About Us

      We are a diverse group of Hampton residents from all walks of life and political persuasions. We are advocates for the Hampton taxpayer.  Our objective is to assure that value is being obtained for the tax dollars that we are asked to pay. We closely scrutinize all financial issues associated with the town of Hampton and its schools as they affect taxes and advocate accordingly. We can do this very effectively since we are free of any special interest influences hence remain objective on all issues. We choose to remain anonymous so that special interests cannot focus on character assassinations but are forced to focus on the substance that we report or give recommendations on.

Cable TV Fund concern
By Norm Silberdick @ 12:51 PM :: 146 Views :: 1 Comments

Our recommendation was to modify the Franchise Fees in the Comcast agreement to reduce them from 4% to 2%, which in effect gives the cable subscribers, who also happen to be taxpayers, a reduction to their monthly cable fee charges. While there is great appreciation for the dedicated Cable Committee staff, there needs to be more leadership and direction. As the money accumulates it will ultimately be squandered on ...
