A Big “Pig” Waddles NH Roads this Turkey Day Weekend

November 23, 2007

Keene, NH – New Hampshire drivers should be on the lookout for a hog on the road this weekend. It's not a Black Friday shopper who ate too much turkey, it's the Priorities New Hampshire "Pigmobile," and it's visiting malls and campaign events with a message aimed at federal spending priorities. Robert Way, a disabled Marine veteran from Keene, is behind the wheel of the Pigmobile, and he says it makes an important point.

"When people actually see the money, where it's going and the waste, that gets their attention and really motivates them to want to watch the news instead of the Jerry Springer show."

The Pigmobile travels all over the state, but Way says his plan for this weekend is to go where people will be gathering in the Keene vicinity.

"I'll definitely be driving around all the shopping areas. I'm going up and down Main Street and stopping at all the big shopping malls where there's going to be a lot of traffic."

The "Priorities Project" is attempting to get Presidential candidates talking about changing the way Washington spends money. They note that more than half of all federal discretionary spending goes to the Pentagon, while priorities like healthcare and Social Security share the "leftovers" with all other government programs.
