Let me know if you'd like to serve on a state board or commission

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

In the coming weeks, the governor of New Hampshire will nominate various New Hampshire citizens to serve on any of the 300-plus state boards or commissions. As your executive Ccouncilor I would like to hear from you if you would like to serve on some of these state boards or commissions. Having North Country and Lakes Region citizens serving on these state boards or commissions are critical to having your voices heard on many important topics in state government.

A list of these state boards and commissions can be found at http://sos.nh.gov/GC2.aspx. The type of openings can range from the Board of Licensed Dietitians to a Water Treatment Plant Advisory Committee. If interested, please send a letter of interest along with a resume, to Meagan Rose in the Governor's Office (271-8787) and a copy to Executive Councilor Kenney, State House, Room 207, 107 North Main Street, Concord, NH 03301 (271-3632).

Remember, the Executive Council welcomes public input on state board and commission nominations that are brought forward by the governor for consideration and confirmation. As a your councilor, we are trying to fit the best people with the right talents for each state board and commission.

I look forward hearing from you.

Joseph D. Kenney

Executive Councilor District 1
