Ryan Mahoney joined us for our March meeting to discuss what the numbers reveal – for 2020 and past elections – about Democratic voting trends, factors, aberrations, and more.  He prepared this analysis as Chair of the Data Subcommittee of the Blue Hampshire Task Force.  Click here for the full report and a summary of his findings.

At the June meeting our Legislator Brian Sullivan briefed us on what is happening in Concord, where the Republicans are now the majority party and hence run the show. We will need to work hard next year to correct this situation!

Legislative Update & “For The People” Strategy Headline Grantham Dems Meeting Monday at 7:00pm.

   Election law changes, school vouchers, “decisive concepts” bans, tax cuts for the very rich, environmental threats, and more!  There’s still time to stop the Republican-controlled legislature from taking state policies totally off the rails.

   Our own State Reps Lee Oxenham and Linda Tanner (invited) will be joining us with an update on votes to date, Committees of Conference, and what can be done to fix the budget by the June 26th deadline.

   The “For The People” Act is also on a fast track: voting in the Senate is expected June 23!  This is our backup to the irresponsible bills in the legislature.  You can help dispel the myths.
