Town of Durham, NH Asks Barack Obama Campaign to Pay for Extra Scurity Costs for Upcoming Visit

 

The town of Durham, NH is asking the Obama campaign to pony up between $20,000 – $30,000 to pay for the extra security required for the Presidents upcoming visit to the Granite state. President Obama will be visiting the University of New Hampshire this coming Monday. Local officials do not believe that Obama’s campaign visit should be paid by the tax payers. An officials Presidential visit is one thing, but shilling for votes is another. Maybe the voters of NH will remember this at the ballot box in 2012.

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.

City officials say they usually would foot the bill for a presidential visit, but since this is a campaign stop they believe the Obama campaign should have to pay for the extra security.

One would think that maybe some of the bridal, birthday and anniversary gifts that Obama gets will help pay for the extra Obama security. Since we are dealing with New England, maybe Obama can add ‘Patriot Day’ gifts to his registry money grab?

      I wonder if Valerie Jarrett’s kid donated all her wedding gifts to Obama’s campaign.
      I also wonder how much Obama’a attending that wedding, along with the golf outing in Chicago, cost taxpayers.

      They should have just asked BO not to come or not provide the security.
