WHAT IS THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL?
The Executive Council of New Hampshire has the responsibility over the administration of the affairs of the State. The five member board must approve state contracts over $25,000, which represents the vast majority of spending in the state.
Executive Councilors serve as watchdogs of the state treasury to ensure state departments do not spend more than was authorized by the legislature, nor allocate funds for items or services which the legislature has not sanctioned. This includes the vital 10 year highway plan, for which our district has over $125,000,000 allocated.
Finally, the Executive Council approves the appointments of all Judges, Commissioners, Notary Public, Justice of Peace, Commissioners of Deeds and hears Pardon Requests.
At its core, the Executive Council is the people's ultimate check on the Executive Branch and ensures that the state government is as fiscally conservative as possible.
