STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Fifteen

AN ADDRESS for the removal of certain state officials in the department of education.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

The House of Representatives and Senate in General Court convened, under Part 2, Article 73 of the New Hampshire Constitution, satisfied that the public good requires that Virginia Barry, commissioner of the department of education should no longer hold and retain her office and that there is reasonable cause for her removal, respectfully address and request the governor, with the advice and consent of the council, to remove Virginia Barry from office.

The House of Representatives and Senate in General Court convened, under Part 2, Article 73 of the New Hampshire Constitution, satisfied that the public good requires that Paul Leather, deputy commissioner of the department of education should no longer hold and retain his office and that there is reasonable cause for his removal, respectfully address and request the governor, with the advice and consent of the council, to remove Paul Leather from office.

The cause for removal of Virginia Barry and Paul Leather is that these individuals brought their respective offices and the judiciary into disrepute, exceeded their constitutional authority, abused their discretion, and perpetrated a fraud on the people of New Hampshire by implementing educational programs that fail to adhere to the principle of local control and thereby forced the increase of local taxes, thereby violating the provisions of the New Hampshire constitution, part I, article 6.
