These comments from Senator Shaheen's campaign come in response to heavy criticism she has been receiving, both locally by news outlets such as WMUR-TV, and nationally in publications such as the Daily Caller, for refusing to hold Town Hall meetings with her constituents. According to her own website, Senator Shaheen hasn't held a Town Hall meeting since August of 2012. It is important to note that in the WMUR-TV story, Shaheen's campaign was even caught trying to inflate the number of "public" events she has held by misleading a reporter on the subject.
For almost two years, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire has been calling on Senator Shaheen to hold a public forum. She has refused. We released a website last week titled, www.WhyIsSheHiding.com, to highlight her refusal to meet with her constituents.
Considering Senator Shaheen will not hold a Town Hall meeting, on multiple occasions, we have tried to attend what her campaign is now trying to pass off as "open town halls and roundtables." While she might be trying to convince Granite Staters that these events were public, our video footage proves that they were anything but open and transparent.

Reminding New Hampshire: The video section of our website
For well over a year, we have been capturing videos of our elected officials discussing (and sometimes refusing to discuss) the important issues facing New Hampshire residents.
After we release them, we catalog the videos and put them up our website. You can find them all HERE.
We encourage you to go through the videos and watch some of them. A few you might remember seeing, others you could have missed, but the important thing to note is that after watching them, we need you to share them on your own social media accounts or email them to a friend. Together, we can help educate Granite Staters on what their elected officials are really up to in Concord and Washington D.C.
Volunteers: We always need your help!
From phone banks to writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper, we need the help of volunteers like you to fight for a stronger New Hampshire.
If you are interested in donating a couple of hours of your time towards ensuring our values of limited government, less spending, and lower taxes are represented, please email Matt@StrongNH.com
