The New Hampshire Republican Party has formally requested information from Manchester officials regarding the city’s handling of a deadly norovirus outbreak at a restaurant co-owned by Democratic Congressman Chris Pappas. The outbreak occurred the Sunday before Thanksgiving at the Puritan Backroom restaurant, leaving 18 people sick and one dead. But the location and details of the outbreak weren’t made public until reported by New Hampshire Journal in late December.
In a letter to Manchester’s Democratic Mayor Joyce Craig and other city officials, NHGOP Chairman Steve Stepanek notes the problematic timeline and asks for clarification about what these officials knew and when they knew it.
