$300,000 Spent to “Beautify” New Hampshire

Reports this weekend from Foster’s Daily Democrat and the Laconia Citizen show that over $260,000 has been given to New Hampshire beauty schools as a part of the federal stimulus.

“The Empire Beauty School in Laconia was also the recipient of $250,000 in nonreimbursable direct financial aid,” while, “the Portsmouth Beauty School received $18,600 in ‘direct financial aid.”

These figures are coupled with almost $37,000 sent to the Bedford beauty school earlier in the week, as reported by NowHampshire.com.

Bud Fitch, the State’s stimulus czar, told NowHampshire.com his, “expectation is that these are federal student loan program payments.”

According to a progress report issued by the State stimulus office, only 96 new jobs have been created with the $330-plus million that state has received so far.
