTACHMENT to emailed versions of this news story.

Andy’s notice of appeal will be delivered to the New Hampshire Supreme Court by overnight delivery service on December 6th.

Andy 26-page Notice of Appeal contains three pages of reasons why the New Hampshire Supreme court should review the inaction of New Hampshire Attorney General Michael Delaney in approving a transfer of The Balsams national landmark hotel to real estate speculators who promptly trashed the interior of the historic facility, thereby precluding an immediate reopening of The Balsams.

“The hotel never should have been closed by the Tillotson Trust,” Andy says. “But the buyers could have immediately reopened, and remodeled over time, as every other historic hotel has been renovated. The ‘buyers’ never had any plan to promptly reopen the hotel. The crooks who assumed control also closed a culinary program that offered a career path for North Country youngsters. Three hundred families derived an income from the hotel, in an economically struggling region. I intend to see that the perpetrators of these crimes are held accountable. Pages 23-25 of my Notice of Appeal outline the reasons why the New Hampshire Supreme Court should hear the case.”

Andy has been on an extended family vacation since the presidential election. He is expected to return home to New Hampshire to engage in full-throated participation in the fight to choose a successor New Hampshire GOP chairman.
