Ouch: NH town wants Obama to cover cost of visit to tell them how wonderful a prez he is
Well, it is his show, after all. The town would normally cover the cost of a straight presidential visit; however, this is a campaign stop. So, they want Team Obama to pick up the tab for the extra security and any other special costs associated with the event.
I'm certain it won't be a problem. Obama is all about fairness, right? I just hope his people don't figure out a way to force the taxpayers to pay for it. Heckuva a job picking this location, Team Obama. Heckuva job!!
A New Hampshire town is asking the Obama campaign to foot the up to $30,000 bill for the president's upcoming campaign stop in their city.
MyFoxBoston reports the town of Durham is asking Obama's campaign to reimburse the estimated $20,000 to $30,000 needed to fund additional police and fire safety services during his Monday visit to the University of New Hampshire.
"Community leaders do not believe that costs associated with the campaign should be borne by local taxpayers," the release says according to MyFoxBoston.
