Mayor Ruais’s Statement on AMR’s latest overdose statistics
City OD and fatality numbers are down, creating hopeful trend

MANCHESTER, NH – Mayor Jay Ruais issued the following statement regarding American Medical Rescue’s (AMR) latest report on overdoses in the city of Manchester:

   “AMR’s latest numbers regarding the opioid epidemic are very hopeful.  As a person in recovery, I know that addiction is a very challenging issue and one life lost is too many. While this is one month of data, I’m encouraged by the continued trend line showing we are on track to have 29% fewer suspected opioid overdoses and 14% fewer fatalities this year over last. This is an incredibly positive update, particularly if these numbers continue to hold. I want to thank Chris Stawasz and American Medical Rescue, our first responders and our Health Department for their continued efforts to address this issue, and save lives.”

Mayor Ruais Announces Compromise Changes to City of Manchester Procurement Code

Mayor Ruais Announces Compromise Changes to City of Manchester Procurement Code
Compromise will bring transparency and efficiency to process

MANCHESTER, NH – Mayor Jay Ruais today announced an important compromise agreement to the City of Manchester's procurement ordinances, developed in collaboration with the Associated Builders and Contractors of New Hampshire and Vermont (ABC) and the New Hampshire Building and Construction Trades Council (NHBCTC).

“Last night, the BMA voted unanimously to direct city staff to draft an ordinance amendment based off the compromise we reached. This amendment exemplifies the collaborative spirit of effective governance," stated Mayor Ruais. "By bringing together diverse stakeholders, unions and industry, a solution has been crafted that will benefit our city, foster economic growth, and ensure fair practices in our procurement processes."

The compromise agreement addresses key issues in the procurement process, aiming to enhance transparency, efficiency, and inclusivity. It represents a balanced approach that takes into account the needs and perspectives of both the construction industry and the labor community.

"The partnership between ABC and the Building and Construction Trades Council demonstrates the power of dialogue and compromise," Ruais continued. "This is a testament to what can be achieved when we work together towards common goals. I deeply appreciate the work of both of these groups in coming together to hammer out this deal"

“We are grateful to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen for being responsive to the requests of industry. The reforms today replace vagueness with clarity and measurable metrics. ABC’s contractors work every day to deliver quality projects safely and competitively in the community which they call home. We look forward to helping build Manchester’s bright future,” said Josh Reap, President & CEO, Associated Builders & Contractors, NH/VT Chapter.

David Spechuilli, President the NHBCTC added, “The New Hampshire Building and Construction Trades Council works every day to lift New Hampshire workers and help them find good-paying jobs that will allow them to provide for themselves and their families. We believe that the amendments to Chapter 39 will not only protect the workers contracted to perform City construction contracts but also protect Manchester taxpayers. We would like to thank Mayor Ruais for bringing the stakeholders together to draft this amendment. We look forward to its passage and the opportunities it will bring to local workers and businesses. “

"I encourage all members of the Board of Aldermen to support this effort," Mayor Ruais concluded. "It is an important step forward for our city, illustrating that through cooperation and compromise, we can achieve meaningful progress that benefits everyone."

Mayor Ruais statement regarding City Budget
BMA passes 7 out of 8 budget resolutions, sends record amount of $227.9M to schools

MANCHESTER, NH – Mayor Jay Ruais issued the following statement today regarding the status of the city’s budget:
     “Since the beginning of my term, I’ve remarked on the difficult nature of our current budget situation.  It’s being driven by historically high COLA’s, a substantial increase to health care costs for city employees, a carried surplus debit from last year, and a significant increase to our overlay account.  In total, this represents a $10.6 million hole. Last night, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved 7 out of 8 budget resolutions with broad support. This includes $227.9 million for our schools, a compromise amount, that represents the largest ever appropriated. I look forward to working with the Board to discuss the remaining resolution, and am confident we will strike an agreement that will deliver results for our city, and our taxpayers, while setting Manchester up for success.”
