This is the twelfth annual Liberty Rating issued by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, based on 50 roll call votes in the House and 22 in the Senate. This year the House earned a collective grade of C and the Senate a C+. We’d like to congratulate our Legislator of the Year, Dan Itse. Rep. Itse, currently serving his eighth term, received a perfect score, and a grade of A+.
The Board election has closed, and the results are as follows:
Darryl W. Perry - 16
Lisa McGunnigle - 58
Kevin Taylor - 2
None of the Above - 9
Thank you to all those who ran, and congratulations to the winner!
Rep. Shem Kellogg (Rockingham- District 14) was one of seven State Reps to receive a perfect score on the NHLA's Liberty Rating in 2015. Sadly, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic colon cancer on Christmas Eve. Since then, he has been undergoing chemotherapy at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
