Mr. Griffin’s comparisons to other towns are fantasy.
“While the tax rate has increased, Griffin said it’s important to note that Hampton’s tax rate is still relatively lower than in neighboring towns. I look at what’s going to be happening in Exeter and Newmarket. Hampton’s tax rate is a bargain compared to some towns like Durham,” Griffin said. “Hampton’s tax rate is not going up as fast as the other towns around it.”
Selectmen Griffin's tax comparisions reflect not "relatively lower tax rate", but in fact actual fantasy.
