NHDP - Under Frank Guinta Overall Crime in Manchester is Up 5%

Despite sharp increases in crime, former mayor continues to lie to public claiming violent crime went down


Concord - The Union Leader reported yesterday that citywide crime increased nearly 5% during Frank Guinta's last year as mayor of Manchester.   Violent crime was up even more, increasing nearly 10%, and according to the Union Leader "burglaries boom(ed)" last year, increasing 30%.  (Manchester Police Department, "Crime Data," accessed 1/21/10), (Union Leader, 2/23/2010)


Despite Frank Guinta's campaign promises to make crime a top priority he repeatedly proposed budgets that slashed public safety.   Guinta promised to add four additional officers to the Manchester police force last October at a Press Conference (Union Leader, 2/14/2010), but then proposed slashing funding for public safety in the FY2009 budget.  


Police Chief, David Mara now estimates that by June the city will be short of a full compliment by nine officers.  (Union Leader, 2/23/2010)  Guinta's budget also proposed an 80% cut to neighborhood watch programs, and laying-off 25 firefighters.  [Union Leader, 04/22/2008; 5/17/2009; 4/23/08] 


"Crime has skyrocketed in Manchester under Frank Guinta's tenure as mayor," said Derek Richer press secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party.  "And it's a direct result of his decision to slash funding for police and first responders."


Despite the sharp increase in crime, Frank Guinta is now traveling the state on his "Let's be Frank about..." tour claiming that violent crime actually decreased.  Today, in the Laconia Citizen Frank Guinta claimed that he "was also proud of reducing violent crime in Manchester."  Guinta then seemed to realize that this statement was directly contradicted by the facts on the ground and followed up by stressing that he was "an honest, upright guy." (Laconia Citizen, 2/24/2010)


"Now Guinta is just lying about his record, hoping no one will notice," continued Richer.  "Frank Guinta needs to start speaking frankly with the voters about his failure to keep Manchester streets safe."

John McCain Has Gone Crazy
Facing a strong challenge from  J.D. Hayworth for the primary election in August, John McCain is desperate

John McCain
McCain is saying now that back in the Fall 2008, "Bush called him in off the campaign trail, saying a worldwide economic catastrophe was imminent and that he needed his help. 'I don't know of any American, when the president of the United States calls you and tells you something like that, who wouldn't respond,' McCain said. 'And I came back and tried to sit down and work with Republicans and say, 'What can we do?'"

Problem is the event never happened!

Chris Sununu Statement on Salem Toll Booth Proposal 



EXETER – Today, Chris Sununu, Republican candidate for the District 3 Executive Council seat, issued the following statement:
“NHDOT Commissioner George Campbell’s scheme to erect a toll booth in Salem, New Hampshire is terribly misguided and will destroy the retail economy that supports the southern region of our state.  What’s worse, Bev Hollingworth and John Lynch are allowing Campbell, who was never elected by voters, to dictate a policy agenda without considering the interests of the residents and small business owners who live and operate along the southern border. That should never happen.
“Bev Hollingworth’s ‘go along to get along’ style is not what citizens deserve.  These are tough economic times, and the last thing our state’s small businesses need is another tax.  Make no mistake; a toll booth on Interstate-93 in Salem is a tax. It’s a tax on small businesses that depend on consumers who cross the border to shop, and it’s a tax on commuters who live in New Hampshire and drive to Massachusetts for their jobs.
“Hollingworth approved the state’s 10-year highway plan having never considered the full costs, and now she wants to raise revenue on the backs of New Hampshire’s commuters and small businesses to pay for her short-sightedness.  
“The residents of District 3 do not want a toll booth in Salem and they deserve an Executive Councilor who will hold the governor and his bureaucrats accountable.  In the Council, I will not be afraid to lead on difficult issues, and I will not hesitate to stand-up to unelected agency heads who try to circumvent the will of the people.”

Executive Council District 3 consists of the following cities and towns: Atkinson, Barrington, Brentwood, Chester, Danville, Dover, Durham, East Kingston, Epping, Exeter, Fremont, Greenland, Hampstead, Hampton, Hampton Falls, Kensington, Kingston, Lee, Madbury, New Castle, Newfields, Newington, Newmarket, Newton, North Hampton, Nottingham, Plaistow, Portsmouth, Rye, Salem, Sandown, Seabrook, South Hampton, Stratham, and Windham.



NetRight Daily: ObamaCare, Jobs Bill and More 

The New and Improved ObamaCare:  Yesterday, Barack Obama unveiled his latest, "new-and-improved" version of ObamaCare. Sadly for the American people, it's more of the same. According to the New York Times, the Obama proposal "sticks largely to the version passed by the Senate in December." This is therefore the same proposal that 58 percent of voters overwhelmingly oppose, as reported by Rasmussen Reports. A full 61 percent want Congress to simply start over.

Uncommon Knowledge:  The latest episode features an interview with Rupert Murdoch, the man behind News Corp. and Fox News.

The Really Dark Side of Card Check:  Many observers are justly alarmed by one of the biggest pending thank-you gifts from the Obama administration to Big Labor—the proposed Employee "Free Choice" Act (EFCA). Already passed by the U.S. House of Representatives (HR 800), the measure would radically change how unions organize employees. Under federal law since 1935, employees have voted by secret ballot on whether to accept a union as their bargaining agent.

Stay On Top of Electoral Manipulation:  After being pummeled in '06 and '08, Republicans are regaining their footing. With the potential for huge gains this November -- including the possibility of retaking the House and Senate -- the base isn't going to let anything as mundane as electoral manipulation dampen their spirits.

CHQ - Viguerie: Tea Party is New, Independent 4th Leg at Conservative Table 

(Manassas, Virginia)  The following is a statement by Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of, on his editorial "A Fourth Leg For Conservatives' Big Table" at Investor's Business Daily today describing the Tea Party Movement as an historic, independent fourth leg at the conservative movement's big table.

"Coming on its one year anniversary, much is being written about the phenomenon called the Tea Party Movement; some accurate, and some fantastical. At its core, it is a revolution of fed-up middle-class Americans, and a response to political arrogance.

"For over three decades, the conservative movement consisted of three legs: (1) limited government/fiscal restraint, (2) national defense, and (3) traditional-values conservatives. However, many of the conservative movement's leaders became an appendage of the Republican Party. Not so with the Tea Party Movement, which puts principle above loyalty to politicians.

"The Tea Party Movement developed independently from the conservative movement, but is a natural ally to the cause of small, limited, constitutional government. The Tea Party has started where the conservative movement once did, as outsiders to the political establishment.

"The Tea Party Movement is now the fourth leg of the conservatives' big table. It not only brings millions of new people to the political process, it also brings more energy, enthusiasm and excitement to politics than we've seen in the last 100 years.

"I have been working and waiting 50 years for this populist, principled and constitutional groundswell against big government and the quasi-socialistic, crony capitalistic establishment institutions that have been abusing power and trust at the expense of hard-working Americans, their children and their grandchildren.

"In just one year, the Tea Party has become the fastest-growing political movement perhaps in history. It is getting bigger by the day, and efforts by the political and media establishment to denigrate it merely fuel it. I expect more defeats in primaries this year than ever in history.

            "Most big-government incumbents would be well advised to follow Senators Bayh, Dodd and Dorgan and voluntarily retire, or the revitalized conservative movement led by Tea Partiers will enforce retirement this November."
