NH Executive Councilor Ray Burton and Grafton County Commissioner Mike Cryans Visit PBPL 45 Class

On Thursday evening, October 7, Ray Burton, one of five members of the New Hampshire Executive Council, and Mike Cryans, one of three members of the Grafton County Commission, met with students in Professor Ron Shaiko’s PBPL 45: Introduction to Public Policy Research class over dinner to discuss the unique characteristics of New Hampshire state, county, and local governments.  New Hampshire is unique in its establishment of the Executive Council or Governor’s Council.  The state does not have a lieutenant governor; rather it has a five-member council with powers far greater than those of lieutenant governors in other states.  Dating back to 1679 the Council was adapted from the privy council model in place under the British monarchy at that time.
