At the filing announcement Hutchinson said, "I believe in personal freedom, small government, and fiscal conservatism. I will continue standing up for Manchester and working hard on behalf of our great city."



Concord, NH- Today in the Democrat caucus Rep. Terie Norelli became the nominee for Speaker, which will be voted on Organization Day in the House. An election of Norelli will mean more of the same of her last term as Speaker, which included the 2010 ethics investigation cloud where her Majority Floor Leader, Dan Eaton (D-Stoddard) interfered in a State Liquor Commission investigation.

"When Terie Norelli was Speaker in 06-10 session, she was responsible for the back room budget deals, instituted an LLC income tax in the 2009 budget, and did not seek the immediate resignation of Rep. Dan Eaton under the cloud of an ethics investigation by the Legislative Ethics Committee under chairman Martin L. Gross," said New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald. "A return of Norelli will almost ensure a return of Eaton to House leadership.  With a Norelli/Eaton leadership team New Hampshire citizens can only expect more of the same destructive policies."

In 2010, Eaton, according to The Union Leader (March 6, 2010), tried to block an investigation on a tavern in Keene owned by a Democrat Keene City Councilor, and a political ally of Eaton's. The incident raised serious questions as to whether or not he violated Legislative Ethics Guidelines when he was accused of harassing Liquor Commission inspectors and his secret meeting with Commissioner Bodi. New Hampshire legislators are prohibited from "threaten[ing] reprisals or promis[ing] inducements of any kind to influence another so as to obtain special personal benefits for the legislator, the legislator's immediate family, or for certain constituents which would not be available to others under similar conditions."

"The Democrat leadership in the House will no doubt be ethically challenged," said MacDonald. "Another term for Speaker Norelli will continue this thread of lies and deceit for the New Hampshire taxpayers."

NHDP - ICYMI: Ovide Still Silent on Denouncing Alciere as GOP Convention Delegate

Rival Kevin Smith has denounced Tom Alciere who said "there's nothing wrong with slaughtering cops"


 Where is Ovide?


CONCORD - Republican gubernatorial candidate Ovide Lamontagne remains silent on whether he would oppose Representative Tom Alciere and his candidacy for delegate to the 2012 New Hampshire GOP Convention based on his detestable comments that "there's nothing wrong with slaughtering cops."


According to a tweet by James Pindell of WMUR Political Scoop, the former Representative from Hudson (formerly of Nashua) signed up to run for delegate to the New Hampshire Republican Convention on Friday. 


Lamontagne's GOP primary rival Kevin Smith denounced the former State Representative on Twitter, saying that "Republicans should oppose Alciere's bid to be a delegate or anything else in the Republican party."

How long will Ovide remain silent on this and other outrageous comments made by members of his own party against police, women, and mentally disabled individuals.


Shea-Porter files for office 

Concord, New Hampshire-  Today, former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, joined by her husband and supporters, filed as a candidate for Congress in the First Congressional District.  She released the following statement.   

“I am running for the United States House of Representatives. During my two terms serving the good people of New Hampshire's First District, I always worked for all of our citizens, and I never forgot that public office is a public trust.

I was honored to pass legislation to help active duty soldiers and veterans, families, working men and women, senior citizens, and students.   I believe that education is the key to prosperity, that renewable energy is key to our economic future and our national security, and that shipping jobs overseas hurts not just American workers but also our country. I believe that fostering job creation and investing in America and our people are both good business decisions and good moral decisions, and that we can reduce the debt without dismantling essential programs.

Our current Congress is passing legislation that will hurt average Americans, and they are bowing to special interests instead of focusing on job creation and good government. This must stop.

My parents lived the American dream and so have I.  I am running again because I believe we must keep America the land of opportunity and fairness for your children and mine.”
