NHGOP STATEMENT ON PATRICK ARNOLD'S ENDORSEMENT OF JOYCE CRAIG

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding the endorsement of Joyce Craig for Mayor of Manchester by former Alderman Patrick Arnold, who have both supported spending that would open the door to overriding the city's tax cap and have a shared history of violating campaign finance law:
 
"Patrick Arnold's endorsement of Joyce Craig should come as no surprise considering their shared histories of breaking campaign finance law and voting to override Manchester's tax cap. Aldermen Craig and Arnold have violated the trust of their constituents by endangering the city's overwhelmingly popular tax cap and their mutual disrespect for both the rule of law and the will of the people make them unfit to lead New Hampshire's largest city."
 
In 2013, Patrick Arnold and Joyce Craig were directed by the New Hampshire Attorney General to cease and desist their illegal campaign activity and were forced to file the appropriate paperwork.
