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.
