(CONCORD, NH) The Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy today announced the 2nd Josiah Bartlett Dinner will take place on Tuesday, December 4th at the Grappone Center in Concord. The dinner will feature a Fireside Chat with three former New Hampshire Governors and longtime supporters of the organization, Governors Craig Benson, Steve Merrill, and John H. Sununu.
“After a long campaign season, we hope people will enjoy hearing three wise friends of ours in a fun and freewheeling chat about the future of the state,” said Center Chairman Rich Ashooh.
(CONCORD) With more than a dozen vetoes this week, Governor John Lynch has now vetoed more bills than any New Hampshire Governor in the last quarter century. The Hopkinton Democrat, finishing his fourth and final term in the Corner Office, has also been overturned by the Legislature twice as often as any of his recent predecessors.
The New Hampshire House and Senate will convene to next week to consider whether at least 14 bills should become law, notwithstanding the Governor’s objections. A survey of legislative records going back to 1989 shows that Lynch surpassed the man he beat in 2004 for the Governor with the most vetoes in a single term.
