Last weekend, Senator Jeanne Shaheen was once again worrying about her own political career rather than spending time with New Hampshire constituents. In fact, she wasn't even in the Granite State. She was in California fundraising.
With pressure building due to the fact that Senator Shaheen rarely holds public events and hasn't hosted a real Town Hall meeting to meet with Granite Staters in years, in a Politico article on Saturday, "her office said she has a full week of events scheduled in New Hampshire and that they will send advisories on Monday."
Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire visited Senator Shaheen's Manchester office on Monday to request a full list of the events she will be attending for the week, as her office had promised to distribute on Monday in Politico.
In response, her Manchester staff told us that Senator Shaheen only has one public event that day and the staffer would only list the names of towns that the senator might be in throughout the week. Contrary to what was promised in Saturday's Politico article by her staff, her Manchester staffer said that they "do not do a list (of events) for the week." In addition, apparently the only way to be made aware of events where she will be present at is if you are a member of the media considering her website doesn't have an "events" section and you need to be on the "press list" to find out where Senator Shaheen will be at.

Interestingly enough, after we visited Senator Shaheen's office on Monday, throughout the week, she began releasing some events she would be attending the evening prior to each day. However, she never released the full week's schedule as promised in Politico. Furthermore, it is regrettable that it takes pressure from us and the media to make these events available to Granite Staters like you.
