New Hampshire State House Bicentennial

The next time you visit the New Hampshire State House it will be 200 years old. The current State House opened its doors on June 2, 1819. There will be commemorative events all week, including opening ceremonies and tours this Sunday afternoon. On Thursday, there is a joint session and picnic honoring all legislators, current and former. If you plan on attending Thursday and you are not a current representative, please consider parking at the Everett Arena and take a shuttle bus to the State House. Also, there are some very interesting original documents on display such as an 1789 copy of the bill of rights (with all 12 of the articles!).

For more details, see the full schedule at the link below.

The NHLA is a volunteer-driven organization that values the input and participation of all its members. In order to be the most effective advocates for liberty possible, a survey has been sent via email to all current members. Please take a moment (it’s really short, we promise!) to let us know what issues are most important to you, how you think we could be more effective in our mission, and what areas you may be able to volunteer to help us reach our goals.

If you did not receive the survey, but believe you should have, please email membership@nhliberty.org after checking your spam folder.

2019 Mid-Term Legislator Scores

The following data is a mid-term score for each representative and senator based on pro-liberty and anti-liberty roll call votes through crossover. It represents a simplified version of the scoring that is completed at the end of the session. Votes in this report are unweighted with regard to the liberty impact of each bill and no adjustments have been made for pro- or anti-liberty bill sponsorship. As is the case with the final Liberty Rating, missed roll call votes negatively impact the score regardless of whether an absence was excused or not.

April 2019 Board Election Results

The results of the April 2019 Board of Directors election are in!  The newest member of the Board is incoming Chair, Holly Beene Seal, who handily won her seat with 90% of the vote. Holly has been a prolific member of the Bill Review team and has been an active participant at Board meetings. We are excited for what her future involvement will bring!

Congratulations are also in order for Jaime Prout, who is returning for her second term as Secretary after receiving 97% of the vote. One of Jaime’s duties is to make sure we all stay informed about the up-to-date happenings at NHLA, and we are pleased to have her continue in that role.

The election was conducted with approval voting. Of 69 respondents:

  1. Chair:
    1. Holly Beene Seal — 60 votes
    2. None of the Above —  6 votes
    3. Paul Best (write-in) — 1 vote
    4. Skipped — 2
  2. Secretary:
    1. Jaime Prout — 65 votes
    2. None of the Above — 2 votes
    3. Skipped — 2

The Board would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Keith Ammon, outgoing Chair, for all he has brought to the organization. To say that Keith has been a dedicated member of the Board is a vast understatement, and his many contributions as a leader and activist have been instrumental in keeping the NHLA at the forefront of the fight for liberty in New Hampshire. We look forward to his continued participation.
