N.H. AG’s office knew of Nashua investigation

NASHUA — State Attorney General Joseph Foster said his office has been part of a police investigation into Mayor Donnalee Lozeau of Nashua and her husband from the time it started.

The mayor said police have been investigating her and her husband, a former bail commissioner, after someone he sued made allegations about him to the police. She said it started in 2009, was closed without any charges, then reopened this year.

Foster, who became attorney general this year, told The Telegraph of Nashua that the Police Department reached out to the attorney general’s office in 2009 and kept the office informed of the investigation.


It is not clear if the office will be involved in any review of the investigation; Foster said he could possibly ask a county attorney.

The mayor and her husband, David Lozeau, said the investigation started after David Lozeau filed a lawsuit against someone and that person made allegations about him to police.

David Lozeau told The Telegraph that the 2008 lawsuit was filed over a truck against a man named Tom Brennan. Lozeau said the allegations — which included bid-rigging, drug use, and misconduct — are not true.

Brennan’s address and phone number could not immediately be determined.

A number for a Tom Brennan in Nashua was disconnected. Messages were left Friday for two men with the name in Hillsborough County.
