Manchester Economic Development Office Loans $100,000 to Support New Restaurant On Elm Street Manchester 

Manchester, NH – One of downtown Manchester’s seasoned restaurateurs has received a loan from the Manchester Economic Development Office (MEDO) in preparation for the grand opening of what is soon to become one of downtown’s staple eateries.

Rosa Paolini will open XO on Elm at 815 Elm Street on October 5th 2009. The new restaurant will be serving fresh New England cuisine with a touch of international fusion. XO will offer moderately-priced family dining, business catering, takeout services and a separate function hall for larger parties and events that will be available 365 days a year. The restaurant will also be providing free parking behind the building.

"I believe in downtown Manchester and the wonderful entertainment, nightlife, family and fine dining options we offer. I’m thrilled to again be part of the dynamic downtown scene and to offer a new dining option for families coming downtown for a game or show," said Paolini. "I want to be part of making downtown Manchester a dining destination."

The $100,000 loan was made via the city’s Revolving Loan Fund (RLF), which is aimed at helping to create new businesses, grow companies already in business and create new jobs in Manchester. The Manchester Development Corporation (MDC) significantly recapitalized the Revolving Loan Fund this year, contributing to the strength of the program. In Paolini’s case, the RLF loan, which was funded with MDC dollars, supplements a loan from St. Mary’s Bank. Paolini expects the opening of XO on Elm to create at least 15 new jobs over the next two years; job creation is a stipulation associated with using RLF funds.

"We view the Revolving Loan Fund as an invaluable tool to encourage the growth of new and existing business and the creation of jobs in Manchester," said Jay Minkarah, director of economic development for the City of Manchester. "The Economic Development Office is here to provide resources, assistance and guidance for local businesses and the RLF is one of the most effective tools we have to do so."

Paolini has remodeled the dining area and exterior of the restaurant, and has created a new façade for the space. She has also received $3,500 in grant monies through the Facade Improvement Program which is also administered through the City’s Economic Development Office.

"We believe in customer service. We want XO to be casual and affordable with every single dish that is made to order. We will be offering a selection of vegetarian and vegan options along with a kids menu. Overall we want this to be a destination restaurant where everyone feels welcome to gather and celebrate," said Rosa Paolini

NH House Republicans Begin the Charge to Cut Spending & Taxes 

Concord—House Republicans have wasted little time in setting the tone for the upcoming legislative session.  If the minority party under Rep. Sherman Packard (r-Londonderry) has their way, the next session will once again be a battle over high taxes and increased spending.  This week marked the first opportunity for legislators to file legislation for the 2010 session.  On Monday, House Republican leadership delivered six bills to repeal taxes and return money back to the cities and towns, while at the same time cutting the overspending that has been the mantra of the Democrats since they took control of the New Hampshire House three years ago.

 “Back in April we offered an alternative budget that balanced the state budget without creating any new taxes or raising any of the existing taxes.  But the Democrats chose to ignore our suggestions and instead proposed a budget that would cost the taxpayers of New Hampshire $133 million in additional property taxes,” said Packard.  “While budgets across the country saw an average two percent decrease in their state spending, the Democrats in Concord increased state spending by nearly 7 percent.

In the last session, State House Democrats passed more than 30 tax and fee increases that, added to the nearly two dozen increases in the previous biennium, brought the total to over 50 new or increased taxes and fees under their leadership.  This week House Republicans filed legislation to:

     Restore revenue sharing to cities and towns.

     Repeal the $30 surcharge on motor vehicle registrations.

     Repeal the “campground” that was added on to the Rooms & Meals Tax.

     Repeal the LLC tax.

     Repeal the freeze on the share of Rooms & Meals taxes that goes to municipalities.

 

According to Rep. Packard the House Republicans will be prepared to offer matching cuts to make sure that the repeal of any taxes does not have a negative impact on an already huge budget deficit.

 “The Democrats didn’t care to listen to us last April and they probably will ignore the citizens of this state again this session.  But Republicans are committed to a balanced budget and cutting the necessary taxes and spending to accomplish this.  It’s time for us to return to fiscal sanity and put an end to the ‘income tax’ talk that Democrats have recently brought to the table*,” concluded Packard.
