Here is something for you to consider while I try to figure out why our County Delegation (our state legislators) have filed a bill to change State Law such that in all Counties in NH - except for Rockingham county - will have money disbursed by the Treasurer at the request of the (elected) County Commissioners... and in Rockingham County it is not the (elected) CC's but the Delegation designee that can authorize disbursements. Convenient that the legislators are moving to remove power from other elected officials and give it to themselves.
Watch the Legislative Page to read what I find out.
In the mean time, I am sure you will find this as interesting as I did:
