An advocate for the homeless in New Hampshire is asking the state Supreme Court to strike down a tenting ban in the city of Rochester.
Don McCullough tells seacoastonline.com he believes the ordinance criminalizes homelessness and conflicts with the state’s public welfare law.
The retired Dover firefighter filed a suit last year after losing a lower court case that stemmed from his intentional violation of Rochester’s tenting ban. He said the ban essentially categorizes homeless people as “citizens without a country.”
