Results of the 2013 Seacoast Region city elections for Dover, Portsmouth, Rochester and Somersworth via the New Hampshire Freedom blog.
Dover – In Dover, Karen Weston, a small business owner and supporter of the Dover tax cap, beat Rocky D’Andrea in the mayoral race.

Kennedy and Zelita F. Morgan were also elected. Ken Smith, who famously took the APT tax pledge in 2009 and then turned around and voted to increase taxes lost some support between the 2009 election and 2011 election.

The Seacoast Annual Freedom Expo takes place on Saturday, April 27 2013 at the historic Exeter Town Hall from 10:00 a.m until 6:00 p.m.
There will be workshops, tables, speakers, vendors, and other activities all day long. This is similar to a free, one day version of the Liberty Forum, and we expect an even larger crowd than last year, especially with no admission cost. For vendors and groups, tables are still available for $35, or $50 for a spot near the main entrance.
The Exeter Town Hall is in downtown Exeter, New Hampshire on Front Street.
Learn more about this event and RSVP on the Facebook event. https://www.facebook.com/events/379324032151010/
