WINDHAM — New Hampshire House Speaker William O'Brien received a warm welcome last night at a Town Hall forum hosted by a newly founded conservative group, the Southern New Hampshire 9.12 Project, which aims to leave its mark on Granite State politics.
O'Brien admitted this cost-cutting session was difficult and predicted challenging legislative sessions in the future as the federal government trims aid to states to save money.
The 9/12 Project was founded on the following 9 Principles and 12 Values:
The 912 Project is coming to Windham and this local, non-partisan group will be known as the Southern NH 912 Project. The organizers of the group describe themselves as conservatives who believe in our country's founding principals. They are passionate about the need for our government to return to those principles and operate according to the Constitution. Departure from those ideals threatens our liberty and has led to an escalation of government spending - so out of control, that we have already mortgaged the future of our children and grandchildren.
